Mum 1 - Cancer 0

Cancer. When you hear that word, it fills you with an overwhelming sense of fear. Fear of the unknown. You hear so many stories about the dreaded C word, thankfully many positive ones now but, unfortunately, the bad ones spring to mind first. Well they did for me anyway. When we found out that Mum had cancer in March it hit me like a tonne of bricks. The thought of my Mum (or Dad) ever not being there was so scary and upsetting. They only live around the corner from us and I pretty much speak to my Mum every day. She does SO much for me and I will forever be grateful for that, I'd be lost without her. My Mum, on the other hand, took the news amazingly well, and has continued to be so brave, optimistic and her usual happy self throughout the whole ordeal. Cancer well and truly picked a fight with the wrong person.

Elsie's 10 Month Update

As I write this, there's a pile of 9-12 month clothes ready for selling on IG, some Clarks shoes in the corner of the room and a newly attached harness on the high chair. All reminders that my baby is growing up right before my eyes. This past month she feels like she's grown up so much and (as with any development with her or Ollie) it fills me with a mixture of happiness seeing her grow and develop but also so bloody emotional that she's not my squishy newborn any more... far from it!

Siblings Project // June 2017

It's so funny to watch these two at the moment. One minute they're thick as thieves (playing together, mimicking each other and just generally being bloody cute) and the next, Ollie is pushing her away because she's after his food or shutting his bedroom door so she can't play with his toys. Me and Aled have got two days off at the end of the month and I can't wait to have some proper family days out with the two of them.
