Me and Mine {June}


Well June, where did you go? I meant to write this post at the end of June but we are now nearly in the middle of July. Time really can get away with you sometimes and here I am in July and still not quite registering that June is over. 

June was a super quick month for us. It was a lovely month too we shared our lovely news that we are expecting baby Taylor number 3, I turned 28, and it was Father’s Day too. I’ve got just two more weeks left of work and then we are off for the summer holidays. I will still be working online and from home as usual, as the ease of it is being able to fit it in between the children and our activities. 

I do feel really lucky working from home around the children. I wouldn’t change it and am so grateful I get to do it.

This month Sophia has come up to me a handful of times to hug the baby as has Archie which has shocked me a little. A) being because my bump is now a bump although small and they can really see that the baby is in there and growing. And B) being because I still can’t believe I’m pregnant sometimes so when they come up to cuddle the baby in my belly I have to take a retake. It’s quite funny actually. I hope I will feel pregnant soon and feel this baby get stronger. But nonetheless I am enjoying this season in my pregnancy and feeling really good even in the heat.

Archie and his dad are closer then ever. It is so lovely to see how their relationship develops. And Archie looks up to his daddy for everything. I am so lucky to have my two boys.

This pregnancy has been everything I have ever dreamed of so far. I have felt so good in fact better then I ever have and I don’t at all feel fully pregnant yet. I’m just really loving it and savouring and enjoying every second I can. 

This month we have been on mission to save save save. We would like to book a family holiday for next year at the end of this year. We also would like to go away somewhere this year and like to finish the house. So the list is awfully long! But it’s always nice working towards goals together and making things happen. It is what we enjoy most. 

So yes June has been really busy, most of the time, generally I love being busy. I enjoy everything I do here online and in my day to day life so would quite happily carry on with that for the foreseeable future.

Sophia and Archie are so ready for the summer holidays as am I. I am hoping the holidays will be fun for all three of us. I just really want them to have a good time and enjoy some time off and away from school and everyday routines. It will be nice to have the freedom even though I love our current routine I think for everyones sake sometimes it can be nice to switch off and set out on adventures and trips together.

We have some really fun things planned and meeting with some of my online friends too which should be lovely.

      I struggle sometimes. But I can imagine with a newborn it must be a bit of a challenge. xx
