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

Friday Favourites #33

This week has very much been about appreciating the little things. With the weather too cold and meh to go out and do anything fun, we've spent a lot of time watching (and re-watching) Frozen. Here's this week's highlights. 1. Jenson being cute AF. I know I think he's super cute 99.9% of the time… Continue reading Friday Favourites #33

Jenson’s first book review with Macmillan and Campbell Books

Everyone might say that Jenson looks just like his dad but he definitely takes after me when it comes to our love of books. He's such a bookworm and his collection already rivals mine. I love that he'll sit in his book corner and flip through them on his own or bring one over to… Continue reading Jenson’s first book review with Macmillan and Campbell Books

Jenson: 20 months old

In a few short months Jenson will be two years old. We're almost at the point in the year when all of the little 'uns have their birthdays, as they were all born within a few months of each other. It's crazy to think that those tiny babies are now walking and talking little people.… Continue reading Jenson: 20 months old

Jenson: 19 months old

I know I'm biased but we really do have the best kid. He's loving, intelligent, thoughtful, imaginative... Sure, he has the odd paddy but it's generally when he has to leave the park or if you're eating something and he isn't. Over the last month he really has blossomed and it's been amazing to have… Continue reading Jenson: 19 months old
