It was so cold, rainy and windy, today – after a mild start to the season, full of warm sunshine, I think it’s fair to say that winter has certainly arrived now! It’s all duck down duvets, thick socks, and our heaviest dressing gowns!
Beau, Georgie, and I didn’t bother to get out of our PJs or leave the house all day. It’s been bliss! Continue reading
Georgie turned 9 months old last week and, as with Beau (and all the other #9monthsin #9monthsout tags on social media!), we took some 9 month photos to celebrate the milestone. Continue reading
Yesterday Beau’s preschool teachers checked to see if I was getting their emails, because I’d been asked to send Beau to preschool in his gumboots but he had arrived in trainers. Continue reading
When I first started blogging (pregnant with my first baby), I had no real plan or intention… some days I still don’t think I do… I want this blog to be authentic and in the moment, a snapshot of where we are at in life. Continue reading

To be honest, though – I still haven’t found the best words. It has been such a wonderful journey so far – a natural and easy transition for him, and for us – but oh my goodness my emotions. I’ve been all over the place and back again. Continue reading
Someday I will look back on these videos and laugh, affectionately, at my novice videography skills. I’ll be grateful I made them, though… because it was a start. And we’ve all got to start somewhere.
I’m not sure how frequently I will make videos of A Day in the Life – but this is the first. Just a typical Monday with a baby and a preschooler. I did manage to put my feet up for a few minutes in the afternoon… if you look closely, you might just see it!
