U S ❤️ This boy helped me discover a love I couldn't have ever imagined, the kind of love that lugs you out of bed at 2am to take them to the toilet, even though your eyes are heavier than they feel in your arms. One that sees you sat by their bed reading 'one last story', though they've promised that for the last four stories before this one and a love that doesn't alter or adjust, no matter how many tantrums they throw. Noah you're a cool cat and you'll always be baby number one ❤️
H O M E 🏡 Finally have almost all the prints up downstairs and there's something about pictures that really make a house a home. I'll be showing you what I've opted for on my Insta stories if you fancy a good nosey.
M O N D A Y ☕️ It's definitely caffeine in this household. It still feels like the weekend as we're both off today which is lovely. Today is going to be a day of getting shit done and kicking Mondays ass. A Monday well spent brings a week of content right?
M O R N I N G 🤘🏼 Thank god it's Friday, I am shattered after a night from hell with Patrick - I'm not sure what the child is playing at. At least he's cute so I can't feel pissed for too long, those cheeks 😍
B O Y S ❤️ Today I saw a fellow blogger say all baby boys are gross and 'ugh', and I have to admit at first it hurt a little. But then I realised I felt nothing but pity, pity that someone obviously hasn't experience the ferocious love and roars of laughter that is life with little boys. Koala grip cuddles when their sleepy souls can't make it up the stairs to bed, their warm snuggly tummies pressed against the side of yours as they find their way into your bed in the morning. The chubby sweaty palms clasped tightly in between yours as they wait for you to guide them. Nothing beats being a boy mama - and they're anything but gross ❤️
F A M I L Y 👫👬 My favourite print in our house so far, even though my gang drive me crazy a lot of the time. They are mine and that makes me feel super warm and fuzzy inside ☺️
W O R K, W O R K 💻 Having my own little office space has definitely motivated my ass to working hard on my blog again. I've got so much to do over these next couple of days but when you're doing what you love, it never feels like work.
T W O ❤️ When we just had Noah, we always wondered what his relationship would be like with any siblings. Would they get along and love each other, or would they fight and wind each other up constantly. The truth? They do both, and that's what being brothers is about - being arch nemesis and best friends at the same time. 👬
M O N D A Y 🦈 I don't know when last night ended and Monday started as sleep was so blurred. It appears a cough, and stubbornness has my old year old basically nocturnal. Here's to coffee - thank GOD I bought a new jar yesterday as I had completely ran out. 🙈
N O A H 👦🏽 Today when I've had anything to do where I've left the house, John has stayed with Patrick and I've just taken Noah. It sometimes takes seeing them on their own to realise how grown up they are, he really is a little dude now. My little dude and the coolest one around 😎
M I R R O R, M I R R O R 🔮 On the wall, tell me who's child is the naughtiest of all? 🙋🏻🙋🏻🙋🏻 No need for a mirror, it's mine. Patrick was a bit of a turd in Nottingham today, which wasn't helped with how absolutely rammed it was due to it being Gay Pride. Managed to snap up the perfect mirror I've been looking for the bottom of the stairs. I will be insta-home worthy one day !
T H I S B O Y 🤒 I feel as though since I've been at work this boy has been poorly constantly. If it's not one end it's the other. Yesterday was jab day, which he mastered with not a cry - what a champ because after four needles I think I'd cry. But today he's struggling, high temperatures are being battled with neurofen and cuddles, the best sickness cure ❤️
P L A N N I N G 🖊 Someone smart once said 'We make plans and god laughs'. Which seems to be very apt at the minute as this Patrick fella is always poorly meaning he's missing lots of nursery and me of work. I'm hoping to get him booked for an allergy test as I think we've got a cows milk issue on our hands. Aside from that, roll on the weekend as mamas going out out and she can't bloody wait 🥂
M O R N I N G ☕️ I'm two cups of coffee down and feeling slightly more human. Me and Patrick are snuggled on the sofa as Noah is off on his swimming lesson, we're waiting on deliveries today so this mama can finally finish up her work space. Tuesdays are always a bit mundane aren't they - how's yours going?
P A T R I C K 😍 This boy is just John in a babies body. It's so frustrating but my gosh is he cute, my little babe.
W O R K 🌵 My office space is almost complete and I can't wait to show it off. It'll be nice to have somewhere that's completely mine to sit and blog, as I currently steal Johns desk for hours in the evening.
S N U G G L E U P ☺️✨ Every house needs a basket of blankets right? Well, we certainly do today as Patrick's become a poorly peach as the day as unfolded, vomited thrice and very cuddly. As lovely as those cuddles are I'm hoping it's a 24 hour thing and he's raring to go by sunrise. 🌞 As for my basket of blankets, well, I'm suddenly feeling very autumnal and felt as though this will be the perfect set up when the leaves start to fall and the cold creeps in. 🍁
B E H A P P Y 🍩 Today we've been busy, the morning started with strawberry picking, followed by a visit to the shops and a play at the park. Now we're all home getting snugly before our Sunday Roast. How's your Sunday been?
M U T H A 👊🏼 My maman badge arrived today and it will now proudly be displayed on ever item of clothing I ever wear. I also did a TK Maxx & boots splurge tonight, I found birthday cards and gift bags with pom poms & tassels on - what more could you want? Check out my stories to nosey 👀
H A U L 🛒 Who doesn't love a Zara sale? I've hauled the full shop over on my Insta stories if you want to nosey. I made a bit of a tit of myself with the hermes delivery driver, texting her instead of John what I wanted from the shop; with I quote 'be quick, I'm hung' 🤦🏽♀️ I meant hangry!
