Me and Mine – January 19

Thank goodness January is over! Though saying that February will probably be just as cold, potentially snowy but at least it contains a half term! Our photos for January were taken last weekend on a wet woodland walk with friends. In January I turned thirty five, and don’t feel so bad about it really, but man, thinking about turning FORTY…

Thirty Five and how I feel about it.

A few days ago I turned thirty five. It’s weird because I still don’t really *feel* like an adult yet I most definitely am one. I mean 35 is normally a whole new age bracket to tick on forms right? If I got pregnant now I’d be a ‘geriatric’ mum (no plans to though!) I also think I look my…

Me and Mine in December 18

Here’s our last monthly family photo of the year… I’m keeping the first one in because I love that Athena has her eyes closed! We took these a couple of days ago on our way home from Norfolk, at a country park just off the M25 somewhere, that also happened to have a fair an elf garden! We spent a…

Little Loves in December

See ya 2018! Here’s my last ‘little loves’ post of the year, a catch up on what I’ve read, watched and heard etc.    Read I’ve read a tonne of books in December, mostly because I didn’t work/use my laptop/do much on the internet over Christmas. My favourites this month were This is Going to Hurt and The Neighbors (which…
