Living Arrows 9/52 – New food and drink

Another week has rolled around. Where do they go? I look forward to Monday as I love that feeling of a fresh new week starting. Working from home full-time means I never really know where the week is going to take us. We may have plans for practical things, such as the dentist, or plans for a day out but besides that who knows?! We’ve had weeks that have been amazing and weeks that are not so amazing, one consistent remains. Being together. Spending time with my family makes me feel absolutely privileged. I love knowing that my daughter doesn’t have to go to a nursery and that we can do almost anything at a moments notice.  Living Arrows 9/52 is now live!

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said that you can find here. Parents are invited to link up weekly and share photos of their children from the previous week. I love taking part and I’m looking forward to looking back at the end of the year.

My cherished moments as a Mum with #MumMoments

Becoming a Mum to my daughter Daisy has been the most amazing, tiring and scary journey of my life. There were times during my pregnancy when it was feared that Daisy would not make it alive. Obviously that was an awful time. Now that Daisy is here I try and focus on spending as much of my time as possible just enjoying the moments. I try not to sweat the small stuff so much since I almost died, again. Anyway, life feels good and today I want to talk to you about my cherished moments as a Mum with #MumMoments. Now before I mention some of my cherished moments I should mention that there is something everyday really. There is not a single day that passes as a parent where I don’t feel grateful but these are just the ones that come to mind for me.

Living Arrows 8/52 – A week of sheer exhaustion!

Happy Monday! I hope you have a great week whatever you end up doing. This week is going to be filled with dentist, physiotherapy and swimming for us. While our week may not be particularly eventful I’m still looking forward to getting things done and having a great week. I’ll be working lots this week, around Daisy napping and being in bed. It can be hard at times to fit everything in but I’m a fan of a challenge so it’ll be fine I’m sure. This is my Living Arrows 8/52 post – I hope you enjoy it.

Living Arrows 7/52 – 2017 – A family holiday

Monday is here again! I really like Mondays. There is something great about having a fresh week ahead and lots of plans both online and offline. We’ve been at Centerparcs for the last week and we’ve had a great time as a family. It was lovely to see my brother, sister and their children. We participated in lots of activities and it was lovely to have a break together. This is my Living Arrows 7/52 post!

A playpen is a real Godsend for me. As a parent who works from home, and doesn’t use a nursery or childminder, I need a playpen! I really do!
