Archers 4 Month Update


As I'm typing this I've realised that it's exactly a year ago today that I had my positive pregnancy test. That is such a strange thought to me right now. That this time last year I had no idea who the little person in my belly would be. Arch was nothing but a teeny tiny bean of hope at the time and now here he is, happy and healthy and making our family complete. Amazing.

Lansinoh Electric Breast Pump Review


'How are you feeding them?' is one of the Q's you hear the most when you have a little baby. Every time I'm asked how I'm feeding Arch and I tell people I'm doing mixed feeding it's always met with a bit of a '???' reaction. The questions that usually follow are 'What is that?' and 'How does that work?' and the truth is that mixed feeding wouldn't have been at all possible for me to do without the use of an electric breast pump.

Weekend Watch - 04.06


This past weekend has seen the start of sum propa decent summer weather. Finally.

I feel like this is the first thing acquaintances say when they bump into one another in the street 'Ooh this weather really makes a difference to your mood doesn't it?' I know if I ring my grandma later she'll most likely say exactly that and yes its a bit of a cliche but its true! Nothing seems as bad when the sun is shining.

 We're 3 days into this blistering heat and long may it last.

Weekend Watch - 28.5.16


Why do bank holiday weekends always go wrong for us!? I honestly think we're a little bit cursed when it comes to the weekend and making any sort of plans. 

Weekend Watch - Bridlington


I've been a bit absent on here recently. In between sleep deprivation and constant poorly children I've been struggling for time but what better way to get back in to it than with a good old weekend watch!

Me and the kids went away with my parents last weekend to Bridlington and I can't tell you how much a change of scenery was needed after the last few weeks. I decided from the off set that I wouldn't bring my DSLR or my G7x, no vlogging or blogging this time, just time to relax and be in the moment with my children and so that's exactly what I did.

LapBaby Review


There's no denying that having a small baby is tough. I've always just accepted that the first 6 months of having a little one means having zero hands free time and therefore no routine whatsoever. The dishes are constantly dirty and there's piles of laundry all over the house but I've found I don't mind all this as much as I thought I would. I love all the teeny tiny baby cuddles I'm getting right now and although Arch is my velcro baby if he's anything like Lily was it means he'll suddenly become super independent as soon as he learns to sit up and all of a sudden my arms will be empty again. That being said there are things that do mean a lot to me such as blogging and photography that are going by the wayside right now simply because I don't have the hands free time to do it . 

It's only since getting my hands on the LapBaby that I've realised it doesn't have to be this way at all.
