It's been a long time

Me taking a selfie in the woods with my hood up

It's been a long old time since I updated this blog, but in recent weeks I've really felt the urge to start writing again.

Why this blog and not makeup-pixi3.com? Makeup-Pixi3 just doesn't really fit who I am now. I barely ever wear makeup for starters, and I want the freedom to talk about more than just beauty and mummy stuff. So here I am, ready to write again. I'll kick off with a little life update to bring you up to speed. I can see the last update I wrote was a Christmas post from 3 years ago. Well a fair bit has happened since then!

Dot is now just over 2.5 years old. I never envisioned I'd say this, but we're still breastfeeding. I somehow never expected to be breastfeeding a toddler, and a toddler past the age of 2, but here we are. He feeds to sleep about 8pm, usually pretty quickly as he's dropped his day nap now. Then he often wakes 1-2 times in the night for a feed, if it's after 4am I'll pop him in bed with us to feed and we'll snuggle and sleep until it's time to get up. Then he likes a feed first thing. And now that we're in lockdown, he asks countless times during the day for feeds too - most of the time I can distract him with a cup of almond milk but sometimes he just needs the comfort, and that's ok.

Now to Squidge. He's 5.5 now, he's a smart, sassy and witty little boy. He's adorable and makes us laugh daily. When he's upset, he screams with every ounce of breath in his body, often much to our horror. He's doing well with his school work, being one of the top readers in his class (in Welsh) and his writing and maths is coming along really well too. Don't even ask about home schooling, I'll write a whole separate post on that.

Hubby and I are still happily married, this December (2020) it'll be 12 years married and 19 years together, absolutely bonkers. Matilda our cat is still going strong, she'll be 15 in November.

Coronavirus - so far with this we've been lucky, and none of our family have been affected by it. Many of us might have had it, mildly, but all in all we're good. I know to count my blessings though, because situations can change quickly, but for now, we're one of the lucky ones.

Despite not actively blogging in a while (about a year in total), I've still been updating Instagram daily, mostly just stories.

Well, that's it for now. I have a few posts in mind I'd like to write, I'll do an update on Dot's dairy and soya allergy as he still has that, and some posts around what we're doing with home schooling etc. Ooh and I have a couple renovation posts to do too, that'll be nice. Oh and my weight-loss as well, I've lost 4 stone on Slimming World since August 2019 - I'll write up some posts about that too.
