Degustabox March 2017 box – Find out what’s inside!

I’m absolutely in love with my Degustabox! Each month, usually on a Wednesday, I get something nice come to my door. A box of goodies. Goodies that I can eat and drink and enjoy something new. I really enjoy the chance to review this box each month and share the contents with my readers. I have the Degustabox March 2017 box to review and there WILL be spoilers in this post!

Living Arrows 13/52 – Daisy’s 1st Birthday!

Last week we went on holiday! We had such a wonderful relaxing time. Also, while we were there we celebrated Daisy’s 1st Birthday. It was a wonderful week all in all. Finally Daisy and I have recovered from being unwell with various bugs and then hand, foot & mouth. All in all I feel like we’ve finally got back on track with our health and we have had an absolutely lovely past week! Living Arrows 13/52 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 first year as a parent – how it really went!

My daughter is one year old. I cannot believe that a year has gone by since the day of her birth! Thinking back to her birth doesn’t fill me with great memories, besides having my wonderful daughter of course. Anyway, the last year has been full of ups and downs. Life is like that isn’t it! Gives with one hand and takes away with another. This is my experience of my first year as a parent.

Most days have had something amazing about them though and I’m so grateful Daisy is here. Life is feeling good and I’m getting back to my old self too now, whoever that is?! Daisy is one year old – it has gone so fast!
