Here we are almost a week into September. The holidays are over and the children are going back to, or starting preschools or schools and here we are all emotional because are babies are growing up! The days, months and years go by too fast and so here we are looking back on yet another month gone by.
A big month for us as Jessica turned one. We had a weekend of celebrations followed by a week of well deserved family time. We picked a lovely week and the weather was great. Jessica was a bit overwhelmed by the whole birthday thing, she was tired and teary after a couple of days so a relaxed day was needed.
We didn’t go away for the holiday, we had a couple of days out. We went to Skylark Maze one day and then later in the week we went to Whipsnade Zoo, there will be a post on this so keep your eye’s peeled!!
In August I had my most popular post, EVER! Whilst to some 42 Facebook shares isn’t much to me it was. It was nice to share a post that included so many other lovely bloggers and their stories. If you haven’t seen it you can read it here.
We also got the chance to work with some lovely brands such as Peachy Fox, Sensse and PurePotions. Some really lovely products so if you’ve not seen them pop over and have a read, maybe treat yourself!
The lovely Emily at Twin Mummy and Daddy hosts a “Brilliant Mum” feature. It was a pleasure to be invited to take part, you can read it here.
I shared what my day looks like over with the lovely Laura from Dear Bear and Beany, you can check it out here.
