The Versatile Blogger Award


It's Sunday night, the boys are settled for bed and Pete has finally left the laptop unattended, so I have sought out the opportunity to actually bash out a blog post for a change! I was tagged twice this week by the lovely Becky from Bringing Up The Berneys and the equally lovely Polly from Blogger By The Sea to participate in The Versatile Blogger award. 

My favourite thing about blogging is the support that comes with it, so when you get a notification to say you've been nominated to take part in something it's really exciting and uplifting. The only rules are to tell people seven facts about yourself, which is definitely going to be hard for me because I want it to be different from my Girl Behind The Blog post which you can read here so in addition to the twenty facts I've written on there, I need seven more new ones. I don't even think I can add to that but I'll give it a go! 

  1. I have 6 tattoos, 8 if you include the cover up I've just had done and my eyebrows.
  2. I got my lip pierced when I was 16 because Tom Delonge and Dougie Poynter had their lips pierced.
  3. If I could live off one food for the rest of my life it would be crisps.
  4. I'm really messy. I just hate tidying up.
  5. I have three younger brothers, the youngest are twins.
  6.  Cardiff is my favourite city in the UK and I love the Welsh accent.
  7. My first job was in TJ Hughes when I was 17 where I earned about £4.20 an hour and thought I was rolling in it.
Okay do that was easier than I thought it would be but now I need to tag 15 bloggers and I don't even think I know that many who haven't already been tagged but I'm gonna give it a go!

Louise @ weeohana
Danielle @ undertowonder
Adam @ dadblogger_uk
Adam @ askyerfather

That'll do. I cant't think of anymore and I'm pretty lazy so there you go!

  1. I really enjoyed this place and you can definitely find me here for more events. I didn't eat anything when on my recent visit to venue NYC, but those around me had truffle fries, pizza, and wings all seemed to enjoy.

The Mental Load

A few months ago someone shared a post on Facebook entitled "The Mental Load" and when I read it I couldn't believe how relatable it was, in fact, I shared it and when Pete saw it he laughed. I don't know why he laughed because it is scarily accurate. You see I think men think they do more than they actually do.
The mental load descibes how women are expected to run the household, work a job and look after the children, while the men don't do these things unless asked. But who is asking women to do these things? Why don't the men in our lives know what needs to be done around the house unless they have been asked by their significant other? 
Another week has come around when I've come home from work to dirty dishes sprawled across every work surface, the dishwasher is still full of clean dishes to be put away and last night's pots and pans have been left on the draining board. I am annoyed. All weekend whilst Pete is away, I manage to keep on top of …

Health | My PCOS Story

I recently attended an evening with Giovanna Fletcher where she spoke about her new book, Happy Mum, Happy Baby. It was here I learned of her struggle with PCOS and I couldn't relate more to what she was saying. It was such a relief to hear of another person who had gone through the same thing I had. So what is PCOS? PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome and despite the name, you do not actually have cysts on your ovaries. PCOS is actually a hormone imbalance whereby the body produces too much insulin and testosterone. That's my understanding of it anyway! After hearing of Giovanna's experience I wanted to share my PCOS Story:
I've always known I wanted to become a mum and if I could, I would have liked to have been younger than 24 when I did. However, age doesn't really matter because it is when you're in the right position to start a family that's important. I digress. Pete and I had been together for 2 years when we made the decision to become paren…

Mamas and Papas Magic Stargaze Playmat Review

When you're pregnant with your first child, people will always be willing to give/ buy you stuff. A lot of people always want brand new for their first born, but I wasn't too fussy. George had a brand new pram, clothes and furniture for his bedroom and I was happy with that. We were even offered a playmat which was in immaculate condition and we loved it. 
Two and a half years on, I'm not entirely sure what happened to that playmat (in fact, we had two which both seem to have got lost in our spare room). It was when I was scrolling through Facebook that I saw an advert for a grey playmat which I just fell in love with, but couldn't bring myself to part with the money for it, as it was literally just a mat on its own. Beautiful, but not really worth the money! It was then that I decided I wanted to buy a grey playmat because well, I really like grey and I had my heart set on this gorgeous grey one that I couldn't justify.
 After a bit of Googling, I came across the…
