Love Day 2018

How has your week been?
We are all getting used to the faster pace of life now that we have all 3 boys at school and adjusting to our new routines +  after school schedules. So it was nice to have an excuse to pause in the middle of the week and sprinkle a bit of love around to celebrate Valentine's Day.

I always get the boys a Valentines card (Simon too) and this year I decided to make a cute heart shaped cake with lolly kisses for their afternoon tea. 

I made a fun pink gin + raspberry tonic before dinner as a nod to "Love Day" 

I love to celebrate Valentine's Day even though some find it too commercial. I think it is the perfect excuse to say I love you to the special person/people in your life. 

Or even practice a bit of self love - like this relaxing milk bath I took the other day. Bliss!

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

We don't make a huge fuss of Valentine's Day around here but I do always like to acknowledge it. Who doesn't want to celebrate a day all about love?!!
Usually I give Simon and the boys a card and maybe some chocolates to share as a little gesture in the spirit of "love day"

I've put together a few cute gift ideas + sweet decorations to celebrate Valentine's Day...

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?

Back to School 2018

The holidays are over and we are well and truly back to reality. 

This year is an extra special one as it is the first time in 15 years that I haven't had a little one at home with me. Noah started "Big School" last week and I can't believe how the years have flown and how grown up everyone is.

Jasper has started year 5 at a new school (the same school as Finn) and Finn is in year 10 this year.
We've got an exciting year ahead of us all as we get used to our new routines.

I am getting back into the lunch box habit and trying to come up with ideas that are delicious and will get the boys to eat their lunch. Noah has been a bit spoilt as he has had hot lunches at his pre school for the last 2 years. So I'm looking for inspiration to keep the school lunches interesting!

I like the Bento Box lunchbox for Noah as it gives him various bits n pieces to choose from.
I bought mine at Lime Tree Kids, there are so many to choose from.

Here are a couple of lunch ideas that have caught my eye......

I hope your school year got off to a great start! Did anyone's little ones start this year?
