Our First Family Holiday: Bluestone Wales – part 2

Last month Ian, the boys and I headed off to Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire, Wales for our first family holiday*. It was my first holiday in over 3 years and it was the first holiday the boys had ever been on. Last week I posted about Bluestone and our amazing lodge and this week I’m telling you about the things we got up to during our stay.

MONDAY

We arrived on a Monday and having factored in several pit stops along the way, it was well after 5pm by the time we reached Bluestone. We knew this would be the case so all we had planned for that evening was to unpack and chill out.

Beautiful Births #5

I love reading birth stories! After sharing my own two very different birth experiences [emergency c-section and natural VBAC] I decided to ask other mums and dads to share their wonderful birth stories with me too. I’m absolutely delighted that so many people want to share with me! If you’d like to share your birth story, send me an email or get in touch via Twitter or Facebook.
 
This week Sarah is sharing her beautiful birth story. She was induced after going 8 days overdue which then resulted in an emergency caesarean section.

Tell me your beautiful birth story…
 
We went in for induction Sunday morning at 8am due to high level of amniotic fluid and large estimated size of baby, 8 days over due date. I was examined by the midwife, I wasn’t dilated but she could just reach the cervix, and a pessary was inserted at 10am. I was put on a monitor for an hour and then we waited around having strolls in between to try and help things along.

REVIEW: George at ASDA Babywear #WBabyWT

Over the last 7 days Baby J has been a mini fashion blogger and has been wearing some super cute outfits* from the range of babywear at George at ASDA. I’ve been sharing the chosen outfits each day over Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the #WBabyWT hashtag along with extra photos of him looking ridiculously gorgeous in each outfit on my Instagram account.

Everything arrived promptly by courier the day after being ordered.

10 Reasons Why Breastfeeding and Urinating are NOT THE SAME

Every time I think the world has finally calmed its tits about breastfeeding in public, another story hits the media and the planet goes mad again. My Facebook and Twitter feeds end up full of people bickering and then lo and behold someone makes a comment like:

“Yeah, it’s natural, but so is urinating and you don’t see me doing that in public, lol.”

There’s always a “lol” because omg that’s sooooo funny and original and nobody has ever said that before, ever. </sarcasm>

There is no comparison between breastfeeding and urinating. NONE. They are in no way, shape or form the same thing. Two completely different bodily functions, two completely different purposes.

For the small minority of people who need a lesson in biology some help understanding this here is a list of 10 reasons why breastfeeding and peeing are NOT THE SAME:

REVIEW: Mummy Workouts + free trial for readers!

Before I had my children, I used to be a regular gym-goer. I would go about three times a week, mixing it up with a yoga class, a spin class and a cardio workout. It was great! Since becoming a mummy, my priorities have changed and some of my personal hobbies had to go – my gym membership was one of them.

I miss going to workout classes at the gym; DVDs just aren’t the same. I can pause a DVD when I get tired, whereas being in a class spurs me to push myself and carry on. The instructor on the DVD can’t give me pointers or answer my questions. That’s where Mummy Workouts steps in!
