I fell behind! We’ve hit the dreaded ‘four month sleep regression’ and while I’ll post about that in the future – let me share a few weeks in photographs so you can see what we’ve been up to. 1. Baby Button is so much more alert to the world around him now. He’s 16 weeks old and I can’t believe…

Oh the joys of social anxiety. I’ve blogged about my struggle with it in the past, but the truth is.. It hasn’t featured on the blog lately because I feel I’ve conquered it. In person, I have my own ways of coping and while they don’t always work I’m much better with it now. But in 2018, there’s another social…

In that short space of time, you’ve educated me in life lessons I never thought I’d ever have to learn – what to do when I’m in the middle of changing…

So the tree has been packed away into its box, the lights no longer twinkle incessantly and there isn’t a scrap of wrapping paper to be seen – Christmas is over and done with, dawn has broken on the twelfth night and we can all collectively breathe a sigh of relief. That said, now Christmas (and New Year) have been…

2017 has come to an end – rather quickly! I know I wasn’t prepared for the midnight chimes on the 31st of December, but I’m here to round off the year and open a new one never-the-less. This year ended on a huge high note for me, welcoming Teddy into my world and changing my whole dynamic – I’m not…
