It’s the end of February – we’ll actually it’s the beginning of March as I’m writing this – I forgot to take some family photos in February, but luckily Mother Nature sent along some snow and we managed to grab these! February for me was the month of illness – mainly for me. I thought I’d done well getting this far without hardly even a sniffle but I then ended up with a tummy bug and then a cold and cough which made me ache all over. Because of this, February felt like it was so battening down the hatches…

For the first time ever I’m not going to say how quickly January flew by – I swear it has lasted about 8 weeks! I was so gutted that I missed the December Me & Mine Project, we were just too busy enjoying Christmas and spending time together that we literally took no family photos at all. January is always a funny old month for our family – it is the run up to the anniversary of losing Sophie, and this year will mark 6 years. That alongside the Christmas decorations being gone, makes January a long, cold, grey month…

This month has sort of flown by but when you are waiting for something exciting (CHRISTMAS!) it’s also kind of dragged. It’s been a good month, busy as always. As I’ve said before life seems to just be busy now, I think I just need to work out how to handle it better.

Annoyingly although the event was amazing, I ended…

I’m rushing to write this months Me & Mine Project, amongst tidying the house and putting up more Halloween decorations. All of a sudden the nights have got darker, and we are nearly in the realms of Christmas prep season (November). October has, like every month before it, absolutely flown by in a blur of our holiday to Wales, school and homework, and half term. Every month I say, this month is going to be busy but next month is quieter, and then by the time the next month has come around the calendar is full again. I think I’m…

I always say that I can’t believe it is the last day of the month. This month I actually can. September has been packed full of new challenges and life experiences for us as a family. It’s either been snails pace this month or full throttle. The month kicked off with my 28th (ahem 31st) birthday, which was a quiet one, through my own choice. The same day Ollie started school. My little Rainbow baby was big enough to start school?! Where we live, school starters do two weeks of half days and then start full time. Those two weeks…
