It’s Monday again. Is that a good thing or a bad thing for you? I quite like it- there’s the feeling of possibility in the week ahead. I’ve spent the morning going for a jog and doing housework, then time with Liam at playgroup, now he’s being looked after and I’m trying to decide whether to sit in the sun like these t-shirts here, or do something more productive. . My go to brand of laundry detergent is @ecover_uk - they’re all about limiting and recycling plastic, using natural substances where possible and generally being an ethical company. For the record, I’m not being paid to say this, just sharing some everyday stuff that I think’s great! . . . #laundry #sunshine #goldilocks #ecover

Recommendations: . Just Eat It by Laura Thomas- a guide to intuitive eating. Only one chapter in but a revolution in simplifying something that should be straightforward but sadly isn’t for way too many people. . 2) Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig- was reading this before bed and had to have a break as it gets quite full on but a real philosophical wonder. . 3. Selfie by Will Storr- a fascinating exploration of why we’ve become so self obsessed. Halfway through this and it’s joyful. . What are you guys reading? . . . #books #reading #happy

🥰 my sweet little boy! I managed to snap this in an all too quick moment of him allowing me to give affection. He’s taken to biting to vent his frustrations which is something I’m keen to discourage- any pointers!? . . I wanted to share that Liam’s had endless cradle cap since he was born, and it would really itch and frustrate him- some nights he’d scratch it til it bled. It was horrible to see him so bothered by it. I tried everything from Apple Cider Vinegar to coconut oil (his head became a sort of delicious salad dressing zone)... I was gonna get the special cradle cap shampoo but the lady I spoke to in Boots said it can cause burning etc so... long story short, the answer is @vaselineuk. I slathered it on him, left it overnight, washed in mild baby shampoo, repeated for a couple of days and the cradle cap finally softened and eventually disappeared. His hair is coming through now and there’s been no more scratching :) . . . #motherandson #ukmum #cradlecap #vaseline #cradlecapcure #love

One downside of living in the countryside (and still not being able to drive 😐) is the lack of upbeat, varied exercise classes. I really struggle to self motivate but have discovered @popsugarfitness and it’s genuinely changed my life! . . I’ve never been athletic (or even particularly energetic) but since I stopped trying to change how I look and instead focused on exercising to make me feel good, I’ve found a new love for it. I want to be fit and active my whole life, not have outstanding abs for a few years then be so riddled with injuries that I burn out and retire to the sofa. . Anyway, @popsugarfitness is great cos it’s free and all you need is access to @youtube. Loads of the videos don’t require you to have any equipment either, and there’s a range of styles, trainers and length of videos. Works for me! . . I’m just about to do this Tabata video- wish me luck! And I’d love to hear your thoughts on fitness/ self motivation. . . #popsugar #youtube #tabata #hiit #exercise #fitness #wellness #saturday

It’s another wild Friday night in my house (in bed by 9). A while ago I was sent some @myjinmee makeup remover pads ( #gifted) and they’re really fab. They feel so silky on your skin but you still get a good clean (as you can see!) . . I use @garnieruk Miscellar cleansing water which works on everything- waterproof mascara, lipstick and foundation- so my skin can breathe easy overnight.

Hers and his. Liam and I went for a ‘deconstructed’ approach to our @meatlessfarm burgers today- less to do with being fancy and more to do with being lazy/messy in equal measures. I had mine with vine tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil, he had his with toast and avocado. You know you love someone when you sacrifice your portion of avocado for them. . Anyway, these burgers are a real game changer, 100% plant based and soooo good, especially for a speedy meal. It’s things like this that make avoiding meat really easy, you don’t have to think hard about which beans and grains make whole proteins, which is cool and all but when you’re knackered and pressed for time can be a bit much! Anyway I highly recommend. And I’m not being paid to do so 😊 . . . #meatlessfarm #plantbased #veganburger #delicious #tomato #avocado #ukmum #toddlermeals

Me, Anna, our boys and her girl! . . . We’ve come a long way since English lessons in sixth form and night out in London.

