Curly, blue-eyed wifey. πŸ’ York-based creative πŸ“– And mumma to Emilia and the furbabies: Sali & Lyra 😻
Happy World Breastfeeding Week! (1st - 7th August) It may not be easy at times and is the messiest thing so far about being a Mum, but I love breastfeeding. It'sΒ  when I feel closest to Em in my own personal experience. Of course, everybody's feeding journeys are different and I'm a firm advocate of Fed is Best. For me, that's exclusively breastfeeding and I'm glad I have the opportunity to.

You can thank natural light for the shoddy quality of this photograph. πŸ™ƒ My favourite place to feed is in my nursing chair (incidentally, my most expensive baby purchase and worth most of the rest of the nursery combined), but it does make for a difficult selfie angle on this phone.
And now she's asleep on my chest, so I can't even close the curtains. 😝

Still like our summer walks 😍
Not much sun today, but swipe to see Em sleeping in her pram on a walk a couple of weeks ago.

5 weeks of you πŸ’›

Will I ever stop counting the time in weeks? πŸ˜‰ Maybe not just yet.

I also realised that we never got any photos like this when Em was born - only selfies of me and her together. She may not be a tiny baby any more, but I can still grab a cute in-arms cuddle.

Books, babies, coffee: some of my favourite things. 

Blessed when she's quiet/milk drunk and will sleep on me as I'm getting writing done. 

(Not pictured: my laptop balanced precariously on my left knee.)

Our first big car journey out of the house today to granny's. Our 3-year-old cousin wasn't too fussed, but we got lots of cuddles from everyone else 😎πŸ‘ͺ

Stop growing up so quickly 😒

Yesterday she was 4 weeks old and tomorrow she will be a month by dates

(Also, how have I been keeping a small human alive with just my milk this last month??)

Currently reading...

Way too many books at once πŸ˜‚ And yes most of them are fantasy books, both in the physical and on my Kindle and depending on my mood. 

I am loving the creative, visceral description in A Conjuring of Light that, despite it taking a while to get through the first half, I've been racing through the second half and want to keep myself in this world.

Same with The Affair of the Mysterious Letter by Alexis Hall. My kind of style and voice! 

I've had the last Raine Benares book for ages; I was looking for an opportunity to start it. And I was late to the party, but there's also the latest Skulduggery Pleasant book that I've started reading.

Any good books on your list/s at the moment?
