Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside


Hello all! Another month has flown by, and blog updates have been few and far between. There has been home-improvements aplenty, among the rest of the daily grind. To make life even more hectic I have taken up jogging. So getting my boys into their gladrags and getting out with the camera is increasingly difficult. However, yesterday was one of those rare days that we were at a loose end. So off we went to the beach.


On Saturday I popped into the kids section of M&S for what was supposed to be a cursory glance through the kids section while my husband was in B&Q buying manly things. Well, I have such a fondness for dungarees, and I spotted these beauties... in both my boys sizes. It was love at first sight and I knew the fellas had to have them. 


With three and a half years between them it's not always possible to find matching clothing. I know some parents hate the idea of putting siblings in the same outfits. My Mum used to dress my sister and I in identical dresses. It didn't bother me then, and it doesn't bother me now. I think it's mega cute. I know Jack, for one, loves to wear the same outfit as Noah.



Noah has just turned 11 months old. I can't believe he's one next month. It has flown by. The changes in babies first year are really just unbelievable. He's still on the brink of walking. Ready to take off at any moment, but just not there yet. He's walking 4 or 5 steps in a row to us now. Jack is so excited for him! All I hear is "Mummy, look, he's standing by himself!"

As I mentioned earlier, I decided I wanted to take up jogging. Well, unfortunately with such a limited amount of hours in the day, the only time I had was what was originally Maisey-Dogs evening walk. So, Maizers has to come too. Dear love her, I know she struggles at times to keep up, but I feel like we're in training together. She's really starting to sync up with my pace and we're both slowly improving. She's a great wee running companion.