I’ve just started using these beautiful @miicosmetics products- skin shimmer, powder, eye colour crayon and (waterproof) mascara. I love makeup that enhances what you have naturally, and a big plus here is it tells you on the box how to use each product! Perfect for someone like me who needs a little guidance in the beauty department. They were very kindly #gifted. Also very kindly gifted were these roses by my landlady!

Hanging out with my boy. He’s got four teeth coming through so yesterday was a non-stop grizzle fest, but today he’s been happier and isn’t clinging to me like a limpet. I keep thinking ‘tomorrow I’ll get some tasks done’, and as the day draws to a close I optimistically think I’ll have the energy once he’s gone to bed- days blend into weeks and I don’t know where the time is going! It can be frustrating when you want to be productive. But I have to remember, being available to and focused on my little boy is my main job from now until... school? He leaves home? An incoherent post but one that reflects my scatty exhausted mum brain. . . . #mumbrain #toddler #whatdayisit #ineedmyrootsdone

#tbt a year ago... . . I’ve been so fortunate in that breastfeeding has been a mostly great experience. Aside from the initial agony of the improper latch and the misery of first 🦷 I’ve found it really convenient. We’re down to one feed a day now, and soon we’ll drop that one so he’ll be fully weaned. There have been many hours where I’ve longed for this moment, but now it’s here I’ve got mixed feelings- it’s such a short space of time that they’re really little, and part of me wants to preserve the ‘baby’ feeling for as long as possible. I know I’ll find letting go as each new stage arrives quite a challenge. But having a bit of freedom back will be no bad thing! . . . #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmama #mumsofinsta #weaning #tbt #newborn

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- my god, having a little kid is tiring! The limited, broken sleep just takes the edge off hysteria and replenishes me to a state of being worn out. My brain is about 10x slower than it used to be and I can’t remember much past the last few hours. Caffeine and sugar prop me up through the day and I feel like I’ve aged about a decade. And I’m lucky enough to be really supported by Russ, friends and family! How anyone does this alone is beyond me. It truly takes a village! . . . #thisisparenthood #exhausted #caffeine #sugar #mumsofinsta

Without sounding too earnest, I’m trying to educate myself about environmental issues a bit more. I went to a refill shop the other day and think it’s such a great idea to help reduce plastic and promote a more eco-conscious way of living. I’m definitely nowhere near as aware as I could be, but here are some of the smaller changes we’re making to do a bit- . . 1) avoid meat on weekdays 2) opt for non-dairy milk/yoghurt (except, admittedly for Liam) 3) take our own bags when shopping 4) try and avoid products with unnecessary plastic packaging 5) walk instead of drive where possible (I still don’t have a driving license so that’s a slight cheat!) . . I’d love to hear if anyone has anything to add, things they do/don’t do to help our planet. . . . #gogreen #weekdayvegetarian #refillrevolution

Pre 7am walks are the new theme of my life... I’m pulling a face to distract myself from the bone aching exhaustion that comes from Liam’s transition from baby to toddler. On the bright side, he’s learning to walk and it’s adorable. On the less bright side, he’s going through a sleep regression so I’m up every hour of the night. 😑 this emoji perfectly captures my face when it’s closing in on itself with tiredness and I’m leaning over the cot, barely able to muster the energy to go ‘shhhh’. . Liam’s wearing his dad’s Billy Connolly beanie and I’m in my fave @andotherstories jumper. I’m also smothered in @cliniqueuk to avoid looking like the undead. . . . #sleepregression #toddler #beanie #andotherstories #cantfeelmyface #clinique #sendchocolate

