About bumpyroadtobubba

Mumma to Poppy Grace (born January 2011); forever friend to my furry buddies Bella & Bear; love spending time with family & friends, cooking, reading, writing, design & watching trashy TV (when I find time)!

An ENORMOUS HUGE GINORMOUS thank you to my amazing mumma for her tireless help and humour always, but particularly over the past few days. Almost every box is unpacked and my sanity is {barely} intact. The most important part of the … Continue reading

Little wonder I woke up exhausted!

Mumma, you’re doing it wrong

Love Bug had a great time unpacking her boxes in the kitchen. So much so that I wondered what I’d done wrong. I certainly didn’t have that much fun. Maybe for the next room I’ll wear Love Bug antennae, carry … Continue reading
