The Perfect Nursery

The Perfect Nursery

When I found out I was expecting our little Monkey, I immediately starting dreaming of the perfect nursery. I had a vision of a beautiful white cot, with a rocking chair by its side, like I remember from films when I was a child. Soft walls with a large stencil of the date and time of our little ones arrival, being the main focus of the room. There is something about children's furniture that just makes you smile.It's one of the many joys of becoming a parent. I remember pouring over magazines and…continue reading →
Our Special Lunches

Our Special Lunches

The last week in our old house and first few weeks in our new house were kind of crazy at lunch times. I usually go home for lunch as I only work a few minutes from home. But due to all the packing and unpacking chaos, we decided to spend our lunches in a local cafe we recently discovered. Our local cafe is full of locally produced chutneys and jams and stocks the famous Olive Et Al products, which are made locally to us. I'd much rather support a local independent cafe than…continue reading →
50 Facts About Us

50 Facts About Us

Cold dark nights have given us plenty of time to practice our vlog making skills. We are really enjoying making them and thought we'd make another. So we took to YouTube for ideas and decided we'd make a 50 Facts About Us vlog, not only to share facts with viewers, but also you our readers. Some of them are the most random facts ever and some are facts we didn't even know about each other. C is the planner in our relationship, so she prepared all 25 of her facts before we started…continue reading →
A Relationship Vlog

A Relationship Vlog

If you are new to our blog, you may not have seen our venture into vlogging. It's something we have talked about doing for a while now and we made the jump a few weeks ago and love it. So far we have tried to answer questions posed to us by our twitter followers and readers on our Facebook page. We enjoy answering the questions and have even learnt a few new things about each other, by answering the questions. Our latest vlog was about our relationship, I would have liked to answer…continue reading →

This Time Of Year

This Time Of Year

This time of year is perfect for walks in the park. A time to run through leaves, splash in puddles and look at all the colours of the trees. It's also the perfect time to stop and look at what we are lucky enough to be blessed with. Every day is a day to be grateful for the gorgeous family I have, but there is just something about the end of the year approaching, which allows me to slow down and really take account of the beauty before me. Our little man is…continue reading →
F&F Clothing for Kids

F&F Clothing for Kids

We really never need much of an excuse to dress our little man up. Both C and I adore the little outfits on offer by F&F ¬†Clothing for kids at Tesco. So when we were contacted and asked to select a partywear outfit for a competition, we couldn't refuse. A good friend of ours had shared with us a gorgeous shirt on instagram, which was added to our list. We then chose a cute little vest sweater, some chino type trousers and lovely little Boots to finish it off. Our little man has…continue reading →
Secret Triggers

Secret Triggers

Last month I opened the doors to my¬†Invisible Illness, I've lived with it so long now that I'm able to go about my day to day activities without revealing the true effect my secret triggers have on me. Far too many think that if something can't be seen to affect you, then it can't be having much of an impact on your life. This is far from the truth when it comes to OCD. Most of my compulsions occur behind closed doors, literal and metaphorical. Ironically I've lost count of the times I've…continue reading →
My Breast Decision

My Breast Decision

When puberty started, it seemed like I had it easy. Most of my friends were covered in spots and had hideous mood swings. I never felt the need to wear make-up, other than a little mascara. I used to get comments like 'You don't know how horrible it is' and 'You lucky cow'. To everyone who saw me on a daily basis it looked like I had got away with it. What they didn't know was I was hiding a huge secret, something that made me cry on a daily basis and ruined…continue reading →
Settling in

Settling in

Those who are regular readers of our blog may have noticed we recently moved. My in laws sold their house and were kind enough to allow us to move with them, until we save our a place of our own. Not only did M get his first ever bedroom to himself, we also were lucky enough to have space for a toy/living room. We managed to fit in most of our home furnishings from our previous loft room but weren't able to fix our blind up. But luckily we've found a great range…continue reading →
