Busby // The First Haircut

I’ve been putting it off. And off. And off again, for months. But on Saturday, Busby had her first real haircut in a salon! With the start of school approaching in September, and summer on the way (maybe?), it felt like the right time to have her lovely long locks cut… The day before our appointment, Busby asked me whether I could leave her there so she could “be a big girl, like you mummy” I think my heart might have broken a little (when did she get so grown up?).  ...

H-Bear // The Nursery Hunt Conclusion

We’ve been on the hunt to find H-Bear a nursery for a few months now, with no success. Who would have thought that finding a suitable nursery would be such a challenge? I think part of the issue is that Busby’s nursery in Sussex was AMAZING! It was a Montessori nursery, so there was a large focus on play, they had lots of access to the outdoors, and it always felt clean. Basically, our first experience of a nursery was such a high standard that finding anything that even vaguely  ...

Family Fun // North Cliffe Wood Nature Reserve, East Yorkshire

The move to Yorkshire from Sussex was a difficult one for me.

Anyway, pregnancy happened. Perinatal depression happened. Postnatal depression happened. And two years on  ...

Family Fun // Bridlington Beach

The thing I love most about living in Yorkshire are the beaches. Having grown up with Brighton beach as my back garden (almost literally until I was 10), I love being near the sea. I’m drawn to it. So living close(ish) to the beach is quite important for me – and what beaches they have up here! For a start, there’s sand! I’m so used to pebbles that bruise every surface of your body, and feet that have become so hardened by stepping on these pebbles, that sand is a  ...

Family Fun // Honeysuckle Farm, Hornsea

What a glorious weekend we’ve just had here in Yorkshire! The sun shone, we shunned the coats and, on Saturday, visited Honeysuckle Farm in Hornsea for the first time. We had big plans to visit Honeysuckle Farm while Nick was on paternity leave two years ago, and again last year, but we’ve never quite made it (I’m blaming sleep deprivation!), so I was quite determined that would indeed visit last Saturday. Honeysuckle Farm is just outside the seaside town of Hornsea. Set  ...
