The First Week

This week has been such an exciting one as Sophia has now started nursery! I can't tell you well enough how excited she has been to get started and that really showed on her first day. On Tuesday we went along for only an hour, I sat in the room with her (she did not care that I was there) and filled out some forms, all the fun stuff! When it came to leaving I practically had to carry her out of the building, she was not having it and would have stayed there all day if she was able to.

Day 2 was a little different, we went along for about 2 hours this time and instead of me being in the room so she could see me, I had to explain to her that I would be out in the hall having a wee coffee just incase she needed me, did she need me? she did not. Again it was a little hard pulling her away from all the children and toys to go home, but we bribed her with a book to borrow for the night and that seemed to work pretty well.

Thursday and Friday were a lot more emotional (only for me ofc) as those were the days that I had to just drop her off, say bye and then head off home for a couple of hours! Going back and finding out how lovely she had been to the other children and hearing how well she had done was the best feeling ever.

I now have a toddler who is in nursery, crazy crazy thing to come to terms with! But she loves it there so much and I couldn't have asked for to settle in any better.

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…
