A UK BASED FAMILY & LIFESTYLE BLOG

Search

It's not about showing off our family (as proud of you all as I am), or just all about making a living through sharing our lives.

It's not just about Mummy having something just for her - a creative outlet, a hobby, something to keep her brain ticking over and a place for her to make friends and feel part of a wider community despite not leaving the house as much as I did before I became a stay at home/work at home Mum.

It's about capturing a feeling. Or feelings, lots of them.

It's about capturing the magic of what it is to be a parent and all of the many powerful feelings that come with it. The powerful highs, the powerful lows and the ordinary every day in between moments.

And sometimes it's those ordinary everyday moments that are the ones I want to hold on to the most.

I've never really had any grandparents. Not ones that I was close to anyway. So for me, it's amazing to see the relationship Etha...
Yesterday should have perhaps felt somewhat easier, Ethan had been out all day with his grandparents at an air show. Adam was at work, ...
I wrote this post the other day about stepping out of my comfort zone and about how I was finally going to stand up and do something...
It's June and that means we are half way through the year. I could write and write about how I can't quite believe that half of 2...
My little boys airplane obsession all started last year following a day out at an airshow with Grandparents. As typical English weather g...
I'm used to writing from the heart, but somehow this seems like a particularly hard post to write. I don't really know how to...
My little baby, now you are three. You're not such a baby anymore, but equally you are still my baby and you always will be.  I...
Three little words that mean so much.  This week my little boy said those three little words by himself of his own accord to me an...
Before the clock even ticked past 9am this morning I had a metal plane dropped on my face by Ethan whilst I was in bed leaving me with...
I'm a firm believer in that it is OK to say when you're struggling. It's OK to ask for help. It's OK to not be OK from ti...
There are time (mostly in the shower when I had more time to think) that I remind myself "Alex, you are a Mum of two children" ...
