So, this is going to be a bit different to my usual updates about Frey. You see there's a few things that I've never mentioned on here or on my social media about Frey which I need to explain. Just after Frey turned two, me and the hubby were getting really worried about Frey, his … Continue reading Frey’s 30 Month (2 1/2 Years) Update
Meal Planning and Budgeting
Before I became a mum, meal planning and food budgeting were things that never really registered with me, and then I had Frey and I quickly realised how naive I had been. I can't believe how relaxed I used to be about our food shops and what we were going to have for dinner. There … Continue reading Meal Planning and Budgeting
Sigi’s 6 Month Update
I say this every time, and I'll say it again, I can't believe Sigi is six months old. Where is the time going? While I love how much she's developing, sometimes I just want time to stand still, just for a few moments and let me enjoy how small and wonderful she is right now. … Continue reading Sigi’s 6 Month Update
My (Almost) 6 Months Post C-Section Update.
Sigi is almost 6 months old (how has that happened?!), Which means I'm also nearly six months postpartum so I thought I would do a bit of an update about how I'm doing. Physically, my C-section scar has healed very nicely. I do get the occasional twinges, especially if I've had to walk a long … Continue reading My (Almost) 6 Months Post C-Section Update.

Sustainable Living: Cloth Nappies, An Overview of Our Journey So Far.
This is the first in a series of posts I'm planning to do all about our journey with cloth nappies and reusable wipes, how we've been managing with them so far. When we had Frey I didn't even think to look at reusable nappies or wipes. The overwhelming feeling of being a first time mum … Continue reading Sustainable Living: Cloth Nappies, An Overview of Our Journey So Far.
To Nap or Not To Nap?
That is the most infuriating question of all at the moment. So, lately, there have been problems with napping in our house. Frey has just turned 2 and hes at that phase where sometimes he just doesn't want to nap, and honestly, it's exhausting. He used to go down for a nap between 12-1 and … Continue reading To Nap or Not To Nap?
Me and My Mental Health.
Today, October 10th 2019 is World Mental Health Day. I've spoken on here multiple times before about my mental health and my struggles, with my post natal anxiety after Frey was born, but what I haven't really talked about all the other things that cause me anxiety, make me feel worthless, or a bit of … Continue reading Me and My Mental Health.
Sigi 3 Month Update
I know I always say it, but how do I have a three month old? Seriously where has the time gone? Feels like yesterday she was a few days old and now she's in 3-6 month clothing and can hold her head up fine all on her own. So she's a big girl, there's no … Continue reading Sigi 3 Month Update
