6th June: Everything I did. Literally Everything

A day in the life of... How boring you may be thinking. Well whatever, someone said to me 'I don't know how you do it' so I thought I might as well post a typical day for us. However I don't really do typical days, I'm not good at routine but here was our Thursday. … Continue reading 6th June: Everything I did. Literally Everything

My oh my this baby is beautiful. Thanks Austhorpe Photography

We have had a few shoots with Austhorpe Photography from a pregnancy shoot to a Halloween shoot and a Mummy and Me shoot (which is my header on the home page). Emily has generally LOVED being the centre of attention and smiled like a little angel. So Claire at Austhorpe Photography in Garforth asked if … Continue reading My oh my this baby is beautiful.

23rd May: A disappointment of a cream tea

Thursdays are for Gingerbread meet ups in York but I like to make use of being there so have a little trip somewhere and either buy loads of charity stuff or take a million photos. Someone suggested I have a look around Acomb as there are a few charity shops, someone else suggested I take … Continue reading 23rd May: A disappointment of a cream tea

20th May: Lidl is the bomb

Making everything … Continue reading I ❤️ Babywearing

York Charity Shop Haul

Once again nothing for Emily. Bad mum. A few bits for me though. I couldn't try the jumper (above) on in the shop as I was both babywearing, breastfeeding and browsing all at once. However I did manage to try on four skirts whilst doing all those things so I felt like a brilliant multitasker. … Continue reading York Charity Shop Haul

2nd April: Biscuits in bed and double cake face

I know that breastfeeding does all sorts of amazing things for mum and baby, but seriously they should be focusing on the metabolic effects when they chat to expectant mums. Today I ate toast smothered in cream cheese for breakfast (I blame Emily), then headed out for my Daisy Foundation meet up where I had … Continue reading 2nd April: Biscuits in bed and double cake face

28th March #booblols at John Lewis

Not that I am a massive show off but I absolutely won Employee  of the Month before my maternity leave started. I was saving my £250 John Lewis vouchers for a special occasion and with all the joys of negotiating who keeps what as my husband packs up and leaves our family for good I … Continue reading 28th March #booblols at John Lewis
