  1. The Diary of an Emotional Mummy

    It's my last full day with both the girls before they start back their school adventures. I've never been one to go straight back into life's routine after any time out. When I was young after any half term/summer holiday I would cry because I didn't want to go back. I'm not ashamed to say it, I'm still like that now. I'm not ready for the change. Eva is starting her very own school journey. She is so excited and it's s joy to watch her face light up like a Christmas tree when you mention school or when she talks about it. She's going to make the transition from pre schooler to schooler look like a walk in the park. To me she's still a little young, she likes to occasionally have an afternoon snooze, she loves to throw a tantrum that makes any supermodels meltdown look a joke. How is my girl going to cope with a full on school? Then there's my big girl, my sesitive soul and homebird, we can't really discuss school because she just doesn't want to go back. I know her anxieties will be brewing, bubbling under the surface of her wide smilie grin. She's in key stage 2 now, class room set ups are different, a brand new teacher plus coping with us not all being together all the time. That right there is a BIG struggle for her, but my girl it's a struggle for me too.

    I know deep down they will have a blast and I can't wait to hear about what they get up to, it'll be like summer never happened and routine will become the norm once again. My heart if full of love for these girls and it's bursting with pride. So for today we are going to enjoy our last full day with breakfast in bed, head to Belton House for a play in the park, just me and them no sharing allowed with anyone else until Daddy comes home from work, we've got uniforms to get organised all while I steal myself away to shed some tears in the bathroom or kitchen.

  2. Weekly Round Up

    Posted on


    This week was the 1st full week off school so I packed the girls off to their granny’s! I mean I've got to ease myself into full on mamma day care right? They had an absolute blast as they always do with their granny and uncle NeeNee.

    Having them out the house has meant me and the boy could crack on and paint Eva's new bedroom that's been on the to do list for the last 6 months. I can't wait to get this room finished and her shipped in. I'm thinking there will be a seperate blog post on the new room of dreams once it's all done.

    As lovely as it was not having the girls around (the peace and quiet oh the peace and quiet) it was so nice to get them back. We’ve had a play date with some friends and headed out on a bike ride. Now Eva is a pro at riding her bike I’m thinking lots more bike riding during the holidays.  

    I was hoping we'd be able to play out in the garden this week so I could get outside jobs done but the weather gods thought it would piss all over my garden plans. I am so desperate for some warm sunshine; my body is literally craving it. Plus I have bought some rather fab shorts from H & M that I want to wear. Here's hoping the sun shines all of August. A girl can dream right? 

    So that's it a rather dull week but a fairly productive one. Lots of orders have come in this week and I have finally gotten round to updating the website, something that I’ve put off for a while because it’s a boring task. I am finding that haven taken a little step away from work whilst recovering from the exhausted pigeon state (see previous blog)  I now have a passion for work again, an interest in creating beautiful pieces. Sometimes it’s good just to take a step back.

    We are heading back to the caravan for the weekend. We have a new awning to test drive (when did this become my life?) which will probably result in a divorce or some form of couples counselling. Wish me luck.

    Have a fabulous weekend. 

    Muchas Love
