Confessions Of A Mummy

Follow my story as i journey into the exciting new world of parenthood following the birth of our gorgeous little boy, jack.

New dark locks, miss my blonde hair so much but with superkatnip as my hair inspiration I know I’ve done the right thing. Plus, my hair already feels so much more moisturised and in better condition.

Not really feeling myself right now as I’ve had super light ash blonde hair now for almost 8 years but I’m slowly but surely getting used to it πŸ’Starting to dabble in contouring my make up now too, slightly addicted such a good make up technique to learn.

Fun at the Military show on Saturday, supporting Daddy & the other Fusiliers.

I still cannot believe it’s been over a year already since Chris was deployed to Afghanistan, so glad that chapter is over in our lives now and we are now a proper family rather than being thousands of miles apart.

Cannot believe I made it on to the stylisheve list of best dressed pregnancy photos. I didn’t even realise I was on their Facebook page, which has over 1 million likes, until one of my pointed out & one of my lovely followers Unfern mentioned - I didn’t even enter a competition or anything like that. Over the moon doesn’t cover it, although the other girls in this category were absolute babes so how i made it I do not know!

Christmas shopping with the baba and my Mam. How can you say no to that face, talk about giving me the puppy dog eyes.

Absolutely over the moon that thegingerdementor has given birth to her gorgeous baby girl. Lots of love & hugs coming your way beautiful xxx

Some of you may have noticed that my blogging has been quite minimum lately, reason being I’ve started back on my teaching course and, boy oh boy, have they thrown us straight into it. Basically we were given a presentation title / assignment last Wednesday and had to present our work today so as you can imagine things have been rather intense what with doing my teaching course, having a jobs and looking after my gorgeous baby boy. I also have to find a placement within a primary or secondary school within the next 2 weeks which covers a minimum of 120 hours by May.

My presentation went really well today, don’t get me wrong it was quite nervous to start off with. Give me a class of 30 children to teach & I’m fine but a presentation in front of 15 adults and the nervous sometime get the better of me… Especially when we have an examiner sat in evaluating us 😱 I passed with flying colours anyway & it went really well, I actually quite enjoyed it and felt really confident once I started.

I’m so excited for the future of my career now. Yes, it going to be a lot of hard work, long hours and no doubt a few tears but this time next year I’ll be in a school teaching and I cannot wait. I’d do anything to ensure my son gets the best of everything.

My gorgeous baby boy this morning on the way to pick grandma up for a fun filled day. We both nipped out bright and early to pick her up, it was so early that we still had our pjs on to collect her, love how Jack & I have matching Cowboy Rodeo pjs from Cath Kidston! We’ve picked up quite a few Christmas presents already for Jack, trying to get them all in ASAP so it saves getting caught in the Christmas rush… & yes I know I’m sorry, I can’t believe I’ve just used the “C,” word!

Can’t wait to see these gorgeous girlies later on to celebrate Louise’s (the girl with the dark hair in a bun) birthday. She has been through such a tough time over these past few months so I’d do anything to put a smile on her face πŸ’•
