Getting Aj Ready for Reception in September

Getting Aj ready for Reception in September

I remember last year when I was so excited about Aj starting pre-school and wearing a uniform and then getting back into work from maternity and the school runs! All the things that could happen in a year…

Now, we’re doing it all again, getting Aj ready for new school again in a new town and once again there’s a lot to think about, to plan and prepare for…

Standon Calling Family Festival 2016

Looks like we’ll be going our first family festival in July! How exciting!

Earlier in the week I got asked if I’ll be interested in attending the Standon Calling Family Festival 2016 and I was like where do I sign up! These are all part of the things I used to miss living in the north I tell you – networking and family events.

Settling down in the South - Aj & Junior

Aj and Junior settling down in the South

I still can’t believe we moved down south! I talked so much about my doubts and uncertainity so it’s funny how I did a quick turn around. Sometimes life just presents you with an opportunity and you either grab it and run with it or dig your heels in and stand your ground…

All things considered, moving down south has been better than I expected. We decided to simplify a number of things which helped, however, come September it’s going to be interesting time again and I just pray it sorts itself out before we get there!

New beginnings… new job, town, nursery, school…

The last two month have been a whirlwind! I don’t even know where to start…

Next thing I knew, I found myself (and my family) in Hertfordshire!

Yes! We’ve moved down south!

Toddler milk vs Cow milk for a 1 year old

I was so looking forward to switching to cow’s milk when Junior turned 1! I won’t have to worry about buying formulae and we’d just carry on using the family milk – we would have to switch to full fat whole milk of course, because of him, but I wasn’t complaining about that!

Now, all my dreams have been shattered…

My little man is no longer a baby!

Junior turned 1 over the weekend…

I still can’t believe it if I’m honest! I kept checking to make sure the date was right! I know I say it all the time but this year really is flying by too quick!

It was also my birthday on Sunday so we figured we’d kill two birds with one stone and make life easier for us all. It’s not like Junior is going to remember his first birthday anyway, right?
