This time last year I was 37 weeks pregnant and just starting my maternity leave. I had really swollen feet due to the heat and felt the size of a whale! I had no idea just how much my life was about to change. No one can prepare you for becoming a mother, you can read all the books, attend all the classes but in the end it’s all down to you and it happens fast. I spent a huge amount of time worrying about what sort of mother I would be. I was convinced I would be terrible. As…

I hope everyone has had a lovely week. This week Clem went for her 9-12 month check up with the health visitor. She is doing great and I finally got her measured. Turns out I have a little giant, she’s in the 91st percentile for length measuring 74.5cm. No wonder I’m finding all her trousers are too short at the moment! Both outfits this week are quite relaxed, perfect for when we don’t really have plans apart from going to the park or playing in the house. The top is from the boys section at H&M and the jeans are…

We recently booked a holiday and so the first thing I did was obviously go clothes shopping. I didn’t intend to buy Clem any more clothes that are under size 12 months as she will probably outgrow most of them soon, but I saw this dress and just had to get it. I love strawberries, I wish I could wear this dress. It’s really light, so great for the sunny weather we have been having. It’s from H&M (again!) I cannot get enough of the stuff they have in at the moment so I also picked up a few bits…

Wanderlust noun a strong desire to travel. “a man consumed by wanderlust” Like most people we like to go on holiday.

Recently I received some money (not a lot but enough) that I wasn’t expecting, I immediately began dreaming of blue sea, sandy beaches and sun. In my head I knew that we should be sensible with it, either putting it into savings or using it…

A few weeks ago I discovered the wonderous thing that is baby friendly cinema screenings. I don’t know why it took me quite so long to go as I blooming love the cinema. But after almost a year of not going and having to wait for films to be released on dvd I decided to brave it. My local odeon does a thing called ‘Newbies‘ for certain films, and the week I happened to look into going they were showing Pitch Perfect 2. I loved the first one, and Clem likes music/singing so I thought it would be a good…
