Ok – I know that sounds bad but let’s be honest, times are hard and we all need to do a little more with a little less nowadays. Redundancy and my move to self-employment has been a shock to the old purse strings so I’ll be the first to admit that with 3 mum’s to buy for between us (4 if you count me!), we need to look for ways to make the pennies stretch a little further. Therefore when the guys from Pouch first got in contact to explain what their tool does, I was a little dubious at first but soon got very excited. Let me explain…..

We’ve all been there right – we’ve made a decision, we feel happy about said decision which has been carefully thought out and considered and then BAM….it hits. Mummy guilt.
Let’s face it, no matter what decision you’ve made – whether it’s moving type of feeding from boob to bottle, moving home from London to Birmingham or moving food from brown to wholemeal bread – the likelihood is if you’re a mummy, that you’re going to be feeling some level of guilt over it in some way.
No one told us about this when we were pregnant did they? The level of guilt you feel about EVERYTHING, it seems to just be built into our mummy DNA starting from conception and is a very fine line of “you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t” as I can pretty much guarantee that whatever you decide you’ll feel guilt.
So, here’s my top three ways to try and survive it:

Unfortunately we have a sick house this week – Henry has a cold so has both a snotty nose and snotty eyes bless him which he has very kindly passed on to me and Darcie has some kind of tummy bug where she’s off her food and complaining of an ouchy belly. As of today it seems like she’s passed that onto hubby so between us all there’s not a healthy one in the house!
In fact the highlight of the week has been a trip to Go Outdoors to play in the tents. We’re determind to try and start camping again this summer, Henry will be 1 or thereabouts and Darcie will be coming up to 3 so it could be do-able I think with a little planning. However I have the feeling we’ll need a little more kit with 2 kids under 3 in tow!
Anyway…..he’s my Little Loves for the last week:
