Lately



















Lately has been mostly about trying to get myself into a routine with this school malarky! I am not liking this one bit even though Elle completely loves it and is thriving like anything. I am still taking driving lessons and have booked my driving test for December! I am SO excited and have been spending many hours watching youtube videos on driving tests. Yep, i am that kinda girl! It never really bothered me that i didn't drive, but since starting lessons and realising i have all this freedom ahead of me, it has made me feel very trapped and claustrophobic. It feels like everything is being put on hold until i pass that test. I will be able to visit friends, have a sister day once a week as my sister lives half hour away, take Mia to the indoor play centres and basically just have more of a life instead of being stuck right in the middle of the town centre. I am itching to have that piece of paper that says i have passed my test and i am willing december to get here now so i can do my test and fingers crossed i pass.

I have been having a blast with Mia. We spent this morning dancing and bouncing her up and down on my legs! The house is getting messy and my laundry pile is getting bigger but i am loving this time with her! I am going to start taking her swimming and enroll her in gymnastic classes after christmas. So many wonderful things i can do with her! I have never really had one to one time with her and now i have, i am discovering this whole new side of her. She is completely funny and crazy and clever and so caring but with a touch of her sister's feistyness!

  1. beautiful photos {as always!} good luck on your driving test! I can't drive either, would love to learn, but just can't afford it at the minute. One day!

    1. Thank you dear. I am so pleased i started lessons! It is pricey and we are not left with a lot after my lessons are paid as my lessons and an hour and a half each week instead of an hour, but i will be passed sooner and love it :)

  3. You can see so much of Elle in Mia!
    Good luck passing your driving test. I think 2014 will finally be the year I learn to drive, I've been thinking about it for quite a while but always felt too nervous. I think now is the time, my desire to get out and about is overcoming my worries about learning!
