    Me & Mine {August 2017}

    Another month over and for once I don’t actually feel like it’s flown by too quickly! Which is surprising as we have managed to squeeze so much in. Instead it’s just passed me by at a nice steady pace. More months like this one please?

    We’ve had lots of family time during August and made so many lovely memories. I’m definitely ending the month with a very full heart and just feeling really quite content with life right now. It feels like we have really settled into our new family dynamic as a four now. Life before our little Hugo Bear feels like a distant memory. He has slotted in so perfectly and we all absolutely adore him.

    During August we have visited both Scotney Castle and Sheffield Park, two of my absolute favourite National Trust places. We also spent a lovely morning at the Sunflower Maze with my Sister and her family, which is where we took this months photos! I love them so much and will definitely be heading back next summer so we can recreate them. 

    Josh has had the last week off of work and apart from his paternity leave I think it’s the first time ever he has taken time off just to spend it at home rather than going away. We have all really enjoyed having him at home this week. And just this week alone we have been for a walk at Ashburnham Place, brunched at Bills, taken Bella swimming and spent a day at Knockhatch adventure park. 

    It’s been a busy month but one I will look back on with lots of fond memories. Normally by the beginning of September I am more than ready to embrace all things Autumn, but not this year. It’s been such a special summer and I am desperately clinging onto these last few sunny days. I am sure by the end of the month I will be all about the chunky knit jumpers, autumn leaves and hot chocolates. But not quite yet! 

    How was your August?

    Me & Mine {December 2015}

    Oh boy am I a few days later than I had hoped with this months Me & Mine post. Mainly because I never got around to getting a nice family photo this month. I completely forgot to ask someone to take one on Christmas day and then our self timer attempts on a trip to the farm a few days after Christmas failed miserabely thanks to a hideous angle (I think I need to invest in a tripod!). I then remembered again on New Years Eve just before we headed out so we quickly snapped one at home, not very exciting at all and the lighting is awful but it’s better than nothing! Note; Must try harder this month.

    Although the reality is in fact that we have spent most of our Christmas break at home thanks to us all getting ill and the god awful rainy weather. I had visions of lots of lovely family winter walks but lets face it, who wants to go for a walk in the howling wind and pouring rain? Not me thanks.

    At first I felt disappointed that we hadn’t done all the outdoorsy things I had hoped to, but in hindsight we probably all needed some down time at home. Josh and I do always say how we wished we had more spare time to spend at home as we sometimes feel we don’t get to enjoy our home enough as we lead such busy lifestyles. We had plenty of days spent in our Pjs enjoying uninterrupted time as a three. Which really was quite lovely actually.

    Part of me is looking forward to getting some normality back into our routine although I can’t say I’m thrilled at the thought of the nursery run in the rain tomorrow morning before my first day back at work. I know I’m going to miss Bella more than usual and no doubt I’ll find myself counting down to 5pm so I can go and pick her up. I’m sure within a few days we will have fallen back into our usual routine and 2016 will be in full swing.

    I can’t wait for this time next year when I can look back over a whole year of Me & Mine photos and see how we have all changed over the months. It’s such a great reminder to make a conscious effort to at least get one family photo each month throughout the year.
