Prams & The Underground | What You Need To Know

I’ve always loved a trip to London. For as long as I can remember day trips to London have been a big part of my life and when I went to university (for a year, but we don’t need to talk about that) I seized the chance to go and live in my favourite city. So as you can imagine, the underground really is second nature to me. For someone who has a terrible sense of direction I find it an easy system to navigate – it really is as simple as just following the signs. However when we started our own family, something was holding me back from visiting my favourite place. As much as London will always feel like a second home to me, I didn’t know how to navigate the city with a baby in tow. I’d never paid any attention to lifts or accessible routes, so the thought of a day out with the pram was more than a little daunting. As I have grown this blog, invites to London have become increasingly frequent and one day I decided I was done with turning down these invitations out of fear. The fear was really just of the unknown and now that it is has become a regular part of out lives I have become confident on the underground with the pram and two little people in tow. (more…)

Our Trip To The Lincolnshire Wolds

~ I’m delighted to work with East Lindsey District Council for this post, our stay was gifted but (as always) all opinions are my own ~

After much deliberation about holidays at the beginning of the year, this year has turned into the year of the mini break, the ‘staycation’ and the long weekends. Previously it’s all been about the big holidays and jetting off somewhere once a year, but I’ve found that since having children, these shorter breaks are a much less stressful way of having a break and enjoying some time away from home. This year has seen us visit Cornwall, London and Guernsey so far, and next to add to the list is the Lincolnshire Wolds. A little while ago I was contacted by East Lindsey District Council to see if we would like to spend some time exploring the hidden gem that is the Lincolnshire Wolds – of course I said yes so here we are! Myself, my mum and the kids had a fantastic stay in the Wolds at the end of August and I’m so excited to tell you all about it. (more…)

Dear Darcie, I’ll Always Be Your Safe Space

Dear Darcie,

Today you had your first full day at preschool; you’ve been doing half days for a few weeks now but you’re always so dissapointed to have to leave after lunch so we decided to try you out staying till the end of the day today. And you loved it, you had the best time all day playing with your friends and you even learnt how to make a spark to start a fire, which you haven’t stopped talking about (because it’s freaking amazing of course!). The thing that made me laugh was when I came to pick you up. Usually if I pick you up after a half day you are¬† brought out to the school gate to meet me, but because it was a full day today I had to come into the preschool to get you. And you were fuming! You were happy to see me (thankfully – otherwise I would have cried!) but you wouldn’t stop telling me off. Crossing your little arms and doing your best attempt at an angry face ‘Mummy you have to wait at the gate!’. I did my best to point out that all the other parents had come in too, and that all of your friends had to go home as well. But you weren’t having any of it ‘Mummy we were talking! You have to wait at the gate’. (more…)

Dear Darcie, As You Start Pre School

Dear Darcie,

This week you start pre school and I wanted to write this letter to you before you do.

I want you to know how much I have adored this past three years at home with you. Yes. we’ve had our fair share of bad days but overall this has been such a happy time. The first two years it was just you and I against the world, and then this last year Ernie joined our little team too. You have made me so proud with how well you adapted to becoming a big sister, and I know I will feel that same pride again as you adapt to starting pre school this year, and then school the next.

To My Post Partum Body

To my postpartum body,

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry for a lot of things but let’s start with this. I’m sorry because this letter started out from a negative place. This letter originated from negative feelings of dissatisfaction and resentment. There’s a lot of body positivity in the media¬† right now, which is wonderful. Especially for mums! Women all around the world are celebrating their stretch marks, ‘mum tums’, excess skin. And as much as I see these posts and think ‘good on you!’, I’ve just never been able to relate. It’s never come naturally to me to accept you, let alone to think about loving you. (more…)

A Little Bit Of Me | Desenio Review & Discount Code

Some of you may remember this post I did in collaboration with Desenio back in January. We chose some gorgeous prints and frames for our bedroom and they really were the perfect finishing touch for our redecoration project in that room. So when we recently decided to redecorate our dining room, they were the first brand that I thought of to add that touch of something special to the project. (more…)
