Penny’s {DDH} Story {Part 1}

“In the simplest terms, Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip {DDH} is where the ball and socket of the hip joint fail to develop correctly.” {Natalie Trice | Cast Life: A Parent’s Guide to DDH} In true {wannabe} perfect housewife style I decided to quickly tidy up my hospital bay whilst my one day old babyContinue reading “Penny’s {DDH} Story {Part 1}”

The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}

I am all about inspiration. It’s something that comes quite easily to me; however, moving to the implementation stage is often a different story. It pains me to say it but I suppose you would not consider me to be much of a completer finisher. I get ideas, get totally excited and go two feetContinue reading “The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}”

20 {Daily} Habits {and the app that helps me stay on track}

I’ve been trying to get into better habits this last week or so, partly to help me stay more organised and partly to be more mindful about taking small steps to better health. As work has picked up I’ve found myself looking for more ways to keep on top of things but also to stayContinue reading “20 {Daily} Habits {and the app that helps me stay on track}”

Resetting {Expectations} | Guest post for Isabella and Us

This is a guest post I originally wrote for Isabella and Us at the start of the 7th week of lockdown which I thought I’d also share here 🙂 I often find myself thinking about what a “perfect” day would look like.  Getting up early, having time to meditate, practice some yoga then get upContinue reading “Resetting {Expectations} | Guest post for Isabella and Us”

Defining {Friendships}

I’ve written this post because I’ve been thinking a lot lately about friendships – how they change over time but also how my response to friendships has changed.  I’m a very open minded person.  I be-friend people easily and sometimes this doesn’t work out for the best.  Sometimes I’m not the best fit for peopleContinue reading “Defining {Friendships}”

Running for {Mental} Health | {re-post from May 2017}

This is an old post from my previous blog Tales of a Wannabe Perfect Housewife which I wrote back in May 2017. After taking a short turn around the block this morning I thought I’d re-post it here for anyone who fancies giving it a read ♥︎ When I first started running I did soContinue reading “Running for {Mental} Health | {re-post from May 2017}”

Supporting mums through {Yoga} | Guest Post from Lynley at {Topknot Yoga}

I used to practice yoga {very much as an amateur} over a decade ago and it has always held a special place in my heart. Since then I’ve dipped in and out of the odd session never really finding a way for it to fit in with my now very different life. With that inContinue reading “Supporting mums through {Yoga} | Guest Post from Lynley at {Topknot Yoga}”

Project {Simplify}

Truth be told I’ve had a version of this blog post in my head for probably close to 2 years now. It started when I was pregnant with Penny and had an overwhelming desire to declutter {hello nesting}. We had {have} SO.MUCH.STUFF. It was exhausting. Constantly cleaning, moving things around, re-organising, getting rid of stuffContinue reading “Project {Simplify}”
