It's been a while since my last Confession's post and with all the drama that surrounds being a Mum at Christmas, I thought now would be a good time to write a new one. Even though I carry my beautiful leather Filofax with me everywhere I go, I'm really only carrying the information that I … Continue reading Confessions of a Mediocre Mum: Coo Parenting App.
I haven't posted at all throughout November. Life has quite literally gotten in the way. I spent 6 days in New York with my BFF Sarah at the end of October and when I came home on the 1st November, all I wanted to do (after the laundry) was spend time with the children.

I had all the midwives and breast angels and consultants all telling me that "Breast is Best" and if I couldn't feed my Son myself, I would be shrinking his … Continue reading Confessions of a Mediocre Mum: Feeding
I admit I haven't been able to stick to the #BloggingFundamentals course as strictly as I had intended to. I allowed myself to believe that even though I was off work for the Six weeks holiday with my 6 and 1 year olds, I would still have loads of time to myself to get shit … Continue reading Confessions of a Mediocre Mum
How many times a day do you hear "Mummy! Mum!" (Or Dad for you cool dudes that are taking one for the team at home). The constant whiney tone that comes with "Mummy, mummy, mummy" all day is the ONLY thing that makes me look forward to my two days a week in the office. … Continue reading Mummy, mummy, mummy!
Is anybody out there? It's me, Lola. so day three of the #bloggingfundamentals course is to discover 5 new tags and neighbours. I would normally search for Beauty tags or stationery and lifestyle... But I need to meet the neighbours right? Come and say Hi and give me a nudge in the right direction. My … Continue reading Hello, are you there?
This is my first task for the #BloggingFundamentals course. How exciting! So here I am. I am Lola, just turned 30, working administration part time until my Teaching Qualification becomes a reality. I have two children, Dinky Doo and Nola Too (there's a spin off slogan in there somewhere). I love to write. I'll write … Continue reading Lola Peroni: Why I’m here.
