  1. You feel that 8am is a luxurious lie in.
  2. You realise you've driven a whole journey by yourself and forgotten to change the children's CD.
  3. Your 'best top' is about 5 years old and you still refer to it as your 'best top'.
  4. You enjoy 'pegging out'.
  5. Your idea of a good night probably involves peace, quiet & a bath.
  6. You become a master at balancing towers of tupperware on the draining board.
  7. Your car bears a striking resemblance to a rubbish skip on wheels.
  8. You catch yourself saying things that your mum used to say to you.
  9. Your once plump sofa cushions have been replaced by an assortment of festering apple cores, biscuit crumbs and those really annoying plastic toys from the front of children's comics.
  10. You love it, you hate it, but wouldn't change any of it.

This post was written as part of the British Mummy Blogger's carnival with no other theme than to be fun and uplifting.  I chose to pull together a list of 10 things that I know make me look at myself and laugh and think how much my life has changed since being a mum.  The photo was taken last weekend on my birthday - cycling with the kids & my husband in the New Forest & sums up the happy day with the kids trying to push me down a slope into the stream!

Found you via a carnival, my entry was pretty similar to yours. Ican relate to all those you wrote, especially the 8am lie in! lol Mich x

Hi Michelle - one day our time will come - even though that long, luxurious lie in shimmers on the horizon like a mirage!

That made me chuckle, especially the sofa and the car!! Our sofa is both trampoline and a slide-rarr!!

Yes, it is a sad but true fact isn't it? Far too boring to sit on a sofa!

It was brilliant.  The cases are fab and the service couldn't have been better.  I love the Interlink delivery - next day and giving notice to within the hour of when they would arrive. 

Many thanks.

Wonderfully service . So quick and easy and the quality of the product was perfect. I'll be using the site again as I particularly like the fact that you are keep up to date with everything right up until the point of delivery. Have already recommended it to a number of people already. With thanks

Yes, all is great with the order.  The kids unpacked their cases straight away and have been wheeling them round the house full of teddy bears and shoes ever since!  They are thrilled with them and the quality looks great, so they'll be perfect for our up-coming first family holiday.
I don't think there's anything we'd have wanted you to do differently.
