Back last month when I was studying, Chris suggested taking the boys out for a while. To simply give me some space and genuine silence. "We'll go for a walk and you can really press on without any distractions" - I was so grateful to his suggestion.. but I couldn't help but feel a little jealous of their trip out in the sun. I was stuck inside under a mountain of notes, literally trying to find a way to gather this information and put it into 'academic writing' worthy. It was hard, but I did get some done that day.

And since finishing, that's exactly what I've been doing, enjoying family time and relaxing in the evenings. It's been so lovely to just have them few hours doing pretty much nothing - I definitely recommend it! To be honest, the whole blog seemed a chore.. but it's down to the last essay really sucking out my enjoyment for writing - I'm glad it's starting to pass as I've been feeling so guilty for not publishing anything. This was my place to really enjoy writing and get our little story written and there's probably so many little moments that I should've mentioned or captured and I simply didn't as I was too exhausted. But life happens and, I'm just glad I've started to pick up my Instagram once again. It's my mini blog for the everyday happenings and even one photo a day really brings so much.

I'm the head chef in our house - despite Chris being a chef by trade, our kitchen is my kitchen. I totally understand the fact he doesn't particularly fancy cooking when he's been shipping out meals for 8/11 hours, near enough every day. In all honesty, it doesn't bother me too much as it gives me free reign over the meals and I can cook what fits well with the plan and also that they'll enjoy too! As previous, here's a few snaps of my meals over the last 4 weeks..
