Me and Mine: October 2015


October has been a busy old month and so has flown by. I can't believe how close we are to Christmas now - it's pretty crazy! Now that I'm a Mum to two, I'm so much busier and so I've already started Christmas shopping, because I know that it'll be Christmas just as quickly as I can blink and if I don't shop now, Christmas will roll on round and I'll have brought nothing.

Adam turned 27 at the beginning of October.. 27... I don't even know how that's happened! HOW are we both 27!? It's not particularly old I know, it's just that the years have flown! We spent his birthday in Camber Sands this year - it was so lovely to visit the beach and to have some time out as a family and with his parents too. 

I've done a lot of thinking this month, thinking about direction and change in a personal and work aspect. Thinking about the next few years. Thinking of how soon we'll hopefully be looking at getting our house renovated. I've suffered a lot with my back this month too and that's been hard, really hard. I've realised how incredibly weak I am and how much I need to work on increasing my strength as I've got to the point where I feel I am struggling to carry Logan, bath the kids or do simple things like sit on the floor and play with them both. I'm working on things though, I'm seeing an osteopath again and I've signed up for physio which will start next week. I'm going to focus on what I'm putting into my body food-wise and make sure that I'm getting at least ten minutes a day to myself to relax. A fellow blogging and channel-mum'er introduced me to an app called Headspace and I'm so glad that she did as I really need it in my life. 

I've shared some of these photos of our little family from our weekend away already here on my blog and on social media, but I really like them and they remind me of Adams birthday. And so they've just got to be my chosen photos for Octobers Me and Mine.



And I'm going to throw in this one in too, because any photo in which we're all in it instantly becomes a favourite of mine. :)


 I hope you've all had a lovely October. Do go and check out our lovely host Lucy, she has just had her beautiful baby girl (congratulations again lovely!). I am really excited to see her first ever Me and Mine pictures as a family of five as I just know that they'll be utterly beautiful!

  1. Oh your pictures from the beach are gorgeous! With the end of the month having been so decidedly cold and damp around here it's incredible to think that it was so warm and sunny only a couple of weeks ago! It looks like you had a brilliant time, and no, 27 is not even close to old!

  2. These photos are all so so SO gorgeous Alex. You can't beat the beach as a photo backdrop in my opinion. I can't believe how grown up Ethan is looking lately. And how big Logan is all of a sudden; he definitely seems to have left that newborn look behind. x

  3. What beautiful photos - I especially like the ones of you all together on the beach. It looks like you had gorgeous weather and hard to believe that they were taken in October. Hope the osteopath and physio help with your back. Headspace is a fantastic app - glad it is working well for you. Well done on starting the Christmas shopping too - I haven't even started thinking about Christmas yet so you're more organised than me! :-)

  4. Stunning family beach photos Alex I love these. Your boys look so happy and so alike here. They are just adorable. I am the same any photo with us all in always is a fave it's harder to capture us all together all the time that's why I love this project so much. What a lovely place to spend a birthday. Weather looks amazing.

  5. Well done for making a start on your Christmas shopping! I hate the last minute rush too so tend to do mine throughout the year, as and when I see something I know a loved one would like. Glad Adam had a lovely birthday and you enjoyed your time away. Sorry to hear you've been having back problems. I hope having a bit of time to relax helps xx

  8. Gorgeous pictures, Alex. Sorry to read about your back, that can't be fun. Hopefully the osteopath and physio will work their magic. I'll have to check out the Headspace app- that sounds like something I could do with. I can't believe how big Logan's getting! Xx

  9. Oh I am so unprepared for Christmas - agghh! Well done for getting your shopping down now.

    I'm sorry you've been suffering with your bad back - I get the odd day of back pain now and again and it's awful. Can't imagine how it must feel to have it all of the time. I hope the regular appointments help.

    Gorgeous photos of your family - can't believe how big your boys are getting. :)

  12. I suffered really badly with my back when my kids were small and I still suffer now if I haven't been doing as much exercise as normal. I can feel it weaken, however I know how painful it is so lots of hugs your way. Your photos are beautiful, I love the colours with the beach,
