Living Arrows 3/52

I’m pretty impressed with myself that I’m linking up to Living Arrows for the third week in a row.  I’m usually rubbish at remembering to do things like this. 

I love this photo. I’ve popped Isla in her cot while I put all her clean clothes away. It’s the easiest way these days as otherwise she’d be crawling all over the place of picking things up off the floor that shouldn’t be there (Daddy’s dirty socks, empty carrier bags, utility bills!) 

And yes, she is wearing a Christmas sleepsuit in this photo, for those of you that may recognise it. But I’m getting all the wear out of it we can. 

Last weekend we had to lower her cot as with the Sleepyhead in there as well she could easily have flung herself over the side of her cot…. looking at the photo we may have to lower it again soon! 

Her hair seems to be growing so quickly at the moment, it’s lovely, and so so soft!  And look at those gorgeous big blue eyes!

My 20 Wishes for 2017

It’s taken me ages to write this post. To be honest, I’ve really struggled to think of things I wish for for myself that I could realistically achieve!

I’ve been tagged by Ayse from Arepops and Katie at Living Life Our Way to write what my wishes for 2017 are.  So here goes: Continue reading →

Isla Jean at 8 months old

It’s a few days late but I really wanted to post an update on Isla.

I can’t believe my baby girl is 8 months old already. Chris and I were talking in bed the other night and we were saying it seems crazy that she has now been born for longer than we knew I was pregnant! Life seems is so completely different now she is with us, and I can’t even begin to think what it would be without her. She is my world and my life is so much better with her in it.

Isla’s has changed so much over the last month. It really is crazy how much she has changed Continue reading →

Living Arrows 01/52

I’ve decided this year to try to be a bit more active with my blog. I’m hoping the fact my lovely hubby and parents bought me a shiny shiny tablet for Christmas may help with this. So I’m going to attempt to join in with What The Redhead Said’s Living Arrows linky as often as I can.

How We Do Christmas

I was tagged in the How We Do Christmas Tag by Amy over at Amy& Tots, Siobhan at The Baby Boat Diaries and Zoe at Mama Geek

This will be a particularly special Christmas as it will be Isla’s first and also our first as a family. She obviously doesn’t understand it at all yet but I’m still excited for it!

My favourite films

So I thought I’d do a bit of a little getting to know me kind of post. For those readers who don’t know me personally, or who just want to know a little bit more. So here are a few of my favourite films, in no particular order


I think it’s just a funny film, with the added benefit of Ben Affleck! It has a fantastic cast; Matt Damon, Alan Rickman, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, and Alanis Morissette who plays God! It’s basically about a woman who has to save humanity from destruction by a couple of renegade angels who are trying to exploit a loop-hole to get back in to heaven.  It has so many fabulous quotes it in, but I quite liked this one (particularly as it is mentions a certain film that is pretty big this time of year)
