The Happy Newspaper, She & Him and embracing our creative/messy side #LittleLoves

It's been a funny ol' week - the best laid plans and all that... Here's a look at what we've been up to. Read: The Happy Newspaper. *Sigh* I swoon over this every time it drops through my letterbox but I swear the current issue is the best to date. Gabrielle Treanor is my favourite… Continue reading The Happy Newspaper, She & Him and embracing our creative/messy side #LittleLoves

Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

Taking nearly three weeks off work over Christmas made Monday morning such a shock to the system. My alarm went off at 6.30am and I so wasn't ready. And I didn't half miss Jenson. I hate only seeing him for an hour before bed but it made yesterday even more special - even when he… Continue reading Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

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

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

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

Jenson: 30 months old

How have we reached Jenson's half birthday already? We don't actually celebrate these but when I come to write these posts I can't help but feel like we just had his birthday and six months have flown by again. I have been so freaking proud of Jenson this month. Our nursery uses an app to… Continue reading Jenson: 30 months old

Wild, Jack Whitehall and birthday plans #LittleLoves

I've felt really busy this week, with just three working weeks remaining until Christmas and trying to get ahead of myself with some scheduled posts so I can take a blog break over my birthday weekend. I might even have a mini digital detox. But then how will people know what I've done if it's… Continue reading Wild, Jack Whitehall and birthday plans #LittleLoves

Jenson’s Christmas list 2017

Wondering what to buy a two-year-old for Christmas? These days, Peppa Pig and Twirlywoos are the favourites in our house. When you're shopping for little ones it's got to be books and toys, right? We finished shopping for Jenson a while back and his presents pretty much consist of Peppa Pig, Duplo, books and a… Continue reading Jenson’s Christmas list 2017

Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The last week has been a bit of a game-changer for me. Going along to Outlaw 2017 and reading Sarah Knight's first and third books have really given me a kick up the ass to work on my side-hustle in 2018. I reckon her second book (have I asked Santa for enough yet?) really will… Continue reading Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves
