This seems only yesterday and yet today we received Alex's place for school in September! If I ever needed a sign that time goes quickly... today was a huge bolt... So much will change when he goes to school and its definitely the end of him being my baby. But at the same time I'm so excited for this next adventure... Can't wait to witness all the amazing things he will learn and the friendships he will make!

Beautiful day in Norwich today. I pass this cathedral almost every day but just take it for granted. Today I passed a group of tourists taking hundreds of photos of it so felt compelled to stop and appreciate it. I am going to try and appreciate all those wonderful places and people that I take for granted that they will always be there. #norwichromancatholiccathedral #norwich #localsights #norwichmum #appreciate #norwichspring #mumlife #headsup #livelife #norwichcity at The Cathedral of St John the Baptist

9 months out! Can't believe how quickly 9 months have gone yet equally can't believe she hasn't been part of our family forever. Its been wonderful getting to know our little girl over the past 9 months and I'm so fortunate not to be rushing back to work just yet and get a few more months of girl time. Love you Millymoo! X

It can be so easy to always be looking forward..... I caught myself a couple of times wishing time away... To when Emily sleeps better, or when the weather is warmer, to my holiday, to when the kids are old enough to play on their own... But what about today's moments? One of the gems of social media is it encourages us to highlight daily moments...so whether you post them or not... Get out there, create them and breathe them in! #lifeisforliving #liveinthemoment #familyfirst #liveyourbestlife #livelife #moments #mumlife #norwichmum #lifeisshort

Monday we visited The Folly Tearoom in Holt, for mother’s day with our mum, and what a little Gem it is! Beautifully decorated with cute china cups and flowers 🌸 on the tables. We had a Gentleman’s tea which is a selection of sandwiches, homemade sausage rolls and a selection of quiche (we had pea & mint, beetroot and broccoli and bacon i think) followed by a fruit & plain scone each there was so much food and it was all delicious 😋 next time i would maybe just share 2 of the gentleman’s tea between the 4 of us and then have a slice of cake as the cake selection looked fabulous 🍰 I look forward to returning on a warm day and sitting in the beautiful outside area. .If you Haven’t been it’s definitely one to try. . . . #afternoontea #holt #holtafternoontea #gentlemanstea #mothersday #sisters #family #mumlife #northnorfolk #thefollytearoom #mumsthatlunch #yum #mumlife #mumsofinsta #norwichmum #norfolk at The Folly Tearoom

Hi I'm Alfie! My mummy says she's started this account to keep all my friends and family far and wide up to date with all things me. But I know it's really because all her friends have fancy home accounts but she's too lazy to do the housework, so I'm the next best thing! I hope you enjoy watching my life... Mummy's hoping posting updates will encourage her to do more interesting stuff with me... pretty sure she's fooling no one but herself! Happy Monday everyone x . . . . #baby #babiesofinstagram #mumlife #babyboy #mumandson #motherhood #motherandson #norwichmum #norwich #newaccount #maternityleave #alflauren #mummyandme at Norwich, Norfolk

It was a Mother's Day today and I played with this one all day. . . When he was born I was 40. So I am not a so-called young mum. I feel it after a day like this, I am absolutely exhausted. . . However, I know these tiring days won't last forever. So as long as I can drag myself I will take him out to enjoy every moment with him. . . Happy Mother's Day to all mums in the world. at Pilling Park and Lion Wood

Very cloudy and windy but had a good Saturday walk (My son was carried by his dad occasionally) 😋 . . When I visited this place for the first time I loved it here because so quiet & I didn't encounter other people, as if this was my own lake! . .

Was pretty impressed with our brekkie attempts this am. Scrambled egg on crumpets. When I was a kid I used to think scrambled egg was the weirdest thing: flavour, smell, texture, but Bb chomped it like a pro 👍 I seem to always over portion his food but it just seems mean giving tiny amounts- must learn to calm the "feeder," in me 😱 I usually chuck my own breakfast in his plate too so we can chow down, family style (doesn't always work like this and often I'm just staring at him eating, or sneaking a look at my phone below his eye level 🤭) but it's my aspiration- one of many mum aspirations I have- to eat together most meal times. Does anyone manage this daily? If so what's your secret to getting some calories into yourself? #weaning #blw #scrabledeggandcrumpets #meltybutter #yum #familymealtimes #mumgoals #mumaspirations #somany #mumspirations #mumblog #momblog #norwichmum #norfolkmum #honestmum #honestmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #motherhooduncut