He’ll do anything for a snack, just like his mum 🙂 He’s going for a bit of homemade blueberry muffin, made from oats, coconut and sweetened with banana. They’re so tasty that I can’t resist them either! We’re really keen that liam doesn’t get too much of a sweet tooth and reject his veggies. Btw how how cute is he in his little sunhat!? It’s by @iplaybaby and too adorable. . . . #sugarfree #blueberrymuffin #sunhat #cute

I feel so lucky to have met this guy and for him to like me. Even enough to agree to spend his life with me. I’ve never felt so seen and understood- whether it’s making snide remarks about things on tv, evening trips to Tesco to humour each other’s chocolate addiction or working on creative projects together, I really feel like we’re on each other’s team. That doesn’t mean we don’t get on each other’s t*ts sometimes, fail to communicate effectively or always be our ‘best selves’, but we’re committed. Thanks for helping me choose this @accessorize hat. Please don’t leave me for someone more sporty @russbain1. . . . #couple #married #love #husbandandwife #hats

Liam’s first birthday party ! I’m a bit late posting this but wanted to share- we had such a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. We had a raspberry theme as they’re Liam’s fave thing to eat and look at this unbelievable cake made by @gaylecatherine87 - get the girl on @britishbakeoff! . I spent a lot of time over the last few days remembering the first hours spent with Liam. Where I was hardly able to move, had to ask a nurse to show me how to change his nappy, didn’t really know how to hold this tiny delicate precious little creature. It really does go by so quickly!! . . . #oneyearold #birthday #party #mums #greatbritishbakeoff #raspberries

This time last year... . . I can’t get my head around the fact that a year ago, my wonderful little boy was gearing up to face the world! Russ took this pic of me in labour, which took 30+ hours and was eventful to say the least. There’s so much emphasis on the birth but really that’s the easy bit compared to the job of parenting! I can now say I’ve not had a properly good night’s sleep since Liam was born. I’m brimming with sentiment and emotion, already nostalgic for the excitement of having our newborn 😢💗 . . . #labour #birth #royalfreehospital

Here’s a mini poem I wrote on a ‘hike’ (it was a walk) in Los Angeles a couple of years ago... the freedom days pre-baby. I have no idea how I used to fill all that time other than wandering, writing poems and hunting down gf/df treats. Anyway, on this walk I found myself alone on the trail, looking over the valley in the fierce midday sun and felt the beginnings of Johnny Panic. I felt like prey, and had to steady myself by tapping into The Good. . . . #hike #wanderlust #Losangeles #safety #prayer #poetry #poem

16.05.2019... One year ago today was this one’s due date! He ended up arriving three days later. Last year when the evening of the 16th drew to a close, it was a bit of an anticlimax- it felt as though he’d not showed up for his own party. But now he’s here, beaming, busy, wilful and wild, I can’t remember life before him 💗 . . . #busybee #nearlyone #son #mumsofinsta

I know I know, you’ve seen the ‘girl walking in nature from the back’ shot a bazillion times before. I swear this wasn’t posed, if that helps. We went for a woodland wander among the bluebells today and nowhere makes me happier or feel more at ease than being in a forest. . . . Yesterday’s page in the 365 Tao book was about meditation and it struck a chord- I don’t know the rules about copyright so I’ll paraphrase- it said that just sitting still is a meditation. All the complex fancy apparatus that may come to mind, or things like the lotus position (ouch), setting up a ‘sacred space’ complete with Buddha statue and incense etc, may not be achievable. If you’re anything like me, you may feel that unless you can do minimum half an hour then you’ve failed at it. Actually, even two minutes is enough. It doesn’t have to be some grand event where you transcend the earthly plane, astrally project or even manage to ‘clear your mind’ (impossible!). It’s just about relaxing, calming, coming back to yourself and should be an extremely pleasant experience. Ps there’s loads of apps (a lot of them free) that help guide you in meditation, like @headspace, @calm, @themindfulnessapp and so on. Do something kind for yourself and take a few mins to return to your natural state x . . . #meditation #forest #bluebells #astralprojection #justkidding

