So here we are at the end of May already! This month has gone so fast for us, yet I don’t have anything particularly exciting to report.
May’s photos were taken just yesterday at our Bank Holiday village fete. Yay for Bank Holidays! I had a vision of these images being bathed in sunshine, but sadly it was rather a grey day, but we had a lovely time together as a family and Lottie was in her element watching all the people and dogs.
We moved to this village the same week Lottie was born and I absolutely love it. It’s a bit like stepping back in time – everyone is so friendly and there is a real sense of community here – totally different to the town we lived in before where everyone very much kept themselves to themselves. I’m so pleased to be bringing Lottie up in such a nice environment. She already has more friends in the village than I do!
We bought Lottie a second hand book for 50 pence and she didn’t let go of it the whole time we were at the fete. So easily pleased.

All of last month’s organisation for Me and Mine has gone to pot this month. March has been a month of bugs, which ended with a visit to A&E with Lottie this week. She is fine now, but that is... Continue reading →

I love pasta. And I love cake, so this recipe is a no-brainer really. *Disclaimer* It doesn’t taste like your normal sort of cake, but it looks like it, so that pleases me. Ingredients Large onion 2 cloves garlic 200g... Continue reading →
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared my happy days, as life has been a tad hectic recently, but I’ve missed looking back on the positive in our week. This week started off with my first Mother’s Day and... Continue reading →
