New photos from Whitebox photography

A couple of years ago I took C to review Whitebox photography and got some really cute photo’s taken. We really enjoyed it and I found that Liam the photographer was really great with C, he was able to get great photo’s even when she was moving and could get her attention easily to get the photo’s I wanted.

I thought it was about time that I got some updated photo’s so looked on Whitebox photography’s facebook page and booked another session.
So at the I took her up to Crosby for a 20 minute photo session.

I have to say £25 for a 20 minute session is a bargain when you get all the photo’s on a CD.
C had so much fun laughing and jumping her way though the whole session. We got some really cute photo’s, here are a few of my favourites.

I really do recommend Liam at WhiteBox Photography Liverpool to anyone looking to have pictures taken, great quality and value for money plus the copyright is yours so you can print and edit the images however you want.

Which is your favourite picture?


Life got in the way…so here is October

I’m sorry that I’ve taken such a long gap in writing but life and uni have well and truly take over.
I don’t seem to have a spare second to think at the moment with lectures, assignments, clinical skills labs and exams to study for, on top of looking after C.

My parents were away on holiday for most of October so I didn’t have the support I usually do from them meaning I had even less time, although she did go to stay at her dad’s for half term week meaning I could concentrate on uni work a little more.

C has been amazing through all the recent change of me starting uni as well her days in nursery going up to two full days and one morning. I cant believe how grown up she is now.

so I should catch you up on what we have been up to over the last month or so.

 October started with me and my best friend Danii hopping in the car one Friday evening and travelling to London to see the Happy potter and the cursed child play on the Saturday!

if you get a chance you need to see it, #keepthesecret
We had booked the tickets nearly a year before so had been waiting a long time for it.

In the middle of October Sam and I took C to crazy golf for the 1st time, she wasn’t overly impressed and I think it was a bit much for her at only 3 and 3/4, but I got some cute videos of her trying to hit the ball.

Then we started to get ready for Halloween 😀
We painted paper plates to make pumpkins for the windows. C loves to paint so it was a great activity and kept her entertained for a little while.

C and I went pumpkin picking to church hall farm not too far from Liverpool. I was a cold but lovely day and I got some of my favourite pictures of C this year, her playing in the hay and jumping about having fun.
We got 4 lovely pumpkins to carve ( 3 for home and one for her dad’s house)
C rode on a donkey, and had loads of fun running on the bales of hay.

I love this picture :D

I love this picture :D

Afterwards we went to MacDonald’s for tea and C had a lovely rainbow painted on her face.


C has started swimming lessons and already achieved her duckling award 1 😀 she loves swimming, and is already trying to do it alone ( she’s not quite there yet thought)

We carved our pumpkins for Halloween

and decorated outside the house, making a “crime scene” using chalk

Then on Halloween C got to wear her costume to nursery before trick or treating in the evening, she chose to be a pirate this year. She loved trick or treating, running to the houses on her own ( while me and danii waited at the end of the path) saying ” trick or treat” and ” happy Halloween”

She got so many sweets that she doesn’t need to buy more till next year!

Oh and in big news after waiting over 3 years I FINALLY have a new bed, It’s a king size ottoman style so plenty of accessible storage and is so comfy 😀

October was a fun month!!!

My parents returned from holiday at the start of November and I have been busy with lectures and writing assignments that are due this month, one 3500 word essay as well as a 1500 word annotated bibliography, both due on the 25th November.

I promise to update more as I am mainly keeping this as an online diary so C can see what she did and liked when she was younger, and so family can see what we have been up too.


Our summer holidays…so far

It’s nearly half way through the summer holidays but they havent really been that different for me as a parent as I have still been working until recently. I finished work last week as I’m going to start my Nursing degree in September, i’ve left a few weeks early to spend time with C and have a little holiday in Towyn wales at the end of the month with her and Sam.

C hasnt been in nursery as she goes to a term time nursery so my mum and other family members have been stepping in to look after her.

We have done a few things up to now this summer …

Greenacres animal park, Deeside

C and I went to Greenacres animal park in Deeside with a few friends and their kids a few weeks ago. The kids loved seeing the animals, touching a few in the pets corner area like snakes, rabbits and feeding baby goats.

The fair rides weren’t the greatest but they kids liked them, even if they got bored waiting for one of the 3 attendants that were operating all the rides.

The weather was fabulous and all the kids really got on well 😀

Fun in the park.

A few times we have been over to the park for a play in the play area. C loves it and makes new friends everytime ( although I tent to only take photo’s of her as I wouldn’t like people taking pictures of her without my permission)

She never wants to leave but is always too tired to walk home lol

Break out

Sam and I try to do something just us two on or around the 20th of the month he planned last months date night so I got to plan this month.

I took him to Break out in Liverpool to do the room Classified  this was his 1st time but the second time I had been. ( read about my last time here)

I’m not telling you what happens in the room but it included a lot of locks and some very ingenious hiding places. We had a great time and managed to break out with 4 minutes 9 seconds to go ( with a little help from the lovely lady behind the tv screen)


Playtime at home!

We have played, tried on holiday clothes and explored the house and garden 😀


This summer C has been to a couple of Birthday parties, we have had meals out with family and friends and of course donuts 😀 all a child’s favourite things.

This is C at a family meal with an adult’s chocolate cake….her uncle Ste got her kids one :p


Exploring our city ( for free!) 

We had a love day out last week, even though the weather was rubbish we decided to go on a day out and explore Liverpool.

Sam, C and I all got up and dressed, had some breakfast then drove into town.

We parked in St johns then went into the shopping centre, there was a new food place opening up in the food court called Doughocracy that was offering free Pizza on Friday and £1 pizza on Saturday and Sunday. We queued for a while (45 mins) for free pizza, and it was worth it. pizza was a 10″ create your own type and cooked in about 3 minutes.


We ate then went to Dunkin’ Donuts were we got a box of a dozen to take to our friend later that night. C had once while we were there as she seem to have a second “sweet” stomach and no matter how full she is she still has room for dessert lol


After that we went to the world museum, starting at the top we worked our way from dinosaurs to the natural world, colours to the aquarium. C loved to look at everything and even got to try on some dress up ( so did I because Sam put it on my head while I was helping C and too ka sneeky picture).

We go on holiday in a week so will have a ton more pictures then. I hope to get back into blogging more after the holidays as it is a little difficult to get things done with a 3 year old, plus a new relationship.

Once everything is settled and I start at uni I will try and blog on here and on my student one at least once a week.
