I love interior design and as a creative, feel it's important I put my own stamp on our house, so it truly reflects our family, style and eccentricities too!
Those who follow my blog know that settling my youngest son, Alexander, now 2 1/2 into nursery has not been easy for either of us. Having spent most of the first 2 years of his life with either myself or my Mum, initially starting nursery at 2, felt totally foreign to him.
Last Monday saw me attend a formal event in the staggeringly regal, gilded Music Room in Lancaster House by Buckingham Palace, to celebrate the Early Years education sector, hearing from and meeting some of the best practice providers in the UK.
So those who follow me here and on FB know that Alexander, 2 and 4 months, trialled nursery last September after his 2nd birthday and HATED it.
So those reading my blog last week will know, it was a pretty rubbish time for myself and Alexander. A lot of tears were shed (by us both). The nursery induction was hard going, which is inevitable but it was worse than expected, Alexander was beside himself and despite another session with me, he just wasn't settling, my toddler wasn't ready.
Last weekend saw my youngest son, Alexander turn 2, two whole years! I know every parent on the planet says the same thing, but doesn't time fly, people?!
So this morning we took the cute pictures of my toddler Alexander, just 2, in his nursery uniform, the same nursery that his older brother Oliver attended (and pre-school) and loved dearly- and we all smiled sweetly as my nerves were building...another day, another huge milestone for us all (after Oliver started school only last week)!
Welcome back you fabulous bloggers! My son Oliver starts primary school tomorrow (Thursday) so it's a big day for all of us (hence me going live a little early this week).
So my Oliver brings all the girls to the yard...and it's no doubt milk rather than milkshakes senoirs he's still at pre-school but funny nonetheless! Slowly I've noticed over the last few months in particular that young girls are starting to notice him. He's always been popular at nursery (in fact I remember a row of girls standing by the window waving his off aged 2 1/2) but it's becoming a little more obvious now!
Last night was a big deal for my little family in my little world. Baby Alexander aged 10 months old, moved out of our bedroom, into his own.
Family time! You know what they say, "You want something done, give it to a busy person" and that person is usually me...and I love to be busy. I'm so lucky that I'm able to keep up the juggling act of kids ...
The lovely folks at bed-e-byes recently sent us a fabulous bedding set for baby Alexander's cot. Named Bramble and Smudge Coverlet 5 piece Bedding Bale, it's the perfect set for his minimalist style nursery (matching his Mama and Papa's mobile) and the cream colour scheme.
