Last year the very lovely Clare from Maybush Studio created the Home Life Project. It was a project I was keen to join in with and was looking forward to documenting a year in our house. But unfortunately I only posted 3 months worth of Home Life Project posts (Jan, Feb, December) due to us having to leave our rented accommodation as the homeowner decided to sell the house. December’s post saw us settling into our new home, which meant I was really pleased when Clare said she was continuing the project this year. I look forward to documenting our first year in our new home.
Our Saturday started with Clara taking M swimming whilst I got M’s bike ready for him to learn how to ride it. I spent an hour working on various sites before Clara returned with an excited M.
M immediately started trying to ride around the kitchen before we popped his coat and helmet on and took him outside. It took M no more than ten minutes before he was riding up and down outside the house. He is a determined little boy and loves being independent. I love that he can now add bike riding to his rapidly growing list of skills.
M received lots of Lego for Christmas which has given us some lovely moments at the dining table as we sit creating.
I had promised M we would make cookies in the afternoon, which ended up being a disaster. But the baking part was fun. I have a feeling the recipe I used called for too much butter, which is why they ended up a flat mess.
Once M went to bed I turned the kitchen into my only mini nightclub whilst I tried a new recipe. Clara and I have been trying to follow a meal plan of healthy home cooked meals this year and so far we are doing very well.
Thankfully the meal wasn’t a disaster like the cookies and will be one I try again soon. After dinner I added some pages to my Bullet Journal, if you have no clue what a bullet journal visit Nickie’s site to find out.
