Growing Pains

I’ve been back and forth and struggled with how to write down exactly how I’ve been feeling lately. I’ve felt it for some time, in the back ground, I’ve put it on a shelf at the back to come to later when I could find the head space to open it up and read through…

Sonflower

Sunflowers have and always will make me think of our son Finn. Even before he became a seed in my belly, sunflowers surrounded us on our journey to having him and have been a sort of symbol of that journey. From sunflower murals on hospital walls, through to bouquets bought to celebrate small victories as…

Celebrating Life

From what feels like a good few years of hermit life, this past month has been a real opportunity to step out into a life that some what resembled the one previous to all this change! This post is short and sweet, and nothing more than an opportunity to share some snapshots from some really…

Little Naturalist

When times are stressful and the inside of my head becomes a battle ground, nothing roots me more than getting out of the house, getting some fresh air and exploring nature. This is the way it has always been ever since I was a young girl. I loved nothing more than hopping on my bike…

Jewellery Making

My very best friend, who knows me better than anyone very kindly gifted me a jewellery making class for my 30th birthday! Knowing that I love to be creative and hands on, this really was such a thoughtful gift and best of all we both got to keep our own custom made rings at the…

Self Care Survival

Time has escaped me once more, but so has so much more recently – like my ability to plan and eat functional meals for myself, making sure I’m consuming enough water, taking time to myself. The last month and a bit I’ve been stuck in survival mode due to a culmination of multiple work deadlines,…

An open book once more

Lately I’ve been feeling reflective, both in my personal life as well as in this realm of blogging. This blog has been such a source of support, escapism, a way to de-clutter my thoughts, to connect with others, seek advice and feel less isolated over the years. I’ve been looking back over my more recent…

Down to Dorset

Earlier this month we jumped at the opportunity to join our family down on the coast for 2 days, what should have been a week away with the family turned into a 1 night stay in our brother/brother in law’s caravan (who luckily is within our support bubble), but no matter the length, a stay…

The big 30

Just under two months after the actual big day, because apparently my life is now about forever catching up on things since becoming a mom, but still I’ll persist! I’m not sure if it’s a result of the past couple of years being so restricted and almost a blur to look back on that I…

Go outside

15 months of Finn and we are comfortably in the stage of going on outdoor adventures with our confident little explorer. We’ve been excited for the longest time about days like this and with the way life is currently, we make the most of every opportunity we have to make the most of sunny days…
