It has been precisely one month since we first began ‘mission potty training’ with our Little Princess. I am proud to report that our little lady has mastered the art of using the potty and even better, the toilet too! E no longer requires nappies during the daytime which has already saved us a small fortune and a ton of bag space, which meant that I could finally treat myself to a new handbag, cheers Princess!
The first few days were difficult in all honesty, we asked E whether she needed the potty every ten to twenty minutes and I was beginning to feel like a broken record.…
Welcome to this weeks #LittleLoves, it’s been a fairly hectic week with preparing for my son turning seven and so I haven’t really done a great deal of watching, reading or anything remotely relaxing. There are however a few bits and pieces that I have shown a particular love for during this week and will of course share these with you.
I keep meaning to sit down, relax and get into a new book but I never seem to find the time. I spend a lot of my free time either reading blogs or blogging myself and really other than catching up with the soaps, I just don’t seem to get a moment to kick back and to devour a book from cover to cover.…

I cannot believe that it was seven years ago to this day that you arrived in our lives, our first-born child. From the moment that I held you in my arms, your steel-blue eyes looking into mine, my life changed forever. I never knew that I could feel a love as strong as I do for you, you became my new World, my new life and my reason for being. Becoming a parent has made me a better person because I now live my life through my children, seeing the World from a new perspective, from a new set of eyes and with new hope.…
J turns seven on Friday, he is already so excited that he is fit to burst. This year for his birthday he has asked for a Laptop, this may seem like a huge ask as it is an expensive gift however, following my recent switch to a new Macbook Pro, Paul has been using my previous laptop which is much larger and far more suited to his needs for shorttoons.com, in turn this has freed up Paul’s old laptop which he has refurbished for a certain young man. It may not be new but I am fairly sure that it will suit J down to the ground and at the end the of the day, it didn’t cost us a penny (unless you count the money spent on a Mac and that’s an investment though right?).…
