Happy Monday everyone😀 Today didn't start off great with my younger son vomiting from 3am and me having to change my plans and spend the day with him. You mums out there know how unpredictable our lives can be, you never really know what will happen next. Anyway, he seems to be feeling a lot better so hopefully back to normal tomorrow. At this busy time of year it's so easy to get caught up with pleasing everyone. But in reality sometimes you may need to say no and may even miss out on seeing some people. Don't feel guilty, it's also important to practise self care as well and make sure you make time for yourself. As a mum I know it can be difficult but even the smallest amount of time will allow you to breathe. Let's make this week leading to Christmas a happy joyous time without sacrificing our own well being. ❤❤
Today I have afternoon tea with Father Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yesssssssssssssssss! I'm glad I'm going to be able to get in front of him and explain my situation because it doesn't come across as well in writing. I'm going to put my cute face on and get him back onside. Team monk!! Nerf gun is neigh!! Me mam better get a helmet, shin pads and padded vest on her list pronto!
With the current incarnation of My Little Pony looking like they have been drawn by someone on an acid trip (bratzification 😏), as an eighties girl I was VERY excited to find these socks celebrating the original (and the best) My Little Pony in Primark! . #mylittlepony #mlp #theoriginalmylittlepony #primark #primarni #rockthatsock #mynewsocks #Primania . #threezypeezy #instafamily #instamum #mumlife #familylife #parenting #dailyparenting #womenwithwit #myfamilyadventures #ohheymama #mumsnet #ig_motherhood #workingmum #workingmother #funnymummy #lifewithkids #funnymummy #parenting #lifestyle #sharenting
This lil fella is just too cute, completely and utterly melts my heart! My little miracle 💙
Good morning my loveliest, I can’t believe that next week this time it will be Christmas. A very busy week lies ahead and I thought I sweeten the Monday blues a bit with this spread I laid for a tea last week. Do you like it? 🇮🇹🇮🇹 Buongiorno carissime. Non posso credere che fra una settimane esatta sarà Natale! Ci aspetta una settimana super impegnativa ed ho pensato di addolcire un po’ il lunedì con questa foto del tea che ho preparato per alcune amiche la scora settimana, vi piace? : : : : : : #thewomoms #londonfood #londoneats #tastelondon #pblogger #infatuationlondon #the_sugar_jar #eeeeeats #londonfoodie #londonfoodblogger #londonfoodblog #londonfoodscene #mumsofinstagram #mumsnet #snaphappybritmums #theheartcaptured #eeeats #lickyourphone #feedfeed #foodshare #londonmum #pbloggers

I know you shouldn’t wish your time away, and I’m not for one second but I can’t wait until me and Coco can share stories of how late we’ve left our Christmas shopping over a few beers and bag of pork scratchings. #lastminuteshopping #baddad #turbomandoll #daddyson

