Cheers and Happy New Year yet again! I hope the first couple of days of 2015 have treated you well. We had a quiet NYE at my parents house with the little man.

James and I have chatted about how we are going to manage things with Finley and sleep, we are also going to aim to have a date night once a month if my parents don’t mind watching him for a couple of hours. James is also going to take him for an extended period a couple of nights a week and give him a pumped bottle so I get a decent stretch every now and again. Also…
Getting in a big healthy food shop! I’m still not a massive fan of online grocery shopping as I like to wonder round the isles and pick out nice things. However since I was pregnant online shopping as been a godsend in terms of time.

Sending out my latest newsletter, I really enjoyed writing it! // reading How to be a hip mama without losing your cool – this book really spoke to me and it was so helpful reading the stories of other women I can relate to // sales shopping, I’ve got some great bargains and really updated my wardrobe! // fitting into some old jeans I haven’t worn for ages // James baby wearing Fin, so adorable! // that New Year fresh start feeling // Finley, always Finley :-)
