This week Izzie and Ollie went back to school and preschool after half term (side note: I cannot believe it is Ollie’s last term at preschool!). I am a stay at home / work at home mum and I find it so hard to get organised – really, hats off to working mums, you actually deserve a medal – or at least a lot of wine/gin. Our morning routine is hectic, and loud and mad – we have to be out the door by 8.15am as Ollie’s preschool is in the next village along from Izzie’s school, and long story…

Firstly thankyou to the lovely Hayley at Land of Lawson for the tag. Writing this was therapeutic for me this week. I’ve not been having the best week with the kids for various reasons, and if I’ve said outloud that I think I’m failing once, I’ve said it three or four times. I did find writing this hard – if I’m honest I’m very critical of my own parenting, and often feel the ‘mum guilt’ because I don’t feel like I’m getting it right. As mums we need to build each other up, and not tear each other down –…

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will notice it has been a bit quiet here recently aside from pre scheduled posts that I do weekly. This week I haven’t even written those. The Easter holidays have well and truly broken me. I am feeling so many things right now. I feel guilty as I was looking forward to the holidays so much – I envisioned relaxed mornings, playing outside and spending time enjoying being together. I should’ve known it wouldn’t work out like that. In reality it has been earlier wake ups that we have on…

At the moment I am LOVING youtube – I’ve got so into it, despite never even opening iMovie or editing anything before October 2016. I enjoy filming and editing but sometimes its hard to work out what content to upload- my primary aim when starting my channel was to vlog to capture our family memories, but in reality, our lives day to day are pretty standard, and not too exciting. I was so excited when Katy and Collette announced Vlog Stars – and I’m excited to be linking up each month. I’m a bit behind as I missed last month…

I was looking back through the photos on my phone the other day – like a lot of other bloggers probably do, I must take hundreds in a month on my iPhone alone. I found myself looking through the photos I took when Mason was a newborn. I love photos of my babies as newborns, especially the ones I’m in, even if they are only selfies. You can see my tired eyes and lack of makeup, but also the pride, and  total love and adoration in my eyes for this tiny human. The plan was always three children – well…
