Before Alfie was born, we knew that we would get him christened. I have grown up going to church and love the sense of family you get from being part of a community. We decided to get him christened at my family’s church – it was where Craig and I got married, where my grandparents … More Christening Celebrations

Last week I went swimming and I wore a bikini. As a new(ish) mum, this is a pretty big deal for me. I never thought I’d wear a bikini again after having Alfie, however after wearing a swimsuit on a hen do and feeling decidedly frumpy, I bought one to see how I looked. How did … More Loving MY Body Beautiful – Part 1

Sunday was Craig’s first father’s day since Alfie was born. I think I was more excited about it then he was! We had such a lovely Mother’s Day, so I really wanted to return the favour and plan a lovely day for us all. We were woken at about 8ish by Alfie, and I brought him into our … More A Fabulous First Father’s Day
A few weeks ago we went on our first family holiday. Being on maternity leave and trying to save for a house, we couldn’t afford to go abroad this year (as much as I neeeeed a beach holiday, I’m sure it won’t be as relaxing as it used to be pre-baby anway!). So we … More Safari Adventures
Alfie is 8 months old and has already been a guest at three weddings in his short little life! Each wedding was definitely a different experience to attending a wedding pre-baby, and each wedding was also different due to the different age and circumstances of the event! His first wedding was when he was just … More Three Weddings and a Baby
