It has been an entire month now in our new home. Our first month, in a house- our house- not quite in the middle of the street, ... Continue reading →

It snowed! I moved permanently back to England in 2001 and I still get excited whenever the snow falls. I ran upstairs to look out the window overlooking the park, opened the window and watched those thick, fat flakes fall down. Everything sounds quieter and muffled when snow falls. So yes. Me, love the stuff. Cats, not so much.
Have spent the past week dealing with a tummy bug in this house! It was every bit as pleasant as you can imagine👌🏼
Fridays are our favourite (and only!) baby class where she ‘sang’ REALLY loudly and tried to pull the teacher’s glasses off. “She’s not shy is she?!” Definitely her father’s daughter.
P.S excellent wrist rolls Ava 👍🏼
I’ve been collecting children’s books since Ava was a bean in my belly. Current favourites are the Noisy books with flaps and the That’s Not My...collection of books! The children’s section in Waterstones has become a new go to whenever we’re in town 😍 I came across a book that I enjoyed when I was small, The Jolly Postman or Other People’s Letters- I loved opening all the envelopes inside the book and reading the postcards and notes for all the characters! Couldn’t believe it was still in print so I bought it- even though she won’t enjoy it for a couple more years. What were your favs as a child? Or must have children’s books?
Slightly vacant stare, messy bedhead, the little toes wiggling in the feet of her pyjamas...I love that small sliver of time when I’ve just picked her up from her crib and she’s still in sleepy mode. Before she gets too wiggly, before she realises she’s hungry for breakfast, before she starts singing loudly! I plonk her down in the Bumbo so I have that one minute to myself (for the rest of the day tbh) to brush my teeth, have a wee, and splash water on my face before her arms start waving at me to pick her “Up! Up!”
Baby- in bed. Husband-actually, not sure. In bed probably. Or gleefully creating little piles of mess. Me- stretched out in front of the telly, snuggling with the littlest pink nosed one. All was well.
I walk past here every time I walk into the town centre (so, most days!) I took the festive decorations (and tree) down on New Year’s Eve- I feel more organised and ready for a brand new year when everything is tidy and clear! Grinchy or Hinchy? 😆 right, back to solo parenting after two weeks of having Robin home! Wish us luck!
She didn’t know much about this Father Christmas business but this guy had a beard she was dying to pull, and then he gave her a present! Win, win!
