Saturday Share #125

I haven't posted a Saturday Share for a couple of weeks as the blogosphere was a wee bit quiet with all the festivities. Now everyone's back with their Christmas highlights and 2018 goals and there's so much awesome! Here's a look at my favourite blog posts from the last couple of weeks. If you're sick… Continue reading Saturday Share #125

Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

Not gonna lie, it's been a rough week. I've spent the last nine days battling a cold with a cough so bad it's actually made me vomit. Fortunately the doctor has reassured me it will soon pass and shouldn't delay my surgery but it's been hard going. All three of us are poorly and sharing… Continue reading Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

A post-Christmas book haul

You can never have too many books, although I do need to spend some time reorganising my bookshelves before I go back to work next week. Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul

Jenson: 31 months old

I think this past month may have been my favourite so far in my life as "Jenson's Mummy". He's getting on so well at nursery, he really enjoyed this Christmas, his relationship with his older cousin is growing and he's learning so much. We had a mini review from nursery and I was so freaking… Continue reading Jenson: 31 months old

My life in photos: December 2018 #LikedandLoved

Not only is it the start of a new month but also a new year. I've gotta say, I love these monthly round-ups and joining in with Stevie's linky. It's nice having a chance to reflect on what I've loved over the past month. I started the month mourning the loss of my youth, having… Continue reading My life in photos: December 2018 #LikedandLoved

2018 goals - Get Your Shit Together

My goals for 2018

A couple of weeks ago I reflected on the goals I set for 2017 and, while I had a good stab at some of them, there are some I want to carry forward into the new year. I realised that these are the things I want to consistently do more of: 1. Make more time… Continue reading My goals for 2018

Christmas, Self-Care and Trolls #LittleLoves

It wouldn't be the first post-Christmas Little Loves without a little Christmas round-up now, would it? Check out my Christmas in photos post from earlier in the week if you're a sucker for photos of cute kids and 'what I got for Christmas' posts. Of course, the week hasn't been all about Christmas. Here's a… Continue reading Christmas, Self-Care and Trolls #LittleLoves

Tried and tested: Make It Happen productivity tracker from Got 2 Jot

I often complain that there aren't enough hours in the day. With so many areas of my life competing for attention, it doesn't take much for one area to feel neglected and then all hell breaks loose. I'm an anal planner. I have diaries packed with meetings and hastily scrawled to do lists and I… Continue reading Tried and tested: Make It Happen productivity tracker from Got 2 Jot

Christmas 2017 in photos

And, just like that, Christmas is over for another year. Well, I'm still celebrating for another week and a half as I don't go back to work until the eighth but, as far as Jenson is concerned, Christmas is over as he's opened all of his presents! During the festive period we've decorated trees, met… Continue reading Christmas 2017 in photos

Learning to feel good enough with The School of Life

I think it's safe to say most of us have lacked self-confidence at some point or felt not good enough. We might have suffered with mum guilt or Imposter Syndrome. Or maybe all of the above. And while I think it's great to take action, set goals and make moves towards self-improvement at any point… Continue reading Learning to feel good enough with The School of Life
