It's just hard

Get your minds out of the gutter! 

Mumming..... Who knew it is hard to deal with super active toddler. Did you know that aged between 12-24 months or so they have tantrums!... 
And it is normal... 

It is very hard to deal with. The big man cannot quiet express himself ... So he screams and screams and some time throws stuff. More often when I pick him up to soothe hit flaps is arms around and I get slapped a lot... Or he bangs his head on the floor as a protest. 
And this is normal. Who knew?! 
Toddlers cannot quiet say or express what they hey want or need so tanties are happening.
My Facebook mamas said that it will pass and I just need to relax and not to worry. That it is only a stage... 
Basically motherhood is kicking my butt at the moment it's not fun... 
We are also started using reusable nappies with hope that big man will realise when he needs to go and will be willing to sit in the potty.. But so far he is still sits in it like a chicken: feel in the bowl and squats down as if keeping his eggs safe... 
Potty training is another thing that bugs me... 
And the usual sleeping issues. He doesn't sleep throw the night. And he wakes up a lot. And sleeps with us. And wakes up early... 
So there we have it mumming is driving me banana... And sometimes I feel like a failure... 
But some times, he would just come up to me and give and a kiss and then I think I am doing a pretty good job!

Date night - Stephen's Christmas present

I just love presents that give more than things, that give experiences and emotions. So the awesome gift he got was the tickets to see Ed Byrne

My dearest said that he will always make this lovely face .... 

It was the 3rd time we saw him. Steve himself saw him 4 times. And every time we laughed so hard...

It is also very nice to see how his comedy changes with his circumstances. Now he is a parents and talks a lot about his kids. We can definitely relate to that! 
Mr Burn also comes across as a feminist. Which is awesome! But he has his own reasons for that... So freaking funny! 
Actually he did talk about the important stuff. But in a funny way. 
And I must say if my child picks up his own clothes they do not have to be gender specific... So hooray for pink shoes and leggings!
And we are so getting a DVD when it is finally released. Loved you Ed!

from this to this...

I have just removed all the pictures from my phone. 
Makes me so proud... and feel so much love for my little man.

Some one needs a hair cut but I cannot bring my self to give him to some one with sharp objects in their hands... yes I am being over dramatic. I like him curly and floppy!

Shiny. Nudity.... well it must be awards' season

I love fashion. I love films and series. Yes I am actually addicted. Well aren't we all in a way. It is sad but it is true....
The award season is upon us. And anyone who is anyone wants to strut their stuff... 
Golden globes. Fun all around. But here are the looks I loved the most.

Jamie Alexander in this awesome geometrical print gown. She is in this new show that I have been meaning to watch. Doesn't she look beautiful yet some how fierce? 

My favourite gal Alicia Vikander... is simply divine...

She is the actress to watch. Even if she was in that pile of... 7th son. She is just like a fresh wind in the tones of dark gowns and cut outs. 
Yes, what's up with all the cutouts?! Or Kate Hudson in a bandeau? I don't get it.

Eva Green even if so pale but some how that shade of Champagne works... Unlike Roonie Mara, now that girl needed her colours rethink. 
And I truly enjoyed the Gaga's old glamour... even if she did bumped Leo. 

Think that JLaw and JLo are fab. 
Jenna is just so beautiful and Olivia Palermo is the dress I want to have!

But this... 

Kate Blanchette is stole the show in my book. Not too dressy but so wonderfully understate and high fashion at the same time. This woman can do no wrong... 

And if in doubt. Go for shiny!

I love this look on Melissa Mccarthy. She is just such a beauty in this. 

Would you agree with me on the distasfull nakedness of the cut outs and some strange colour choices? Like think Giuliana Rancic.... 

And as for men's fashion I really loved David Oyelowo 

That's a man who is not afraid of some flare! 

Sad week. Cancer sucks!

It has really been a bad week for some big people passing... 

Week has started with terrible news about Bowie. The amazing artist. I didn't even realised how many songs I like are his. He was still young and with new album coming out... the news made even sadder. 

Space Oddity is one of my very favourite. Commander Chris Hadfeild made it truly special... 

Yesterday as I was fighting with the offspring about the nap time, I looked on twitter to shock news about Alan Rickman! Now that was ... 
We just saw his latest film... the little chaos. Here is the blog post about it.

All I can say that we all something special with these great men!

Review... In a way...

I consider my self a gym bunny. When we lived in Birmingham if I was not at work I was in the gym or cinema next door. Oh that was wonderful. Bad day at work? Gym time, angry speed running to loud music until I wasn't thinking angry thoughts.... Or gym and then a film as a reward. 
It was nice. My body was in a good shape. When we had a hard week at work I think was at my thinnest and fittest... But with a big man in our life's life became more fun and I do not have time for my self. There is always something else to do. So I have tried going back to the gym. That didn't work. 
I do see all these super fit mamas on intagram and I am jealous of their awesome achievements on body front and that they have time to them selves. Amazing work ladies! Actually one of them said that babies will grow and leave but your body will stay with you... got me thinking!
You might want to suggest that I work out when big man is asleep. Well he was up about 3 times a night and work up at 6am so I need this nap as much as he does. 
What am I to do?! 
Oh and my mother isn't helping. "Oh you're so fat!"... Just for a second I saw her as a character from American Dad...

So I get super annoyed with myself and fight the embarrassment and purchase Jillian Micheals DVD. 
With everyone's raving about Kayla and all the play base eating thing that I have totally forgot about the original fitness badass! Well for me at least! 

I had it in the house for about 3 weeks. I don't want to admit that I own the work out DVD. It seems sad to me. And I don't think I would enjoy it or it will have results. ... I finally put in on yesterday. 
And I worked hard. Even had to pose and redo stuff when big man wanted to play and disrupted the circuit. 
It is the 30 day shred DVD. 
I was sweaty after these 20 mins. I also need to get some smaller weights. And I was so happy after. 
Today my body is in this pleasant pain. I shall stick to this routine. But when the big man is in bed. He does get excited with all the jumping around and gets in a way ever so slightly. 
I am DVD workout convert!! Who would have thought.

New me bs

Well here we go I am doing this! I am making resolutions... No I am setting goals for new year. Goals are better then resolutions, more achievements rather and absolute pants! 
Well I don't think I know anyone who actually managed to keep up with theirs. Neither have I! Well I only made these one year, it's in right of the beginning of this blog. 

Taking my birthday meltdown into considered I think setting goals is more achievable than resolutions. And it doesn't sounds so dramatic!
So I only hope to achieve few things in the new year. 
I want to go back to work. Just so I can have some adult conversation and Egg man can spend time with children and other people. 
I want to loose a bit of flab. Hate to admired by my mother by saying that I got fat is actually right. I am rather cuddly . I also want to get as fitter as I can be because in the end of the year I want to start growing a new life:)
With regards of getting back into a real life and work I want to do something different so retraining is definitely something I looking to achieve in the new year. 
And the general serenity in life. All aspects of it. Just chill and be nice! It has been brought to my attention that I have been rather mean to people... I do hope I will be able to achieve this. 
So here we have it. I am giving in into this ba of a new me! But it is more of things j would like to do next year, not resolutions.
