June Me & Mine June has flown by and we are nearly into July and the last few weeks of school. The last couple of weeks of preschool for Ollie before he starts school in September. I’m wishing the time away as I can’t wait for it to be the summer holidays and to be out of our routine and not rushing around and shouting like a crazy person every morning. On the other hand though it is bittersweet as I will be losing another one of my babies into the school system. Don’t get me wrong he is totally…

Its the end of May already?! May for the Brushneen household, has passed in a blur of dust, mess, dust sheets and more dust. As Ell has been fitting our new kitchen himself (and he’s done an amazing job), because he has only had weekends to get on with it, it seems like it has been going on forever! The majority of the kitchen was in when I wrote our April post, but we were waiting on worktops. I can happily say it is now completely finished – except for the living room has now started! Its been a boring…

It’s the end of April and it’s been a funny old month. We’ve had sunshine and shorts and then random frosts and back to winter coats. This month Izzie turned 7, we had the most glorious weather, just like the the day she was born. Straight after her birthday, all hell broke loose in our house with the start of the kitchen renovation (if you remember the infamous flooding of the kitchen by our tabby cat). The rest of April has consisted of dust, dust, and more dust and it also coincided with the Easter holidays. I feel awful admitting…

March seems to have just flown by and its time again to post our Me & Mine Project photos. It has overall been a positive month for us, compared to February (wow February sucked). Spring has sprung and the germs seem to have disappeared with winter – you have no idea how happy I am to write that. We are still in the throes of the kitchen incident – and waiting for the insurance to pay out so we can start ripping out the damaged kitchen and installing our dream one. We spent a very long. Saturday evening planning it…

We are finally at the end of February and hopefully finally coming to end of winter. (Although on a side note I thought I was a day late after Izzie told me this morning it was the 1st of March – this led to me posting it on Instagram and Twitter and causing a few laughs when people had to tell me it was still February – oops – never take the word of a six year old!) February hasn’t been the best month in our house. It never is – it is always hard on the 1st of the…

I say it every month but how is it the end of January?! I’m excited to capture a year of the Me & Mine Project as I only started in October 2016 – I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings us as a family. I was actually a bit organised this month – we took these photos at the beginning of the month when we went to Weston Super Mare to walk the dog on the beach – trying to get him in the photos too was asking a bit much though. We didn’t have the tripod with us…
