Shopping haul

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a brilliant weekend so far. I’ve had a lovely week with Finley being home and James being off, it’s like the paternity leave he never quite managed to have he first time round with us being in hospital so much! We went shopping which was amazing, I think while we were so worried about Finley I couldn’t think straight, but now he’s sorted I could think about the things I needed to feel more comfortable. I’m still no where near where I’d like to be weight wise, but as I’ve blogged about before, life is too short! I got some really nice quality basics for days just chilling round the house including some new yoga pants and a hoodie from TKMaxx, a cardigan and leggings from H&M, some new nursing bras from M&S which are fabulous and some thermal vests for cold nights. I also got some snacks from Holland and Barratt, a new iPhone cover and some false eyelashes ready for the party season. I’m planning a post on style soon, as I’ve been reassessing what clothes and styles work for me now as a new mama.

Says it all right ;-) I haven’t done much in way of my 10 minute workouts as this week has all been about chilling with Finley and James. Next week I’m determined to get into a new routine.

Wear

Denim shirt dressBlack long cardigan: M&S, denim shirt dress: Mango, scarf: Vero Moda, leggings: H&M, boots: Primark

There’s not many old clothes I have that are suitable for nursing but this old shirt dress is great. I’m loving the cooler temps this week and things feeling more autumnal. Boots and thick socks for the win! And how long is my hair getting!?

Of course our little man coming home is the absolute highlight of the week! Although he has his serious face on in that pic, he’s been smiling a lot more. He has been a bit poorly with oral thrush, but hopefully that will clear soon as I’ve got him on baby probiotics, grape seed extract wash and coconut oil as well as the doctors stuff. He’s also gained a shit tonne of weight which is amazing! As I said, this week has been like the paternity leave James never had, we’ve spent days chilling on a duvet on the living room floor binge watching episodes of House, listening to the fireworks and smelling the bonfires, it’s been lovely :-) Also…

I have to admit I’m starting to feel a little Christmassy now. I always say that once bonfire night has passed it’s time to start getting ready for the holiday period and with a brand new baby I’m even more excited about Christmas this year!

How have you been this week? What breakfast are you enjoying the most right now? When do you start thinking about Christmas?

    Love that iphone case Laura, it’s really pretty!
    I just bought a denim shirt dress pretty similar to yours from Topshop, they’re so versatile and comfy! You look great in yours :)

    I always bake Christmas cakes in half term, but only because I have free time then, but I don’t tend to think about other things to do with Christmas until later in November. We have had our heating on this week and it has been nice and cosy at home :)
    Such good news about Finley :)

    I love the combination of mackerel and beetroot – so tasty with some avocado and cucumber thrown in too! I’m also on an oatmeal kick since the weathers getting colder!

    I am so glad you are having some fun times with your little family now :)
    Life is too bloody short to be worrying about not hitting a post baby weight, especially with what you have been through!
    Finley is adorable!

    Glad Finley is doing well, love the serious face! I’m definitely getting back into warmer breakfasts now. I hate the Christmas takeover, and wish it wouldn’t start until Dec 1! It’s far too early!

    Sounds like a beautiful week! must be so lovely to be able to relax now after the surgery :-) I have started to feel really Christmassy now! Strange as it must seem to you the weather here has been getting really sunny and hot which has really gotten me into the holiday mood! spent all weekend in the garden with our toddler and at the park picnicking and running around – it was great! I am looking forward to doing a few late night Christmas shopping expeditions with my mum soon and I am definitely going to treat myself to a gingerbread latte too!

      It really is great not having the surgery hanging over us! I would never be able to get my head around a hot christmas but it does sound good fun! Hope you enjoy that gingerbread latte :-)

    Oh wow how exciting is Christmas going to be for you with a little one there :)
    Love your approach to the weight-loss. Your baby is only a baby for so long, your body is your body for ever.

      I know! We have so much to look forward to with him :-) You are absolutely right, something I keep reminding myself of is how fast this precious time flies.

    Fenwick window! I remember loving that – it was the start of the festive season when that started. Love the toon! Anyway I have been loving my instant gluten free porridge with raw honey and peanut butter – so good. Aalso starting to think about Christmas and planning when to get my Christmas tree. Finis looking so well – what fighters kids are:) xx
