well im back again after a break from the net,
ive had a really tough couple of months, our beloved family dog died at the grand age of 16 and my wonderful grams condition got alot worse, and we discovered her cancer had spread to her brain and within 5 weeks we had lost her, its the funeral on tuesday, i miss her so very much and its painfull and strange.
other than that im generally quite happy, i chose to go on to anti depressants as after the obstacles of this year my moods were suffering and i needed some help, and they have helped me stay far more positive and be a better mum.
i do find myself feeling terribly guilty for being happy at any point but my grandma adored jack and lola and i know 100% she would want me to carry on have fun and smile for them.
we are still living between my mums and our house in leicester, but i dont care anymore, the kids are happy, and until something right comes up we will cope.
Enough doom and gloom.
Lola is TWO on sunday!!!! i cannot believe it!
she is so grown up now, but such a petite little thing, and has ALOT to say for herself, ready steady go is her new comment this week, and as soon as she wakes in the morning she sayes morning meme (mummy) and snuggles in bed with me, she is a real mummys girl!
Jack is toilet trained, literally overnight we left nappies behind and have never had an accident, i am so very proud of him, he still has a pull up for night time but its rarely wet and hes dry for naps. hes talking alot more and is becoming very confident, its fantastic after struggling for so long with his severe shyness.
i am very proud of them both!
How is everyone doing?
Any new bumps?
Any new babies here yet??
much love x x x x x x x

Hi Laura.Welcome back.
Sorry for losing your Grandma,I know you were very close.
Sorry for your dog dying too.
Hope you're feeling better soon.
Sounds like Jack and Lola are doing well.Two years old already ,where did the time go?
Pontypines all doing well.Harry's settled into big school well.Had me worried yesterday,told me he and his friends went to philosophy club.I asked him what they did in philosophy club.They have biscuits,he said,we call it biscuit club now.That's a philosophy I can relate to.
Merlin's 18 months in a week's time,still not walking.He can tell you stand up,sit down,and do both those things,he can do a dance but try and get him to walk and he just squeals whoa!!! and fakes falling down.I think he's just enjoying the game,but he'll beat the family record at this rate.
Supposed to be doing Tesco's shopping

Jo, i like the sound of biscuit club!
Merlins 18mnths!! i cant believe it! already! Lola didnt walk fast, cant remember when exactly, terrible i know! Sounds like his game is far more fun than walking anyway
I cant believe madam is 2 sunday, its flown so fast. My friend brought her a talking peppa pig that she adores and has been dragged around by the hand all day talking to it and shouting My peppa at anyone who looked at it, shes gonna be fun on the day huh!

i'm really sorry to hear about your gran i know exactly how u feel i lost my nan 2yrs ago in dec and its still hard when the date comes around. it does get easier i promise but i find it still feels strange, prob cause i was so close to her, also please dont feel guilty about being happy and smiley ur gran would want u to be hunny trust me and anyways with two gorgeous children like jack and lola no one could stay sad for long. wow lola is now 2 like the girls have said where has the time gone??did she have a good day?? i cant believe charlie will be 3 in jan now thats scary lol.
well whats been happening this end well we are moving again in the new year bit of a nightmare but cant be helped because of hubby being in the navy and due to the government cuts that were introduced a few weeks ago there is no longer any work for him up here so we are now being moved back down south and will be moving to plymouth, quite excited because it means we will be living right on the beach and to be honest i just want to get settled so i can get charlie into pre-school etc which he soooo needs right now....oh and we are now ttc for baby number 2....i'm so excited
i've nearly finished my xmas shopping just need to wrap it but will leave that till dec as it feels more chrimassy then lol

OMG JADE I AM SOOO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!!!
sorry to hear your moving again zoe, its chaotic isnt it, were still trying to find somewhere, having a break for now and looking in the new year.
Rach, these boys eh, worth all the hassle though! my little or not so little brother was delivered early, 3weeks early and weighed.....11lb 2oz. no reason for it, mum had two gtts and nothing showed up, he was the third to! Do hope he arrives healthy and you have no problems, being huge isnt much fun! take care hun x x x x
exciting sarah, not long now, i never had any braxton hicks so cant give you any advice, just had painful hips, my mum jokes and says i cant have as my babys were so small, just 6 and 7lbs.
Lola had a wonderful day, we went to the zoo for the day on saturday then spent sunday opening presents and eating cake at mums, she loved every minute, we got her her first doll and its being dragged everywhere although shes played with it so much the batteries ran out in 2 days!!! We also got her a little tea set that she spends ages with but always back to her baby, before grams passed away she got her a little mamas and papas set, pram, high chair and bouncy chair for her dolly and bebe as shes called it spends all day being dragged between the three! its really lov ely watching her play as shed grown very bored of all her toys.
im really organised with christmas thanks to all the sales that have been on,
jack has the peppa pig rocket (free when i spent £40 at toysrus) the elc mega rc truck, Half price in the sale
Lola just has some odds and ends i put up after over spending on her birthday, peppa phonic board, drink and wet doll that was half price in elc.
i got my brothers pressie on a brilliant deal, hes mad on chuggington, the engines were buy 2 get one free, and the storage case was 20% off then after spending a certain amount i got a remote control brewster free in toysrus!!
there stockings ive picking up little bits all over, pound land had toystory and disney princess china breakfast bowls, mugs and metal cutlery for £1 obviously. elc had all pocket money toys on 3 for 2.got them christmas slipper socks in aldi for £1.50 for 2 pairs. got jacks tons of buzz bits, yoyo, phone, zeebee, pez dispenser, straw etc. Just got to finish my sister and my kids.
