Reflections on a birth

L is 3 months old and this mark of a quarter of a way through her first year has prompted me to look back on our labour and her birth.

The Week That Was Instagrammed: week 7


We traveled down to Suffolk to start our holiday! We had a very full car. Two cats in a carrier, husband driving, baby in car seat and mummy squished in the back!

Blogs blogs everywhere

During my blog writing break I took the time to read lots of different blogs. It is one of the reasons I love blog hops. I try to read two new blogs every time I share my own link.

The car is packed. 
The cats shipped off to the cattery.
The suitcases are bulging.

Blue Times

Getting Married

Having a Baby

Buying a House

The top three most stressful things you can do apparently. Foolishly maybe me and J have done all 3 in 13 months. It has been incredible and I feel so blessed to be in the position to do it all but it is now taking its toll.

Mirror mirror on the playmat!

I brought a mirror for L's playmat after noticing her interest in the mirrors on other toys. And boy does she love looking in it! She also enjoys copying facial movements and chatting to mum, dad or people she meets while we are out.

Get Fit Mummy: week 1

So. Me and exercise have never been best of friends. I am zero competitive and  don't particularly like being hot and sweaty.

Not just a baby


When J and I got married last August we saw it as the start of a new family. And we wanted to add our own addition to this family some one who was part of each of us combined. So we needed a baby!

New Mum Makeover

I have been tweeting and pinning lots recently about my New Mum Makeover. In the three months since having L I feel like my style is changing. I am adjusting to my new body shape and am wanting to experiment with other new looks and styles to suit this new me.

In Celebration of Cloth

We are back in cloth! After two weeks in disposables after our Rotavirus drops (a live vaccine which can cause diarrhoea from contact with babies poo) and the cloth is back on my baby! Hip hip hurray.

Start of Term ... Or not

For the past 4 years my Septembers have been about school. Starting school, either as a student or a teacher, filled not only September but most of August. The stationary buying, the file sorting, the uniform buying and the homework.

Magic Moments Yet to Come

Last week during the blog hop I read a blog about wishing on stars. It got me thinking about all the things we have yet to show L and all the things which will be her firsts. First fireworks, first Christmas, first foods and first laughs.

The Week That Was Instagrammed: Week 5

I have had an up and down week so have gathered some of my favourite photos from the week to remind myself how much L makes me smile and the support around me helping me be the best mummy to L that I can be.
