Thackray Medical Museum

Thackray Medical Museum

Lucas is fascinated with the human body and what’s inside us. We’re always looking for days out for kids in Leeds. I said yes immediately when Thackeray Medical Museum asked us to visit for a review! We made a family day of it and took Daddy, Sienna and my niece, aged 6, along too. The History The building in which Thackray Medical Museum is set is filled with history. It first opened in 1861 as the purpose-built Leeds Union Workhouse….

Magic Mike Live London

The seed is planted….MML Live, London. Picture the scene, I’m sat on my sofa watching TV with the other half. Suddenly Channing Tatum shows his pretty face on the screen and announces that he’s bring MML Live London. I sit, bolt upright, ring my best mate Keri to inform her of this. A few days later the tickets are booked. Not just any tickets, front row tickets! We decide it will 2018’s birthday and Christmas presents all in one. An…

The Ramblings of A Guilty Mum – Nursery

The Ramblings of A Guilty Mum – Nursery

Previously, if you’d asked me what I thought about children going to nursery, I would have said it was the best idea. I would have told you that Lucas went from eleven months old. I would have told you it made him confident, independent and sociable. These are all still true. However, as Sienna begins nursery this week, I’m feeling mum guilt more than I ever thought I would. Our circumstances are totally different this time around. Sienna’s nursery place…

New Year Goals (2019)

New Year Goals (2019)

Ey Up and Happy New Year! I saw something on Instagram the other day that said that this was the last teen year that we would experience in our lifetime. Things like that freak me out. I get these “moments” where I just think “I don’t want to die” and my mind goes into a deep, dark place where my kids are without parents etc. It’s ridiculous and I try to snap myself out of it as quickly as possible….

2018 Look Book

2018 Look Book

I thought I’d take a look back at the year via my Instagram posts. Initially I intended to pick one photo per month, but that proved too difficult so I settled on two! Here’s my 2018 Look Book: When I look back on the year, it’s not been too shabby at all. There have been a few personal matters that I might share next year but overall, I’m so lucky to have a fab family, great friends and two beautiful…

One

My beautiful baby girl,  Today you are one. Twelve months, 365 days in this world and yet, it feels like only moments since I was sat in the peaceful birthing centre at Pinderfields Hospital with you (all 9lb4oz of you) in my arms, wrinkly, new and fresh. Today is your first birthday. You are my second born. You are my last baby. Daddy and I feel like our family is complete so, with no younger brothers or sisters to follow you….

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa, Ey Up! It’s Becka, it’s been a while since I wrote a letter to Santa. You see, my brother cruelly put the crazy idea that you’re not real in my head. After that, I stopped writing you letters. I’m sure you didn’t notice, I mean, you’re a busy man. Anyways, age 34, I believe. I’m one of your faithful elves; making sure children of the world…my children…are receiving their presents. Thank goodness you have us parents as well…
