Getting Ready for Nursery

On the 16th of May I took Sophia along to her enrollment day at nursery, we were only there for about half an hour, and in that half hour she has completely fallen in love with the idea of nursery and all the fun things she will be able to do there when she starts (see her excitement).

We pretty much have to walk past the nursery building most days when we are walking round to my Nana's house and every single time we walk past she gets excited all over again!
We're now into the last week before she starts and it's been making me pretty emotional, but at the same time I am very ready for her to be starting too. I can tell she's been getting pretty bored with our daily routines and she needs to get out and make some little friends and have some time away from me.

To get her ready and to make things feel more real for her I decided to go out and grab a few new outfits for her first week there! On top of that she got a new pair of vans too, I wanted some plain black shoes that she'll be able to wear with most outfits and these seem to do the job.

I am most likely gonna be a crying wreck on her first day but it's fine! One day she'll be heading off to College and I'll be wishing it was her first day at nursery again.

It's a late post this week but there has been a lot going on, however I am trying to make the blog more of a priority!

Have an amazing week 😃

Going Dairy Free.

Quick disclaimer for this post, all information has come from my own research and advice from my doctor. There are photos on this post that show my skin when my acne was pretty bad so if that's something that could be uncomfortable then maybe this post isn't for you.

In around May 2017 I had decided that enough was enough when it came to my skin, I was sick of not being able to wear t-shirts or anything that showed off my shoulders/back, covering myself up all the time especially on warmer days wasn't ideal and my confidence was at a low. I had done some of my own research and found a lot of videos and articles that linked acne to dairy products, there was so many youtube videos which showed how much people's skin cleared up after they cut dairy out of their diet. I sat on it for a few days and continued to do research until I decided to just go for it, I ordered a big food shop to the house with nothing that contained dairy, I've found new butters and milks that I…

The Week off

Last week while I was working I was thinking that I definitely had a holiday coming soon but I had completely forgotten about it, so you can imagine my surprise when I was told that my holiday was actually this week! I wish I could say I've been super productive, I did originally plan to decorate my bedroom but with the time off being quite last minute I didn't want to hurry around and get everything I needed for decorating when I could actually just relax for once.

Monday to Friday were pretty standard, Sophia still had nursery so it was quite odd having time to just chill out and not be getting ready to leave for work, I also tried to make time for friends that I don't get to see that often which was quite lovely. After nursery on Friday my mum came through to pick Sophia up and take her away for the weekend, so it was even more weird not having to wake up super early on Saturday for either work or Soph.

Last night Ruairi and I had a wedding reception to go to with some f…

A look back on October

Sophia has been put to bed, the housework has been partially done and I've had a long day so it's finally time for me to sit down and talk to myself on here!

Another month crossed off of 2017, October was a good one! A wee holiday from work, lots of time with Sophia and HALLOWEEN! I wish I had lots of stories for each week of the month but life hasn't been that exciting really, I think the main reason I've enjoyed it so much is probably just because it has been nice and quiet and it is nice sometimes to just not have anything big going on. I'm loving the darker nights, warmer clothes and all the hot drinks I can have whenever I like.

Last Saturday after working a 9 hour shift at work I had to quickly get home and ready for a Halloween party with Ruairi and some of his friends and family, sadly with having limited time to get ready, the 10 minute make up was scary enough so I didn't take any photos that night, I went there with the mindset that I'd be leaving…
