baby swimmingBaby swimming – holding on!


Since I was given Jessica Alba’s book, I’ve been having a bit of girl crush. She paints what feels like a genuine picture of her life, and while I can imagine some people would be annoyed by its perfectness, I find it aspirational. What I mainly admire about her is how she has started a business based on something she really believes in – removing as many chemicals (particularly the dubious ones) from her day to day family life. She has completely opened my eyes to whole bunch of issues I was ignorant to and she’s got me to clean the house (see below!). She’s won awards for ingenuity in business and she’s basically what I would love to be like!


I have been caring for my husband! It is coming up to our 2 year anniversary and so we are celebrating *on our own* this weekend in Edinburgh. I literally can’t wait.


I have been loving going to Nemo Baby Swimming with Reuben and our buddies, Cath and Isabella, Emily and Beau. He’s getting much better at holding on to the side by himself (see the picture above!).


I’ve been cleaning my house…yes, something normal people do all the time but I just didn’t get it…until I read Jessica’s book (see admiring)! Now I just need to work out how to do it in less time, it seems to have taken me all week and now I need to start again!


For over a week I’ve been looking at some black bananas, not wanting to throw them out…I’ve been meaning to ‘create’ this banana cake but it’s like I’m allergic to baking! So rather than creating, I have been not creating. Maybe today…!


Currently is a link up between bloggers co-hosted by Harvesting Kale and Ot & Et…all you have to do is talk about what you’re currently up to and this week’s themes were admiring, caring, loving, cleaning, creating. Click the link below to find out what next week’s themes are and to join in.
