Reuben’s christening and how I planned it

I had so much fun planning Autumn’s christening, that in many ways I couldn’t wait to do it again for Reuben. Having our children baptised is something that’s really important to me. The rest of our family and friends seem to appreciate and enjoy the occasion too! Nevertheless, my life is busier these days, so it was actually quite stressful! Both children were unwell and Reuben was teething in the few weeks leading up to Reuben’s baptism. This resulted in me having even less time than usual. Still, I pulled it off in the end (just as the bestie I vented to said I would!)

My Wedding Day: My wedding car and convoy

Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary (yay!) For the first time, I’ve actually managed to write about my wedding on the blog as I’ve kept planning to every June since Autumn was born. It’s a bit weird, since I’ve been busier than ever these last few months. I’m not knocking it though. It’s been lovely to finally write up about about the different elements of our day. So far, I’ve written about our invitations and my wedding dress. Today I’m focusing on the cars. As someone who has grown up with a love and appreciation of cars, the wedding car was always going to be just as important as the dress for me. I’d also had a special convoy planned out in my head since I got engaged. It was just a case of putting the plan into action and hoping that it would work. Largely as I would be relying on people’s good will…

Week Three: 30 Days Wild 2021

Wow, it feels like June has gone so fast! It feels like yesterday I updated you on how week 2 of our 30 Days Wild had gone, now here I am with week 3! This week felt a bit more challenging. I think this is partially because the weather has been inclement once again, which has somewhat limited what we can do. While I don’t mind going outside in the rain, having a young baby who hates getting rain on his face doesn’t really lend itself to that! We’ve also been doing more rewiring this week so my husband has been busy as when he hasn’t been busy with his day job he’s been helping my brother with some of the elements of that. While in a nicer world I’d happily go for a walk in the woods on my own with Autumn and Reuben to do some of the activities in mind, the harsh reality is that I can’t.

Still, here is what we’ve been doing in spite of the challenges!

Week Two: 30 Days Wild 2021

After a successful first week of 30 Days Wild, I think I speak for us both when I say we were excited to start a new week of fun nature related activities! Already, I have noticed that Autumn is paying attention to nature more. Me too, actually. I have noticed she’s becoming braver regarding nature too. She’s not quite as scared of bees as she was and is definitely getting more hands on. Here’s what we’ve been up to over the last week.

Half-term fun in the sun at Hever Castle

Gifted & contains sponsored linkĀ¦ We didn’t go to Hever Castle at all last year due to a combination of the pandemic and me being pregnant with our rainbow baby. I think the last time we went was Christmas 2019 and I missed it so much! It is without a doubt one of the best places to visit in Kent for a day out. Therefore, when I could see that sun was finally forecast for the late May bank holiday weekend, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! Fortunately, Hever Castle’s online booking system made it very easy to book a slot. We chose a morning one to allow us to make the most of the day-and what a glorious day it was!
