My Mummy Sanity Savers!

Being a parent is hard sometimes, especially when the kids are attempting to poke each others eyes out with Minions. Add that to the distinct lack of decent sleep and you could quite easily find yourself sobbing into your soggy ham sandwich.

Here’s a few of my Mummy Sanity Savers:


I bet the first thing you think is “where the bloody hell is the wine woman?!” but as I’ve posted before I rarely drink anymore as I’m a total lightweight and 1 drink makes me want to have a nana nap. Instead, coffee and I are now total besties. Without it I just couldn’t function.

I’ve heard lots of people moan about the Kinder egg opening vids on Youtube but I honestly love them, if it weren’t for them I’d never get a whole meal cooked or straighten my hair – not that it looks any better afterwards mind you! Get them sat down with the Ipad and a lady opening egg after egg and you won’t hear a peep out of them!

The biggie for me is chocolate, if I’m stressed hiding out with a bar of chocolate is the way to go. There’s been a few times I’ve “nipped to the car for something” and then given the game away by choking on the chocolate buttons I’ve hastily shoved in my gob!

So what would you add?What are the things that get you through?

      2. Oooh now I’m curious lol. Haha with both my pregnancies I craved my grandad’s pickles so much so I could literally smell and taste them lol. Unfortunately it was a craving I could never satisfie as my grandad has passed on. Xx
