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 …

Wedding Dress - did you love yours?

I've been wedding dress shopping twice in the last month, with my niece and today with my sister. It has got me thinking, would pick the same dress again? .... To be completely honest, Robbie Williams picked my dress! I believe if he comes on the radio then it is a sign that it is the right decision and it just so happened that I put this dress on and he came on the radio! I originally wanted a low key wedding, I didn't want a fancy dress. However, my mum said that we should maybe do the wedding dress shopping properly just for experience and my idea of a £250 dress quickly jumped to over £1100 all because Robbie Williams sent me the sign! My wonderful mum bought my dress for me! We had a low budget wedding and the big dress was not part of it! I did win £1000 worth of bridesmaid dresses though! They were beautiful! All made to measure and my nieces looked amazing! My dress was a Maggie Sottero design and I got it from Belle & Bouquet in Lincolnshire, it was like weddi…

When I was at school, we didn't have fidget spinners..... we made these

I was sat with Tillie earlier chatting about school. I told her there wasn't such a thing as fidget spinners when I was at school..... instead we made these...... BUT WHAT ARE THEY CALLED? Do they even have a name?

I could easily remember how to make it!
Did you put colours and numbers on yours? I think I did the colours and the numbers the wrong way round. It was close to bedtime so I made one in a rush and told her we would make some more tomorrow.... Any suggestions for challenges would be gratefully received!

Also if anyone knows what they are called please let me know!
