Will the ear infection ever go away?

Today the blog comes to you from a Scotrail train.  I am venturing north to Inverness.  I have two good reasons for this.  The Tidy Tyrant is working near there and gets a Sunday off and Tumultuous Toshi has completed a cycling challenge there.  A perfect opporchancity to have some kid free time with the… Continue reading Will the ear infection ever go away?

Family Days Out

Look! Poppy’s big enough for a big girl seat on the cargo bike…

Today’s blog comes to you from from the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow (well ok so not all of it does as I only got the first paragraph written on Friday while Daisy was in day surgery).  Daisy is having a little op to have her eye check up and an ENT procedure.  The… Continue reading Look!

Tubie, or not Tubie: that is the question!

When I left you last I was about to run a half marathon.  Well that was six weeks ago.  Doesn’t time fly when you are running around like a blue arsed fly all the time?  I was chuffed to bits with my time.  I was hoping to complete it in less than 1 hour 55… Continue reading Tubie, or not Tubie: that is the question!

Birthday Celebrations

Four, Flurries, Feeding and Family

We have ourselves a four year old.  A very teeny tiny four year old who still wears 18-24 month clothes.  Thank goodness she wasn’t born three days earlier or she’d be going to school this August and I’m not sure we’d have found her a uniform to fit!  We were snowed in on her actual… Continue reading Four, Flurries, Feeding and Family

Fuelling the Fitness Fanatic in February

The weeks have been rolling by and I realised it’s about a month since my last blog post.  It’s not that there isn’t anything to write about.  Far from it.  It’s finding the time.  Especially as I have been ramping up the fitness regime.  I’ve been managing out to circuit training twice a week, after… Continue reading Fuelling the Fitness Fanatic in February
