MOTHERLY LOVES | Friday Five


It's been another week of feeling like I'm rushed off my feet. It's Ada's christening on Sunday so I've been busy ordering decorations, altering outfits (the trousers of mine, the neckline of her dress) putting together all the final touches. I've also been offered a little stall at Bygone Times so my mind has been non-stop, thinking about what stock I can sort out for it, how I'll have everything arranged. As well as catching with a friend I need to make more effort with, working, looking after a teething baby and everything inbetween, it's busy. But enjoyable! I don't know how I wasn't bored out of my skull before I had a baby. 

1. Veronica Dearly EU Prints - politics can get very serious, which is fine, it needs to be really, but sometimes it's nice to poke a little bit of humour into a situation to stop people getting so riled up. Whilst there are quite a few people who are still undecided, the majority of people I know are firmly in one camp or another. I'm writing this on Wednesday evening, preparing to get up first thing and head off to vote. I'm personally voting in to remain, but I hope everyone can have a little giggle at these prints, regardless if they got the verdict they hoped!

2. This gorgeous little romper that has just headed into the Mamas & Papas sale!

3. Celebrating National Breastfeeding Week having a look through the hashtag on instagram and feeling proud that Ada and I have reached over six months of breastfeeding. It always amazes me just thinking that my body not only grew a baby, I managed to keep her alive solely on my milk for over six months. 

4. Perhaps I'd remember to take out reusable bags with me if I had one as awesome as this tote from Oh No Rachio

5. Reading about Parenting Boredom on Me & Orla. I think a lot of people out there, who either haven't had children or have forgotten what it's like, might be quick to judge if you mentioned occasionally finding parenting boring. It's not something to be ostracized about, there is only a certain amount of times you can sing along to Mr. Tumble or shake the same teddy around without feeling a tiny bit bored. It's not that we don't love our children, it's that we're human beings who need our own time, too! 

What have you loved this week?
