Happy Birthday little man…..

Happy Birthday Little man…..

What a weekend. I’m not going to lie, it’s been non stop and i’m pooped but it was worth every second.
This time two years ago the big man would have been wheeling me down to the special care unit to see our beautiful bundle of Joy. Thursday 10th March 2011 was the happiest day of my life and I dont think anything else will ever come close to me being a Mummy to the most perfect little boy in the world.

Its amazing how fast time goes. Its still surreal that my little angel is now TWO. I only hope that he stays a child for as long as possible and doesn’t want to grow up too quickly. He has grown and developed so much and me and daddy are extremely proud of him.

Jacob’s party went without a hitch, all the little people were having a wonderful time playing at the play group. We had arranged that we would have about and hours play before returning to ours for some party food and cake. I think all in all we stayed for more than two hours as the kiddies were having to much fun. They all looked like they would have a great nights sleep for their mummy and daddy’s when they got home so I would like to think that was a job well done on our part.

The fun didn’t end there for the little man… This morning when he woke up he had lots and lots of presents waiting for him downstairs. (we stayed strong and resisted the urge to let him open them yesterday.) And he got spoilt rotten, It was as if santa had come down the chimney and gave him all his christmas presents early, and he hasnt stopped playing with them all day. His favourites seem to be his Thomas the tank engine set and his Ninky-nonk that his aunties bought him. Most importantly I loved having all the people that mean the most to us joining in to celebrate his special day.

I also got spoilt on this lovely day as it is mother’s day too. My little man showered me with lots of cuddles and he has been as good as gold all day.. here’s hoping his terrible two’s came and went after chritsmas. I recieved a lovely mummy necklace and a lovely card. The big man has also cooked me a lovely meal for the occasion too.

I love my little family. They mean more to me than anything.
I hope all you yummy mummy’s also had a lovely day too.

Mother’s Day ideas…


Mother’s Day is only around the corner, and with a wide choice of things to buy, people including myself can get stuck for ideas for their wonderful mamma’s on their special day.

Not only are there thousands of options on the market, price can also play a huge part. Who doesn’t want the best for their mamma on Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day for me this year is already an expensive one before I have even thought about cards and gifts for my mother or mother-in law… No, this is not because I want massive presents for myself, but if the hubby does get me something nice and pretty **cough cough.. An engagement ring** I wouldn’t mind very much 🙂


My Mother’s Day will be spent with my little angel as its his birthday on this day too 🙂 I’m sure daddy will be too busy looking after his two favourite people to feel left out.

As all our funds that we would normally use to treat our parents will be used for the lil mans birthday this year I have decided to make some homemade gifts this year. I know they won’t be as amazing as stuff you can buy in the shops but there will have deffinately been a lot of thought and time gone into them.

I’m thinking of making some homemade candles ( I like to use small cow and gate baby jars as these a re a lovely size and look very pretty with a ribbon attached.
A friend of mine has an awesome recipe for Asian chilli jam ( her blog is awesome -www.coffee-and-cakes.co.uk make sure to take a look.) which I am going to make and put in a little wicker basket filled with assorted crackers and cheese and maybe a lovely bottle of wine to go with it.

My little man will be making some personalised cards for his grandma’s too and I feel they will love these much better as it will show his personality and the beginning of his artistic flare 🙂

Once I have completed my presents I will add some photos for you to see, and of course I shall let you know if I have survived the pirate birthday party… This consists of a bunch of hyper children between 6 months and 11 years old 😯

Wish me luck and happy Mother’s Day
