Moving to Newcastle was the best decision we ever made - we’ve been amazed at the amount of love and support we’ve had (and needed in the past few years) from the people here. . BUT . I miss my friends. . The besties from home (England). . The little social circle that I’d spent years building since I arrived in Sydney 10 years ago. . Making friends when you’re 39 isn’t as easy as it was when I was 13. . I find it hard to trust people. I’ve been let down by many. . I get anxiety about the fact that when I do try to get to know new people, I might not remember their name or the last conversation we had (thanks, chemo brain). . I’m kind of an intense friend - I give a LOT but expect a lot too. . I get dating anxiety at the thought of meeting up with new friends, even though I bloody love it when I make the effort. . The people that instantly put me at ease and ‘get me’ are fellow cancery people. Lord, I love them. But we’re an anxious bunch, some of us I mean. . I miss the days of being 13 when there was always someone to play with. . How the hell do 39 year old women find local potential future besties? . . . . . #whereareyou #futurebestfriends #mates #meetingnewpeople #meetingnewfriends #newcity #feelinglonely #lifestyleblogger #mumfriends #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #uniteinmotherhood #mumlife #momlife #mumsofinstagram #mumsofig #mumsofinsta #bestfriendgoals #bestfriendsforever #bestfriend #momfriends #mums #moms #nearly40 #approaching40 #mumsgroup #feelingnostalgic #girlfriends #girlfriendneeded

My poor baby! 😥 Third day of his fever but paracetamol seems to help bring his temperature back down. Fingers crossed my little man gets better soon. 🤞🏻 . . #baby #babyboy #myeverything #mylove #mom #momlife #momof3 #momofboys #mum #mumlife #mumofboys #mumofthree #precious #blessed #grateful #thankful #gorgeous #cute #cutebaby #love #adorable #socute #family #ill #sick #sickbaby #vlogger

2 o’clock hurry the hell up cause this mini devil becomes daddy’s problem. She’s currently lying on the ground screaming cock(socks but no matter how hard I try to get her to say it properly it never works and she just shouts cocks even louder🙃)! Her sock got wet cause she spilt her juice and now she’s fuming and wanting new socks on but I can’t find matching ones. Love my life😬 • • • • #dailyparenting #motherhood #parenting #family #ukmum #honestmotherhood #mumlife #mumblogger #honestparenting #ukparentblogger #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #dailyparenting #motherhoodunplugged #blog #mummyblogger #mumswithcameras #mumsofinstagram #kidsofinstagram #family #familylove #followme

10 beautiful years I had this beautiful piece of pottery in my life. It was my favourite. *sigh* none of people who live in my house can explain what happened. *sigh* I need to live in this moment, be sad, and then get the fuck over it. I’ll have to go back to Nicaragua to pick another one up 🤣 #10years #nicaraguanpottery #2008 #mumlife #illgetoverittomorrow #inthemeantimeilleatsomeworms #brisbaneanyday

Lucky they are cute right😂 #survivalmechanism I got home and used my @flora_remedia calm roll on and just took 5 sedmconds to breathe it all in❤ ready to rock and roll again! #mumlife #begrateful #littlethings #grounding

Riv loves food almost as much as his mummy #foodislife #fuckilovethiskid

Little Miss Harlow loves food. Even if she just licks and throws it hahaha I assure you she loves flavours just like her big brother. Tomato being her number one favourite thing to eat. Harlow also got her first bento lunchbox the other week so yay to fun meals out! And well this mama also love food (drool) so I have way to much fun prepping fun meals for these little babes of mine

Because someone still needs a little reminding... 🙄 The No More Boobie tee on repeat over here and it’s now LIVE on @mondayrose.com.au which is so exciting! We only made a limited amount of these so get in quick kids. 👏🏼 And let’s hope Luna gets the message tonight. #NoMoreBoobieInTheNight #MondayRosé

'Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably' - C.S Lewis This one might be taking this quote literally but it's never too early to get books into your daily runnings. He gravitates towards the bright and sparkly at the moment and the girls love reading their favourites to him. The girls read in bed as part of their night time routine and it's been much easier to do that now I moved the books into their room. . . . . . #quotes #cslewis #reading #lifewithababy #routines #usbornebooks #sahm #mumtothree #mumlife #parenting
