The sun was shining yesterday so we left the house earlyish before Matthew’s driving lesson and headed to the good old Botanics. I’ve replaced our old buggy with a second hand Bugaboo Cameleon so that we could fit a Bumprider buggy board at the back of the pram for easier transportation of my babies.
I saw these jumpers on Instagram and before I knew it I was on the bebeandme website and clicking on “add to basket”. My excuse was that they were a Valentine’s gift for Matthew (and Lana)…Matthew used to be a wannabe gangsta rapper in his previous life and a big fan of Notorious B.I.G. (Biggie Smalls) – so it was really the perfect gift!
If you follow any bloggers or vloggers chances are you will have read or watched “the boyfriend/husband tag” posts. It’s basically a post where the husband gets asked questions about his wife and their relationship. I’ve been wanting to do this with Matthew for ages and figured that Valentine’s Day (yeah I know it was yesterday) is the perfect time for it, so here we go!
Anyone who’s got kids knows that you won’t feel comfortable going to just any restaurant for a meal anymore – it needs to be a place where you and your children are made to feel welcome, where there is a kids’ menu, where you can fit a buggy in and where there is some entertainment for the little ones. Baby changing facilities are important too!
Lana’s 3rd birthday party is done and dusted even though she keeps asking when her guests will arrive today…I don’t think she understands that it can’t be her birthday every day yet! Yesterday we threw her a little party in our flat, and OMG I didn’t realise it was going to be so stressful! But thankfully it was also fun and it was so nice to catch up with so many friends and their kids!
Yesterday, just as I was trying to leave the house with the girls, someone rang the doorbell. I opened and it turned out to be a guy from our gas and electricity company who wanted to check our meters, which seems to happen every few months. It was a big, friendly guy with a foreign accent who I immediately took a liking to.
Ever since I moved to the UK (almost 6,5 years ago!) I have become increasingly obsessed with Nordic brands and I love the thought of being a bit of an ambassador for the brands I love and new brands I discover here on the blog. The simple and elegant lines of Nordic design really tickle my fancy and it just makes me feel less homesick being surrounded by it. Going to Ikea is another way of battling homesickness – but it’s getting increasingly difficult to get Matthew to join me hmpf.
I haven’t been sleeping that well lately as I just find myself not being able to get back to sleep for a couple of hours after Maya wakes up for her first feed. She’s still sleeping well though, usually 5 hours, then a feed and another 5 hours. Can’t complain! But you probably know how it is when you’re tired; you just want to be comfortable and can’t be bothered putting too much effort into your outfit – so that’s the kind of outfit we’re talking about today!