A few more snaps from the other day... one magic moment where Liam looks content in my arms, the next where my affections are unwanted and lastly him resorting to violence. . . I joke, but this was actually one of the hardest lessons of motherhood - I thought it would be a non-stop love-fest, where my baby would love nothing more than endless cuddles- the reality is I have a very busy little boy who’s constantly on the go and keen to roam free. I struggled for a while, wondering if our bond wasn’t strong enough, if I was doing something wrong, if he just didn’t like me- etc. I’ll put a lot of this thinking down to being crazed with tiredness. It gets so much more rewarding the older he gets, and the laughs, smiles and our little ‘chats’ now are the light of my life. . . . #thisisparenthood #mumandson #parenting #mumsofinsta

Yesterday we went to another beautiful farm. I’m delighted to announce that I can now add peacock wrangler and hula master to my CV (!)

My sweet little boy bursts my heart with love and happiness! His laugh! 🥰 I think he’s going through a leap cos he’s learning all sorts of new tricks, which is fab but also means he’s up at 4am (not fab). . This @chicco_international baby walker is one of the best pieces of equipment going- it allows him to cruise around and be active while also staying safe!

The early days! Last summer was a scorcher. Liam was a couple of months old, relaxing with his Social Baby mobile and I didn’t know which way was up. I spent hours on the sofa, whether feeding him or taking the opportunity to rest- always with the trusty BWT water filter to hand as I was constantly so thirsty! I remember thinking that it would never get easier - but slowly things changed, Liam started feeding less and sleeping more. Now there’s all the fun of a very inquisitive and energetic little boy who’s into absolutely everything! . . . #tbt #earlydays #mumsofinsta #twomonthsold #stayhydrated #thisisparenthood

Helicopter parent. . I’m trying to find the balance between allowing my boy to explore the world and test his strength while preventing him from shoving chokable items into his mouth or throwing himself headfirst off the sofa. . He’s rapidly evolving from a baby into a toddler, which I can’t quite get my head around. I don’t think there’s enough caffeine/sugar in the world to find the energy to keep up! . . . #baby #toddler #shadow #firststeps #exhausted #mumandson #mumsofinsta

I really love living out of London. It’s fun to dip in and visit the city but having more space, clean air and a little garden is fantastic! Turns out all the cliches are true. I really enjoy doing the weeding, possibly over enthusiastically and accidentally pulling up the odd plant, but find it to be very therapeutic and quite a handy metaphor for mental wellbeing! . . . #bankholiday #garden #countryside #happy

The last time I saw Beau, I was single and had dreams of moving to San Francisco and being a poet. I’m not sure how well that would have worked out.

BEES! 🐝 . . Bees are great- they pollinate a substantial amount of our plants and crops, so we depend on them being around. These days, they’re in short supply and overall need a bit of TLC. I heard that if you see a one who looks dead/dying, it may just be in need of some sugar. This guy was on his back on my windowsill, legs in the air, and I thought - not a problem, I got this. So I procured some sugar water, flipped him over carefully and led him to it. I felt pretty smug when I watched him suck some up and begin to get some of his old sass back. That is, until I did a bit of Google research, and was sickened to read that bees must only be given white sugar as brown sugar (what I’d given him) can cause bee dysentery. Great. I’d felt like David Attenborough, but my ego swiftly deflated when I realised this poor guy would likely come to a miserable undignified end. I wanted to share this so no one else makes the same mistake! . . . #bees #savethebees #sugar #sugarwater #demerera #disaster

For me, the hardest bit of going for a run is putting my trainers on. Not literally 🤦‍♀️- I mean, once they’re on, I’m committed to actually doing it rather than loitering and talking about it until I decide I’m too tired. . Currently I go for a speedy run/gentle jog (same thing) once or twice a week, and it helps me so much with mood, sleep and general well-being. And I always feel better after. Headphones essential. (Are you the same?) . My trainers are @nike , leggings are @sweatybetty, top is @hm and all important sports bra (especially post partum!) is @nikewomen. . . . #nike #sweatybetty #handm #run #jog #postpartum #fitness #health

