A few things I love

I thought I would start off sharing with you some things (apart from my family) that I love


I always remember my auntie entering comps and I must of caught the comping bug from her, she still enters them now  but only postal ones as she doesn't do computers.

 I love entering competitions when I have a bit of time generally in the evenings when the kids have finally decided to go to sleep.  Ive always liked to win stuff I mean who doesn't, when I was about ten I entered a competition from a magazine I think and I won a keyboard which I loved and learnt to play when the saints come marching in.

I never won anything else that i can recall until I discovered online competitions in around 2004 and started entering as many as I could I've never won anything big just little bits and pieces and some small value shopping vouchers but really I think its just the thrill of winning that I like.

fake tan

I don't know what it is but it makes me feel & I think look better and I just love having a tan. I caught the tanning bug as I call it when I was in my early twenties when I started using sunbeds I would go as far as to say I was addicted to tanning and would use them at least twice a week.
About six years ago I got a bit worried about the effect it was having on my skin and switched to fake tan instead.  so now my thing is trying out new fake tans in my quest to find the perfect one.

hopefully I will be able to do reviews for you soon.


Yes good old household bleach ha ha I love it and its not just a pregnancy thing I always have. I love the smell of it and I feel like everything is clean and fresh after Ive used it.  I have ruined a lot of my clothes with this obsession.

This is just a few random things that I love, please feel free to comment with any of yours.

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
