A little bit about my week!

Here goes....

I had spent the day dancing and playing with Tillie as usual, I had put her favourite programme on - Fun song Factory, we have to watch it on YouTube as that is the only place I can find it now, it was first shown in 1994, it is full of nursery rhymes and action songs with Dave Benson-Phillips - absolutely must see for any parent and child! Sorry where was i? (As you will notice I get easily distracted!) We were busy dancing to the Hokey Cokey, the song had just finished and she sat in her lovely pink sofa chair that her Nanna had bought her, she got slightly excited about the next song and poked me straight in the eye. I am quite dramatic but this really did hurt - I couldn't open my eye and after about half an hour later it was getting worse it was not swollen and really red.
Tillie goes to her Nanna's house for two hours a week, that is the only time I can be apart from her as we just have far too much fun! My Partner Nick and I went into town to buy Tillie a Chad Valley Campervan tent  (which I will review soon!) I really couldn't see very well and it was extremely sore! So being a brave mummy I carried on but by the time I had put Tillie to bed my eye was really really sore which resulted in my sister having to take me up to A&E to find out that Tillie had scratched my Cornea and I needed antibiotic drops - the hospital staff found it highly amusing when I told them what had happened.

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We decided that we would go to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Today with it being so sunny outside.
We told Tillie we were going to see some animals, I love the way she repeats everything we say now, she managed to stay awake during the car journey and the whole way round the park.
She was more interested in the cat that was sunbathing near the entrance, I didn't think she was going to move as she kept saying "hewwo cat miaowww".
She liked the Meercats and the play area is near the entrance so she was quite happily swinging away looking at the horses.
It is a nice place to go, I wouldn't say that you could spend a whole day there as there isn't a lot to do but for under 5's it is ideal. They can run around, go and pat the sheep and goats, walk through the Lemur park and get up close to the Wallabies.
The food there isn't the best and is very expensive for 2xsausage chips and beans and two soft drinks it came to £15.85!!!…

I will never wear big pants ever again!

So let me give you the scenario - I read that a lot of women swear by tummy control pants and wondered what all of the fuss was about so I ordered a pair from a well-known high street online shop. I ordered size 8 to be completely honest I really didn't need them I have always been petite but I got it into my head that i needed some! I wanted to wear a dress to my partners football presentation evening (sounds glam doesn't it but it was just in the pub which we run, people sometimes expect you to make an effort and with being a village WAG it would be rude not to!)

I haven't got the greatest self-confidence and people are always lovely to me and tell me I look nice but I never believe them and I always buy clothes but never think I can wear them so chicken out!

I thought maybe these miracle pants would boost my confidence, the only time I have ever had boobs was when I was pregnant and breastfeeding, without the good old gel bras I would be lost! So I didn't want any…
