Life Lately

I've been pretty quiet on the blog for the past few months, especially since Freddie was born. I've got a huge list of things I need to do, such as writing reviews, new posts and do a few touches to the design, but life simply gets in the way. I am still breastfeeding Freddie, and he is totally a different baby compared to his sisters. Mia and Elliw had their naps during the from a young age but Freddie hardly sleeps, and if he does, then it's on me while feeding. He has started to go down for his night sleep around 9 pm which is when I do my blog work, but there are some evenings where I decide not to blog and either catch up on some sleep or have a cosy night in with my partner.

I can't believe we are in November already, last month just flew by. I think it may have felt quick because the girls were off school for their half-term holidays in the last week. We did a few activities during the half-term and the girls really enjoyed themselves. Entertaining kids all day, every day, can be really exhausting, especially when Freddie is back to waking up every 2-3 hours during the night. It took a while to get back into our school morning routine, but we're getting there.

We took the kids to watch the fireworks on the 4th of November, but the weather was awful. As we were half way walking towards where the event was, we decided to turn back, because we were drenched. We ended up watching the fireworks from the car and Freddie slept through them all. A neighbour set off some fireworks the next day, so we enjoyed watching them from the house.

As the weeks have gone by, my blogging mojo is disappearing but it is coming back slowly. The more time I was having off the more difficult it was trying to think of new posts and catching up on posts I needed to write. I've caught up on a lot, but I am still needing to do more work. My blogging hours have gone down so much since having Freddie. It can bother me some days but that's only when I stress myself out about it, however, it doesn't bother me most of the time because Freddie is only a baby once. He's my last baby and I want to treasure every single moment. I feel so lucky that I am able to watch my children grow up and work from home.


  1. We decided against going to the fireworks too. It was very windy and rainy here so we also watched them from the window. Much warmer! It is great being able to spend the time with children working from home.

  2. Thats a shame about the weather for the fireworks. We were lucky, it was freezing but dry. I also can't believe it's November, this year has flown by!x #marvmondays

  3. Such beautiful photos! But it's nice to hear you're enjoying time with your children. Blogging will be there even if you've had a little break and you'll definitely get your head back into it. Shame about the fireworks, but at least you got to watch your neighbours! #MarvMondays

  4. Sometimes blogging has to take a back seat especially with the rate these babies grow! Freddie is such a handsome boy and of course your girlies too :) thats a shame about the fireworks - we were lucky that it didn't rain but it was so bitterly cold! #MarvMondays

  5. Lovely photos of the little ones. Glad you all had a lovely half term. Its nice having all the little ones at home, but so hard at the same time isnt it. I found it lovely, but exhausting! Our littlest is still waking up every few hours in the night so its really hard going, but theyll get there eventually. Like you said, they are only babies once arent they :-) Lovely update, thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Hope you find your blogging mojo again soon! Emily x
