Feeling loved

Living Arrows 2018 (11/53)

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran
We had a slightly shorter week, as it was inset day on Friday and so we kick-started the weekend by roping my Mum into taking the gang swimming.  Teddy was so proud of himself for ditching the arm bands and trying a noodle for the first time!  The joy on Florence’s face when she entered the pool will stay with me and my mum for a long time. Its really tricky to take them swimming as most pools are strict on ratios, so it’s great to have my Mum close by now to help out.

A long weekend of eating and drinking, seeing family and hopefully a few brighter spring days is a winner in my eyes. Continue reading “Decorating for Easter on a Budget!”

What my 1 year old Eats in a Day

If you’re stuck for ideas on what to feed your baby/toddler and just fancy some inspiration, do you ever look at YouTube? I often enjoy watching food videos for feeding Florence and all the family.  Here is my recent video, which is a collaboration with two of my good friends that I have met through this crazy social media world! Both Amy and Kirsty enjoy documenting what food they enjoy as a family, so we thought what better than to join forces on this video.

I do hope you enjoy!