Sleeping baby means mummy and Daddy have cracked open the Sloe gin and Prosecco 🍸👫
8 days to go until the man in red makes his appearance :) I feel lucky this year to have 2 little girls who believe with every ounce of their being in the xmas magic and santa and 1 oldest who thankfully now knows the truth. I say thankful as she was always one clever clogs when it came to questioning me about xmas and santa. 🌲"Why are some of our presents wrapped with xmas paper from our cupboard mum if santa brought them" - (he totally forgot to wrap a few dont u know and had to have a borrow of ours and do lsst min wrapping while here🙈🙈) 🌲"why do the toys say made in china and not the north pole" (on busy years he uses not only his northpole elfs but elfs from other countries too to help with demand!) 🌲"why does everyone else buy us a present but you don't mum《we r 1 of the families where santa brings it all》(we dont have any money left in December because we have to send money towards the elfs wages. The elfs have families to feed too dont ya know)(later revised to holding 1 gift back...usually PJs off mum and jay) 🌲"why does our stocking have the same sweets/crisps/treats as we have in our kitchen" (santa must shop in the same places!) @meganmarshall___ You certainky kept me on my toes over the years...I am so glad your a part of teamelf now and helping keep the magic alive not just for the little ones but for us all. So be good...or santa wont be coming for you next week and you'll have a lump of goal :) . **DO YOUR LITTLE ONES EVER STUMP YOU WITH XMAS QUESTIONS AND WHAT HAVE YOU SAID AS A COMEBACK....ID LOVE TO HEAR...COMMENT BELOW OR SHOOT ME A PM AND GIVE ME A GIGGLE** #Christmas #xmas #santa #santaisreal #christmasmagic #parenting #mumsnet #mumslife #fatherchristmas #hohoho #elfs #presents #gifts #xmascheer #christmasiscoming #excited #xmastime #festive #family
C O D Y M E T S A N T A 🎅🏼🎄 . We have just come home from the BEST day ever. We went to @stockeldpark in Wetherby and it was truly a MAGICAL experience! . Everything was outstanding...from arriving and parking, to their Santa ticket system (that meant we were not queuing in the cold), the stunning Christmas shop, the enchanted forest....the food in the restaurant, baby changing to the INCREDIBLE Santa! . Today is one of the busiest days to go see Santa, and Stockeld Park had it sussed! 👌🏼 Plenty of happy, helpful staff around the park...and in the restaurant. Food delicious, hot, and although there was a huge queue....once you got to order everything was very quick and efficient and nothing was too much trouble! . The Santa's grotto, Elves, Santa himself were all SUPERB! . Thank you for a fabulous day and making Cody's 1st visit to Santa a very special, magical day! . If you haven't been guys GO! It's open till the 24th to see Santa...and there is so much to do! 100% worth the money! . TOP TIPS: Wear wellies, its quiet muddy when you park and walking around can be too! . All activities fab for older kids - Cody is only 6 months so only took him to enchanted forest! Go to the forest later in the day to take advantage of the beautiful lights and props lit up! . It's not a cheap day guys especially if you have a lot of you...but for what we needed for Cody it was worth every penny! . Try the 'Hot Choc - The Works'...100% not Syn Free...but worth it haha! . See you next year Santa!🎄🎅🏼 5/5🌟 . #stockeldpark #santa #firstvisitwithsanta #magical #enchantedforest #babiesofinstagram #mumrecommends #mumsnet #review #tripadvisor #familyday #mumdadbaby #love #bestday @georgeatasda @asda @ologyuk @seraphinematernity @icandyworld_1 @stockeldpark #elf #festive #christmas

#bogeyontheshelf day 15 Do not share your dinner with a sloth. This sloth is the opposite of slow when it comes to food & drink! It was quite frightening how he managed to pack away so much food within a short amount of time!
Day 15 of #sillydaddyboozyadvent Becky’s tipple was a Yellow Tail Shiraz from south eastern Australia. As you can see the bottle didn’t look its best anymore. Also on the bottle it says vintage 2015 so that must have hanging around on the shelves for quite some time. For me it was back to the premixed can. This time it was another Tesco London Gin mixed with Tesco Diet Tonic.

Loving these radishes as a dipping tool!! Apart from adding colour & vibrancy, the fiery flavour works well with a dip like this homemade hummus. A healthy balance for the indulgences over there festive period! Kids will love these too! #radish #radishes #eatinseason #healthydip #hummus #hummous #healthyeats #healthysnacks #eatmoreplants #plantbased #plantpowered #eatmoreveg #food52 #eathealthy #seasonalproduce #heresmyfood #mumlife #mumsnet #mumblogger #maysimpkin #mumsofig #healthymum #healthykids #healthymeals #londonmums #instamums #maysimpkin

Did you see our post last week. Asking for volunteers? Another call. Check out our website for details www.themagpieproject.org . #Repost @sabinezetteler ( @get_repost) ・・・ There’s a serious reason the (very) few of us who volunteer have to volunteer SO bloody much. It’s sad and horrifying and wow... if you make one New Years resolution this year for next, please can you help? Because the Conservatives are not. The situation is dire, but YOU can help. Yes you! ✨ A handful of hours a month to do something genuinely useful, make new friends and connect with your community. It’s only exhausting when a tiny group have to manage the ever-increasing load (but there’s no reason why we should have to). It’s not OK to forever pat your exhausted friends on the back and sit back and watch that 96th boxset. There’s shit to do our there and we need you. Please help. Thanks x
