As Monday’s go ours started out a bit chaotic - Miss M overslept, wanted me to drop her at school (rather than at breakfast club), clothes not dried so hastily throw in tumble, no milk - which then all meant I would be late for work - and then what do you know - train delays 🚆Now I know why I don’t usually work on a Monday! BUT I am today because after work am heading down the road with the girls from office to the #HammersmithApollo to see.... @bananarama_official 🍌🍌🍌The 1980’s teenage girl in me can’t believe her luck. So what’s your fave #bananarama hit? Think mine is Cruel Summer #mondaymorning #daycanonlygetbetter .

Christmas came a little early today as my mum sent Miss M a little parcel with a festive sticker book, a new decoration and a @kinder__chocolate set with a letter kit to 🎅🏻🤶🏻 Written and posted 📮 and yes she really does want an electric toothbrush and a notepad! #lettertosanta #christmaslist #naughtyornice .

About last night! Out-Out on literally a school night means Miss M and I were running late a little this morning but we made school/train by the skin of our teeth.. again! Since going back to work again this year I have kinda made a bit of a pact with myself that going out once a week for work, my blog or for social events is really enough - I cannot and don’t want to do it all anymore 👏 My year’s of going out every night and then getting up for work are over - call me old or boring - but I am just being honest with myself and a night out needs to be either a special occasion, something not to miss or an opportunity to do something far from the norm. AND, that was last night and more! Thank you to @tcspr for inviting me to see the spectacular that is @aladdinlondon - it was possibly one of the best shows I have ever seen. And, yes the Genie rocked! Also managed to squeeze in a pre-theatre late lunch and prosecco with @heleddlavender #aladdinlondon #girlsnightout #mondayfun .

It’s been a long time coming but sooooo worth the wait! When we moved into our home nearly 5 years ago it was kitchen or bathroom - and the kitchen won (as we had a 6mth old and I couldn’t face feeding her in there!) But, after 3 long weeks - where we knocked through our separate toilet (and made 3/4 of it into *sort of* a utility/ linen/laundry cupboard - I finally got to style my bathroom and even take a picture 🛁🚿 Now, I am soaking in all the bubbles - although I have had my moment ruined by a mini bath invader 👧🏼 #ourhome #homeetc #sundayvibes .

The trains tonight have been beyond a nightmare so I’ve yet again missed bedtime...and I️ really just want to get home 🏠 Another girl in Miss M’s class is not being... ‘kind’ shall we say and I️ really don’t want to be that mum that goes in guns-blazing but there has been 3 or 4 incidents now - thankfully quite minor - but it breaks my heart as she can be so sensitive and really is a thoughtful little girl! 👧🏼 What do I️ ‘do’ experienced school mamas of instagram? #myworld #motherhoodthroughinstagram

So Christmas is really starting to set in for me this year... my last 3 have been filled with loss, sadness and grief so I’m determined to make this year our best yet! 🎄🎄 Yesterday I had breakfast with @laplanduk and my first Christmas dinner of the year with @marksandspencer and none other than @paddingtonbear so I feel like I am making a head start! {You can see more over on @juniormagazineonline stories if you fancy} #lovethebear #christmasiscoming #mylifeinsquares .

Happy Monday! I have more things on my to-do list that I would like and zero motivation 📋📨💻 Especially when I would much rather be watching Christmas 24 {one of my not so guilty pleasures...} Speaking of guilty pleasures my other one is these chocolate croissants 🥐🍫 that now come in a box of 2... eek #mondaymood #whatsforbreakfast #bodenbyme .

We queued ✔️ We saw ✔️ We shopped ✔️ Even more stressful than last minute Christmas shopping but at least there was cocktails and canapés! 🍸I got the earrings I went for, not the black dress I hoped for but bagged the leopard coat by sheer luck (top tip wait by the changing room exit!) My shopping partner in crime @eleonore_crompton got the skirt she wanted 💕(run Ellie run!) So all in all a good nights work and today can rest easy! If you are in the queue/crashing the site today may the fashion gods be with you too! #erdemxhm #shoppingfrenzy .

Am I even a blogger or worthy of Instagram? As I have NOT even brought a pumpkin this year let alone been to a pumpkin patch 🎃🎃 I haven’t put the Halloween decorations up either (they are still in box I retrieved from attic) 👻 Failing at Halloween this year - I think it’s because our little flat is upside down with the bathroom re-do - and I mean it I had to wash my hair in the kitchen sink last night - so I am working towards a calm, organised and tidy home for Christmas! So here’s a shot from last year @crockfordbridge and Miss M is one of my fave combos from @tootsamacginty #happyhalloween #pumpkins #throwback .

