Athena & Arlo – November 2018

It’s a short post from me today, as it’s already a day late and I’m also feeling pretty crappy so haven’t got the energy to write much! Plus if I’m honest the kids relationship is still very much love/hate as it always is. Of course always a lot more love than hate but this morning Arlo threw a book at…

Everyday Us: It’s five O’clock in the morning…

No, not that Lily Allen song but the time Arlo wakes up. Why five am? Who knows? We’ve tried changing various things, putting the heating on lower, higher, earlier, later, going to bed later, earlier, bigger dinner, less drink… nothing changes. He’ll suddenly shout for me, or cry out and when I arrive in his room he’ll say ‘I’m not…

All about me in Autumn

So this was originally the ‘October Blogging tag’ or something along those lines, so I’ve changed any mention of October to Autumn and am rebelling and posting this in November. I love reading things like this on other blogs as a great way to find out about the blogger, so if you’re new to Scrapbook Blog and don’t know much…

I’ve got tonsillitis again so don’t feel like going out in the cold as I have no energy to chase them around nor…

Me and Mine in October 18

Oh blimey, yet another speedy month behind us as we hurtle ever onwards to Christmas and a new year! We took these photos the weekend before last in the middle of a country walk around Slindon, where we headed for our annual pilgrimage to see the Pumpkin display. They’re a bit nutso looking as we had to try and get…

Scrapbook Loves – October 18

I’m back with another ‘Little Loves’ post, which is a round up of the things I’ve been loving (or perhaps not loving!) over the past month! Read This month I’ve read less books than normal as half term craziness meant I barely had time to sit down let alone read much! I listened to Lily Allen’s autobiography on the drive…

Sunday Scrapbook – What we got up to in Half Term

Ahhh, Half term is over and we’re back to normality tomorrow with school runs and swimming lessons! The week has gone so fast but that’s probably because we stuffed it full of fun, friends and time outdoors. The kids have mostly worn their spookiest clothes for the week too, which has been fun! Last Saturday the kids and I headed…

My experience with PCOS

I have PCOS – which stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. According to this article around 3.5 million women in the UK have it, but as the symptoms can vary so much from woman to woman everyone experiences it differently. As many as 20 percent of women can have cysts on their ovaries (which is called ‘PCO’) but when you have this…
