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

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

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

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

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

Jenson: 21 months old

21 months! After going to our first second birthday party recently it's becoming all too clear that we'll be planning our own second birthday party soon. Eek! As Jenson gets closer to that milestone I'm becoming more aware that he's not a baby anymore - and hasn't been for some time. His vocabulary is growing… Continue reading Jenson: 21 months old

My life in photos: February 2017

Seriously, how is it already March? It feels like it was just Christmas! But at least it means spring is on the way - plenty of opportunities for fun days in the park and on the beach with the boys. Here's a look back at a cold and stormy February. 1. Presents from Dom (check… Continue reading My life in photos: February 2017

Self-Care Sunday #3

My top tip this week is to remember to have fun! It's too easy to get lost in your own thoughts, worrying about things beyond your control or obsessing over everything that needs to get done. I'm reminded of that famous quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #3

Friday Favourites #34

I make a note of things I want to include in my Friday Favourites post throughout the week and for the first time in a while I came up with way more than five. Some weren't especially time-sensitive, so I've carried them over to next week's post, but it's nice to have some many little… Continue reading Friday Favourites #34
