Win a Copy of the Best-Selling Book Mum’s List by St John Greene

I am a list maker, always have been and probably always will be. It drives the other half nuts as he’s always finding random bits of paper lying around the house with various lists on them. My list writing takes on a whole new level during the run-up to Christmas too. I have lists for presents, lists for food, lists for decorations, it’s never-ending.

Natural Cycles – The Fertility Tracking App

According to the NHS one in seven couples have difficulty conceiving which is approximately 3.5 million people in the UK alone. Personally I was quite shocked by that statistic.

It was nearly 8 years ago now and I was working for Cancer Research UK in one of their Tunbridge Wells stores. I was busy sorting through the donations when I suddenly thought ‘Oh my god I’m pregnant’. I have no idea what lead me to think that as I wasn’t ‘late’, I didn’t feel sick, infact I’d not had a single sign or symptom of pregnancy. For some reason I just knew I was.

20 Reasons Why my Daughter will be Late for School

Our daughter, Lowenna, is one of the most contrary people I have ever come across. If I ask her to go upstairs and put some trousers on she will come back down in a skirt.If I ask her to get me her hairbrush she will come back with her toothbrush.

Unlike her older brother who’s sole aim is to please, she relishes in the fact that she is being awkward and the more awkward she can be the better. I’d like to say it’s a phase and she’ll grow out of it but she has been this way since she was a baby.