Had such a beautiful wander among the bluebells with the boys. Here’s a sweet moment punctuated by some truly ear splitting screaming as a result of teething (I think). He’s 8 down, 12 to go. I wouldn’t say I’m wishing the time away- just quite looking forward to them all being through! (All I can hear is Louis Walsh going ‘good news- you’re all true’) . . I’m really into wearing yellow atm, and this @topshop jumper is the perfect blend of bright sunny colour but cosy enough for cooler days. The black skinny jeans are also Topshop, and apparently ‘only for the fashion brave’, which is me all bloody day. . . #teething #earsringing #bluebells #topshop #blonde #fashion #fashionblogger #blonde

    Me, Anna, our boys and her girl! . . . We’ve come a long way since English lessons in sixth form and night out in London. I’m in awe of how incredible this woman is- extremely talented, kind, thoughtful, an extraordinary mama and friend. She’s helped me so much with all things baby. We loved celebrating Freddie’s birthday! So lucky to know you 💗 . . . #friends #ukmums #babies #toddlers #happy

    I’m celebrating the end of the week with a Vego bar, heaven in edible form. Hands down the most delicious treat! I used to be hideously addicted to Nutella before I had to stop eating dairy, but Vego bars actually surpass it! Happy tastebuds, happy tummy :) . . . #vegobar #dairyfree #hazelnut #delicious #friday

    I’ve just started using these beautiful @miicosmetics products- skin shimmer, powder, eye colour crayon and (waterproof) mascara. I love makeup that enhances what you have naturally, and a big plus here is it tells you on the box how to use each product! Perfect for someone like me who needs a little guidance in the beauty department. They were very kindly #gifted. Also very kindly gifted were these roses by my landlady! You know you don’t live in London anymore when that happens! . . . #gifts #roses #landlady #miicosmetics #makeup #makeupideas #makeuplife

    Hanging out with my boy. He’s got four teeth coming through so yesterday was a non-stop grizzle fest, but today he’s been happier and isn’t clinging to me like a limpet. I keep thinking ‘tomorrow I’ll get some tasks done’, and as the day draws to a close I optimistically think I’ll have the energy once he’s gone to bed- days blend into weeks and I don’t know where the time is going! It can be frustrating when you want to be productive. But I have to remember, being available to and focused on my little boy is my main job from now until... school? He leaves home? An incoherent post but one that reflects my scatty exhausted mum brain. . . . #mumbrain #toddler #whatdayisit #ineedmyrootsdone

    #tbt a year ago... . . I’ve been so fortunate in that breastfeeding has been a mostly great experience. Aside from the initial agony of the improper latch and the misery of first 🦷 I’ve found it really convenient. We’re down to one feed a day now, and soon we’ll drop that one so he’ll be fully weaned. There have been many hours where I’ve longed for this moment, but now it’s here I’ve got mixed feelings- it’s such a short space of time that they’re really little, and part of me wants to preserve the ‘baby’ feeling for as long as possible. I know I’ll find letting go as each new stage arrives quite a challenge. But having a bit of freedom back will be no bad thing! . . . #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmama #mumsofinsta #weaning #tbt #newborn

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- my god, having a little kid is tiring! The limited, broken sleep just takes the edge off hysteria and replenishes me to a state of being worn out. My brain is about 10x slower than it used to be and I can’t remember much past the last few hours. Caffeine and sugar prop me up through the day and I feel like I’ve aged about a decade. And I’m lucky enough to be really supported by Russ, friends and family! How anyone does this alone is beyond me. It truly takes a village! . . . #thisisparenthood #exhausted #caffeine #sugar #mumsofinsta

