New Family

On Friday 26th August I safely delivered our beautiful little girl into the world. The last two and a half weeks have been a whirlwind as we get to grips with life as a new family, and as I recover from one of the hardest but most rewarding things I’ve ever had to do in my life.

Mummy and daughter

I love her so much already, and she is one amazing little girl. We’re slowly finding our feet – I actually cooked myself dinner for the first time a few nights ago, and did a little gardening too – and finding a new normality amidst the chaos (including living without hot water for a week after our 33-year-old boiler finally bit the dust). Life is different now. Harder, more demanding, but better for having our daughter in our lives.

Bear with me. My Smallest Smallholding is having to take a back seat as I adjust to life as a mummy. We’ll get there though. Autumn is just around the corner and I hope it’s going to be magical.
