My first attempt at this…….we shall see how it goes! 🙂 I hope you enjoy!
Dear housework fairies,
I know it is a HUGE ask, but will you please please please come and clean my house for me? I have cobwebs on my cobwebs and my kitchen floor is quite frankly a health hazard. It is in the interest of my children’s safety that you visit immediately.
I will be forever grateful!
Lots of love

Dear Alfie my gorgeous and amazing son,
Please can you sleep in a little bit longer than 5 am. You see Mummy has to work, and in order to spend time with you and your sister in the day I am often burning the midnight oi l working till silly o’clock. So when you wake at 5am, I am exhausted and yes I admit very grumpy. If you could just go back to sleeping until 7 am (or possible a little later if it is not too much trouble) I would be very grateful!
Mummy love s you to the moon and back,
WHY WILL YOU NOT SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT????? Sorry didn’t mean to shout, but you have managed it since 16 months old, so why all of a sudden is it so hard to do? I know you have dropped your afternoon nap recently, and Mummy is putting you to bed a little earlier to compensate for that, but that does not mean you can be up and down all night to visit me and Daddy. As much as I love cuddling up with you, that bed is mine and Daddy’s and yours is in your room.
Really would appreciate it if you could stay there!!
Thanks ever so much baby girl!
Love you to the moon and back
I know things are a bit mad at the moment, I can’t remember the last time we actually had a proper conversation, and I really am sorry for this! Things are so hectic, 2 babies, you working silly hours and me trying fit in working around you and the kids leaves me NO time at all. I don’t mean to totally ignore you most evenings, but my head is so full of lists at the moment of things that need doing that most of the time I can’t remember my name let alone be able to hold an adult conversation. I will let you into a little secret – working with two babies is hard!!
Please know that I do love you more than anything and promise to make more of an effort not to grunt at you like a hormonal teenager and actually listen AND answer with a proper sentence when you talk to me.
All my love now and forever,
Dear Crazy list writing stressed out women (AKA me)
I know there is a lot going on at the moment, trying to juggle singing, working, blogging, and 2 babies. I know that you have a lot to organise with all three children’s birthdays coming up and Christmas to deal with (which of course HAS to be perfect and EVERYTHING must be home made, Nigella has nothing on you my love!) All of this of course is amongst the various family birthdays that are this time of year (why was EVERYONE born after September? That was NOT good planning). But please slow down a little bit. A stressed out you is not a good look and will make you age prematurely……(ok so I made that bit up but drastic measures are needed here). Please try to get a couple of early nights in each week, with Molly not sleeping and Alfie up at silly o’clock you really need it.
All my love
P.S I know you will not listen to a word I have just written but at least I tried!
P.P.S STOP writing the damned lists all the time……seeing how much you actually have to do stresses you out even more!! Will you not EVER learn?
