Sunday lunch out!
ALL the 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Please tell me I'm not the only one?
I MUST remember I am only getting maternity pay 😩🀣 Although I have recently found a new love for brand new clothes on eBay! I got a zara blouse for a fiver (it came and my boobs don't fit BUT it was a fiver none the less)
I have been good and stopped watching the shopping channel though but if I'm honest my biggest struggle is those dam centre baskets in @aldiuk 😩
They are literally slowly taking me to bankruptcy because I cannot seem to not leave without a hose, new bed sheets, 67 sippy cups, a garden lamp and some One off BBQ sauce sachets πŸ˜©πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ (Oh and last week I got a tool box) πŸ˜‚
Honestly...😩 #shopping #aldi #maternity #foodshop #onlineshopping #opps #oppsididitagain #aldiuk #onlineshop #shoppingchannel

Love is powerful. Love is your kids letting you lie in til 9:45am πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ˜‚ (And despite the lay in you still wake up like you have been dragged trough a bush backwards)
I am far from a royalist. I'm not really bothered and in the run up to the wedding I've been a bit 'whatever'..I put it on at about 10am whilst feeding the smallest human and sat in my pants and I was HOOKED! I cried like a baby from the moment Harry got out the car, I was in the edge of my seat when Meghan got out the car, I screamed AMEN at the preacher and I most certainly drooled over David Beckham and IDRIS Elba! πŸ˜‚
Today was beautiful. From the weather, to the ceremony, to her outfit, to the choir and no doubt the rest of their day.
What a wonderful day history was made.
P.S I look slightly better now (post shower and hair brush) than this pic this morning but I was just so happy I slept so late πŸ˜‚

Those feet 😍

When we were getting stuff for Bella it was so different to when we bought for Sophia because we thought we knew it all so didn't buy half the useless stuff we bought first time round.

However our cockiness soon came to bite us when we realised we didn't have a changing mat (totally blaming Bella coming early and not the fact I didn't even think of it). You would of thought we learnt from the first #poonarmi but nope. The sofa has been bleached twice and I've never changed my bedsheets so many times πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Anyway the lovely @mybabiieofficial saved the day by kindly sending us this gorgeous mat! The print is just 😍

Also so many people asked me about nappies and wipes and if I'm honest I buy what's on offer πŸ€£πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ so I pretty much have most brands in the cupboard if they were on offer at some point!
We are loving the @kitandkinuk bottom balm though and have been using that on Bella.
So my top tip: don't get brave and try life without a changing mat! πŸ˜‚ it saves lives. And by lives I mean upholstery and bed linen πŸ‘πŸ½ #baby #babychange #nappies #wipes #kitandkin #lush #babychange #feet #babyfeet #cute #pink #babygirl #mumlife #opps #gifted #changingmat

A huge thank you to all the likes/comments and DMs on my last post. You all know how much body positivity and my own journey means to me and I get frustrated when something so triggering happens!
Anyway here is smallest baby smiling at all the love there is out there! (Ok probs not - she's prob about to fart but I will take that πŸ’πŸ½) I will continue to fight the good fight and do what I can to make people feel good because how I felt was some of the lowest points in my life and if I can do something to let people know they aren't alone and to help change their mindset then that's what I will do. It's why I started my events - it's why I try and tell my story on here too.
Again - thanks for the support and don't forget you have until the 29th May to use the code 'Friend' to get your ticket or a gift ticket for only Β£20

Any problems let me know!

Today I've seen a post from #KimK selling appetite suppressants.
I literally could just face palm the ground with how stupid and irresponsible that is with someone who has probably got 90% of her following as young men and women.

I stopped dieting when I realised it was massively effected my mental health. I became obsessed and it took over and was slowly destroying so many aspects of my life. I am not saying people can't loose weight and be body positive, I'm not saying you have to only be 'fat' to be body positive BUT I am saying you do NOT need to force yourself to starve! This is what an appetite suppressor will do! It will stop you eating, eating nutrients your body needs and how she thinks it's appropriate to sell that is beyond me!
I started posting pics of what my body looked like because I rarely saw fat rolls, cellulite and thunder thighs out there and I was obsessed with following accounts that were '#bodygoals' until I realised mine was just fine the way it was.
I wish people were more responsible with what they post and understand the effects that can have on people who follow them especially celebs like KimK. She doesn't need money, she doesn't have to do #ads and I truly believe any brand you work with should be a partnership, one you really believe in and would recommend to family, friends, use on your children etc whether being paid or not.

Kim has two daughters. I can't imagine her letting them have these lollipops! Or encouraging them to take them so why do it to other people's daughters? Why is that ok?
I strive for healthy body, that DOES NOT mean slim. I want to be healthy enough to have a good life and see my girls grow up. I strive for them to see All different body types so they never feel like theirs isn't 'normal'. They may be tall and slim or short and chubby and either way they will be beautiful if they are good people with good hearts.
You do NOT need to starve yourself. You do NOT need to kill yourself exercising striving for a body like KimK that no doubt isn't even natural or real!
Change your mindset, understand just how important and wonderful you are and please speak up if you don't feel ok. You are not alone

