It’s been a few weeks since Mothering Sunday, and it’s taken me this long to get around to finally writing up our adventures! I’m usually very organised, I have lists for everything we need to remember, errands that need running and we have a weekly meal plan to make things easier, but I still find that … Continue reading Mother’s Day 2017…
I’ve got more than a few half finished posts that I should be focusing on right now. Finding the time and motivation has been so hard the last few months - little N has had one illness after another, I’ve struggled with a cough and cold and Mr A has been away when we’ve needed … Continue reading Our weekend…Bath half marathon
Last month we celebrated little N’s first birthday, and although it was only a few weeks ago, it already feels like a distant memory. The last few weeks have been a blur, little N has been really poorly and I’ve not had time to stop and capture the memories from his birthday, until now. I … Continue reading Little N’s first birthday
I know I’ve said it before, but this month little N and I are going it alone, just the two of us while Mr A is away with work. The few first days have been tricky and the first night was a total disaster, but we’ve surviving. We’ve already ticked five nights off our countdown … Continue reading Our first few days without Mr A…
It’s nearly the end of our first night and I’m sat here in shock, surrounded by the chaos of our afternoon and first night without Mr A to lend a hand. There's building bricks scattered across the floor, every book off the bookshelf on the floor and several plates of different dinner choices, that were all rejected in turn, piled up in the kitchen.
For the first time since little N arrived I feel like we’ve had the perfect mama and son week. I’ve finally figured out how to juggle life as a mama, housewife and dog owner. Relief. We’ve had an amazing week, packed full of mama and son time, without too many tears and frustrations along the … Continue reading What a week: confident mama
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them - ‘For the Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon Today is Remembrance Sunday, and marks Armistice Day, the anniversary of … Continue reading Remembrance Sunday…why it’s important to me
When I launched my blog I'd hoped to post regularly, well maybe not regularly, but at least once a week - that seems manageable right? But I'm just a few weeks in and I've already failed. I've got several posts bouncing around my head, ideas drafted on my laptop and notes scribbled on my phone, … Continue reading There’s just never enough time…
It’s been a week since we landed back at home. Where has the time gone? It’s been a blur of laundry, sleepless nights and yes, more lists. But before the post-holiday blues really set in I wanted to capture one or two of the moments and adventures we had while were away. Despite the sleepless … Continue reading Take me back to Mexico!
I promised you a lot of lists in my first blog...and I don’t want to disappoint. We’ve just got back from our first family holiday abroad – and we braved a long haul flight to Mexico, crazy right? To give you some ideas and to help you get started with what to pack for a … Continue reading We’re home! Our trip to Mexico 2016
