My lovely fellers (all 3 of em)

My lovely fellers (all 3 of em) Originally uploaded by chiggster And they are ALL smiling! I love this photo. Shame about all the tat in the background, but I'm sure I could photoshop that if I get the time. I think this one is a printable wallinghangable photo! I love those three lads! Even the hairy one... ;op

Never enough time!

Any of you who have kids will understand this... there's never enough time in the day to do everything you need to do, let alone what you want to do! And that's how it's been here for the last few weeks. I haven't even managed to lose any weight! Typical day: Daddy gets up with Jack. Mummy feeds Tom. All downstairs for breakfast. Put cloth nappies on to wash. Empty & re-fill dish washer. Dress kids. Take kids out for the morning. Back for lunch. Do washing. Entertain kids until nap time. Jack goes for a nap. TRY to do something fun for me (usually fail). Tidy up toys. Make dinner & get Jack up. Feed everyone. More washing, stack dishwasher again. Entertain kids until bedtime. Get Jack ready for bed (inc bedtime story). Tidy up toys. Get Tom ready for bed. Pass out! ((Insert baths for kids 2-3 times a week.)) Since I was on here last we have been visited by my sister-in-law Rachel, her hubby and 3 kids, and the dog. It was lovely seeing everyone although it

Our 9 / 3 Anniversary!

Jack & the donkey Originally uploaded by chiggster Wow... 9 years together. And 3 years married. This time next year we'll have been together a whole decade! We spent the first part of the morning with our whole little family sat on our bed watching cartoons. Mark brought us breakfast in bed (himself, me and Jack. Tom has me, hee hee) and we swapped prezzies. Mark bought be a lovely silver charm bracelet with a charm for our wedding day and one each for the birth of our boys. Very sweet! When you have a toddler & a nursing baby there really isn't much point attempting to hire a babysitter and book a romantic candle lit dinner for two somewhere expensive... it aint gonna happen! So we thought about it for a while and opted for a fun family day out instead. We took the kiddies to Blackpool Zoo ( It was a great day out too. Jack loved the dinosaur safari best I think, and the red river pigs, donkeys and spider monkeys. Tom slept for most

Tom's a month old - already

Yesterday Tom turned 1 month old. Isn't he cute? And he still has all that LOVELY hair! People keep commenting on how much hair he has, how lovely it is, and how much it sticks up :oD I really hope he doesn't lose it like poor Jack did. I thought I saw a bit of cradle cap starting the other day, but what ever it was seems to have gone now (Maybe he was just a bit grubby?) It's already going too fast. I'm finding myself really not wanting to go back to work. I feel like I missed too much of Jack growing up by going back to work when he was only 6 months old. Tom will be 8 months old when I go back, and I still think it's too early. I want to be a stay at home mum! But anyway, nothing I can do about it right now. We need a lottery win or something ( or Mark getting a well enough paid job, hint hint! ;oD ) before I can really consider not going back or postponing when I do go back. So moving on.... We took the boys out yesterday. It looked like the weather was
