Although I don't have any children myself, I'm missing my little nieces to absolute pieces and can't imagine how it feels for all the little kiddies staying indoors and maybe not understanding why it's so important. With that in mind, I thought I would make a little list of at home activities to keep both you and the kids busy and having fun.

Anyone following our TTC journey might have realised it's been 3 months since my last update and we're actually only 4 months away from hitting the 3 year mark. As much as looking back now I think time has flown, it also feels like the longest process in the world. Last week we had our very first appointment at the actual fertility clinic which should see us to the end of whatever process we end up going through so I thought now was a good time to update.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

A quote that is currently circulating under such sad circumstances but so desperately needs to be heard. Unfortunately life can be pretty tough as it is but it can also be made so much harder by others. As many people will already know, Caroline Flack recently ended her life in tragic circumstances. It shouldn’t take such a tragic event to make people talk about this or be given a reality check but it’s also, just a good a time as any to drill it in that it really does pay to be kind. Everyone is fighting a battle that you may know absolutely nothing about and your actions can really effect people in the worst imaginable way.

TTC update: Dud tests and stress

It's been 5 long months since I first spoke out about our unknown infertility and although I felt a huge sense of relief that it was finally out in the open - I still felt a sense of fear that people may judge and we may still be given the whole 'you are still young, just wait' speeches. Luckily, everyone (as far as I'm aware anyway) has been super supportive and I couldn't be more grateful. This journey is hard enough as it is and it means the world to have people care about us so much. With that said, this post is just a little update for anyone who is following - or anyone who is going through it themselves.

Date Night at Miller & Carter

Date Night at Miller & Carter

After knowing each other for almost 10 years, being together (this time round) for nearly 4 and being married with a house - date nights have fallen to the back of our minds and don't really seem to happen anymore. However, I got an email yesterday afternoon from Kal (we're not weird, he was at work) telling me to be ready for him getting home in 'something not too fancy but not like jeans and a hoody'. I must admit - I was pretty nervous but I needn't have been because he had booked us a table at Miller & Carter Steakhouse and we had the most amazing evening!

Kitchen Makeover

We have lived in our house for a little over a year now and other than adding a few cushions here and there or putting out a few ornaments, we haven't done anything in the form of decorating. Or should I say, we hadn't up until a couple of weeks ago.

Although we bought a new build, we didn't get to choose paint, tiles or flooring as we were too far into the development process, so our house is literally a blank canvas of magnolia walls, cream carpets and flat grey lino. As nice as that can be, I definitely wanted it to feel more homely and more 'us'. This is also our first ever owned property so its understandable that we want to go wild and make it our own. Starting with the kitchen...
