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

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

The Magic of Christmas

I'm guilty of posting a highlights reel a lot of the time when it comes to life with Jenson. Although I've discussed the reality of miscarriage, life with a newborn, colic and c-section recovery, most of the photos you see focus on the good times rather than the tantrums that occur seconds before or after… Continue reading The Magic of Christmas

Self-Care Sunday #37

Self-care can be hard during the festive period. You're so bogged down with trying to finish work before the office closes for the holidays and ensuring that everyone else has a good time that it can be easy to forget to look after yourself. Plus, with the added pressure of gift giving and feeling the… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #37

It's been a super-festive week, with biscuit decorating, visiting Santa, two Christmas dinners (with two more to go) and finally putting the tree up. I'm definitely feeling more excited than I have done the last couple of years. Here's a look at what we've been up to over the last week. Read: This week I've… Continue reading Rebel Girls, holidays are coming and winter woolies #LittleLoves

Festive fun at Trevena Cross

I've been feeling all kinds of festive this year. As I've grown up, Christmas has lost some of that childish magic but now that Jenson is a bit older (it's his third Christmas), I've started to recapture some of that youthful wonder and excitement. Yesterday we went to Trevena Cross with my brother, his girlfriend… Continue reading Festive fun at Trevena Cross

Blogosphere, Man Down and Christmas crafts #LittleLoves

I don't know what it is about growing up but it's really easy for Christmas to lose it's magic. Until you have children, that is. I felt all kinds of festive on Sunday when I watched my son and nephew decorating the tree at my mum's house. They're two and a half and three and… Continue reading Blogosphere, Man Down and Christmas crafts #LittleLoves
