Weekend – hashtag family time

Weekend – hashtag family time

So what does this mean to the average family? Does it mean painting the perfect social media portrait of quality time with your kids, indulging in wonderful activities that everyone enjoys? Does it mean spending all your weekend with one another because the weeklong slog makes the dedicated time together so worth it? Or does … Continue reading

New Term = FREEDOM!

New Term = FREEDOM!

September is most definitely my favourite time of year. I love the holidays and I love the sunshine, but even more, I love a fresh start, a new term, and a quiet house! My social media feeds are full of a mix of weeping mothers, missing their kids, having spent the holidays together, creating memories. … Continue reading

Baby Blake is 1!

52 weeks ago you came into our lives, very quickly and a bit earlier than we were prepared for, but in the most magical way. Clearly a FOMO (fear of missing out-er) in the making, you just didn’t want to let the Christmas celebrations happen without you. Giving birth to you at home really was … Continue reading

Whilst this was never a problem when it was just Dexter to look after, there is now a colicky baby added to the mix and I’m finding myself wishing the hours would pass quickly instead of just trying … Continue reading

Introducing my daughter….

Introducing my daughter….

So after consciously uncoupling from my blog for the past 2 months I’m ready to get my blogging on again. And what better way to come back than with a bit of lovely news…..I have a daughter! Wow. Still feels weird to say (type) out loud. Blake Kauder-Day was born on Friday 12th December at … Continue reading

Emotions

The poor OH doesn’t know what to do with himself as he’s living with 2 emotional time bombs. I’m an emotional wreck most days; be it an advert, a nice dinner, something that’s been said, coughing, breathing. Something will set me off. And now Dexter has hit a stage in his life where he’s getting … Continue reading
