When I Grow Up

Do you ever feel like your life has no real purpose? I’ve always struggled to figure out what my true calling is. I remember when I was in school I had grand ideas of doing travel and tourist at college after shamelessly watching far too many episodes of ‘Ibiza Uncovered’ thinking that was the life…

If Only We Could Stop Time

Hello my old friend, sorry its been a while. I don’t know about you but lately i feel like the days, weeks and months are just passing by in a flash. We’ve had so much going on over here that I haven’t blogged as much as I’d hoped to. How can we be in the midst…

My Most Embarrassing Moments As A Mother

As far as life’s most embarrassing moments go, there are about a zillion different moments between kids and their parents. Those wonderfully unfiltered little angels can instantly make you want the ground to swallow you up in a second and equally during those hazey new mum moments we too do things that question our very…

Spring Outings – Glendurgan Gardens

With the start of spring well underway, my newsfeed is awash with beautiful picture’s of magnolias, tulips and daffodils. It’s a shame the weather is being a total shit. My heating and tumble drier havent seen so much use and my pockets have never been so empty! I love being outdoors with Ernest, especially now…

My Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Ernest was barely four weeks old on my first ever Mothers day. Those days seem somewhat of a blur especially as he wasn’t at his best. I was tired, emotional and dealing with a child who at the time hadn’t been diagnosed with Silent Reflux. So actually I think I would have welcomed something special but…

My Happiness List

I get told often that I’m different since I became a mother. Sometimes I never really know how to take this. Was i that much of an angry unapproachable bitch before? I guess you never really think about yourself in such a way unless, yes you are feeling like an angry hormonal bitch. At the…

Me Time

‘Me time’ was really not an issue before motherhood kicked in. I had so much of it that my life was one leisurely stroll. There was absolutely no sense of urgency whatsoever and my walking pace was slow and steady rather than constantly chasing my ass. Shitting, showering and eating now seem like a thing…

Ernest Turns One

If you’d ask anyone that truly knows me, they will tell you that I love planning things. Even before having a baby I would plan my ‘out out’ outfit weeks in advance. There was nothing better than putting on brand new clothes for me. I instantly felt more confident, now I’m lucky to enjoy fresh bedding…

A Year Of You

I have had the pleasure of knowing you for a total of 365 days and today you will wake up as a one year old. The thought of this fills me with so many different emotions. On one hand I’m sad that you are no longer that tiny little baby I once nurtured and held…

On The Move

Its really been a long time coming and something that i’d almost wished for initially. Partly because I didn’t want Ernest to be one of those kids that takes ages to do things and partly for selfish reasons. If he crawled or walked it meant that I didn’t have to lump him around everywhere. The…

My Haven’t You Grown – 23.01.17

So here we are again. One month down. Since the last update we’ve entered a new year which is just mad. It scares me how much you’re developing at the moment. Every day seems to bring a new trick or trait. Gone are the days where you would sit for five minutes and watch a bit…

‘Parents Gone Wild’ – Our 24hrs in London

As I sit here amongst the utter chaos that is a delay in Gatwick, I’m sitting here without a care. We may be delayed and i may not get to see my baby for a few hours but I feel relaxed and happy. The last week or so have been tough with another Christmas without…
