The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #LittleLoves

How is my annual leave nearly over :( Fortunately I'm off again in a few weeks for Jenson's birthday and I feel like I've been productive with my time this week. I've been out in the sun, spent time with the family and caught up with friends. And we've got another birthday party tomorrow -… Continue reading The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #LittleLoves

Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

It's been another one of those weird weeks where the weather was gorgeous all weekend so I was able to frolic in the son with Jenson and then when my working 'week' started (sorry not sorry) I was in bed every night with Jenson with no evenings to myself. I find it easier to cope… Continue reading Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

Storytime at The Craft Box

I've blogged before about how much I love The Craft Box in Penzance (there's also one in Helston) but it needs another shout out thanks to recent additions. It's fun for all the family, a great place to make a personal gift and there's always tasty treats. Recently owner April has added a cute play… Continue reading Storytime at The Craft Box

Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

It's been another long and knackering week - three nights out of the last seven I've gone to bed with Jenson and not had an evening to myself (self-care anyone?) and there's so much I want to get done. I felt super-productive when I changed all the bedding yesterday though; you can't beat fresh sheets.… Continue reading Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

Book review: New releases from Nosy Crow

Jenson and I were sent the cutest book as an early Mother's Day present a couple of weeks ago.  I tell him I love him countless times a day and I'm looking forward to the day he says it back. How adorable is this cover? I love that it's about a mummy, daddy and baby… Continue reading Book review: New releases from Nosy Crow

My life in photos: March 2017

Spring is finally here! There have been the obligatory photos of daffodils and blossoms and a sense of being outdoors more, which is always awesome. This is when summer starts to arrive in Cornwall - I've been known to spend a day on the beach in February because as soon as the sun appears we… Continue reading My life in photos: March 2017

Simple daily self-care tips for new mums

As a first-time mum I can vouch for the fact nothing can prepare you for how hard motherhood is. That's not to say that I regret it for a single second but it's easy to lose touch with who you were pre-baby. When my maternity leave ended I went back to work part-time. On top… Continue reading Simple daily self-care tips for new mums

The Unmumsy Mum, painting rabbits and Blogosphere Awards #LittleLoves

This is going to sound incredibly British but what the eff has the weather been like this week?! Last weekend was gorgeous then this week it went to shit and I've been caught in hail storms. FYI, hailstones in your bra - not fun! But, as always, there's been plenty to love too. Read: I… Continue reading The Unmumsy Mum, painting rabbits and Blogosphere Awards #LittleLoves

Jenson being hilarious

Self-Care Sunday #7

It's true what they say, laughter is the best medicine. My favourite sound in the world is Jenson's laughter and I was creased up watching him the other day. He likes to 'hide' in my mum's conservatory and this week he realised that it's hilarious to press his nose and tongue up against the glass… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #7
