My Week – 22/05/16

It is that time again for my weekly post, and an update on what has been happening in the StressedMum household. We had problems with our car this week, luckily I was not driving and my Husband was with me, we had a nice pretty picture of a car in red, which I had never seen before, come up on our dashboard.  Luckily he knew what it was and after a quick google said it was easy to fix, so he ordered the part and it did not take him…

What kind of Mum are you?

What kind of Mum are you?

What kind of Mum are you? I was browsing facebook with my morning coffee and came across one of those silly apps.  I do like to have a go just to see what they say.  The one I came across this morning was, What kind of a Mum are you? This is something that I have been thinking about a lot lately, not questioning myself, but more so other Mums.  I have not been judging any Mums.  It is through posts I have read or statuses on Facebook, where Mums…

As we did not have a roast dinner on Sunday, I cooked one yesterday, it was roast chicken which she loves anyway.  I cook dinner and serve it up, very pleased with myself as my roast potatoes were amazing.  Called her down for her dinner and this is how the conversation went. Me – Are you coming down dinner is ready, and how many potatoes do you want?…

A general ramble

A general ramble

Firstly, let me apologise for being so quiet over the weekend.  I have spent a very rare lovely weekend with my two favourite people, my husband and my daughter.  Just the 3 of us, well and the dog and cat. We made the most of the gorgeous weather on Saturday spending time in the garden, just enjoying ourselves, being with your family is the best feeling in the world. Yesterday the weather was not that nice, so I decided to try and have a trial run on my daughters hair,…

How Times Have Changed

How Times Have Changed

When I was my daughters age (11), we did not have the technology that my daughters generation has. We never had mobile phones, computer games, computers, tablets, laptops, TV programs all day every day, and it got me thinking to how times have changed. We used to play outside with friends, ride our bikes, make up new games, it is amazing what a little bit of imagination does. Our parents did not have to ring us or text us to see where we were as we were never late home,…
