I joined in with the inspiring Ali Edward's blog challenge of 'A day in the life...' and was pleased that it worked out to be my day off as they are far more exciting than a working day. I like to pack in as much fun as possible to make it all worthwhile. I also dusted off the 'big' camera and so some of these photos are better quality too!
So it went like this...
Favourite breakfast of the moment - Lemon Marmalade on toast
A quick clean of the kitchen whilst The Baby munches on his toast
Special delivery from freeprintapp.com I highly recommend getting this app as you can get 50 free prints a month and they are really good quality and you can even get instagrams and just trim the border (don't opt for the pricier square option)
Catching up with Jill Sprott's latest adventures over at Two Peas - I love all her layouts and her videos. I feel a connection with her as she is an English teacher too and I love all her journalling and the little details on her layouts.
A bit of Project Life whilst watching the video as I always multitask. The Baby is having his morning nap. I am recording his first passport photo - it was a cute one!
Put my face on as I have a certain amount of make-up I have to wear every day to feel presentable. Basically some cover-up to paint away the sleep deprivation and some bronzer to put some colour in my cheeks.
The Baby wanted to do some hoovering but we had to run to my opticians appointment.
But first the ever tricky task of finding a matching pair of socks. Where do baby socks go? Really!
In the lift heading to Boots
In one of those dodgy little lifts in Boots where you have to hold onto the button till you have reached your floor. Don't you hate those ones?
Waiting for much longer than anticipated. Had to take him out of the pram as he was getting impatient and so he had a crawl around. He made a new friend who was saying to everyone, "this is Ellis. He is really curious and loves to crawl. Have you met him?" It was very sweet - I love it when anyone makes a fuss over my baby!
A quick snooze in the car for baby. We are doing well with naps today - that means he will sleep well tonight. Result!
Met these lovely ladies at Salts Mill (well I didn't just happen to meet them - it was arranged)
We shared the yummiest goats cheese, beetroot and chutney pizza
The tastiest chocolate and banana milkshakes - mine was chocolate (I say was as it didn't last long)
I had some newborn baby cuddles - my Baby didn't get jealous as he was too busy nosying at everyone else!
New mum looking great on a few hours sleep
Afterwards some fun in the kids book section
First taste of a raspberry - turns out he's not a fan!
They managed to get the cupboard open and Nancy managed to get in it at one point
Discussing world literature around the table
Hi blue eyes!
The rest of the evening saw me watching Sister Act and crafting.
I am still loving Project Life and have lots of layouts to share. It really is therapy for my as I love pretty paper, stamping, photos and the stories behind them and I love just capturing and documenting our everyday life.
What do you like to do on your days off?
