Half Term

So this half term I feel like my parenting is 100%…swimming lessons every morning, walks with the dog, shopping for the girls…I’ll conveniently forget about the 6 hour Netflix marathon I had the other day while the girls played upstairs πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Stressful day off!

So today was supposed to be stress free! My day off work and I had planned to take our dog to the groomers then do a bit of Christmas shopping…which I managed to do! However the car decided to break down on the way home…car full with bags, the dog and my newborn niece!!!

We were stuck on the junction of a roundabout so couldn’t even get out of the car.

Baby screaming, dog barking, impatient drivers beeping, chucking it down with rain – I could have cried!

Luckily we all managed to get home in one piece!

Happy days eh πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

Happy Saturday 😊

So it’s been another crazy week, work has been hectic as always, the house hasn’t cleaned itself, the dog is ready for a bath, he stinks and the car sounds like a box of spanners!

I’ve decided I’m going to forget all that this lovely Saturday morning and relax…until the kids start arguing and I resume back to manic mum.

Happy Saturday people ❀️

Half term!

So it’s been half term this week and I’m, as always, torn between being fun and outgoing for my kids and staying in bed and resting my tired aching body!

Of course I don’t get to stay in bed so it’s been a mixture of swimming and athletics lessons, dog walking, shopping, face painting and trick or treating!

Babysitting job anyone??! πŸ˜‚

My very first blog!


First let me introduce myself, my name is Claire and I’m 36 (but definitely 21 in my head). I live in Yorkshire, UK with my 2 daughters aged 13 and 7, and our crazy (slightly aggressive) dog Milo. I work part time as a primary school teacher…which often feels like a full time job!

Anyway, as I don’t have an adult at home to share things with, I thought I’d start a blog. I’ll blog the highs and lows of my single mum life, I’m sure many of you will resonate πŸ˜‰ I will also share some kid friendly vegetarian recipes.

I will leave it there for now…watch this space!
