  • Happy Monday – You Got This (Week) Girl


    Good Morning My Lovelies,

    We all need to start the week with some sheer positivity – I’ve always been a huge fan of quotes and this is a great way to start the week.

    I’m beginning with one that I think would be close to all Mummies hearts:


    It really is true; life is what we make it. Yes, as mummies we endure daily chaos; crying, poo explosions, never having enough time to do everything we want. But I can honestly say even in the most testing of times, I feel happy every day. I’ve been open about my struggles adapting at the start of motherhood but I did it; I accepted I couldn’t control everything anymore, I embraced the chaos and unexpectedness that being a Mummy brings, and I couldn’t be happier.

    It is so important to be grateful for all that we have in our happy homes; our other halves, a cosy home to call our own, and all those little home comforts we so often take for granted. But the main thing to remember is that life is what you make it; remember to be happy and don’t take things for granted. You just don’t know what is around the corner adn it’s the little things that will make you smile; yesterday, Mothers Day, baby boy decided not to let me have a lie in and even when my hubby sent me back to bed I couldn’t sleep. So I went to have a long hot bath – heaven in itself, but even more so when your other half decides that if you are missing breakfast in bed, you will instead have breakfast in the bath! These little things, lovely stories, that happen at home in your little family are the things that you always remember and value.

    Now my second bit of positivity is in the form of this quote:


    This is my quote to get you through the week! Mondays can be pretty rubbish to be honest; it’s hard to feel too motivated when you have that Monday morning feeling and its cold and miserable outside. But remember this quote and use it to reinforce that whatever you want to achieve this week, go for it! You can do it – you got this! No matter what it is; bake a cake, catch up on all your washing, start a book, go for it! As I’ve already said this morning, life is short; stop procrastinating and start making things happen!! You can do it!

    Have a great week lovelies xx

      I have the second quote in an etsy print that hangs in my eldest daughter’s bedroom. Also, I strongly believe that homemade cake can fix anything. Therefore, I absolutely love these two quotes and actually use them regularly ha! Happy belated Mother’s Day xx
