Jenson’s third birthday party with Jump with Jo

We nearly ended up cancelling Jenson's birthday party with hours to spare this year due to a slapped cheek false alarm. Fortunately we were able to go ahead and Jenson had a great time. We booked Jump with Jo*, a local business offering soft play sessions and parties and invited a few of Jenson's friends.… Continue reading Jenson’s third birthday party with Jump with Jo

From pregnancy news (no, not mine!) to Cornwall in the summer, here's a round-up of the blog posts I've loved this week. I can't even tell you how I excited I was when Jemma revealed her big news.

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

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

For those of you who like photos of cocktails and stationery, here's a look at how I spent… Continue reading How I spent my 30th birthday

This weekend sees the return of Etsy Made Local… Continue reading Etsy Made Local St Ives 2017
