Yes mum cards, Game of Thrones and Weddings


How is it Friday again already!? This week has gone ridiculously fast! Lots of soft play centres for me this week to try and keep K entertained as the weather has been awful. Someone needs to have a word with mother nature and remind her that it’s nearly May not December! Anyway, I digress. Here are my little loves of this week:


I’ve been making an effort to read my Yes mum cards this week. I try to read one every morning and apply the affirmation to the rest of the day.

It really helps me stay focused. I really do love these yes mum cards, there’s something about them that really helps me. When D was poorly in hospital as a newborn I found comfort in them and they kept me in perspective. Pretty big order for a card so small. I can’t recommend them enough.


Game of Thrones is back people!!! I repeat, Game of Thrones is BACK. Such a great episode that certainly disappoint.

You can find it on catch up if you missed it so I won’t disclose anything. I also finished the last in the series of Line of Duty last night too. Wow! That was bloody brilliant! Such good drama! Me and the hubby were literally on the edges of our seats! Thankfully it is coming back for a new series but I’m not sure how long we will have to wait for it.


This week I am making my home more organised and catching up with household chores that have been building up for weeks. Yes, I am the one with the ironing pile up to the ceiling! Not for much longer though.



I have been living in my “Mother” t-shirts from Selfish mother. I am obsessed with them. I have 3 at the minute and I am hoping to buy a jumper in the next few days, I’m just deciding which one I want! I love them because they are cool, casual and dead comfy when your just being mummy plus the profits go to a good cause! What can be better than that!?


This week I have been listening to toddler nursery rhymes! K has had quite a few CDs bought for her over the last 2 years with nursery rhymes and actions songs on them but we’ve never really listened to them because we didn’t have a CD player. I bought one the other day specifically so we can listen and sing along to the music. It gets annoying after you’ve heard humpty dumpty 5+ times but she loves it.

And Lastly

It’s one of my best friends weddings this Sunday and I am one of her bridesmaids so this week has been particularly busy making sure that all our dresses and clothes are ready for the big day plus any grooming that needs to be done 😉 I am really looking forward to it, it should be such a lovely day. I’m just hoping the weather stays dry for the occasion!

That’s it from me this week. Don’t forget to follow me over on Instagram if you want to see more of what I’m up to and loving during the week!

    I try to avoid ironing as much as I can. I really do not see the point in spending hours ironing only to crumple clothes as soon as they are worn. Whoever thought up ironing has a lot to answer for! I quite fancy one of the new winging it sweatshirts, I think that sums me up rather nicely! Have a great weekend.

      It was the winging it jumper that I had my eye on…still can’t make my mind up though 🙂 Ironing is the worst chore in the world I hate it. I do it on a very need to do basis which is basically just the hubby’s work shirts. Thanks for reading! xx

    The weather is so awful, today felt colder than it did in January! Hope we get some warmth soon or it will be winter again! x

      It really is isn’t it. I’m sat in my house in a big oversized cardigan and the heating on and I’m still cold. It needs to do one pronto. Thanks so much for reading xx

    Line of Duty was phenomenal wasn’t it? Such superb writing and acting. I was shouting at the tv and so worried he was going to get away with it (AGAIN!)
    I have the #mumboss Yes Mum cards and I love them. Perfect pick me ups! xx
