Being a mum is no easy task, and it’s not uncommon for new mums to quickly become stressed out and anxious. When you become a mum, you’re suddenly responsible for the health and happiness of another human being, which is a massive job and commitment to take on!
You may have seen on my social media accounts this morning, this is one of the many questions that my little Noah asked me when we turned on the news. The Manchester arena explosion at an Ariana Grande concert. Men, women and children hurt or worse. Not only did Daddy and I react, like every other family I suspect, in shock. So did Noah.

Recently when I have been getting “agitated” with the children’s behaviour: the squabbling, bickering and arguing over stupid things, it got me thinking about questioning them. For example the power of “why” is incredible, usually they give me sensible and thoughtful answers. Not childish answers, which surprised me a great deal. There are 5 magic words that will help you with this: why, where, what, when and how!
If your daughter is anything like little Isla, then a quiet spot in the house somewhere is the perfect place to sit and ponder. She creates these places and sits with her dolls reading stories or bushing their hair. It is really cute. She often sits and hides away being creative too, I want her to feel inspired to do this. Creating a little area for your child is a great way of giving them the okay to get busy with their imaginations.
Valentines Day, February 14th, is not far away. In actual fact, it is just around the corner. I am hoping that Hubby and I will be able to get away this year and see the sights of a wonderful new City, well new to us. We are currently thinking about York. Getting hubby the right gifts for Valentines Day can always be tricky, as he has everything, but House of Fraser was a great place to shop. In mind of our trip away, these are some of my ideas…
I adore the beach at Wells-Next-The-Sea, from the carpark with the new Joules hut to the miles and miles of sand. I do not think we have ever been there and had a bad experience, it’s great for the dogs and the children as there is just so much to do and so much space to explore too.
As some of you may have noticed, Saturday was my 34th birthday and Hubby got me a new “awesome” lens for my new Sony Alpha camera. I was so excited that I kind of forced us to go out for a nice walk. It did us good to get some fresh air but both Mummy and Daddy were not feeling very well, Isla was poorly on Friday and so it wasn’t the most magical of experiences. But, I did get some lovely photo’s with my new f1.8 lens. Yippee.
You are now past the nerve-wracking trimester of your pregnancy, hence planning for some fun and recreational activities won’t be a wrong move. The first-trimester, I can understand, how nauseatic it can be and getting down to plan something sportive might turn ugly for you. But the good news is, it’s over now and you are living the golden months of a woman’s life. So, pamper yourself as much as possible and bask in around.
