1. This week was my first week alone with Sorsha. I was worried that I wouldn't manage to get everything done or that I'd be bored but we had a great time! I did miss having Allan around but we kept busy. I built Sorsha's bouncy chair and she loves it!

2. We also went on a buggy walk with other mums and grannys. It starts off at the local community centre and because it was a lovely day we went for an hour walk around the area and then some tea and a chat afterwards whilst playing with the babies in the soft play area. I even got a bit of a tan!

3. To keep me busy I started baking! I made these oat, chocolate and coconut cookies by adapting a recipe from the Great British Bake Off: Big Book Of Baking...

4. ...and this multi grain bread! Both turned out really well!

5. Sorsha has really strong legs so Allan has been encouraging her to stand and she even took a few steps! She looked like a little robot but it was so amazing to watch!

6. The shops have fresh peas in the pod on sale now, that means it's definitely summertime eh?!

7. Allan and I went on our second no-baby date to see Jurassic World at the cinema. I loved it, it felt so much like the first and the music always makes me excited!

8. We recently discovered that we don't have more than two matching wine glasses so I had a bit of a homeware spree. George at Asda has had great stuff these last few years so I got a new teapot, tumblers and wine glasses, all for less than £10!

9. Yesterday was Allan's first Father's Day. He was working part of the day, but we made sure he didn't leave without opening his card and presents! Unfortunately his real present hadn't arrived in time so we had to buy a substitute frame for my favourite picture of them. When he came home we had a nice family meal and watched a movie together. I love my little family!

Have a happy week everyone!


  1. Lovely post! That bread looks delicious - nothing beats homemade bread. :)

  2. I'm so glad your first week alone went well and am very impressed you found time to fit in some baking! Putting me to shame.

    Hope this week treats you just as kindly xo

  3. Snap on the strong legs! We're so proud of how well Matilda stands - aren't they the cutest when they're wobbling around, finding their balance?!

  4. Thanks! Mmmm, straight out the oven is best! x

  5. Thanks Laura! I'm sure it was just a one off! :D x
