{The Ordinary Moments 17} #16 ‘Social Media, Life Changes & Not Feeling Myself’
In all honesty I sat here this morning, ready to write this post and I literally had no desire to open my laptop. I've always tried to be honest on my blog or on social media, but these days it sounds silly but I occasionally feel a little stifled. Afraid to post something in case it is taken in the...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #15 ‘One day it won’t be like this’
My eyes are barely open, they are puffy with tiredness as I haul myself out of bed to the sound of my baby boy crying. I scoop him out of his cot, bring him in our bed and he thrashes around until he gets what he wants. I attach him to my boob, I haven't looked at the time...

Our 2016…
There's something about the dawning of a new year that really makes me want to sit and reflect, to hatch plans and set goals. I bought a new diary planner a couple of months ago, yet the other night at some random hour when I was feeding our baby boy I ordered another one. I like the idea of...

My Thoughts Around Body Image (ad)
When I was going through my photos of our recent holiday to Orlando I came across the first shot directly below. Instantly I loved it, as it captured a really special moment between myself and my big girl. I went to share it on instagram and then I stopped and chose something else. Why? Because on reflection I decided that...

{The Ordinary Moments 16} #26 ‘Holiday Phone Pics, Making Plans and General Rambles.
Last Monday we got back from the most wonderful week away in Majorca on our first holiday as a family of five. I had wanted to write a post a lot sooner than this, but in all honesty I just didn't have the time. That's not to say that I haven't been doing things, in the evenings when I...

This Time After Birth
It's 3.05am in the morning I think, or it could be 1am, 2am or even 4. The time is irrelevant. All that matters is I am awake. I try and somehow heave my sore and broken body up as my little 6 day old son cries out for me, his little shrieks getting more and more frenzied as he...

Going from Two to Three Children…
When it is your first pregnancy you spend hours (well you did if you were me) researching and looking into baby items. Whether it is big important purchases like your pram or car seat, down to necessities like baby monitors and tiny gorgeous baby clothes, everything is a bit of a minefield. When I was pregnant with Mads I...

{The Ordinary Moments 16} #12 ‘The Last Time’
I lie on the sofa writing this post and the only word I can use to describe how I am feeling is uncomfortable. If I stop to listen to my breathing it feels heavier than usual, a little more breathless than normal and when I stop to think about it, it makes me feel a little lightheaded. My right...

When You Just Feel A Little Bit Scared About Birth
I've been a little hesitant to write this post, I'm not even sure why. I don't know whether it's because I feel it is a little silly, or a little too personal, or even almost in a weird way like I am tempting fate, but for some reason every time I began to write it I stopped myself. However I...
