A Tu Clothing wish list – 25% off!

You know you're a grown up when you get excited about 25% off clothing weeks at Sainsburys! It's especially well timed for the back to school shop. You'd think we don't have to worry about that for a couple of years but because Jenson is starting nursery in a few weeks I want to make… Continue reading A Tu Clothing wish list – 25% off!

Jenson: 26 months old

When people ask me how old Jenson is now I keep saying that he's just turned two, when in fact that was two months ago. Seriously, where is the time going?! Following last month's update we've been for his hearing test and had the follow-up with the Health Visitor. He slept all the way through… Continue reading Jenson: 26 months old

Flow magazine, hearing tests and Play-Doh! #LittleLoves

It's been a funny ol' week and felt very much 'business as usual' but still with little moments to treasure. Here are some of my highlights. Read: I bought Flow magazine for the first time a year or two ago and fell in love with it instantly - but £10 an issue is quite expensive… Continue reading Flow magazine, hearing tests and Play-Doh! #LittleLoves

Jenson: 25 months old

I don't want to be one of those parents who says 'my son is 25 months old' instead of 'my son is two' but it makes it easier for these monthly update posts. I'm not sure how long I'm going to keep them up for but when he's still changing month by month it makes… Continue reading Jenson: 25 months old

Summer bucket list 2017

Now that another half-term is behind us and summer is inching ever closer, I've got to thinking about things I want to do this summer in Cornwall - in particular fun and affordable things we can do as a family. Here's what I've come up with. 1. Visit the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Taking Jenson anywhere… Continue reading Summer bucket list 2017

Memories from Jenson’s second year

When I was pregnant I bought a 'one line a day' journal to record Jenson's first five years and I'm sharing some highlights on/near each birthday. You can catch up on his first year here. Below are some faves from his second year. 30 May 2016: Your first birthday was the perfect day - gorgeous… Continue reading Memories from Jenson’s second year

Self-Care Sunday #16

One of my highlights of the week is taking Jenson to his swimming lesson. Of course, it helps when we have time to stop for coffee and cake with our friends after, but I actually really love just being in the water with him. He's so happy and fearless, it's great to see, and it's… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #16

Birthday celebrations, summer footwear and awesome post #LittleLoves

I've had a hectic week off work as we've been celebrating Jenson's second birthday! I'm now officially the mother of a two year old. May the tantrums begin (continue...). But Jenson hasn't been the only one to receive some epic stuff over the last few days. Here's a look at our week. Read: As I've… Continue reading Birthday celebrations, summer footwear and awesome post #LittleLoves

Jenson: Two years old

Jenson turned two yesterday. Two! And he was an absolute angel. I don't know if I'm over-romanticizing it because I know that so many little kid things he does could be the last but I'm savouring the small things even more these days, like his bedtime bottles (yes, even though he's two!) and wanting to… Continue reading Jenson: Two years old

The ultimate Father’s Day gift

Find it hard to shop for your dad/grandad/partner for Father's Day? I've found the ultimate gift from Totally Funky*. I challenge you to find a single bloke who isn't into Star Wars, or at least appreciates the "I'm your father" line. It's particularly apt in our house - my partner is called Luke and he… Continue reading The ultimate Father’s Day gift
