Me & Mine – July 2018

July has been such a busy month. Starting with Luca’s birthday and party in the woods, lots of days spent in my parents pool to make the most of the glorious weather we’ve been having, a doggy play date with Charli from Candidly Rhubarb, a gender scan, mini maternity shoot, school breaking up and then a trip to Stockeld Park and Fountains Abbey and finishing with a day sunflower picking.

It’s been a really truly fab month for us all and I’m hoping all the fun and frolicks continue throughout August too.  I’m really trying to spend lots of time with Luca before he has to start to share me, and I’m lapping up every second of him.  Plus he’s been absolutely lovely since school finished.

Me & Mine – May 2018

I’m only a few days late this month with our family photo.  I’m pretty proud of myself.

Although it’s a phone snap as that’s all I had.  May has been a funny old month, we haven’t really done much at all but I’ve felt completely run off my feet.  I think probably because work has been crazy busy.  We have enjoyed the beautiful sunshine that we have been having though.

our highlight of the month was taking Luca to his first gig.  He got tickets to go see Ed Sheeran for Christmas and the waiting was finally over.  He was so excited all day and I’ve never known him get ready so quickly when asked.  He couldn’t wait to get there.  Continue reading

Me & Mine – April ’18

Another late post for Me & Mine, can you tell I’m playing catch up?

April was quite the month for us.

We had an Easter egg hunt to kick off the month, I think everyone did by my Instagram that day.

Then a few days later we had a trip to Farmer Copley’s to feed the lambs and snuggle baby chicks for my birthday as I turned 30 at the beginning of April.  I had a few ways of celebrating including a few meals out, a spa day with friends and then Ant threw me a surprise meal too. I was very spoilt and actually turning 30 wasn’t so bad.

After all the celebrating at the start of the month we finally made it to the cinema to see The Greatest Showman, and I mean, what took us so long. It’s amazing!! Continue reading

Me & Mine – March 2018

As always I’m late posting our photo for the Me & Mine project. Honestly, I need to make a system for keeping up with blog stuff. I actually remembered to get the photo but then totally forgot to post it. Go figure.

Anyway, March was a busy month for us. We had so much snow. Like tons of it, which Luca loved because it meant snow days. I, on the other hand, managed to lose my house keys in it which wasn’t so much fun.

I went on a date with Ant to see Paloma Faith at First Direct Arena. She was absolutely amazing!

I also went on a photography retreat run by the ever so talented Sarah Mason, she’s here on Instagram and you should definitely go follow her. She took our wedding photos and is just fabulous and the retreat was A-MAZING. I’ll be writing all about it soon. Continue reading

Me & Mine – February 2018

So I may have only just posted our photo from January but it’s time for our February one as well.

It’s been a funny old month, we’ve celebrated friends birthdays, managed to get a date day together, visited a museum, dealt with the huge amounts of snow that fell, had lots of play dates and dog walks and Luca had a fab parents evening.

Overall it hasn’t been a bad old month, but it’s been a fast one. I didn’t get a proper photo of us all together this month, mostly because Ant has worked a lot of late shifts at work and we haven’t had days off together at the weekends much. Continue reading

Me & Mine – January 2018

Let’s pretend I’m not posting this a whole month late.  It’s been a very long time since I did a Me & Mine post. I absolutely love these posts but I either forget to take the photos (which is the whole point in the posts anyway!) or forget I’ve taken the photo and so never post it. I know, go figure.

Anyway, I’m really determined this year (I say this every year) to try and get more photos of us all together. Family is so precious and time rolls on so fast that you blink and miss it. Getting photos of us all together is so important for Luca to look back on in years to come and it is such a lovely way to celebrate a family growing and changing.

So here is my first post of the year. Me & Mine in January when we were having an absolute ball in Disneyland. 4 days of uninterrupted family time and it was absolute perfection.

It was quite simply THE BEST way to start a new year. Hopefully a new year full of all the things we are wishing and dreaming of, and hopefully we may welcome a new addition to the family this year too. Fingers crossed.
