Sunday at Scolty.

Not such a bright and sunny morning though sure to make the most of it, Sunday moring and we woke early, got ready and headed out to Banchory for a trek up Scolty hill. How come it is never the weather you want when you make plans? Typical Scottish Summer. Fern and Eleanor were inContinue reading “Sunday at Scolty.”

Babies first.. . (squeal) teeth.

It seems that the Easter bunny brought with it not just chocolate and candy, but something a bit more sentimental, our first two teeth! I’m sure those first teeth bring the same bout of excitement to all parents around the globe. You must excuse me if this isn’t your cup of tea, I tend toContinue reading “Babies first.. .

Fighting feelings; mind over matter.

Storm in a teacup Before I even begin to write this post, I already feel an element of guilt, concerned by how my words may come across. I even feel bad about thinking these thoughts and sharing them on a public media platform, for others to read and share. However, from the beginning of myContinue reading “Fighting feelings; mind over matter.”

Eleanor’s holiday closet.

As we approach holiday season and count down the days until we set off on our first adventure as a family of three, you can imagine the excitement and the hype.. and nerves, that are flying around the household. It is like Christmas all over again, only with the added benefit of a wee breakContinue reading “Eleanor’s holiday closet.”

Babies first..trip to A&E.

I noticed as I woke a little dried blood on the bed sheet, this had come from Eleanor’s ear which has also specks of blood dried up. Worried by this, I cleaned her up and kept my eye for any odd behaviour and warning signs of infections. Eleanor has lately grown an obsession with tuggingContinue reading “Babies first..trip to A&E.”

Things that go bump in the night.

I’d always said that my baby would never fall out the bed and how crazy that even just the thought of it was. That was until early Sunday morning, we woke with a crash, bang and cries from Eleanor who was wedged down the side of the bed. Yep, you read that correct. Our firstContinue reading “Things that go bump in the night.”

Mum guilt; The real deal.

It’s a funny old thing, you become a parent and all of a sudden you are no longer your own person, you are a Mother, a Father. You lose a sense of identity but gain a whole new realm of responsibility and love that you didn’t even know was capable. The love for your baby,Continue reading “Mum guilt; The real deal.”

Yes, babies cry. Deal with it (and love them hard)

I am writing this post having been inspired by a recent trip to the GP for concerns over the health of our baby daughter, Eleanor. A baby who has always been, in my opinion very vocal and dependent. I believe this to stem from her connection with me due to breastfeeding. I could be wrong.Continue reading “Yes, babies cry. Deal with it (and love them hard)”

Motherhood. Finding myself through creativity and balance.

As you will be aware, I have began preparing and planning for my Wedding day. Upon doing so, making up lists, gathering material and fabrics.. It has all led to some new found and very welcome creativity. Who knew? Having finished the whole seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, I was on the hunt for aContinue reading “Motherhood. Finding myself through creativity and balance.”

A family filled festive Saturday.

Alright, now we are into the beginning of December, time to dig out the old Christmas decorations from the store and get busy… decorating that is. As the first Saturday of the month, we had some time alone just the three of us to enjoy. What better a time than the first weekend of theContinue reading “A family filled festive Saturday.”
