Spring into Joe Browns

So very excitingly the other day the Joe Browns Spring catalogue appeared on my door mat! This is always a pleasant sight as you know that I have a love for all things Joe Browns. So obviously I thought the best thing to do would be to share a wish list with my lovely readers of all my favourite items… ok that would be the whole catalogue …so I’ve whittled it down to a more restrained list! Also doing this makes me feel cheerful – Joe Browns clothes never fail to put a smile on my face.  Let’s hope my family see this (and are feeling generous… ;-P)
Enjoy!!!

Taormina Jacket (£74.95)
Taormina Jacket

Loving all the detailing on this gorgeous jacket – this would totally dress up a lovely pair of skinny jeans and a plain top.  Great for mild spring days, that are a bit nippy first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Can imagine wearing this for a shopping trip or at lunch with the girls, but would be equally at home for an evening at the pub! (not that I get to do that often – instead this would be showcased on the school run!)

Ducking Boxercise!

By this I mean we did lots of ducking and diving, not that I tried to get out of it! As if I would, my Boxercise is my weekly sanity lifeline – this is one of things that really helps with my anxiety! Multiple benefits of exercise, not being able to think of anything else and possibly the fun of getting to hit things!!! A good stress reliever!

Kitted Out - Making it look glam! ;-P

So for the warm up, there were slow jabs to one side, then fast jabs, then repeated on the other side. Skipping, skipping from one side to the other. A skip back, then skip forward touch the ground – this needed coordination which I seem to be slightly lacking in! High legs jogging on the spot and various other things – whew, we were well and truly warmed up!Read More »

Suddenly she’s turned six!!!

So on this day six years ago, at 6:52am our Pink One came into the world, weighing 7lb 3oz and changed our lives forever!

I cannot believe she is six years old already – seriously where has the time gone?

So this year, I’ve written a poem for my beautiful, intelligent and incredible daughter…

  
Now You Are Six

The morning you came you changed our lives forever.

Before you arrived life was good but now with you in the world it just got better

Our family of two become a wonderful three with this beautiful baby girl, half daddy, half me

Big blue eyes and a complete cutie pie, you are the apple of mine and daddy’s eye

We would watch you for hours, we were completely besotted. Each little facial expression and the way your arms swatted.

  
But how time flew and before we knew you were walking and talking how ‘independent’ you’d grown.

You made us laugh with your cheeky ways, the little pickle who brightens our days.

I’m not saying it’s all been easy, as we know it has not, but I wouldn’t change a thing, not a single part

There are times that we clash and mummy gets mad, but remember my child you are not bad

Everything we do and say is because we love you so much, your zest for life our hearts has touched

We gave you a brother, it’s so lovely, how you play so well with each other
You’re a wonderful big sister (most of the time) and to see you laugh together brings a tear of joy to my eye

Watching you grow is an honour and blessing, what you’ll be when you’re older has everyone guessing
We’re so lucky to have you, you’re a joy to behold and now my amazing daughter you are six years old!

  

  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my darling Pink One!!! Love you loads!!!

Mummy 😊xxx
