Capturing the special moments – May

Capturing the special moments – May

May has been a month of ups and downs.

It began really well with a bank holiday and a trip to visit our friend’s. We had a lovely overnight stay with them and it was lovely to spend time with their new baby. The children were really well behaved, which is always a bonus. It also meant we could get a photo of us all, which is a rarity.

However, on our way home from our lovely stay we realised that Oscar’s beloved Bunny was missing. Unfortunately he’s still not been found, but Oscar has a new Bunny, which he seems to have taken ok to. You can read more about this sad story in my Losing Bunny post.

During May, Simon and I had a trip to Ascot races with my Mum and Dad, which was fab. I love to get glammed up and a trip to the races provides the perfect excuse!

This month I also got my phone stolen, whilst in London for work. It was stolen straight out of my hand by two idiots on a motorbike. I had to wait over a week for a replacement, which was pretty awful. I felt so disconnected from what has happening in the world and I hated not having a camera on me at all times!

We’ve also had a couple of weeks where the twins have been infected with a sickness bug. Heidi had it for a few days first and then about four days later Henry came down with it. Luckily Simon, Oscar and I all managed to escape it!

The end of the May hasn’t been too bad though. I’ve finally got my running mojo back and have been running three times a week for the last couple of weeks, as a result I’ve lost 3lbs! We got round to painting the spare room, ready to transform it into our dressing room. We’ve had another bank holiday, which means an extra day of family time; and I’ve been shopping for lots of pretty things to brighten up our house and garden.

As I said, it’s been a month of ups and downs!

    Oh I wish I could get back into running properly! That is awful about losing your phone, I would feel lost without it too. That is a lovely picture of you all at the top #MyCapturedMoment x

    Thanks Lisa. My love for running comes and goes. I find the more I do it, the more I want to do it! x

    Sounds like you've had a fun month, other than the sickness bug and lost bunny of course!! You look lovely in that Ascot shot, it's so nice to have some time off and get dressed up every now and again. Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xx

    Oh, it has had its ups and downs, hasn't it! Oh no to the bunny, we have a special rabbit, I can't imagine what we'd do if we lost it… But yay to the running, I must start running again 🙂 I would be lost without my phone too…! #mycapturedmoment

      Thanks Sara. I do struggle fitting the running in sometimes, but always feel so much better when I do make it out x
