Me and Mine - March 2016

I've no idea why i've never joined in with the Me and Mine project before. For those that don't know about it, it's a project where you capture a picture of your whole family every month. I think it's so important to do this. We seem to take lots of pictures of the kids but we're hardly ever in them ourselves.

March has been a great month for us as a family and for once I have taken quite a few photographs of us all together. We started the month reunited in Australia. The girls and I spent 3 months there and 7 weeks apart from daddy. Hubby came to join us for the last 2 weeks. He landed the day before mother's day.

This picture was when we arrived at our hotel in Sydney after picking daddy up from the airport. It was the first chance that we could get to have proper family cuddles. I just love how happy Eva looks in it.

The next picture was taken on mother's day which we spent in Taronga Zoo. You can find out all about the day on my blog post, Taronga Zoo. It's located with the most stunning backdrop of Sydney's most iconic buildings, so we had to snap some family shots. We had an amazing day there. It was such a fun way to spend mother's day. 

We arrived back home in the UK a week before easter. One thing hubby and I love to do is go for afternoon tea so we booked to have an easter themed, chocolate one at one of our favourite Welsh hotels, The Celtic Manor. It was very tasty to say the least. The hotel was beautifully decorated for spring and easter.

This month seems to have flown by. It's not been the easiest since I've been back from Australia and I have struggled to settle back into family life here. It must be because I was away from home for so long. The girls are doing well though, so that's the main thing.

April should hopefully be a good month. Perhaps the weather will start getting warmer so we can enjoy the outdoors more. We also have a trip away booked for my birthday at the end of the month over the bank holiday weekend.

  1. These are gorgeous photos. I hope you're settling in better back at home now. Enjoy your weekend away at the end of the month!

  2. Lovely photos. Hope you find settling in easier during April. I'm sure they're thrilled to have you home x

  3. I love the me and mine project, it's great to have you join in! I hope things are getting a bit easier and you are finding a routine at home now.

  4. The significance of family satisfaction can't be exaggerated in any capacity. For a family to work legitimately, everybody needs to get along and feel at least push and misery.

    1. We most definetly have felt misery which is why we were all separated for so long. We lost my mother in law at the end of last year when I had my new baby. It was all a horrific time and put a great deal of pressure on us as a family which is why we had a break from each other. This was when we were reunited

  5. This looks like a really good idea. I love some of the photos you took, especially the one with the easter bunny x

  6. Gorgeous photos and I love the black dress you're wearing on the one photo!! xx
