Happy December… I cannot believe its come around so quickly! I’m very excited about Christmas, I cannot wait to get my tree up this weekend.
Do you have a special Christmas tradition in your family over the festive period or something that you always do and have always done. AO.com challenged me to think about ours recently, it got me all excited for Christmas. Friends of ours all have their “ways” of celebrating Christmas and some of them are so different from ours. It’s amazing how many different things people do for Christmas. We have a few little traditions that go on in our family and if you are just starting out on your journey of parenthood they might come in handy…
We took a trip across to Norfolk on Sunday to visit some friends who had just moved house to a lovely, remote, location. The village was lovely and we made the most of the weather to get some fresh air at the park. The children had fun playing with some friends and so did Daddy! The weather is really starting to turn frosty, time to wrap up nice and snuggled.
As you may have read we went away to West Yorkshire the other weekend with a group of friends. It was a fabulous weekend break full of outdoor fun and indoor fun too. What’s better than crafting with the little ones, listening to the log fire cracking in the background and drinking a nice warm cuppa. The children spent a good couple of hours decorating their Christmas tree ornaments and colouring in their window decorations. They loved it.
The short answer to this is, yes. You have created a person. It has exited your body. You can do anything! The long answer is still yes, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work, organization, and a great support network. Here’s some great ways to make getting your masters as a mum a realistic goal.
We had a blast today, we took a trip to Norfolk to visit friends who we havent seen for some time and we got to see their lovely new house and happy faces. Isn’t it amazing how quickly children grow up? Last time I saw their little faces they were babies and toddlers. It’s crazy. We had lots of fun with the selfie setting too!
We had a nice chilled Saturday which started off with a trip to see Great Grandma, at Isla’s request. Then lunch at Prezzo which was very yummy, followed by a snoozey afternoon (much needed) and an evening of takeaway and silly conversations with friends. It was nice.
I love my new Cath Kidston glasses, I just want to work so I can wear them. Does that sound sad? It’s amazing how a new frame can change your face. I only wear them at the computer or if I have a head ache but I want to wear them all of the time! Thanks SpecSavers!
If you have ever tried to enlist the services of a Sydney plumber when the weather is bad you will know that it’s not always the easiest task. Inclement weather tends to bring about more than its fair share of bursts and blockages which can adversely affect the plumbing of any home. This means that it can be difficult to find a plumber who is available to help.
The kids had a mad moment in the bath tonight, silly faces and lots of splashing! I like it when they have happy moments, unlike the crazy moments they often have where they splash everything in the bathroom purposefully. Isla’s face looks like something I would do in this shot.
I recently received a lovely Coney sweater from Lighthouse, everything about it is just spot on. The style is great, it goes well with Jeans and wellies, or boots. The colours are great. I love the white and watermelon stripes. I love the floral inner lining too, its very pretty. It’s a great top for autumn/winter and would also make for a great Christmas gift!
This week is road safety week, 21st to 27th November, and Kiddicare asked me to think about what that means to me. It made me think back to when I had my car accident: two years ago now. Luckily the children were not in the car, but did you know that you still have to replace the car seats? Recently the child booster seat law changed indicating that booster seats are now not as safe. This meant when I replaced the car seats I was able to get the right seats and keep the children safe!
We had a lovely weekend, courtesy of our friends, who paid for us all to go to West Yorkshire and spend the weekend together. We had a lovely weekend in the snowy hills of Slaithwaite and the fact it was snowing made the break away extra special. Albeit cold. The barn was absolutely perfect, lots of space and stunning. We had an amazing time out and about, but also inside the barn too.
