Item of the day: Clock from Marks and Spencer

We're very nearly there with Jenson's room - I just want to get something else up on the wall before I take the photos for the nursery tour blog post. Anal or what?! I love this adventure time (not that Adventure Time!) clock from Marks and Spencer. It's £15.60 until the end of the day… Continue reading Item of the day: Clock from Marks and Spencer

Wish list: M&S kids

We're lucky that Jenson is now in that fun clothing age range where he can wear both baby and boys clothes. Baby clothes tend to go up to 24 months and most boys clothes start at a year old, so he can still wear the cute baby dungarees (which Luke hates but I love -… Continue reading Wish list: M&S kids

Item of the day: Penguin hottie from Marks and Spencer

I go to bed a good hour or two before Luke and I hate getting into a cold bed in the winter. In the summer I love cold sheets but when I've been sat in a nice, toasty office and get into an empty, freezing bed, it makes me all kinds of sad. I love… Continue reading Item of the day: Penguin hottie from Marks and Spencer

My life in photos: November 2015

It's only when looking back over my photos from the last month that I've realised that I've actually been pretty sociable. And Jenson has developed a helluva lot. Here are our months in photos. Up first, yours truly... 1. I bloody love where I live! How gorgeous is this walk? It's the view behind and… Continue reading My life in photos: November 2015

Oh em gee, it's only 39 more sleeps til Christmas! I don't usually like to start thinking about Christmas until after my birthday (11 more sleeps, FYI!) but I've slowly been picking up the odd present and thinking about where the Christmas tree is going to go in our new house - such a big… Continue reading Item of the day: Candy cane pen from Marks and Spencer

Jenson: Four months old

Yep, you read that title right. My little dribbler is now four months old - we're a third of the way to his first birthday! And now that I'm a smidge over halfway through my maternity leave I'm reminded that every day I get to spend with him is precious. It won't be long until… Continue reading Jenson: Four months old

Jenson’s Christmas list

That's right, I'm talking Christmas and it's only September. I've been thinking ahead for Jenson ever since I found out I was pregnant, buying clothes for different ages, pinning things we can do together when he's bigger and now I'm thinking about Christmas presents. My family tends to ask for Christmas lists (yes, even at… Continue reading Jenson’s Christmas list

Item of the day: Reversible jacket from M&S

I was in M&S the other day, browsing the baby section, as you do, and was shocked at how much of the sale stock was for girls rather than boys. A quick browse online revealed more of the same, at least in terms of items that made me want to part with my hard-earned cash,… Continue reading Item of the day: Reversible jacket from M&S
