We are almost ready for this weekend's photoshoot. It was pretty messy here in St. John's today ❄️ Still, I was lucky enough to make it to my studio really early this morning. Listened to The Cranberries greatest hits album on repeat (about 7 times) ❤️❤️
After today, I can now add ‘covering myself in glitter’ to the list of weird things Instagram made me do.
In case you’re wondering, it’s a very long list.
But wouldn’t life be boring if we weren’t all just a little bit weird?
Today’s glitter smothering fun is in aid of a really important cause being highlighted by @just.isla.and.i and her #objectsfororgans hashtag.

I’ve added the link to my Instagram stories, in case anyone (in the UK) would like to add their name.
I’m sure a few of you will remember I posted a while back about how traumatic bath times were with this little man.
He used to scream inconsolably as soon as we began to get him undressed and for the whole bath time.
Well.... as you can see from this picture we have had a massive turnaround in the last couple of weeks and bath time has become so much more enjoyable.
He now loves having a splash and float about, its now become a real lovely time to spend together as the reflux seems to not bother him in there anymore so tears are limited. 💗
It was the end of a long day yesterday. There was literal chaos going on all around. A record was playing that we used to listen to all. the. time. In our dating years and early marriage. Even much past that, but it just hadn’t been played in awhile (The Postal Service). We just kind of stopped and hung on for dear life for a few minutes. Didn’t know my oldest snapped a picture. Thankful for what she caught. Thankful for this life full of difficult and beautiful.
Hang in there mamas everywhere. What you are doing is important work. And it’s ok to fall down. Over and over again. Much good is to be done by asking forgiveness, and modeling grace and restoration from our mess.
Non esistono persone PERFETTE, ma esistono persone SPECIALI.
Quelle che ti vogliono bene, nella loro semplice umiltà. Quelle che riescono ad illuminare ogni tuo momento, anche il più nero.
Quelle che regalandoti il meglio di sé, riescono a tirare fuori il meglio di te. [cit.]
Sono grata perché ho avuto occasione di incontrare tantissime persone speciali, alcune le vedo tutti i giorni, alcune no, ma so che mi accompagnano con il pensiero ed io accompagno loro. #feliceadesso
Snow days will always be my jam like no other. We woke up to about 4 inches of snow and you couldn't wipe this smile off my face even if you tried. And the fact that we've had a long 5 day weekend isn't too darn shabby, either. 😊 #gratefulheart#abmlifeisbeautiful#snowyday#wintervibes
There might have been a teeny bit of snow today 😬
Love how the gorse flowers are signalling the start of spring - yet the covering of snow is suggesting that winter will be with us a little while longer.....❄️ _____________________

How do you get #aquietshadow in your photo when there is no sun for weeks? Make your own! I am an old school soul so I used paper and made a stencil with stars, which I then projected on the wall using a flashligh on my phone 😁 And I am holding a bunch of fairy lights to add a little more magic. Because I believe that we can all reach to the stars if we try a bit. See the behind the scenes in my Stories Higlighs if you like! Also, extra points for those who see Ursa Major ⭐
We’ve had snow today, a lot of snow. I got stuck in the scariest traffic of my life and white knuckled it the whole way home. When a 20 minutes journey takes over an hour you sure feel a little trapped. I was really envious of anything that would be able to fly and escape the horrors on the road, but to be fair, they’d probably all have been grounded by the huge flakes of snow anyway 😅 tell me, how was your Tuesday? F for freedom #rosiehardychallenge#make_more_magic
Hello from quarantine, aka our front step.
It’s not really that bad - although Dan had flu over the weekend I’ve got away with a dry cough and croaky voice (touch wood, touch wood, touch ALLLL the wood).
It has been a good excuse to just eat children’s food though - we’ve been dining on potato waffles, blueberry pancakes and cheesy bean jacket potatoes. Why is it about sickness that makes you want food from childhood?
In other news, I’ve been thinking about how I can better provide value for you guys, and today I did phase one of that improvement 👍🏻

Self-love can look a million different ways. Today mine looks like finally getting a solid nights sleep, an oversized mug of coffee, intention planning, stand-up comedy, oils, & the sweetest puppy snuggles ✨
Thank you for all the love for the wreath yesterday!! It’s now proudly on my front door 😍 I wish it was this sunny today, everytime we get a sunny day it’s followed by a rainy one 😩
Tonight I am making 2 which will be for sale and I have my bucket of faux flowers at the ready 💐💐
Apparently it’s going to snow down south tonight, so I need all the spring colours I can get!
Here's an astronomical tip for all my UK based friends. Look directly South over the next few nights. Orion should be excellently visible. (That's Orion in my hands) And tomorrow is the new moon so look out for that! After a very busy Monday, I've had a really peaceful Tuesday. I've managed to squeeze in both yoga and a run around work. I'm about to sit down to some edamame burgers from Marks & Spencer's (not sponsored- they are just incredible! If you're struggling with Veganuary, pop these in your basket!) and then I'm off to rehearsal.

you are starting to communicate more... you wave goodbye, blow kisses and shake your head no when you don’t want any more food. you hug all of your dolls and stuffed animals and rock them back and forth (melt my heart), you dance bounce to music and play a crawling version of chase with your brothers! you light up our home baby girl! #adelia_andachair
