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…

A women’s worth

This past year of my life has been a period of evolution and development, one of which I haven’t taken much time to reflect upon or appreciate. When becoming a mom, whilst carrying Finn, I was so in awe of my body, in awe of its process of creating life, sustaining it, carrying it, protecting…

1 Year of Finn

I can’t believe that Finn’s first year of life has happened, our little man turned 1 yesterday and despite still being able to vividly remember the days leading up to and the day of his arrival into this world, it has just gone so quickly! He has grown and developed so well, he is a…

Christmas with Finn

It’s been a little while since we last shared, this being our first Christmas as a three we really wanted to sign off and take in the magic of it all. We’ve loved every minute of it and getting quality time as a family without the stress of work tearing us away. We even brought…

A Lawrence Halloween

Our first spooky season with our little one, Halloween and Autumn are my favourite and so I was really excited to introduce Finn to all of the festivities! We’ve got a way to go before scary movies, trick or treating and parties become a thing so we decided to celebrate our own way this year….

How are you? No really.

Well dear Reader, it’s that time again. It feels like forever since I’ve shared something other than life milestone related stories. Unintentionally so, as as a parent, having time to reflect at the end of the day is a luxury that the majority of us cannot afford. So I’ve fell into the trap of sharing…
