Hello March 2017

It’s March, we’ve had pancakes, indulged, eaten creme eggs by the bucket, and now it’s time for bright flowers, gardening and spring cleaning (aka nesting). 

February was productive and I must say blog wise I was pleased: I ranked 153 in Tots 100! I also published quite a few posts taking part in the Happy Days Linky every week and publishing 4+ posts each week. I also was very pleased to tick a few posts off my long term bucket list including a few posts on How to Start a Blog: What is a linky? Why should do I join linkies? and Which linky should I join? Which linkies do I love? – if I regularly link up to your linky… You’ve got a mention in that post too 😀

I also wrote a few reviews Brush Baby electric toothbrush for kids which makes tooth brushing easier and more fun. 

And of course a few pregnancy related posts: 24 week update – insomnia and viability, maternity clothes bargains and happy days kicks mostly! 

We did struggle in January/February with these horrible winter colds that have been going around. Of course being pregnant with a cold didn’t help as all the lemsips and decongestants were a big no no. I also had a few down moments this month which I guess are both toddler inflicted SAHM exhaustion coupled with pregnancy. My hormones seem to be much more up and down this time round – I didn’t have a break-down or cry at all with Toddler H… This time I have had a few cry moments every couple of months, with this month taking the biscuit as I had a few this month; of course they’re usually over nothing. Sorry hubby! Just another way this second pregnancy is so different. 


Top blog posts


      A few favourites from other blogs

      Growing my tribe by Fi at Beauty Baby and Me- I really related to this post. So many points I thought about last year, from fears and age gaps, and the possibility of miscarriage. 

      My children are just as annoying as yours by Five Little Doves… a brilliant post and so true!

      Psssst… Everyone is faking it by Pink Pear Bear – Photoshopping and sharing nice family photos, the good moments, but should we share all the bad? 

      Weaning twins – 6 must have items by Travelling Baby –  a really useful post among others on life with twins, and a toddler – oh I can’t imagine how to cope! Can you imagine the mess with weaning twins??! This post helps, share with all your friends with twins!


      A few thoughts for March:

      1. We’re hopefully having a night away (with toddler H), but still a change of scene and a swimming pool is a lovely thought 
      2. A holiday – we’re hoping to cram in a last minute holiday somewhere hot before I can no longer fly… So probably in March 
      3. Nesting – I think it’s kicked in! We’ve just stated putting up a load of IKEA furniture to sort out our storage and moving boxes problem. So there will be a few more home related poss this month 
      4. Finish my post in our holiday to Menorca last year. It’s so family friendly and only 2 hours flight from Bristol.
      5. Mothers Day – if I can I’d like to launch my button frames for sale in time for Mother’s Day orders… I’m cutting t fine, but still haven’t decided on a name so am a bit stuck. Suggestions on a postcard please!!!
      6. We also bought a second hand BuggyBoard on Monday so look forward to trying it out and saving my back, and toddler tantrums too I hope! Update: BuggyBoard Mini review is now live! 

      Have a lovely March everyone, have you anything nice planned?

      I can’t believe it is march already! Second pregnancies are hard. Keep going. Sounds like you have a couple of things in the pipeline that should help recharge the batteries.
