Moving on is coming

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

If your a regular reader of my blog you will know the last five months have been hell for me, family and friends have been constantly saying to me that I need to move on but I could never see it. Moving on seemed a million miles away but in the last few weeks I think I am actually beginning to see this ‘Moving On Malarky”  that the people closest to me have been talking about.

In the last few weeks my confidence has started to come back, I have met some lovely people that I would never have met 5 months ago if my situation was different. I have got out and about with friends and the children but the best and most important thing the last few weeks has been the relationships I have built with the mums in Little Birds class. Its been lovely meeting up with them drop of a hat at the park and doing things together at night. I have stayed out late, I have come home happy and its started to feel like ‘moving on’  is getting closer.

My Blue Nose Friends – Wise the Owl’s School House

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Toys

Big Bird is a massive fan of the My Blue Nose Friends range, she has everything from the soft cuddly bears to the little hard metal keyrings. We were recently in London for the day and it made her year to meet a life size Tatty Teddy. So when we got the chance to review Wise the Owl’s School House we obviously jumped at the chance.

The Ugglys

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Toys

At the beginning of this month I attended Christmas in July and came across a toy that I knew Big Bird would love. Big Bird is mad about dogs and has been asking me constantly for the last two years if we can have one. When her Father left us 5 months ago the desperate needs for a dog got more intense. I have contemplated getting one but I am not sure that we have the time and patience for a dog in our lives right now.

As soon as I saw the Ugglys from Character I knew this was the toy to buy me some more time from getting a real dog. Ugglys are an electronic pup-pet they are the ugliest grossest pet that come alive in your hands. When you put your hand inside then get ready to gross out your friends. When you open the Ugglys mouth you will hear him burp, when you scrunch his mouth shut you will hear him trump. Ugglys are super light and very soft when you squeeze your Ugglys head you can make some wacky faces

Last night me and the children attended our local Beerfest with my neighbours and parents. It was a lovely evening full of fun, laughter, rides, friends and lots of beer. It was a beautiful night and the sun was out until late. The children loved the rides and made the most of having Nanny and Grandad there who looked after them whilst I went off and chatted to old friends.

I love it when Beerfest comes to town, its full of friends that I have not seen from one year to the next and its lovely to catch up with them all. I met quite a few friends last night who didn’t know my current situation and were shocked to find out I am now a single lady. A lovely group of lads I used to hang around with when I was 16 years old got talking to me and asked me to go back down the Beerfest with them tonight. I told them I would have to get a babysitter and when I went back to my parents to tell them my Mum said straight away “I will babysit.” Boom …… SORTED!!!!

Nature, nature everywhere …..

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

There is nothing me and the children love more than going out for a walk or as we like to call it a Nature Trail. The children love it and normally go armed with a carrier bag to collect leaves and flowers and a plastic box to capture creepy crawlies. The only downside to the creepy crawlies is the children never want to let them go, they normally want to keep it them as a pet.

Little Bird has completed his first year at school !!!!

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

Where did that time go?? I can’t believe Little Bird has completed his first year at school. It only seems like yesterday I was dropping him off for his first day at school. He has grown up and learnt so much over the last 10 months I am so proud of him. Today I dropped him off for his last day in Reception Class. He loves his teacher and is so sad to be leaving her. Little Bird wanted to get her some flowers and how could I refuse.
