TOP 50 FAMILY AND PARENTING BLOG | BEST FOR KIDS

When I started blogging, I wasn’t expecting it to be something I ever carried on with. I went into it half heartedly and even though I am not a prolific blogger I feel like I blog along nicely, so to speak. I’ve never blogged for the […]

FOR THE LOVE OF | BLOGS

FOR THE LOVE OF | BLOGS

I am back this week with my mini-series For The Love Of. Which I have now turned into a linky! This week its all about Blogs! It always takes me sometime to pick my top three this month as there are so many, I love. I know eventually I will feature all my favourites on this little mini-series, but I still had a hard job picking! I have so many favourites. So here are my three for this month..

 

SORRY ABOUT THE MESS

I have been reading Chloe’s blog since I started blogging. Chloe was pregnant with her second boy and I somehow fell right into the world of “Sorry About The Mess” Chloe’s family has expanded to three boys since I found her little corner. Sorry About The Mess documents the life of a family living in London. Chloe loves recording memories through words, photos and videos {yes another YouTube favourite too!} and the photos she takes are absolutely gorgeous. Definitely pop by if you have not already done so. Sorry About The Mess is a must read.

 

 

CAPTURE BY LUCY

Capture by Lucy is the most down to earth blog I have read. I happened to find Lucy through the Me and Mine project and since I first had a read, its been bookmarked as most definitely a top 10 blog of mine. Lucy’s blog is a  collection of stories of life from her forever home, places and people who inspire her, and her work as a commercial lifestyle photographer. Her photography has to be my most favourite reason for liking her blog. Her photos are just beautiful and she really captures everything. Other than Lucy’s photography my other favourite part about her blog is the posts about her amazing birthday parties and celebrations she hosts! She really knows how to put on a great show! Do check her out if you haven’t already.

 

 

TOBY AND ROO

This is a newish blog read for me. I have followed Harriet on Instagram for some time now. I have no idea why I didn’t start her reading her blog sooner, but once I did, its one I don t like to miss out on! Harriet is a mum to two boys and one daughter. She basically shares the wins and woes of parenting, and isn’t ashamed to either. She is honest as anyone can be about parenting and I just love her writing skill. Its one to check out.

ANNE WITH AN E, FLAMINGO PRINT, NEW MINI-SERIES | LITTLE LOVES 19/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. Its been a busy week. I had the carpenter in at the beginning of the week finishing of my doors, which let me tell you look amazing! I also had friends over for brunch on Tuesday which was lovely and so good to have a natter and a gossip. I am still prepping for our summer fete and its taken over my week! I will be so glad when its over with!

I’ve been loving lots this week, without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Read

My sister has lent me Hurrah For Gin. I have been wanting to read this for ages so I am all ready to delve right in. I am going to put Apple Tree Yard on hold for now. I think because I know whats coming I can predict it and its taking the enjoyment out of reading. I will go back to it at some point.

Watched

I have not watched it yet as it only dropped down on Netflix today but I am so excited to sit down and watch the new series Anne With An E! I absolutely love Anne of Green Gables and I doubt it will be as good as the original but I think being a Netflix original it could be pretty damn good.

Mr B and I have also binged watched E4’s Tattoo Artist Of The Year. Its very easy going and quite laughable in some places. With it being 6 episodes we managed to catch up over the course of 3 days. I wasn’t expecting the end result if I am honest. But worth a watch.

Heard

I am still listening to the Big Little Lies soundtrack. I can’t turn it off. It goes on straight away when I am in from the school run. Such a beautifully put together album.

Wore

A few weeks ago I popped into Tesco and bought the most amazing pair of Flamingo print trousers I ever did see. I have been waiting to wear them and the weather peaked at 20° yesterday so I thought it was ideal opportunity to get them out. I love the print, they are so comfy and lightweight. Perfect for summer! 

Made

Not much. Can we skip this..

And lastly..

We have a busy weekend. G and H are desperate for new clothes so we are off out to get them some bits for our Center Parcs holiday! G wants to choose her items so we are braving the shops of a weekend!

On another note, I have started a weekly Mini-Series called For The Love Of, I know a few people have read it and I someone {Im looking at you Mum Reinvnted} said it would work well as a linky. So next week I am opening it up. I am not taking to too seriously as I always try and start one and then fail miserably! BUT if you would like to share with me what you have been enjoying, next weeks topic is Vlogs, just pick three Vlogs your loving this month and write a brief description about it. I am always looking for new ones to watch so if you want to join in you can! The topics change weekly from Vlogs, Blogs, Instagram and TV..

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!

I am linking up with the ever so lovely Morgana over at her new blog Coffee Work Sleep Repeat  for this linky,

THE FEAR

THE FEAR

When I was younger I wasn’t afraid of much. The only things that scared me were death, Injun Joe from Tom Sawyer {he sacred me a lot, I have no idea. It didn’t help that my sister would say he was in the wardrobe at […]

A LITTLE UPDATE | MY MELANOMA JOURNEY

A LITTLE UPDATE | MY MELANOMA JOURNEY

Its been a while since I last updated my you all about my melanoma journey. Its been a strange few months and I just haven’t wanted to blog about it. When things get on top of me I find it quite therapeutic releasing the thoughts in my head. Its like counselling but there is no-one sitting on the couch opposite. I have bundled all my thoughts in my head and I feel like I need to get it all out.

Last time I updated I was waiting. Waiting for those dreaded results. I did mention in a post that thankfully everything came back clear. I had 3 moles removed and I was so worried that something was wrong. The sense of urgency didn’t help. The result was all all fine in the end but the whole process is nerve wracking and so stressful. I over think things and I always think the worst. Its hard not to when you’ve been in the firing line of potentially bad news.

Last month I had a plastics surgery appointment and I don’t ever work myself up half as much as I do when I have a skin cancer appointment. The appointment was running two hours behind and by the time I went in I was actually a nervous wreck! I had sat and dwelled on everything that had happened within the last year and a half and got myself in to a bit of a pickle. I still struggle even today to come to terms with it and I still get quite angry, sounds silly but thats the anxiety talking.

Apparently my original scar is healing really well. I am still having nerve damage treatment on it as its still quite painful. The treatment has dwindled and I am not going as often which is always good news as its doing the job and lasting longer each time. My consultant said that the whole scar looks great. Unfortunately my most recent operation has bought back some pain to the original site. We are going to continue with the treatment for the foreseeable.

My scar, I hate it, I hate the way it travels down the side of my neck. I still try and cover its as much as possible. Now the weather is warming up I am struggling to hide it. Its not as noticeable now but when you know its there you have this overwhelming sense that everyone knows and everyone is looking. I know its not the case, thats what my mind is telling me and its hard to tell it to stop.

My next appointment is a big one. I have no particular worries yet. I am sure I will panic like mad before hand and pick something out for my consultant to check. For now I have a bit of a break from hospitals. I will be enjoying the freedom of no doctors, no consultants and no checks..