This little hand has been there for 2 hours now ♡ Baby sleep: it's a crazy old topic hey? Bb has been up really early (for him) since we moved house, 3 weeks ago now. This morning is the first time he's settled back down for a later snooze (totally grateful for this!) And I'm petty certain it's because I've been so fuelled on cortisol myself the last few weeks that I've temporarily forgotten how to feed responsively. When Bb has woken at 4/5/6am I've gotten up and made a point of doing solid breakfast and getting out for our first walk of the day but this morning I kept offering him as much boob as possible and he's still asleep 🙌 definitely a mum win right? How is it possible to forget how to respond like this?

It's not big and it's not clever BUT it is a dog park near our house with this random gateway, attached to nothing 🤣 I don't get its purpose but it looks nice! So we managed a Sunday dog walk in the rain, Bb and me. Bb who has taken to ripping his rain cover off at any given moment, he hates being contained, not sure where he gets that from 🙄 SET ME FREE! #sundaydogwalk #jennylind #whoisshe #norwich #norwichnorfolk #norwichmum #norfolkmum #dogwalk #bruce #citydogheaint #decorativegateway #cutehearts #setmefree #freespirit

Norwich underpass, without fail, makes me reflect on my direction in life. Also, without fail, I get lost under here, every, single, time! I mean, how is that even possible? There's only 4 route options! I've lived here the majority of my life and used this pedestrian system frequently but once I'm down there I get absorbed into its tunnel-y-ness which discombobulates me to the max. Plus it's full of artworks which are ever changing and fascinating. I know people take their little journeys each day, often repeated from the day before and the following day. It's routine. It's hum drum. But I see this 4 pointed, concrete tardis as a mini Camino each day. In a way I think it's quite nice to get lost in such familiarity. Much like feeling lost sometimes in motherhood, it gets really confusing and sends you off course but deep down, you know at your core, that it's a route to the next level, a journey in life, a Camino. #travel #route #miniexploration #explorationofthemind #motherhood #Norwich #norwichmum #mumblog #realmum #honestparenting #philosophical #dailyjourneys #camino #wellbeing #smallreflections #life

... and he's also decided that his nap schedule MUST now change 😱. My mum's always telling me, 'Just as you get used to one routine they go and change it out of the blue!' I have tried hard to ignore this piece of information (for the want of knowing what *might* be happening, day to day) but, as ever, I'm taking a big, deep, breath, and going with the flow, and the eb of the tiny-person tide 🏄‍♀️ #Norwichmum #norwichblogger #mumblog #parentblog #instamum #instaparent #instadaily #babyboy #6months #nap #napschedule #whatnapshedule? #adjustment #flow #eb #noddingoff #babysleep #mystery #bigmumadvice #innerchildrebellion #ofcourseshesright #honestparenting #strengthintruth

Firstly, this photo looks a bit freaky and like I've wrapped my child in cling film! 😱 I assure you it's the buggy rain cover, and secondly he no longer wants to play with the actual toy I've put in there with him (an out-of-shot owl- plastic, not feathered!) But instead, he wants to rip the rain cover off... really, fucking, annoying! Someone just offered the valid point, "maybe he likes rain?" Which I'd genuinely not considered... But I'd also like to keep him dry, as well as happy. #FML #instababy #instamum #parentingisforsaints #didntgraduatesaintschool #coffee #owltoy #whoneedstoys? #justbreathe #shouldntbeabigdeal #norwichmum #mumblog #alwaysstressed #getagrip

This morning I've woken up with a mime in my child's place 😂 this is the guy who starts singing before he even opens his eyes in the morning, silence is not his thing! There was a weird couple of days, earlier this week, where I was basically mute for 48 hours. It happened to co-incide with Bb turning 6 months old and me not knowing exactly what the hell had just happened over the last half a year. I think it was (still is if I'm honest) overwhelming to the point of silencing me, no mean feat! Anyone else get that at the 6 month mile stone? Huge feelings, such mixed emotions, always, with this journey. I wrote more about it in my blog, available via my bio, '6 month mum-amnesia, mam-nesia,' if you will. Anyway, back to my mini mime! I've just remembered mimes are usually sad which doesn't fit Bb either, either rageful or laughing, got to love those extremes of emotion. #mime #mimebaby #instamum #instaparent #instababy #instadaily #highsandlows #findingmyvoice #silentmum #mentalhealth #shock #birth #parenthood #norwichmum #learningonthejob #passtherulebook #6monthsold #6monthspostpartum #bodyimage #linkinbio

