VLOG: Day in the Life – London, Passports & Mumnesia

Recently Emma and I headed up to London to sort out her British passport, which was a little less than a triumph. I have realised that I still have Mumnesia. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s when you become a Mum and your head is so full of things you have to do that you forget really basic and important stuff. I definitely had this earlier in the year but as the sleep deprivation has been easing off ever so slightly, I thought it had disappeared. Maybe not.

I’ve been debating about doing one of these videos for a while now…I personally love watching them as I am so nosey and wasn’t sure if it would be interesting at all. I do hope you enjoy it and I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below! Also a huge thank you to all your comments so far on my vlogs, if you’d like to subscribe to my channel – I would be so grateful!

    I am so sorry you have to go back… It’s always like that don’t worry! There are so many things to think about, so you have to forget something! Why didn’t you do it online? I remember applying for Baba’s passport on the website, sending all the stuff and we received it in the post? Now with Brexit, I am going to have to get him a French passport too. Dreading it as I need to go to the consulate… That’s why it hasn’t happened yet! #FabFridayPost #PoCoLo

      Thanks lovely! Ah I wish I had been more organised and done it online but we are going on holiday very soon so didn’t want to risk it. I think we’ll get an Irish passport for Emma too soon. Thanks for watching xx

    This comment comes courtesy of Mouse, as we watched it together and she had strong views:

    “Who’s that? Why is lady in bed? Why has she got glasses on? Why has she got raisins? Where’s the little girl? What’s lady got in her cup? Why is little girl asleep? Where does the train go? Why has that little girl got a necklace? Where’s lady gone? Has the little girl found her shoe? Why is lady sad? Who’s that man behind lady? Where has little girl gone? Can we watch it again?”

    Not even kidding. I (we) loved this! major d’oh moment of course but it looked like Emma loved the adventure and you coped very well πŸ˜‰ I could watch your vlogs all day xxx #tribe #picknmix #fabfridaypost

    So sorry you have to go back again, it’s a long way to have to go twice. I always forget things lately. I’ve actually bought a small notebook that fits in the pocket in my handbag and as soon as I think of anything I write it down, I’m so bad! Hope you get it all sorted. At least Emma was great and enjoyed it, so that’s positive! #picknmix

    This reminds me that I need to renew my son’s passport as he is still a baby the old one and he is 6 now! And yes I still have mumnesia haha. So many times its my son who will remind me of things that needs finishing or buying! 6 years on to motherhood and I still have it! #pocolo

    This is such a lovely vdo. Well done Emma for being so good! I also had something similar to this. I ended up doing it by post and it was less stress and really fast too. It only took about 2 and half weeks to arrived – which was rather surprising. I know mumnesia sucks big time. I love you vog though. I think I’d like to do one for myself too. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost

    Gutted you have to go back. Such a pain, hope it all gets sorted real soon. You have totally reminded me that there are at least two passports in my household that need renewing! Well done for doing the blogging thing Thanks for linking up #FabFridayPost

    Oh no, that is exactly the sort of thing I would do! I hope you have managed to get it now, brilliant video though. You are so confident in front of the camera now πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix lovely
