I am the Mum who…

1. I am the Mum who thought my baby was a miracle. 2. I am the Mum who has made up a song for everything. For putting my daughter in the car seat, for every nappy change and to dry the tears. If I haven’t made a bespoke song, I default to tunes from The Sound of Music and Mary […]

Lucy Loves #5 Gin, Ducks & Soave

Hello, and welcome back to any Lucy Loves Lovers! I’ve been super busy, so things have been a bit quieter on the blog this past week.

One Year On: The break up

This week my daughter reached the grand old age of One year old! Her first birthday party. Her first bit of cake. Her first trike; and a swing for the garden from her grandparents! What a lucky girl. She also had lots of love and laughs with some of her favourite people. To add to the series of firsts, she […]

The A-Z of me

The talented Talya from Motherhood The Real Deal tagged me to write an A-Z of me. Thank you Talya. It has been an interesting exercise! Having been at home with the baby for the last ten months I wondered whether I was capable of finding 26 things to share about me (some days I almost forget who I am). I […]

Mourning Sunday Morning

Sunday. The kind where you wake up feeling the effects of the night before, so you stay in bed a bit longer. You look at your phone to check facebook to see if there is any evidence of your night, then your messages for a badly spelt ‘I love you’ text message to your friends (or worse). Does anyone still […]
