• Chunk’s Very First Photography

    30th April 2014

    I was taking photos of Chunk putting a puzzle together a couple of weeks ago, and he suddenly became quite interested in my flashing camera! I decided to let him have a go on my camera for the first time and thought I would share his very first photo snapping session with you guys. There were some rather…

  • I’ve Updated This Blog’s Name!

    19th March 2014

    Hey Hey! I cannot believe this blog has been going for nearly a year! When I look back at the first few posts it’s shocking to see what me and my little fella have been through over the last year (and how badly I used to write ha ha). But it’s also lovely to see…

    6th May 2013

    Tomorrow I return to work after having a year of no money, but that precious thing we call ‘time’ with my boy. Now I will have less time with my boy and even LESS money- don’t you just love how our government work?! If I rented then I could stay off work and claim housing…

  • Rainy Day Hell…

    14th April 2013

    I don’t know if it’s the same for everyone else, but cold, rainy days are my idea of a nightmare these days! My son seems to get cabin fever very quickly, and if he doesn’t get fresh air he becomes a smaller, more annoying version of Taz the Tasmanian Devil; Remember the scenes when Taz…
