Making a change for the better.

Making a change for the better.

Over the last few years since meeting and falling in love with C, I've been making small changes to the way I live. When I first met C I smoked about 20 cigarettes a day, drank heavily, hardly exercised and ate everything that was bad for me. I was far enough away from my 30's to think that I could get away with treating my body badly and it would forgive me when I was older. I felt awful, every single day. I had a hacking cough, I couldn't sleep properly, I had…continue reading →
Coping with a cold

Coping with a cold

This week Monkey came down with his first ever snotty and snuffly nosed cold. One thing I've learnt from my son is, he handles colds a lot better than I do. I mean, look at this picture, does this look like a poorly baby? But even though he looks the picture of good health, he really has been suffering.

When it's comes to the weather, C and I are polar opposites in our temperature preferences. C loves the sun, hot days and drinking an ice cold cola, where as I love the snow, being able to wrap up on chilly days and hot chocolate. As soon as snow was predicted last week I was a little excited at the prospect of Monkey getting to see his first ever snow. As you've probably noticed from our posts, we love to celebrate firsts and milestones. I think it's important to enjoy those moments you…continue reading →

It's been such a fantastic year and it's certainly been an adventure. In January 2012 we were just getting started out…continue reading →
Monkey is 4 & 5 Months old

Monkey is 4 & 5 Months old

You'll notice that the title of this post covers two monthly updates. The reason for this is we kept meaning to write a 4 month update, but time just whizzed by with prep for Christmas. So we've decided to do both updates in one. The picture below was taken just after Monkey turned 5 months old on the 30th December. These two months we've seen the most noticeable differences in Monkey. He's really found his voice and giggles if you work hard enough for it. His personality is growing every day, a favourite…continue reading →