After a busy few days - picking Miss M up from my mums, another party and the food shop - we decided to make the most of the extra hour and have a long relaxing family day at home 🏠 School uniform is ready, cottage pie is in the oven, the TV is off - so we’re playing a few classic board games and a new one to us called Rummikub - although not sure Miss M has totally got the hang of it but it’s helping her with her numbers either way! Let’s hope the peace and quiet means she will go to bed on time!? #ad #extrahour #rummikub @johnadams_toys

Wish I could say this is our new bathroom floor but I confess it’s a sample tile from @toppstiles that may have to just stay that way as I’m not sure our budget can stretch to the whole floor 😢 What is it with new bathrooms that sucks you dry? Ahh... you thought the cost of the bath and sink was it?! Who knew all this essential things (taps, grout, pipes, bath panels etc.) are the things that add up? 🛁🚰🚿 On another (not so grey) note how gorgeous are these furry slippers from @emuaustralia - I do love a slipper and these have a plastic sole so you - could almost - get away with them on a trip to the shops! #evernatural #fromwhereistand #whatimwearing .

I seem to be having a massive NAVY moment... and in all honesty I did a bit of a smash, grab and pay in @marksandspencer last week and grabbed this blouse as it reminded me of a dress from *whispers* - Hush - that I returned as it just didn’t suit me 😢 I also grabbed a pearl embellished midi skirt - in yep, navy - that I cannot wait to wear, once I’ve picked up a navy cashmere jumper to go with it of course. See navy everywhere. And, despite all those stupid fashion rules it goes great it black - as proved by Dior all those decades ago. Actually, it also goes with dusty pink, grey, red, khaki... dare I say ‘navy is most definitely the new black?’ #ootd #whatimwearing #dresslikeamum {Fave lippy at mo 💄 Red Heddy @rodinoliolusso} .

So here it is our first half-term... we made it through the first term almost unscathed (well apart from the day I slipped in the rain and pulled her over, those mornings running before the bell rings and forgetting her water bottle on a few occasions) I’m planning a post about what I’ve learned as a first time school mum (no. 1 being timekeeping!) ⏰ But for now we’re both enjoying this week off - Miss M is at my mums and from what I hear being spoilt no end - and me, well I had an lie in yesterday - no work, school run or childcare and I managed until 8.30am 🛌 and have a few nights out this week. Half-term I think I love you! #schoolrunmum #halftermfun #motherhoodthroughinstagram .

This time last week we were staying @theickworthhotel 🌳 Today, I am travelling back from dropping Miss M at nanny’s house for half-term on the National Express 🚎 Swings. Roundabouts. BUT tonight the husband and I have a date...a trip to B&Q, Ikea and Topps Tiles to shop for a new bathroom and I cannot wait! 🛁 Saturday night out and possibly a meal in the Ikea cafe 🇸🇪 Oh yes 😂 #weekendvibes #diy #datenight

Wishing we were still relaxing at the @theickworthhotel rather than my current situation which is staying out of the workmens way (I can see the bathroom taking shape now though...) and sat in the local laundrette trying to get a mountain of washing dry (because dust, everywhere!) Although there is something quite peaceful about a laundrette just wished they served coffee #tuesdaymood .

BLOGGING you either love it or hate it? And, I guess I must love it because yesterday or today is my 4th blogging birthday! 🎉🖥 I say that because I can't quite remember it has become such a woven-in part of my life - it would feel strange not to do it 💕 It helped me focus when I took voluntary redundancy whilst on maternity leave, when I was freelancing with a young baby, gave me the boost to email my previous contacts, lead to work on children's magazines I admired and ultimately helped me have the confidence to apply for my current job @juniormagazineonline which I love! Blogging has brought so many opportunities, experiences and the best part - lovely, amazing, talented - modern work colleagues into my life. Never knock it until you've tried it - it was the best decision I ever made to hit publish! #blogversary #happybirthday #bloggerlife .

This weekend we've been staying @theickworthhotel reviewing for @juniormagazineonline - what can I say, someone has to do it! 🌳 Not only has it been a very welcome break from the chaos at home (bathroom is being re-done finally after months of saving) it's been a much needed 'family' focused getaway at a luxury hotel that makes the kids just as - if not, more - welcome meaning you can truly relax - you know like you do in a @nationaltrust stately home! Just call me Lady from now on... #ickworthhotel #ickworthhouse #familyweekend .
