Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (August 2018)

Me & Mine August 2018

Another month done and the long hot summer is over. August for us was mostly about our holiday in France. We went to the Dordorgne for two weeks with my parents and brother and sister-in-law and it was fab. We celebrated Gabe’s third birthday while we were away – I wonder if it will be the first birthday he really remembers when he’s older? The two weeks since we came home have been very quiet with us spending a lot of time at home just resting, relaxing and hopefully preparing ourselves for the return to school and nursery next week.

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (June 2018)

Me and Mine June 2018

Although time is going really fast at the moment it actually feels like it’s been a while since I wrote last month’s Me & Mine post. At the start of this month we were just finishing up half term, and since then we’ve been struggling slightly with general end of term tiredness, and of course the amazing hot weather we’ve been having.

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (May 2018)

Me and Mine May 2018

I know I keep saying it but time is absolutely flying at the moment, and here we are at the end of May with another month done. It’s half term at the moment, and I can’t believe that when Toby goes back to school next week we’ll only have seven weeks until the summer holidays and the end of his first year at school!

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (February 2018)

Me & Mine February 2018

Well I’m a couple of days late with my Me & Mine post this month. This is mostly because February has absolutely flown by, I know it’s a short month but I’m sure it was January two seconds ago! And then you may have seen on my social media and maybe this week’s Living Arrows post that Gabe broke his foot at the start of last week so we’ve not had much chance to get out and about.

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (January 2018)

January 2018 Me & Mine

January feels like it has been the longest month ever – but despite that we still didn’t manage to get a family picture until today, when it was already February!  We’ve had a fairly quiet month  just getting used to the back to school routine. And now we’re back into the swing of things it’s only just over a week until half term! Read more

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (December 2017)

December 2017 Me & Mine family portrait

And just like that 2017 is done. 12 months, 12 Me & Mine pictures. I love this project for making sure we have a family picture from every month, because I know we definitely wouldn’t have them without it.

December was just all about the lead up to Christmas for us – now Toby is at school the preparation starts early! They were practising for the nativity for weeks, and Toby made a very impressive cow. He didn’t actually sing for most of it but he did very well at joining in with all the actions. We also had a Christmas fair to go to, and he had a Christmas party too. Safe to say we had one very excited and very exhausted boy come Christmas Eve. Read more
