Friday Favourites - 13/02/2015

Friday Favourites - STATIONERY

So, Anyone that knows me will know that I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with stationery. Im sure there will never be a point where I have 'enough', ever.
These are some of my favourite things that I have/want at the moment :)
1:  Iwako Eraser Set: Cooking
2: Filofax A5 Calipso
3: HEMA Sticky Notes
4: HEMA 2-pack of stamps
5: Stabilo .88 mini fineliners

I have the fineliners, they are possibly a little scratchier than staedler finelines, but they are small enough to put IN my organiser and come in a better range of colours!
Everything else is on my wishlist, the ever-growing enormous-never-gonna-happen wishlist of dreams! haha.

What are you loving this week?

How is it February already!?

I swear this year is running away with us already!

Kaison, my little baby boy, is almost a year old already. He is a walking, running, talking, dancing, snot machine. I cant keep up with him, he's like a little mini whirlwind!

It still amazes me how people so small can make so much mess.
Kaison had his first 'Shoot' from the agency. It was for a designer kids clothes range. We`re still waiting for pictures but it was really good experience for him (and us)!

Tsuki has learnt to sing her ABC! Its fab, but maybe after the 700th time in one day I got a little bored with it? Oh well, she has such a brilliant memory and Im sure its all the repetition. So she can keep going on that one if it helps :)
We`ve also been keeping up with our daft, freezing cold trips to the park! 

David has decided to learn how to pierce people. So obviously I am his guinea pig and becoming somewhat of a pincushion!
At least I get to wear more of my pretty jewellery at the same time!
Hope you are all well xx

It may be cold but we are still going out!

 I never thought I would be that crazy family that are out in all weathers. But this family NEED to get out of the house more often than not. Being around each other 24/7 can be draining at the best of times but add into that a hyper pre-schooler and a baby and is a recipe for disaster. So these are some of our outings so far in January :)

 Our first outing was to Capstone Country Park on New Years Day, it certainly blew out the cobwebs!!

Next up was a trip to Riverside Country Park to let Tsuki have another go on her bike (it didnt go well and we carried all the way round). But, the play area is now open after being shut for MONTHS and it was really good.

 An impromptu visit to KFC was needed also...

Then Kidzone, soft play, also known as the 7th circle of hell. Im sorry, but I cannot stand these places even at half price. Ick.

Well, its a new year and another chance for me to be a better blogger!

The children are changing so much, and so quickly, I barely even know where to start.

I`ll start with Kaison, who is now TEN months old. Which means in just 2 short months he will be a year old. I am so not ready!

 He is AMAZING! He can say mum, dad, ta, yeah! He rubs his belly when food is tasty, plays chase, claps his hands when you sing 'if your happy and you know it'. He can crawl at a million miles an hour and is just starting to take steps unassisted. He will devour a plate of spaghetti hoops on toast and LOVES my breakfast cereal. I thought it wouldnt be as much of a shock the 2nd time around, but I am still dumbfounded at how quickly he is growing up!

Now for Tsuki, who is now 3. She is brilliant and hilarious :) We think there is a possibility she has ADHD as David has it and she is showing signs but obviously nothing is getting done until she is older so that ones on the shelf. She has some difficult behave but she is a wonderful kid. She will happiliy introduce herself to strangers and makes friends super easily. She especially likes helping younger children :)

 She got a bike for christmas which she was super pleased with, I cant wait for the better weather to come so she can get to go on it more often.

As for me, Ive been busy trying to organise my life! Ive bought myself a day planner (which Im waiting for to arrive), its a Collins Salisbury Personal, similar to a Filofax. Ive also re-started my health regime and vowed to get the junk under control in this house! We are drowing under old clothes and unloved toys!!

I hope your all having a wonderful start to 2015

6 months already

Well, half a year has passed since this little guy entered the world, in his own unique fashion. Im constantly amazed by him, how different he is from his sister and how alike. How carefully he moves things in his hands to examine them. How sweetly he laughs with Tsuki on car journeys. How loudly he can scream at 3am. But I guess I wouldnt really have it any other way.
So, my little one, I hope you continue to be the happy little chap you are at the moment :)
(Im sorry Ive been a bit afk recently, busy busy! But Im going to try and be a better blogger! I promise xx)

Dallas and Leeloo

 For a while now we've been talking about getting pets, always putting it off and putting it off but we finally decided that we miss having pets! But what to get!? Something fairly child friendly, small, doesnt take up too much space but interesting to watch and interact with.
In the end we decided on gerbils :)
So, we have adopted 2 gerbils from a Pets@Home store, they were ones that had been returned unwanted to the store so we made a donation for them to continue to care for other unwanted pets.
I have to say, they are brilliant creatures! No bites at all, the occassional 'taste' to see if we are food, they even put up with Tsuki trying to stroke them!
So, Dallas and Leeloo say Hey :D
