Mummy + Me • June 2016

Image
How is it possible that I am writing my June Mummy + me. We have had a busy month full on appointments, an interview and sorting stuff out.
Sadly I haven't taken many pictures of both us us this month but this one makes me smule so much, her smile just lightens up my day.

This month we haven't had the best weather again so a lot of time has been a lot of indoor play and just enjoying each others company. She can now write her name herself, which makes me so proud and can almost count to 25 which is made.
The time we did enjoy outside was either enjoying the sun (when it shone)at the park with a picnic and also we attended our local Armed Forces Day which was a lovely afternoon out.
As of today we just have three weeks left of school runs before having my girl home for the summer holidays, I seriously cannot wait, but don't want to eish time away yet haha.
How was June for you? It was certainly better than recent months for us.

Abnormal cells • Smear test • My treatment

Image
Following in from my The importance of a smear test I wanted to share what happened next. I believe this is also as inportant as the first part and the more unknown.
I recieved a letter about two weeks after my smear saying that I had borderline cell changes and that I would be booked in for a colposcopy. This was horrible, the worst kept going through my mind, the C word. 
I then waited a further week for an appointment for the clinic which was 3 weeks wait again, this also made me a little more nervous. 

Well today I arrived at the clinic full of butterflies. My name was called and I went into the room. At first a nurse went through what she was going to do and asked a few questions, I was then asked to get ready. 
The colposcopy was a little uncomfortable, just like the smear and was a little longer. She then gave me the news that everything looks clear but would take a biopsy to confirm her investigation, this was the worst bit, it felt like a strong period pain but very low. The…

Our bedtime routine

Image
I shared our Morning routine a couple of weeks back and wanted to follow that up with a bedtime routine for you all. I am quite nosey and personally love posts like this, hopefully there are some other nosey people out there lol.

Our bedtime routine starts at about 6pm and Lilly is in bed at 7pm 
6 - 6.15pm - Bath time starts, this happens every other day due to her eczema. We play and use bath paint and have a good old wash
6.30 - 6.40pm Time to get out, time to get into pj's, creams on, teeth cleaned and hair dried. If it isn't bath night this is when out routine starts. 
6.50pm She is usually ready for bed now so we get her into bed and Daddy comes in to say goodnight and give her cuddles whilst making her some warm milk.
6.55pm Milk and story time for Lils, we always have a story which Lilly loves, this really calms her down and gets her ready for sleep.
7 - 7.10pm Time to say goodnight and tuck in time. We always say 'Good night, sweet dreams, see you in the morning,…

Space themed crafts

Image
Last week on Cbeebies was my little girls favourite theme to learn about, Space week. She absoloutly loves 'Stargazing' and has learnt a lot from it. She has also enjoyed learning about Tim Peake and where he is at the moment.
To coincide with space week I thought that we could do a couple of crafts to do with space. 

The first craft we did were shining stars, these were Lilly's idea so that Time Peake could see her from his 'space home'. These are so simple to do.
You will need: - paper cut into start - glue - glitter/glitter pens - sequins - other decotating bits ie. Sweet wrappers, wrapping paper, foam
This is so easy to do with your little one, I just put the glue on for her as there wasn't a lot left and let her have full rein of creativity. I love the way she made them both different. One has glitter glue pens on and the other has proper glitter.
The second craft we did was a space helmet. This again is very simple to do.
You will need: - A small box - F…