    Without sounding too earnest, I’m trying to educate myself about environmental issues a bit more. I went to a refill shop the other day and think it’s such a great idea to help reduce plastic and promote a more eco-conscious way of living. I’m definitely nowhere near as aware as I could be, but here are some of the smaller changes we’re making to do a bit- . . 1) avoid meat on weekdays 2) opt for non-dairy milk/yoghurt (except, admittedly for Liam) 3) take our own bags when shopping 4) try and avoid products with unnecessary plastic packaging 5) walk instead of drive where possible (I still don’t have a driving license so that’s a slight cheat!) . . I’d love to hear if anyone has anything to add, things they do/don’t do to help our planet. . . . #gogreen #weekdayvegetarian #refillrevolution

    Pre 7am walks are the new theme of my life... I’m pulling a face to distract myself from the bone aching exhaustion that comes from Liam’s transition from baby to toddler. On the bright side, he’s learning to walk and it’s adorable. On the less bright side, he’s going through a sleep regression so I’m up every hour of the night. 😑 this emoji perfectly captures my face when it’s closing in on itself with tiredness and I’m leaning over the cot, barely able to muster the energy to go ‘shhhh’. . Liam’s wearing his dad’s Billy Connolly beanie and I’m in my fave @andotherstories jumper. I’m also smothered in @cliniqueuk to avoid looking like the undead. . . . #sleepregression #toddler #beanie #andotherstories #cantfeelmyface #clinique #sendchocolate

    Keeping this guy hydrated in the heat is no walk in the park. He’s just not that into water 😩 buuuut he tried melon for the first time today and loved it, hoping that counts a bit !? . . . #hydration #melon #tasty

    He’ll do anything for a snack, just like his mum 🙂 He’s going for a bit of homemade blueberry muffin, made from oats, coconut and sweetened with banana. They’re so tasty that I can’t resist them either! We’re really keen that liam doesn’t get too much of a sweet tooth and reject his veggies. Btw how how cute is he in his little sunhat!? It’s by @iplaybaby and too adorable. . . . #sugarfree #blueberrymuffin #sunhat #cute
  • Rachel H-W

    I feel so lucky to have met this guy and for him to like me. Even enough to agree to spend his life with me. I’ve never felt so seen and understood- whether it’s making snide remarks about things on tv, evening trips to Tesco to humour each other’s chocolate addiction or working on creative projects together, I really feel like we’re on each other’s team. That doesn’t mean we don’t get on each other’s t*ts sometimes, fail to communicate effectively or always be our ‘best selves’, but we’re committed. Thanks for helping me choose this @accessorize hat. Please don’t leave me for someone more sporty @russbain1. . . . #couple #married #love #husbandandwife #hats

    Disclaimer: @russbain1 created this work of art, not me! God knows I love a pouch when out and about, but a little spare time and some handy leftovers meant Liam got this today on an outing.

    Liam’s first birthday party ! I’m a bit late posting this but wanted to share- we had such a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. We had a raspberry theme as they’re Liam’s fave thing to eat and look at this unbelievable cake made by @gaylecatherine87 - get the girl on @britishbakeoff! . I spent a lot of time over the last few days remembering the first hours spent with Liam. Where I was hardly able to move, had to ask a nurse to show me how to change his nappy, didn’t really know how to hold this tiny delicate precious little creature. It really does go by so quickly!! . . . #oneyearold #birthday #party #mums #greatbritishbakeoff #raspberries

  • Rachel H-W

    This time last year... . . I can’t get my head around the fact that a year ago, my wonderful little boy was gearing up to face the world! Russ took this pic of me in labour, which took 30+ hours and was eventful to say the least. There’s so much emphasis on the birth but really that’s the easy bit compared to the job of parenting! I can now say I’ve not had a properly good night’s sleep since Liam was born. I’m brimming with sentiment and emotion, already nostalgic for the excitement of having our newborn 😢💗 . . . #labour #birth #royalfreehospital

