October is well and truly here, it really has turned cold this last week hasn’t it? I’ve been frozen on the school run some mornings and then others I have regretted wearing a coat. I’m still trying to resist putting the heating on but it is really are needed in an evening now… I was so cold getting in to bed last night! We had a lovely week, it was James’ birthday so we had a great time celebrating. Unfortunately we still have no car so there haven’t really been any exciting adventures. Read more
Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is Gross Motor Skills for Dyspraxia Awareness Week but seeing as I haven’t heard of this a condition before I haven’t really got that much to say about it. So I’ll share the link to the Dyspraxia Foundation website so you can read all about it. I’ve shared some of their posts over on Twitter too because I don’t want to read and ignore. I like to bring awareness to different conditions and charities wherever I can.
Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is Forest Creatures but seeing as it is #NationalBadgerDay I’m just going to be focusing on my love for the badger. For the past 15 years the badger has been a huge part of my life because that is what I call my other half. He is my grumpy badger… I think that name came about after his love for the ‘badger, badger’ video that was going about at the time. He thought it was brilliant… I started calling him Badger which funnily enough has become more appropriate as he gets older as he has grey patches in his beard.
Day 5’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is education. I could talk about how stressed my oldest is now he is doing his third year of uni, or how the younger two are getting on or how I appreciate their amazing teachers but today I thought I’d talk about me and my education or lack of it… Read more
Today’s prompt for Blogtober is Ditty as it is #Nationalpoetryday. I’ve been sat here for a good half an hour and nothing is coming to me at all so I thought I would share the poem that my Boo wrote for my birthday this year. It was a totally unexpected surprise when she handed me this big piece of card with a poem on and lots of lovely doodles. Read more
Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is couples and seeing as today is #nationalboyfriendday I thought I’d write about my man… James. We have been together for almost 15 years and have two amazing kids. We’ve had some wonderful times together and some not so wonderful but at the end of the day I know that he is there, always willing to give me a huge hug and to try and make me feel wonderful.

Good morning everyone. Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is Boobs specifically relating to #BreastCancerAwareness so if you came along expecting to see my boobs you are going to be sorely disappointed but I’m going to be sharing lots of useful information about Breast Cancer Awareness and what you can do to help.

This Mummy Loves… is eight years old as of yesterday and I have literally just come across #Blogtober18 and loved the idea so much that I thought I’d give it a go. Firstly if like me you haven’t heard of #Blogtober before then it is basically writing a blog post everyday throughout October with prompts by Big Family Organised Chaos. Today is day 1 and the first prompt is ‘All About Me’ I’m actually really excited to join in with this as I’ve been feeling rather empty with regards to writing recently so this may just give me what I need to get my love back.
