Single mother to 3

I have now joined the singles club…well I joined it about 7 months ago. Being a single mum is hard but when you have 3 children and single that’s when it really is a challenge. Me and the kids have all looked after each other and had some great times.

So me and Ant just never made it…wasn’t meant to be. He never turned into the prince I wanted.but life goes on.

Sometimes I feel sad that after ten years of being together that it never worked. Sometimes you just want the relationship to last just like your mum and dads marriage. Generations are changing so much people jump in so quick nowadays, having babies vertally straight away! Me and Ant were together a year before I found out I was pregnant with Marley. I don’t regret having my kids but looking back now I should of got to know Ant because 10 years later I’m sat here saying we are two different people. 

I feel like I have failed the children because I failed a marriage. But surly the kids would rather a happy mummy? 

I always say to everyone now who knows what the future holds? But I know one thing and that’s to leave the past where it is and move on to new exciting journeys.

Me and Ant have remained good friends for the sake of our children. No Child should be brought up with bickering parents that wouldn’t be fair, no Child caused the break up so why should they be punished?!

 Since the break up I’m 2 stone lighter and more confidence than I ever had now I’m going to shine and be the best I can for my 3 beautiful children.

Marley does Jado Kuin Do


So Marley has had an opportunity to start Jado Kuin Do, here is our review after 4 weeks.

What is Jado Kuin Do?

Family Martial Arts, developing confidence, better concentration, discipline , coordination and balance, leadership skills, teaching young people to have inner strength.

Marley is really enjoying Jado Kuin Do. At first Marley had no coordination and definitely no balance after 4 weeks I can see a huge difference, Marley is concentration a lot more than he has in the last 3 weeks.

Marley attends the Jado Kuin Do in the Thame  sports centre he is taught by a trained and qualified instructor called John and his 2 daughters, I find the group well lead with lots of fun and games to amuse the children but also there is discipline to learn.

I wish I put Marley into this group earlier as he really enjoys it. Marley’s has asked if he can attend everyday.

Jado Kuin Do is held all around the country in the UK to find your local group follow this link:

Weekendbox review

   I’m a mummy to 3 children my oldest Marley is very hard to keep entertained most the weekends, as I normally have weekend chores to catch up on, the piles of washing to get through and 2 baby’s sort out through the day! 
   Marley doesn’t get much mummy time. So when I got offered to do the http://www.Weekendboxclub.Com I thought me and Marley could have a day with each other doing fun things, and as Marley loves craft what better way to sit down with the weekend box In your onesie on a wet miserable Sunday!!!



The weekendbox comes with everything you will need to do each activities, there are 4 craft activities to be made. Our weekend box theme is Aztecs here is the gang!


The weekend box arrived very quickly and fits through the postbox so no waiting in for a delivery, it arrives in a beautiful, colourful box that got Marley excited Straight away!!



Marley made a parrot, and tiled coaster, and a string picture and the 4th activity was to sit down and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate after all our hard crafting, you also get a certificate at the end that can be coloured in by your child, there really is no waste!! Marley really couldn’t be happier, he really enjoyed this weekend box, and I now have signed up to receive every weekend so Marley and I can have some time together!

The weekend box are for ages from 3-6 years have given me a promo code for all my wonderful readers to receive a Free weekend box this runs out on the 9th February 2015 so get there quickly!!  Promotion code is SAMANTHA177

This is the best idea I have ever seen for kids,  we are now excited about receiving our next weekend box.

Head over to

Happy weekends!!!! 



Time should stand still!!

Why are the days, weeks, months even the years going so quick???
  Is it because I’m getting older?  Have days got shorter, everything feels like it is speeding up!!
  All these precious moments are passing me by to quick never enough time to enjoy it!!

Feeling sad that my twins will be one in 2 weeks, they were these small baby’s laying in my arms not so long ago and now they are these crazy baby’s that like to pull chunks out of your head, like to wipe there snotty noses on you when your not looking, thinking there giving you these loving cuddles, arguing, fighting over toys,  they are so demanding at the age of 1, were have those sweet and innocent non demanding baby’s gone!!!

  I felt tearful the other day when I was packing all there tiny baby clothes, you always wonder to yourself were they really that small?!  Do I really have to get rid of these beautiful small clothes, can’t I just have another set of twin baby’s……..No that’s it for us no more children, perhaps this is why it’s going so fast I’m trying to cling onto them being baby’s!!!

I can’t believe Marley will be 5 this year feels like yesterday I had him and the twins!!
This time last year I was size of a whale, complaining how uncomfortable I was, now I want that moment back, the moment I saw them for the first time, feels like it was last night!!

Mikey is now walking, and Elle just learnt to stand, it’s all moving to quickly.

Don’t ever wish life away, one day you be sat thinking wish the years would slow down,  before I know it they will all be leaving home and having there children…… 😦

Love you Marley, Mikey, Elle the 3 of you will always be my baby’s!!!






Week 2 my changes

OK so my second week of weight changes, this week I have lost 7lb!
How!!?? Well I decided not to call it a diet, because I will never stick to a “diet” so what I did this week is cut all the sugary items out such as:
Fizzy drinks
Juice with added sugar
And I replaced this with my five a day which I never eaten for as long as I can remember! Also eating 1 hot meal a day instead of 2, as work provided a hot lunch as well as my husband when I came home! I have also been drinking water anyone that knows me knows I can’t stand water!
  I have also been parking my car further away and walking that extra and walking were I can, even offering to take the dog for a walk, so week 2 has been about changing my bad habits into healthy ones! 🙂

How do I feel:
    I feel I have more energy, I don’t feel so sluggish, not as tired and feel more alert!

  What do you guys think.