Something positive coming out of all this is that, I miss the dog! On my recent blog post, 'dog blog 101,' I spoke about the lovely Bruce, border collie extraordinaire, gong to stay with my parents for a few days. Being a sheep dog he needs a lot of attention and walking and living in the city makes really good, quality walks pretty tricky without hot footing it in the car to a bigger park (which then involves getting Bb INTO the car and then into the back breaking sling, whilst having to bend down to poo pick, not drop the baby and throwing the ball for a reasonable length of walk). What's funny is that I really miss the dog. I (can't believe I'm writing this) miss the daily routine of him (I usually hate routine!) I also miss the fact he's always, ALWAYS happy. Babies vary but dogs can pull a smile outta nowhere just when you need it! This pic is the day we got him, my first child 😆, just before we tentatively got in the car for the long and scary drive home. I remember being more nervous about bringing Bruce home than I was Bb! He's such a lovely dog, ready to have him home now xx #dog #instadog #bordercollie #dogholiday #doggyvacation #petsandbabies #puppy #nearly3 #dogwalks #norwichmum #norfolkmum #instamum #instadogmum #norfolkdogwalks #norwichsheepdog #doglove #family #wemissyoubruce #Bbandbruce

Thank you @munchkin_uk for sending Jasmine a lovely new 360 sippy cup in pink! As you can see from the pictures she’s picked it up REALLY quickly and will help herself if she wants some water! I was so surprised she knew exactly what to do if I’m honest, and I love the fact it can’t spill anywhere - even when she gets excited!! I’m so pleased she’s taken to it so well, next step is putting some milk in! @munchkininc #gifted #sippycup #munchkin #munchkin360cup #pinkcup #baby #luckygirl #norwichmum #mummyblogger #mumblogger #mumbloggeruk #discoverunder5k #norfolkblogger #norfolkbloggers #norwichblogger #mumssupportingmums #dadblogger #parentblogger at Norwich, Norfolk

I’ve never had a baby shower. I relocated about a year before Max was born and was only 20 when I had him so I was sort of stranded in no mans land and my insecurities definitely got the better of me. However it was my choice to move and my issues that stopped me settling and making friends as well as pregnancy meaning not socialising as much as I would have done before being pregnant. Fast forward to my second pregnancy and I’ve still not really settled - going back into education, working, running a home and looking after a Max has meant very little opportunity to make friends that I would confidently invite to something like a baby shower. So today Max made a cake to celebrate our new addition and it doesn’t make it any less special that it’s just us 3 and bump I’m also on bed rest for a while following a hospital visit yesterday so probably for the best anyway 😂 #backtobedforme #dadscleaningup

Every year I get invited to my son’s school to talk about nutrition, and each time, I challenge the children to try what I call ‘Shrek juice’. It’s a smoothie with fruit and a whole heap of spinach that blends into the same colour as the Ogre himself 👍! Not many kids like spinach. Some don’t even like the thought of trying anything green 🤢! As most of the class were up for the challenge, I thought I’d share @melrobbinslive #5secondrule with them to help them not overthink what they were about to do. It worked a treat counting down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and drink! Out of around 60 children, 4 of them didn’t participate. The funny thing is, most of the kids LOVED the taste! It’s a fun way to get your kids to eat their greens 🥬💚!

Love finding a little crochet time each day! Since I attended a workshop with my daughter 3 years ago, I have mainly made blankets and shawls, this is my first bag! The kit was a birthday gift from a friend of mine, so I am determined to finish it and show her!Hopefully it’ll be strong enough to make a few trips to the supermarket too! . . . . . . . . . . . . #crochet #crochetaddict #crochetbag #crochettotebag #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #norfolklife #norwichmum #mum #hobbies #crafts #crafting at Norwich, Norfolk
