Where has the time gone? It certainly does not feel like it's been 10 months since our little lady made her way into the world. It feels like she's been part of our lives for hardly any time at all yet I can't remember her not being here. I mean I remember life before baby,… Continue reading 10 months!
Mealtimes are a beautiful balance of fun, chaos an anxiety in this house. I'm pretty sure it's the same in most households. Parents are anxious about weather the kids are consuming enough and when they are it's a worry that it's enough of the good stuff. The kids like to sing you the song of… Continue reading Mealtimes
Inspiration lies everywhere. I know it's cheesy and such an over used statement but it's true. Recently I've found it during the most regular of activities. Inspiration for pictures has come to me whilst walking through IKEA. Inspiration for home decor has come to me during a family birthday dinner. It's about really taking in… Continue reading Inspiration
The past few days have been spent escaping most of the world and focusing on family time. We've made very few plans and politely asked people not to visit for a few days. Now don't get me wrong I love having people round, I love seeing family, but once in a while it's nice to… Continue reading Escaping
So as promised I'm taking time to do my first review of books for little ones. So I thought I'd start with a few of our favourite 'crabby night' stories. These are books we read when she's just a little too tired for a full story, but not tired enough to go straight to bed.… Continue reading Book books books!
Over time I've dabble in all means of 'hobbies' I tried learning to play the bass. (Turns out I didn't have the patience) I tried games - pc, console, board games. But once I've one/Compleats something once I lose interest (I also rage quit when I lose and never return - I don't like being… Continue reading Finding a hobby
Bedtime has become a game. A very long drawn out game. A game we only play on Sunday nights or Monday nights (when I'm really lucky it's both nights) What's so special about those two nights I hear you ask? These are the nights daddy works lates. The nights I'm flying solo. The nights he… Continue reading Bedtime … Just kidding
In our house we read ALOT. I maybe don't get the chance to read for myself all that often just now but I still get to read everyday. Long gone are the days I'd could read a new novel a week (I'm lucky to manage a short story in a week now) I've on many… Continue reading Books books books!
Ignoring the off nights (it's become a habit now) this week has been wonderful. We've had lots of family time, both just us three amigos and immediate family. We've done LOTS of stuff and yet it's been equally balanced with rest time. Sometimes it's the most basic of activities that you appreciate and enjoy the… Continue reading A good week
The one thing I think we can all agree upon wanting from life is happiness. No matter what else we might all dream of, it's not really worth it if we aren't happy. This is why I do my best to surround myself with positivity. Don't get me wrong, it's bloody hard at times. But… Continue reading Happiness
