I have had a couple of people email me about the pictures I have up in my bedroom and how did I go about making them. While I wish I could claim they were originally thought of by myself I did see them on both Pinterest and also Instagram but I cannot for the life of me remember which account it was so if you spot this post please let me know…credit where credit is due of course 🙂
Skipped To Do List
Come the end of the month I always see a round-up on different blogs I follow of what people recommend and what they have been reading/baking/watching etc. I find these very interesting as not only do I think to myself ‘ohh that eyeshadow looks great’ but I also just can’t quite understand where these people actually get the time to do all these things in one whole month – talk about multitasking mummies; very impressive indeed im in awe!
This all got me thinking about the summer being over and what I had achieved from the list that I set myself after coming from holidays in May. In short the answer is…NOTHING.. I cant even find the written list. We got a new kitchen in while we were away and I think the list may have gone in the skip along with all my other dreams of an organised home, true fact!
My plan with this blog is to keep it real. There is no point just showing all the rainbows and butterflies. Every other person out there knows life isn’t always that way especially in a house with 2 full-time working parents and a toddler who decided she wants to play with everything at once. I think burgled houses may be more tidy at times, awful to say but true to a certain extent. I will even admit sometimes, just sometimes when Olivia goes to bed we don’t even tidy up her mess as she will only drag it all out again in the morning; does this make us bad parents?!
In light of all these wonderful blogs that have achieved so much in a month im going to own up to all that we havent achieved in three. Oh gosh here goes…
The first blog is always the most tricky isnt it?! so ill set the scene..
My name is Jillian. I’m a first time mum to our daughter Olivia who is nearly 18 months (sob…where did the time go ) Based in Northern Ireland and ive been married for 5 years to my delicious husband, if you were to ask him, it definitely feels like a lot longer at times 🙂
