5 Family Friendly Activities in Ancoats with Lovell Homes

There are few things I enjoy more than a family day out in Manchester exploring new places and visiting old favourites. There’s just something about Manchester, it’s a city that feels like a village. The team at Lovell Homes invited us to take a look at their new housing development The Gateway, which is just…

A Day Out at RHS Bridgewater

If you know me you’ll know I head to RHS Bridgewater at any given opportunity. It’s slightly sunny? Off to Bridgewater. Ottie needs a nap but won’t settle? Off to Bridgewater. We have friends coming to visit? Off to Bridgewater. It’s our go to for a day out with…

Home Tour: The Hallway

Time for another home tour post! This time I’m focusing on our hallways and landings. Our house is set over three floors and also has mini landings in between. Joe finds this the perfect canvas for filling with art work and chairs. And I find perfect for filling with…

Home Tour: The Kitchen

The kitchen diner is where we spend most of our time, it’s such a great room. It’s a multi functional space with kitchen, dining area and living room area that leads straight onto the patio in the garden so it’s perfect for life with two small people. I’m so…

Ottie’s Birth Story

This post has been in my Notes since the week Ottie was born but I’ve kept it squirrelled away there until I’ve had time (and mental strength) to read it back and share it. I found my pregnancy with Ottie much harder than with Eva, I had very similar…

Home Tour: The Living Room

I’ve been meaning to share more of our home for months now but time seems to fly by so to give myself some focus, I thought I’d start a blog series with a look into each room. I’m kicking it off with the living room for no other reason…

Making Mealtimes Easy with Mamamade

Mealtimes are generally chaotic in our house. A wild toddler with a penchant for changing her taste every week is tricky enough but adding a newborn into the mix has turned them up to 11.

Our days are a whirlwind, during the week Ottie and I pick Eva up from…
