Toying Around

For his birthday, among other things, Burton was given a Fisher Price Little People Racing Ramps Garage (phew! That’s a mouthful!). I am sure that as parents, many of you will also have one in your home.

The garage comes with two cars and two people: a mechanic and his recovery vehicle and a car and driver. Now I noticed that the driver of the car was doing something illegal and naughty. Has anyone else noticed this aswell?

This is the person in question:


Now apart from his obvious bad taste in clothes (lol!), he is using his mobile phone whilst driving. Uhmmmmm! What a naughty thing to do, tut tut little person! It is against the law to drive and use a mobile don’t you know?!

Well except he isn’t driving because he has no hand on the steering wheel! I can’t work out what he is holding in his other arm. I guess he could have pulled over and made a call from the side off the road? After all, surely Fisher Price would not be teaching children that using a mobile phone whilst driving is allowed? I suppose it is only a toy but is it teaching youngsters incorrect conduct?

All I do know for sure is that the only real crime being committed here is a crime against fashion! Lol!

Happy 1st Birthday Burton

My dearest darling boy,

I cannot believe that the day has come when you, my gorgeous baby boy, celebrate your 1st birthday. You have made me so happy Burton, and since you came into my life it has made it more worthwhile and given me a purpose. I have enjoyed our first 12 months together and you have made me so proud to call myself your mummy. It has been an honour to watch you grow each day and change from an 8 lb newborn into the 27lb cheeky monkey you are today.

There were times when I was tired and I may have been a bit short with you in those first few weeks, and I am sorry for that. I know that now when you whinge it brings out the stress in my voice when I speak to you. Please forgive me for these moments and the ones to come, and just know that I love you and I will never intentionally want to cause you pain or upset but I know it is going to happen.

You have made me a better person and I feel I have the best job in the world! Thank you for being my funny, cheeky and gorgeous boy.

I will always love you more than words can say and apologise for those moments when I cry, and when I will cry when I feel overwhelmed – all mummies cause embarrassment!

I look forward to the future with you and wonder how much you will have changed again by this time next year.

Here is your last year in photos:

The Gallery – Can You See What It Is Yet?

This weeks theme at The Gallery from the brilliant ย Tara over at Sticky Fingersย isย 
Can You See What It Is yet?
The idea is to take a photo of an object but taken from a different perspective so it is not so easily recognisable and then you my blog visitors, are invited to see if they can see what it is! Simples!!

Right then, can you see what this is?


Any guesses?


Any ideas yet?


So have you worked it out?ย 



Here is the answer










Well done if you correctly guessed it is my masher

No rest for the wicked!

So here I am. It is 8am on a sunny Sunday morning and I am wide awake and have been since 5.47am!! Nothing different to any other morning you might think and you would be correct.

The difference though, is that Burton stayed at my Mum’s last night as I had a night out – my first girlie night out since November 2008! – so I did not need to get up early this morning but as you can tell this has not happened.

The even more frustrating thing is that I have had even less sleep than had I not gone out, and Burton had been here! I rolled in to bed at 2am so I have had less than 4 hours sleep!! I had hoped that I would drop back off again but alas, it was not to be. So no doubt by the time Burton is returned to me in a few hours that is when I will be able to nod off but I wont be able to! It is just typical!

I guess I must just enjoy getting by on as little sleep as possible!