    Here’s a mini poem I wrote on a ‘hike’ (it was a walk) in Los Angeles a couple of years ago... the freedom days pre-baby. I have no idea how I used to fill all that time other than wandering, writing poems and hunting down gf/df treats. Anyway, on this walk I found myself alone on the trail, looking over the valley in the fierce midday sun and felt the beginnings of Johnny Panic. I felt like prey, and had to steady myself by tapping into The Good. . . . #hike #wanderlust #Losangeles #safety #prayer #poetry #poem

    16.05.2019... One year ago today was this one’s due date! He ended up arriving three days later. Last year when the evening of the 16th drew to a close, it was a bit of an anticlimax- it felt as though he’d not showed up for his own party. But now he’s here, beaming, busy, wilful and wild, I can’t remember life before him 💗 . . . #busybee #nearlyone #son #mumsofinsta

    I know I know, you’ve seen the ‘girl walking in nature from the back’ shot a bazillion times before. I swear this wasn’t posed, if that helps. We went for a woodland wander among the bluebells today and nowhere makes me happier or feel more at ease than being in a forest. . . . Yesterday’s page in the 365 Tao book was about meditation and it struck a chord- I don’t know the rules about copyright so I’ll paraphrase- it said that just sitting still is a meditation. All the complex fancy apparatus that may come to mind, or things like the lotus position (ouch), setting up a ‘sacred space’ complete with Buddha statue and incense etc, may not be achievable. If you’re anything like me, you may feel that unless you can do minimum half an hour then you’ve failed at it. Actually, even two minutes is enough. It doesn’t have to be some grand event where you transcend the earthly plane, astrally project or even manage to ‘clear your mind’ (impossible!). It’s just about relaxing, calming, coming back to yourself and should be an extremely pleasant experience. Ps there’s loads of apps (a lot of them free) that help guide you in meditation, like @headspace, @calm, @themindfulnessapp and so on. Do something kind for yourself and take a few mins to return to your natural state x . . . #meditation #forest #bluebells #astralprojection #justkidding

    A few more snaps from the other day... one magic moment where Liam looks content in my arms, the next where my affections are unwanted and lastly him resorting to violence. . . I joke, but this was actually one of the hardest lessons of motherhood - I thought it would be a non-stop love-fest, where my baby would love nothing more than endless cuddles- the reality is I have a very busy little boy who’s constantly on the go and keen to roam free. I struggled for a while, wondering if our bond wasn’t strong enough, if I was doing something wrong, if he just didn’t like me- etc. I’ll put a lot of this thinking down to being crazed with tiredness. It gets so much more rewarding the older he gets, and the laughs, smiles and our little ‘chats’ now are the light of my life. . . . #thisisparenthood #mumandson #parenting #mumsofinsta

    Yesterday we went to another beautiful farm. I’m delighted to announce that I can now add peacock wrangler and hula master to my CV (!) It was too hot for tights and they clung thickly and stickily to my legs #thestruggleisreal but we had a wonderful time nonetheless. . My top is @hm, skirt is @urbanoutfitters and sunglasses are @lespecs. And boots are half cropped out but were #gifted by @blowfishmalibu 💗 . . #farm #tights #peacock #hula #family

    This is one of my all time favourite books (and possessions!). It’s come with me wherever I’ve travelled. I love having a succinct and beautifully expressed spiritual take on different aspects of life to see me through each day of the year. I really recommend it! . . . #taoism #spiritualguidance #book

    My sweet little boy bursts my heart with love and happiness! His laugh! 🥰 I think he’s going through a leap cos he’s learning all sorts of new tricks, which is fab but also means he’s up at 4am (not fab). . This @chicco_international baby walker is one of the best pieces of equipment going- it allows him to cruise around and be active while also staying safe! Hope everyone’s weekend makes them as happy as Liam is here :) x . . . #chicco #babywalker #happy #laughter #cute #babyboy #love #mumsofinsta #motherandson

