The Best Job In The World Is Being Your Mummy!!!

The best job in the world is being your mummy!

I didn't realise that every time you hurt, that I would hurt ten times more!

I didn't realise that whenever you looked up at me with that smile and those big brown eyes, it makes my heart just want to explode!

I didn't realise that you would bring such purpose and validation to my life!

I couldn't imagine ever having my life without you both and I'm glad that I'm yours and your mine!

Even now at age 7 and 5 years old, I still can't believe your here!!

Every now and again I pinch myself, sometimes even just that single thought can bring me close to happy tears!

I feel so blessed and so grateful for my title as your mummy for everyday I'm oh so proud, whenever I hear you shout out for me, I smile the widest smile.

You see some people take being a mummy for granted or act like 'kids' can sometimes be a burden, get in the way of their careers or social life but I'd rather stay home and have an early night,

and then get up bright and early and go to the park and just sit and watch you play..

Ok that's a lie, I usually browse on my phone, or take a book or chat with the other mums on the benchies.. 

but in the background I'll listen out for your cries or giggles or your constant "watch me do this mummy" demands!!

I usually shout back the same ol same ol of how you need to be careful and come here let me wipe your mucky hands!!

I just want you to know that as I plan for our future and sometimes have to work late.. or I get distracted by my blog or doing the cleaning.. your always ALWAYS my first priority!!

I remember when I was just like you princess saying how "I can't wait to grow up and be a mummy" and to think I am here, brushing your hair and listening to you say those same words.

I love you so much my beautiful Leshay and Jaray and I hope I make you proud to have you continue to say..

I have the best mummy in the world and I love her to the moon and back again, that's what I live for Every. Single. Day!!

Lemon and Ginger Tea

Lemon and Ginger Tea

It is just so cold outside!

..And I am not made for winter! It isn't too bad now that I have my new winter coats but still as much as I love wearing them, I cant wait for the warm sunny days to arrive when no coats are even needed!

I eat my vegetables often, but tend to struggle to eat fruit at this time of year. I feel happier within myself if I drink lots of water and have recently started drinking lots of hot boiled water. And after being given the advice from a friend, I have been drinking lots of hot lemon and ginger water too!

How I make mine:


  • I dice a piece of fresh ginger into small peices and place into a cup
  • then I slice a piece of fresh lemon and add that to my cup of ginger
  • I then pour over it with freshly boiled water and leave it to infuse for a few minutes before drinking it.

I love it! And I feel so much better for drinking it rather than drinking too many cups of coffee and english tea all day (with milk and one sugar) for me this is a nice, cosy, warming and relaxing drink to enjoy during our wintery days.

The benefits to this drink:

  • It's healthy
  • Rich in vitamins C and B
  • Prevents colds and flu
  • Great for your hair and skin
  • Full of anti oxidants
  • Great for stimulating digestion
  • Provides protection against the development of cancer cells and polyps
  • Builds up the immune system
  • Cost effective
  • Quick and easy to make
  • Basically it's great!! Lol

I tried to get my children to drink it too but they wasn't too keen, they have one or two sips to make me happy but then the rest is left and I hate waste so I tend to make it just for myself now and encourage them to drink plenty of plain water instead!

Have you tried drinking this before? Is there another drink that I could try along with this? I'd love to hear from you so be sure to comment down below.

Wishing you a happy Monday and a positive week ahead!
