Having two children 21 months apart is hard. But as tough as these early days/weeks/months have been, I wouldn’t swap it for the world and The Siblings Project is such a lovely way for me to look at their blossoming relationship and remind myself that it’s pretty darn awesome! I feel like I don’t have as many photos of Toby and Martha together from the past month, but with a good fortnight of illness in there I haven’t taken as many photos anyway to be honest.
When Phil and I bought our first house together, we thought it would be our forever home. A lovely 200 year old cottage in a fantastic village with great schools nearby and a wonderful, huge garden. With Toby’s arrival a year after we moved in, we realised just how different a home becomes once a child is brought into it.
Last week, Martha and I hopped on the train (the one after the one we were meant to catch – ooops) and headed to London to spend the morning in the company of I Just Love It, Historic Newspapers and some lovely bloggers, for their Mother’s Day Blogger Brunch. We were treated to some amazing food, great company and delightful personalised gifts that I simply need to tell you about.
In the words of the fantastic Liam Neeson: I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career.
Phil and I have travelled a lot, both separately before we met and during our relationship. We absolutely adore the thrill of exploring new places but recently that’s had to take a backseat.
