#DeiseBloggers, event, waterford


Last weekend I attended the very first Waterford blogger event (aka #DeiseBloggers). It was such a great day and I am only recovering now to be honest! Meeting other bloggers is always great fun but I never expected to meet such lovely and beautiful girls. The event was free to attend but cost me a fortune because a room full…

Toddler Tantrums

Ellen / November 11, 2015

At the end of the month Aidan will be one and a half (or 18 months if that’s your thing) which means he is definitely a ‘toddler’. Toddlers are tough work – they can walk, or in his case run, they can climb and reach things that once towered above them. They are uncooperative and very independent, but they are…

Growing up & Moving on

Ellen / November 10, 2015

Why hello there! I see you’ve found our new little home on the internet. Well as you are all well aware we are due another little baby in March so ‘El and Baby A’ wasn’t really suitable anymore. Apart from the fact that Aidan is now a toddler, it also left me open to all sorts of favouritism guilt from any…
