Oh No! Has become one of Boo’s favourite things to say recently, and she will say it at any opportunity, when she accidentally drops something, when she purposefully drops something, when she falls over, when she knows she is going up to her room for nap time, the list continues.

But one day last week, I went up stairs when I heard she had woke from her nap, and she saw me and said in a loud clear voice… oh no! … Charming!! I felt like a loved mummy!! I then realised (hoped) it was because upon waking she had taken off both of her socks and chucked them out of the cot!

Oh No

Cheeky Boo! At least she is not cheeky when she is asleep!!

Little Hearts, Big Love

I am really enjoying Project 365, but I am finding it challenging too.  I have had some good days here I have taken lots of photos, but also a couple of days where I haven’t really taken many, I hope that I can keep up with the photo taking!!

So here is our week… trying to avoid the snot filled pictures as we have all had a terrible cold!

25.  Rye bread… Boo was not entirely sure but she did manage to eat some she did like the mackerel in tomato sauce which was on it!


26. A lovely picture which Boo drew for us, it is now, proudly, hung on the fridge! First of many I think!


27. Obviously the megabloks table is for sitting on!


28. A close up of the thief… I take Boo to a new playgroup and she tries to steal both the walkers and heads out of the door!!


29. Mmm custard beard…. custard tastes better when you are feeding it to yourself!


30. I just love this photo, I took it because as Boo was sitting there her hair just seemed so long, (it seemed like forever before we had any hair!)

Project 365 30

31. A tired Boo who as not happy about having to go to bed!!

Right now I am feeling happy, January is nearly over (a month I always find hard for various reasons) so here are my ten happy things I am currently feeling happy and positive about!

Ten Happy Things

1. Boo will be spending more time with me as I have given up work, and Boo will no longer be going to nursery.

2. My house is tidy, (Boo is still attending nursery two days a week – when she is well enough – and so I am using this time to get sorted and do an early spring clean)

3. My husband’s two boys are coming to visit next week, my husband is really excited, well we both are as we both miss not being able to see them more regularly and we are really excited that Boo will get to meet her older brothers for the first time!

4. I am really enjoying blogging at the minute and I am glad I have moved over the selfhosted it’s lots to get to grips with but lots of fun!

5. I have made two big decisions in my life recently and I feel better now what I have made them as it seems like a weight off my shoulders.

6. My attempt to start the new year off eating healthier and trying to get out and about more has been going well so far and I am not feeling to deprived of chocolate etc

7. I ran my first blog competition this month and it was to try running one, and the products Boo got to test where amazing =)

8. My brother and his wife are due in July and everything is going well with their pregnancy, I can’t believe I am going to be an aunty!

9. I have over 1,000 followers on twitter, which feels like a pretty great milestone to reach!

10. I got to have lunch with my husband the other day when Boo was at nursery, it was lovely to go out and have a meal with my husband, just the two of us, it was the first time we have gone out for a meal, just us two, since before Boo was born.

These are my ten happy things for January 2015… =D

1. My husband is half Danish and half Dutch
2.  I met my husband playing an online game, World of Warcraft (ah that sounds so geeky!! )
3. I love SciFi shows, Stargate SG1 and Atlantis, Farscape, Star Trek etc.
4. When I was pregnant with Boo I suffered from HG

7. I have my tongue pierced twice
8. I have a degree in English from the University of Nottingham (not that you could tell from my spelling/typing now!)
9. I have read the first Harry Potter book in Latin, as I studied Latin at school (I can’t remember any of it now though, which is really sad.)
10.  My favourite colour is pink and every now and than I dye my hair pink for a while (which ruins it with bleach as I have naturally very dark brown hair, but it’s worth it!)
11. I always wear odd socks

1} How easy do you find the time to blog?
I usually blog during nap time and early evening after Boo has gone to bed, Boo still has two naps a day, but they vary in length so some days I don’t find much time at all!

2} What is your favourite form of social media?
I can’t pick between twitter and instagram!

3} Do you have a favourite chocolate?
I love white chocolate and milk chocoalte, (can’t stand dark chocolate)

4} If you could go anywhere in the world for a day, where would you go?
I would go to

5} Which do you prefer coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
Hot Chocolate definitely, with cream! Yummy! I only drink decaf coffee, (usually with caramel syrup in it)  and occasionally I drink tea, I even sometimes, on very very rare occasions get to drink tea warm!

6}When was the last time you went on holiday and where?
I went to Denmark when I was pregnant with Boo, so see my husbands two boys, we went camping and it was lovely.  The weather was amazing, we were so lucky.

7} Where is your favourite place to blog from?
Sat on my sofa with the TV on in the background.

8} What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was ‘Spooky, spooky spooky’ to Boo.  The last adult book I read was Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb, but that was months ago!

9} Are you better at cooking or baking?
Neither I can’t cook really or bake, I do try, but my husband loves to cook so that’s lucky for me!

10} If you could choose a super power what would it be and why?
(Oh tricky question!) Maybe the power to change the weather so that I could make sure it was always sunny and warm when we had to go outside for a walk or wanted to go to the park.
11} How long have you been blogging for?
I wrote the first post on my blog ‘Baby Chaos’ in June 2014, and then nothing until August 2015, but since August I have been blogging regularly.
