Me and Mine | March 2016



It was so cold taking these photos, or it wasn't but I felt cold at least, but that was because and little did I know at the time but I had a virus. The same virus that's struck a few people down this month apparently. We'd gone out for a walk as I wanted some air, I'd been having headaches for a few days and I thought maybe they were due to being cooped up in the house. But apparently it wasn't that, luckily being unwell only lasted a couple of days, even if it did break my long run of having not thrown up for more years than I can even remember. But it's fine - I survived.


I don't even need to say that March has been a fast month, I seem to say the same thing month after month because the reality is is that they're all flying by. I simply can't understand how it's April tomorrow, especially so because April means one thing to me and that is that it's my little boys birthday - his third birthday! HOW do I have a three year old? Three sounds so much more grown up than two!


Our loft conversion started this month, I feel like we've been saving and talking about it for a while and now that it's all happening, it's a little bit like 'Woah!'. The builders come and go each day, it's noisy but it's not too bad as they're up in the loft and on the roof where we don't really see them and so aren't really that affected by things, other than the banging of course. It's the banging that's a little scary though to be honest, having your home re-shaped and things torn out and put in feels like a big thing. A big, grown-up adult sort of thing, I just hope it all goes as it should and that we're as pleased as we hope we'll be with the finished work. 

This month was also Easter - we had a lovely Easter, it was really fun and family focused, which for me is the perfect way to spend any holiday or time off. I've written a post about it, but I've been more time-poor than usual lately and haven't yet had time to add photos to it, so I haven't yet hit publish. It's 'on the list' as I always say. 

I hope that March has been kind to you all and that you had a lovely Easter break with your family. Please do link up any pictures you have from this month of you with your family with us.

  1. Oh no!! What a way to end the month - I'm glad you're feeling better now. Your building work does sound very exciting and yes, very grown up too- there's something about taking active responsibility for a roof that somehow infers adulthood isn't there!!

  2. Fab photos, they sum up March perfectly. It's funny when you start doing things that make you feel like a grown up, I have to remind myself that I am an adult!! Three is old, I didn't like when my daughter turned three, they really are a little person and they grow up so much. x

  15. Sorry to hear you've been poorly, Alex. Three really does sound so much older than two, doesn't it? My little boy turned two at the weekend and I was feeling quite emotional about it but I think three will be even worse!
