Enjoying Some Much Needed Me Time

Ryan has been abroad this week, with work, so I have been a bit too busy to blog. I always dread him going away, as I find it really hard to solo-parent.

Instead of squirting a few drops over a closed eye and hoping they will blink a bit in. 3. Getting a parent and toddler space at the supermarket. This is a real rarity, due to the amount of selfish idiots using them to save two minutes of walking from a normal space. Because that’s more important than a child’s safety, right? And parents love nothing more than battling to  ...