    The early days! Last summer was a scorcher. Liam was a couple of months old, relaxing with his Social Baby mobile and I didn’t know which way was up. I spent hours on the sofa, whether feeding him or taking the opportunity to rest- always with the trusty BWT water filter to hand as I was constantly so thirsty! I remember thinking that it would never get easier - but slowly things changed, Liam started feeding less and sleeping more. Now there’s all the fun of a very inquisitive and energetic little boy who’s into absolutely everything! . . . #tbt #earlydays #mumsofinsta #twomonthsold #stayhydrated #thisisparenthood

    Helicopter parent. . I’m trying to find the balance between allowing my boy to explore the world and test his strength while preventing him from shoving chokable items into his mouth or throwing himself headfirst off the sofa. . He’s rapidly evolving from a baby into a toddler, which I can’t quite get my head around. I don’t think there’s enough caffeine/sugar in the world to find the energy to keep up! . . . #baby #toddler #shadow #firststeps #exhausted #mumandson #mumsofinsta

    I really love living out of London. It’s fun to dip in and visit the city but having more space, clean air and a little garden is fantastic! Turns out all the cliches are true. I really enjoy doing the weeding, possibly over enthusiastically and accidentally pulling up the odd plant, but find it to be very therapeutic and quite a handy metaphor for mental wellbeing! . . . #bankholiday #garden #countryside #happy

    The last time I saw Beau, I was single and had dreams of moving to San Francisco and being a poet. I’m not sure how well that would have worked out. Now, just over two years later, I have a wonderful husband, a beautiful son and a life beyond my wildest dreams. I wonder what the next two years have in store!? . . . #friendship #happy #weekend

    BEES! 🐝 . . Bees are great- they pollinate a substantial amount of our plants and crops, so we depend on them being around. These days, they’re in short supply and overall need a bit of TLC. I heard that if you see a one who looks dead/dying, it may just be in need of some sugar. This guy was on his back on my windowsill, legs in the air, and I thought - not a problem, I got this. So I procured some sugar water, flipped him over carefully and led him to it. I felt pretty smug when I watched him suck some up and begin to get some of his old sass back. That is, until I did a bit of Google research, and was sickened to read that bees must only be given white sugar as brown sugar (what I’d given him) can cause bee dysentery. Great. I’d felt like David Attenborough, but my ego swiftly deflated when I realised this poor guy would likely come to a miserable undignified end. I wanted to share this so no one else makes the same mistake! . . . #bees #savethebees #sugar #sugarwater #demerera #disaster

    For me, the hardest bit of going for a run is putting my trainers on. Not literally 🤦‍♀️- I mean, once they’re on, I’m committed to actually doing it rather than loitering and talking about it until I decide I’m too tired. . Currently I go for a speedy run/gentle jog (same thing) once or twice a week, and it helps me so much with mood, sleep and general well-being. And I always feel better after. Headphones essential. (Are you the same?) . My trainers are @nike , leggings are @sweatybetty, top is @hm and all important sports bra (especially post partum!) is @nikewomen. . . . #nike #sweatybetty #handm #run #jog #postpartum #fitness #health

    Had such a beautiful wander among the bluebells with the boys. Here’s a sweet moment punctuated by some truly ear splitting screaming as a result of teething (I think). He’s 8 down, 12 to go. I wouldn’t say I’m wishing the time away- just quite looking forward to them all being through! (All I can hear is Louis Walsh going ‘good news- you’re all true’) . . I’m really into wearing yellow atm, and this @topshop jumper is the perfect blend of bright sunny colour but cosy enough for cooler days. The black skinny jeans are also Topshop, and apparently ‘only for the fashion brave’, which is me all bloody day. . . #teething #earsringing #bluebells #topshop #blonde #fashion #fashionblogger #blonde
