Here I am in my back yard amongst the straggly (okay, dead) plants
It's the school holidays and my Little Miss has gone to Shropshire for a couple of days to visit her auntie and uncle. Today, I was determined to actually get out of my pyjamas and out of the house, so the Mister and I took Master L out for breakfast.

About a month ago, just before the birth of my lil guy, I was sent the very bag I am sporting to review by a lady named Jocelyn at Sammydress
I call it my 'horse with no name' bag
On browsing the site I was struck by how many cheap pretty dresses and shoes I would be able to buy if I was a size 8 and had size 4 feet. Unfortunately my post baby size 16-18 curves and size 7's are a stretch too far but if you are lucky enough to be all petite and doll-like then it might be worth checking out. I love the bag apart from the fact that the shoulder strap broke the first time I used it, doh!
So how is everyone?
My Little guy is 4 weeks old this week and I could write a whole post on how amazing he is but you know that's not my style, right?! Me and the Mister are in the 'not quite adjusted to the sleep depravation' phase. Your body does strange things during this phase, like shivers uncontrollably even in a centrally heated room. I know there is a general assumption emanating from certain elements of the media that would have you believe that pregnancy, childbirth and life bringing up young children is a beautiful picturesque roller coaster ride to be celebrated and enjoyed like the healthy breakfast of granola and organic yoghurt, which is consumed each morning as part of a healthy, balanced breast feeding diet, which in turn miraculously makes your mummy tummy disappear and your figure snap back into shape. Bah! You know what, it is wonderful, but it is also horrendously emotionally and physically exhausting. For my part, I am just taking each day as it comes. Mainly surviving on quick chocolate hits and full sugar coke to keep me going.
Just keeping it real
Having Netflix also helps with the crazy hours
