Making the most of having some time off!

Working full-time as a parent, let me tell you, is not easy. So when I was made redundant back in the beginning of July, I was worried about how we were going to cope moneywise but I was a little relieved. I was finally going to be able to spend some quality time with Harry. 

As you are probably aware, I went back to work full-time when Harry was 7 months old. While this was totally my choice and what worked best for our family, it was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. But now I was getting to have some time with him and I really wanted to make the most of it. 

I am now back to work full time and got really lucky that I am working a perfect 9-5 job. I was out of work for a total of five weeks. After my first week, Harry broke up from Nursery for the summer. We had decided this year to take Harry out of Nursery in the school holidays as it would be expensive and my mum was happy to help out. Luckily we did because we would have never been able to pay the bill while I was off. 

It took a week or so for Harry and me to get into a routine, working around nap times and Sam's shifts, but when we finally did it felt great, I even found time to do a proper clean of the house which it seriously needed and Harry and I got some fun times in too! 

Here are some of the photos we took! We also tried out some of the Free things to do in the summer I spoke about in my last post! 

really going to miss these times with my little man but I get every single weekend with him now and am looking forward to some more fun days!

Where It All Started

Birth Story

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
