Me & Mine September

September is over already, in one way this month ran away with us and in another it crawled by slowly.
There have been some big changes in our household this month, all of which have left us wiped out.

September saw our little guy begin his twice weekly trips to play school. He seems to have settled right in although we had a drop off last week where he became a bit hysterical when I went to leave but I'm hoping it was down to the fact that it was me doing the drop off when so far it had been my mam or the OH. Being at work, I miss some of the drop off's and collection's, honestly it's like a little grey cloud over the wonderful event that is Luke beginning his school life but such is life and unfortunately I have to go out to work and it's a sacrifice I have to make.

The OH also started back at college this month for a year long course that will hopefully get him where he want's to be this time next year.It's been tough getting used to this, as at least 3 mornings a week we all have to be up and out for 8am, the OH heads off to college and I drop Luke to my mam or sister and follow on to work. We are both travelling to city now in the mornings but because the OH generally heads straight to work after college we can't travel together. He's been flat out these past few weeks between work and settling into his new academic routine and we haven't seen much of him but it's all for a better future for all of us. It does mean though that on Tuesdays we have our break at the same time so we get half an hour together and get a coffee and enjoy chatting away from home and toddler free.

We celebrated some family birthdays this month so there has been some birthday cake consumed, none of which is good for my waist line but what the hell!

We also managed a date night this month with dinner and a tickets to see a favourite comedian of ours in Cork Opera House. If you have never heard of Al Porter, check him out, I haven't laughed that much in a long time.

My best friend also had a gorgeous baby girl this month and she is just perfection, so welcome to the world baby Sadie :) (No it didn't make me broody, we are still suffering from sleepless nights here!)

I feel like October will bring some calmness to our lives, although we will still be hectic and hopefully some more positive changes are on their way, I feel like we will be more settled into our new routine.

So here we are in September, tired but happy:

This month Luke loves:
  • One Directions latest song, we listen to it at least 5 times a day
  • Watching Tarzan
  • Climbing trees with his Grandad
This month Dad loves:
  • Starting college
  • Winning a copy of the new Fifa
  • Gloria Jeans White Chocolate Oreo
This month Mum loves:
  • Aromatherapy, I'm building a nice collection of essential oils now
  • Colouring, it's so relaxing
  • Return of X Factor



  1. Ah these are gorgeous happy smiley photos of the three of you. When my girls both first started nursery they used to get a little unsettled but I had reports that as soon as I had gone they were playing happily. We love the new one Direction song here too! x

    1. Thanks Katie :) Luke proclaimed this morning that he loves One Direction and he loves Niall haha! Thankfully he seems to settle in play school as soon as we have left xo

  2. Such lovely happy photos! I love colouring too :) xx

  3. Missing pick up and drop off is really hard isn't it - I only get to do Kitty's one day a week and it's the highlight of my week!

    1. It is tough, he only goes 2 afternoons at the moment I usually miss both but hopefully next year when he's 5 days I'll get to do them at least one day a week :)