It's #mentalhealthawareness week and so many of you messaged me when I launched asking if I was doing a being a friend again to the events and I wanted to do something again.
So whether your gifting someone a ticket, purchasing for a friend, bringing someone with you or paying it forward then use the code 'FRIEND' to get an additional ticket for only Β£20.
This will run for the whole of #mentalhealthawarenessweek and offer will end midnight 20th May.
For those who are unsure what the events are about here is a little description of them both.. Motherhood & Mental Health is an open discussion about exactly that! Making it a safe space to talk openly about things people have experienced, currently going through or may fear both pre and post pregnancy & Birth.
Living your best life is inspired by the Jill Scott song 'Golden' and is all about using where you are now, who you are at your core and making choices so that you live your best life everyday!
There are a range of guest speakers coming to share their journeys with you all including much in demand @adambrux
He blew birmingham away! People were just new dropped at his journey and his outlook and I cannot wait for him to share that with you guys in the events coming up!
There is so much to share so if you can make a date, take a leap of faith and grab yourself and someone else a ticket!
The first is Southampton on Sunday 10th June! For more info on dates/locations etc then click the link in my bio.
My whole reason for starting these events was so I could share my story in the hope that others didn't feel so alone. A feeling I felt for a long time. If you have attended before thank you! If your coming - thank you.
If you are in FB then add the Fat Funny One GB group and see all events listed on there too.
Any problems / questions or queries just slide up in my DMs!

Family down!
Bella has a terrible cough bless her and Sophia has woken up with a bad stomach. I have a head cold but powering through.
Hoping it passes asap because seeing your small humans poorly is the worst. I am exhausted as Bella is feeding little and often and Sophia keeps coughing so after falling asleep at 8:30pm thinking I would cram in those hours it was a restless night for us.
Loads of cuddles, Fluids and rest for us ladies. I have so much work to catch up on and about 80 DM's πŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ but I will come back to everyone! When everyone goes down for a nap if I can stay awake then I will be coming back to you!
Thanks for always be so patient and supportive πŸ’—

No that isn't a baby bump πŸ˜‚ that is a just had a baby, ate half a family tray of pasta bake & 2 mini magnums bump πŸ˜‚πŸ’πŸ½ I've not posted loads and everything is absolutely fine just enjoying some time away from the screen and in the evenings I have been trying to do more reading rather than scroll!
My favourite author is @dorothykoomson_author and I think I have nearly read all her books including the newest 'The Friend' that came out in march and took me all of 48 hours to read lol I was obsessed!
I have all of them and have decided to read back over my faves (my best friends girl and Ice cream girls) and also reading some I haven't yet (I think only 2) including this one!
I talked about #selfcare on stories the other day and mine was to make a few changes to our bedroom which meant I had somewhere to really wind down! And my winding down now also includes reading myself to sleep!
Also the amazing @motherhood_rx Is hosting a book club with @dorothykoomson_author Next Tuesday and I booked a ticket within about 3 seconds of seeing the post and oh my gahhhddddddddd the excitement is too much!
I know so many of you messaged me when I posted about Dorothy's books before! Let me know your favourites below ⬇️⬇️ Also if you lover her books and know other authors similar please also recommend them below too!
So for now it's #wine, my #book and some down time ...(before the baby wakes up!) #selfcare #author #reading #booksbookclub #happy #stories #books #library #selflove #alonetime #mentalhealth #help #downtime #winddown #managingmyanxiety

πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ I mean at least I had it together for some time...even if it's only 45 seconds lol

Nephew is dropped back up to the midlands and by the size of my coffee (which you can't even really see here but it's a #Venti) you can guess that I am shattered!
I grand total is maybe 2 hours sleep last night but I survived lol to be fair it wasn't even the kids just my mind in overdrive about so much!
Luckily the girls are with Trevor so I have a few hours in the car (and services) to try and clear as much as possible from the fuzz that's in my head by the time I get home so they have my full attention.
So much happening it's nice to have a few hours to try and slowly pick through the chaos and try and get things back into order!
I am so so so looking forward to the events and getting back into the swing of things! Roll on the next event in Southampton on the 10th June - if your local comeeee! I am seriously looking forward to it πŸ’—
For more info click the link in my bio or simply slide up into my DMs and I will respond when I get home x

I SURVIVED!
I was quiet on stories and insta, email and phone (will attempt to reply today) but it was because I had 3 kids! Oh my gahd how do people do it! We went to Aldi and they all decided to cry. Like altogether like a little crying choir 😩🀣 I had my mum with me and still was like WTF! We then saw a dad in the aisle trying to explain to his crying kids they couldn't have magazines today..he then admitted defeat and went to the booze aisle and literally cracked open a can of Gin & Tonic in the middle of Aldi! πŸ˜‚ it was literally the funniest moment!
Home time. Dinner time and then bed time! I felt like a boss when 2 out of three 3 were fast asleep by 8:30 πŸ’πŸ½ and they have all woken up at 7:45!
Bella woke twice for quick feeds and was back down and my nephew woke twice for a dummy and that was it!! No drama! (Insert dancing GIF here lol)
Now I have to just keep them all alive and fed and happy for the rest of the weekend πŸ˜†
You mamas with two or more I salute you!!!! Like I need 8 arms, 3 sets of eyes,26 coffees, Baby TV on LOUD and constant, a few cases of wine and a case of baby wipes to get through this weekend alone πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚ #kids #family #myworld #mylife #babies #mybabies #mygirls #nephew #children #weekend #fun #sleepovers #baby #9weeks #14 months #5years #familyweekend #sendhelp
Did someone say soft play? YES PLEASE! Of and coffee and cake πŸ’πŸ½
