Mocc -ons Review*

Before we moved in to our current house I use to like the idea of having laminate flooring as I thought it would be a massive plus with having a messy toddler roaming about and whilst it does make cleaning up any spillages quick and easy the downside is obviously that it can be very slippy for a toddler who loves nothing more than running around like somebody gone mad and there have been plenty of times where he has been running a little too fast and he has gone head over heels.

That is where Mocc-Ons come in handy. Mocc-Ons are a cute mix between a slippers and socks but with a thicker soft leather sole that have grips to prevent your little one from slipping and sliding as they wander about. They will also keep little feet nice and toasty but still allow for lots of movement and you don't have to worry about them falling off every 5 minutes.




The Mocc-Ons come in four fun designs: Pink Spot, Zebra Stripe, Rainbow and funky Cow Print and are available in sizes:6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months. Thomas has them in 18-24month and I would say they fit quite well but then I think Thomas has quite small feet which are around 4&1/2-5  so if your toddler has bigger feet than these you may find they wont fit which is a bit disappointing.

I would love to see these in bigger sizes as I think they would be great for maybe 2-3yr olds too.

Sisters Are For Sharing Laughter And Wiping Tears




 
There is no better friend than a sister. And there is no better sister than you.

I meant to blog about this quite a while ago now but as you may have noticed I haven't really been around much, truth be told I haven't really felt inspired to blog lately and I haven't wanted to just put out half hearted posts just for the sake of it. Although I have missed blogging and I am trying to ease myself back in to it.
Anyway I digress, shortly after I split from David my sister told me she was sending a couple of little packages to cheer me up. I wasn't expecting such a thoughtful and well planned out surprise as I got. My adorable sister sent me 3 small packages marked up 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3of 3 but I couldn't open them until I had received all three packages. 

I admit I cried when I finally got to open all three it was such a lovely thoughtful thing to do she sent me a bar of chocolate with "All you need is chocolate" on it along with a picture of Thomas which has on it "All you need is your boy" Next up was a bottle of wine that had a personalised label on it which said "All you need is wine" and the final thing was a Me to you card which you automatically know is off my sister as she is obsessed any you only ever receive Me to You cards from her. It has such a lovely message inside which had me in tears.

Even though I'm the big sister (Well the little big sister) I know I can always count on my little sister to be there to cheer me up when I am having a bad time. I just hope that one day Thomas has a sibling to do the same for him.

Somebody New

Just after Christmas I was being the shoulder to cry on for a friend who was having a bit of man trouble she had recently started dating somebody new and I can remember saying back then that I'm glad I didn't have to go through all of that again. The whole meeting somebody new, dating, starting afresh I was glad I was married. Fast forward a couple of weeks and my world was tipped upside down, my marriage ended and I was suddenly facing the prospect of having to one day dip my toe in to the dating world again. The thought of it filled me with dread, the awkward first dates, the nervousness around somebody new. I'm not terribly keen on meeting new people as I am a shy person and I will be honest meeting a new person in a romantic way scares me.

I started to think how would I actually meet somebody new? I don't get out much with being a mum and would the fact that I am a mum scare people off? I knew it wasn't going be the same as the last time I was single when I could go out whenever I wanted when most of my friends were single and they were all up for a night out. How do you actually meet somebody new these days anyway? I didn't fancy going out of the pull around the town I feel like I'm too old for that now even though I am only 24. I also didn't like the idea of internet dating as it always sounds to be full of creeps so how on earth do you actually find somebody new?

The truth is I have met somebody new, well he's not really "new" it's somebody I have known for a few months but even after David and I split up it is somebody I never imagined anything happening with, somebody I never thought would be interested in me in that way.

It's still early days and we are both wanting to take things slow because obviously he knows my situation, but I feel like I can say I'm happy for the first time in a long time and quite a lot of that is down to him it's funny how you can find happiness in the most unlikely places.

Us

Now we know that it's us versus the world now.
Me and you against the world now.
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us.



It has just been "Us" for nearly 2 months now and I will be honest here it doesn't feel much different for me. I keep having people asking me how I am and how I am getting on and I am honestly fine but I owe a lot of that to Thomas he is what keeps me going. I am sure that if he wasn't with me I would have pretty much given up and I would be a crying mess because I have been there before. Thomas is the reason I have a smile on my face and he is the reason I am being positive about our future. 

Personally I am getting on great. I am just doing what I have been doing for a long time now. The big thing for me will be dealing with my finances and getting myself sorted in that way as that was something David always dealt with and I just sorted out money for my car and organising money for the weekly food shop. Now I have to organise paying all of the other household bills myself. I am sure I will get there and I will have everything organised for us and I will be completely independent. 

Of course there are times when I get lonely when Thomas goes to bed and I have always felt like that but I think the fact that I am actually single now it is as if that feeling is increased. I have found myself going to bed around 9pm just because I am fed up of my own company. Perhaps I need to get another hobby so any suggestions are welcome.
