🩷 My beautiful family…

I love this photo, it’s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, it’s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

I have officially completed the academic part of my 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲. I have to now wait until mid July to get results. I’ve never been so nervous. But I’m glad it’s done. I nearly gave up about 20 times over the last 5 months when we lost the pups 🐾 , but I kept going… ⁣
⁣
So, I’ve now got half term to relax and enjoy some well earned time with my 𝘧𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘢𝘮. Goodness knows the hours I’ve lost spending time studying over the last 3 years. 𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝗜 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱𝗻’𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁 & I’m looking forward to sunny adventures this Summer.⁣

This photo was from our trip to 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗲. It’s a lovely memory of a happy holiday. I’m hoping we’ll make lots of new memories and big smiles over the coming weeks.⁣

Very proud of my little man cub today… whose not so little anymore. He had 2 adult teeth extracted this morning, in preparation for a fixed brace fitting.

I knew what was coming to a certain extent but poor Noah didn’t. Thankfully the dentist knew the right tricks, he asked Noah to close his eyes so Noah couldn’t see the ghastly needle. 😱 Mummy on the other hand nearly passed out!

Then watching the dentist do a tug of war with 2 of Noah’s teeth was horrifying too. The force to pull out a tooth is quite considerable. I hadn’t really thought about it before. But the crunching sounds were 🤢. 

He didn’t faint, albeit he nearly did and he hardly complained at all throughout the day. He is super brave and made me very proud.

It’s horrible seeing your babies in pain. The worst part is Noah has to have 2 more teeth removed in a few weeks & he’ll know what is going to happen.😱

Noah said he’s going to be poorly on that day! Haha!

A not so nice story but I tried to make it less gory for those that hate dentist or are just squeamish.

5 Thoughtful birthday gift ideas for Dad

Moissanite – Easy on the eyes and the conscience

You may have never heard of moissanite, but it has been around for over 120 years, having been discovered in a meteor crater in the late 1800s. Due to its unique characteristics, it is rare to find in nature, but scientists have managed to recreate the gemstone artificially using advanced scientific methods. The process has evolved over the years and with this, the quality of the stones. This makes moissanite a sparkling, spectacular and cost-efficient alternative to conventional diamonds. Moissanite rings boast a brilliance that rivals the most stunning of diamonds and can often score higher in the refractive index depending on the cut of the stone.
