LIFE: Taking a break…

YOU may remember that a while ago I spoke about the importance of slowing down and looking after ourselves more. Well folks recently I’ve been forgetting my own advice (stupid I know) and because of that, a few months on, I now feel like my mojo has done a bunk.

FRIDAY FIVE: What I’ve learnt about marriage (so far)…

TODAY the husband and I are celebrating five years of marriage and boy has it gone quickly! It doesn’t seem two minutes since our wedding day and yet over the past five years our lives have changed so much.

AT the grand ol’ age of 33, here’s what I’ve figured out about people so far when it comes to success. 1) People will often underestimate you… And that’s ok. Let them. For it is their mistake.

LIFE: Pom poms, balloons & cake!

I HAD a little blogging break on Monday as we spent all weekend celebrating Elsie’s first birthday and what can I say, but I was absolutely shattered! Instead of being a busy blogger, I had a day off and spent my time tucking into lots of leftover birthday cake and playing with Elsie and her many new toys. I know you’ll forgive me. Elsie’s first birthday really was just so

FRIDAY FIVE: A mini collection of my motherhood musings…

THIS time last year I was in labour so as you can imagine, I’m feeling ever so reflective today! As we make the final preparations for Elsie’s first birthday tomorrow, I’ve been thinking a lot about how far we’ve come as a family and how being pregnant now seems like such a long time ago.
