I feel like I grew up in a really special time, where more and more women were getting a seat at the table. Taking on big roles in movies and being seen in the media as more than a mother/wife/girlfriend. Of course, there is still a LONG way to go until we have an equal society, particularly for women of colour. In spite of this, I do feel thankful for the amazing role models I can identify with in the media and think it’s okay to celebrate that, whilst acknowledging that there’s still work to do.     Flowers Direct…

Matt isn’t even 30 yet and to be honest his present recieving days are already numbered, not because I don’t want to get him nice things, but because he’s ruddy hard to buy for! His interests aren’t just causal hobbies, they’re passions. He doesn’t do half measures, if he likes something he’s all in – totally immersed in the subject or activity.

Ah sleep, how I miss you. I have always been someone who absolutely loves to sleep, long and hard. I’ve never been a morning person and becoming a mum hasn’t changed that at all! Despite being nearly two Luisa has never ever slept for a full night. I think the longest stretch has been 5 hours so it’s fair to say that I’m a little sleep deprived… Someone else who’s beyond exhausted is my lovely friend Laura who blogs at Life with Baby Kicks. Laura tagged me to take part in the bedtime tag, answering 10 questions about my bedtime…

If you’ve been keeping up with my Bostik Blogger posts you’ll know I started out with the intention of using this experience to do more crafting with Luisa. Our first make were some Valentines cards that weren’t very impressive – Luisa was fully involved and had a lot of fun but i’ll not be getting emails asking to buy them anytime soon! My second post was a floral springtime wreath which I think looks pretty epic but Luisa didn’t have a look in and it left me with a second degree burn. This month I’ve found a happy medium producing…
