Love – Soppy Stuff

Life, Love and Dirty Dishes is mainly about parenting.  Living life with small people and the situations we find ourselves in.  Love refers to the soppy stuff.  Let’s face it, we sometimes moan when we can’t pee in peace, we sometimes wish leaving the house wasn’t a military operation.  But would we change things? Never.  Because at the end of the day we love the small people that have turned our worlds upside down, to the moon and back.  I hope you enjoy these posts of a more heart felt nature.

Last Firsts

I have only ever wanted two children.  I have everything I want. I absolutely do not want to go through another pregnancy,  I’m too old, and it’s too hard.  There’s the tiredness, the sickness, the crankiness, the tears, the sheer discomfort, the sleepless nights, the weeing all the time, the not being able to do up […] Read more…

The Things We Left Behind

My husband and I took a bit of a trip down memory lane yesterday.  We had an appointment in a part of town where we spent most of our weekends in our life before children drinking with friends until the small hours.  It looked very different in the daylight.  Quite grim actually.  And whilst I have no […] Read more…

Walking With Toddlers

Thanks to a pig in a red dress puddles are hours of fun.  Hours.   Why walk when you can […] Read more…

Storing Childhood Memories

It’s true what people say… “Childhood goes so quickly, blink and you miss it”. I read a beautifully written blog by mrsgoresdiary which really sums this up called ‘Refusing to Blink’ http://mrsgoresdiary.com/2014/05/28/refusing-to-blink-savoring-the-season-of-childhood/ Having a baby is very much living in the here and now.  It’s all about how long until the next feed?  Can I squeeze […] Read more…

What I want for you…

I’ve been watching My Last Summer on channel 4.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a group of terminally ill people who are brought together and the friendships they from as they deal with their illness and the impact it has on their families. Tough viewing and food for thought.  The hardest bit for […] Read more…

True Love

I believe in a thing called love. I really do. I’m a romantic. I believe some people are meant to be together.  Like Ross and Rachel.  From the moment he brought her the cameo broach, I spent the next ten years rooting for them to have a happy ending. There are so many things that […] Read more…
