Parent Groups & Sports Day [Ordinary Days]


Emily has been attending a group on a Tuesday morning for quite some time now, it was actually a really big deal for me to take her, as I'm sure you know if your regular readers I really struggle with social situations, it sets off my anxiety and my PND so I have just tended to avoid baby/toddler groups. However, that seemed to change slightly when Isabelle was born. I didn't want to be that mum who was stuck indoors for fear of going out and to put it bluntly I was so lonely because I was at home most of the day by myself, with the girls and I didn't really have any mum friends. I never thought I ever would have mum friends. Now when I look back on it, I really regret not pushing myself to go sooner - Emily has made some absolutely lovely lifelong friends, some of which will go to the same school as her next year, and I think that I have made some mum friends too - although my social anxiety does make me doubt that quite a lot of the time.

Home Improvements


When we moved into our little flat almost four years ago now - how has it gone that fast? We had big plans, there were quite a few things on our list to fix, or replace, to do up or pull out, and I'm happy to say that we are slowly getting through that list. As much as living in a flat frustrated us both, especially when it comes to the girls and wanting to be able to play outside, I don't think we will move anytime soon. We are in the perfect area for the girls. It's lovely here, and the girls are so happy. We are close to the school Emily will go to, and everything we need is right on our doorstep. We are also quite lucky in the sense we are in between two great big greens, so the girls do have plenty of space to run around and play. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you the few things we are currently working on.

Opening Gifts & Birthday Cake


I have to admit that I am a little bit sad that the weekend is over, we had the loveliest weekend making memories as a family, and celebrating Isabelle's first birthday. We actually decided to do presents and everything on the Friday, because we decided to go out for the day on Saturday and it didn't seem fair for Isabelle to open her gifts and then not have a chance to play with them, I also knew that she wouldn't open every single one. After all, she is only one, I knew how tempting the one package she'd opened would be and knew full well that our little feisty bug wouldn't want to open anymore and I was completely right.

Happy 1st Birthday Isabelle!


Dearest Isabelle 

How is it possible you have been in our life for 52 weeks already, 365 whole days since we first met you, held you, and fell in love with you. I can’t believe you’ve been with us a whole year already, I was always warned that the first year goes fast, but I never imagined it would be this fast. I remember the first time we saw your perfect little face, you looked so cute and your skin was absolutely flawless. I remember thinking you looked just like your big sister and thanking my stars that I was lucky enough to have another beautiful, healthy baby girl. I still can’t believe I’m a mama of two and feel incredibly lucky to have you in my life. 

Isabelle's Cake Smash


Isabelle's first birthday is coming up really fast. When Emily's first birthday was approaching I knew that I wanted to do a cake smash for her. Simply because I thought that it was a nice way to capture some memories and it will be nice to look back on. I decided to do a cake smash with Isabelle as I absolutely adore my pictures of Emily.

Summer Bucket List [2018]


As always, every year I put together a bucket list of things that we want to do over the summer months, and this year is no different. I thought that I would share our summer bucket list with you in case you wanted or needed some ideas of things to do over the summer period. Sadly there is no ballet or preschool during the summer holidays so I will be trying to find as many things as I can to do with the girls.
