soundtrack of life: song twelve




The music that you listen to and surround yourself with is the soundtrack to your life.

But right now, Little Man, you are just too little to really know about it.
Other than that you like listening to it.
And that you like Mummy singing to it.
Which probably means that your musical tastes still need to be developed a bit.

Each week Mummy and Daddy are choosing a song which has some significance to you.

home sweet home

Home is where the heart is,
so they say.
And I completely heart mine.

It isn't perfect.
It could be bigger.
It could have nicer furniture,
and a larger kitchen
and better parking.

But it's home.
And like I said,
I love it.

"the best blog advice I have ever received is..."

. . . to write for yourself.
I wish I could remember the exact person 
who shared that particular piece of blogging wisdom with me,
it's not exactly a rare piece of advice,
but I do think it's a good one.

this week baby i promise...





This week baby, I promise. . .


. . . to take you to the park,


at least twice, 


so that you can play on the swings. 




This week baby I promise is the brain child of Mum of One
They rest are here.

guilty pleasures

Guilty Pleasures?
Surely the fact that they're guilty implies that you might not want to share them.
That they might be a secret card
played very close to your chest.


I realised that I have one very big guilty pleasure.
A self indulgent secret.
My little hidden treasure.
My own personal space.
That very few people know about.

your thirty-second week


It seemed like you had a lot to say for yourself all of a sudden.

"i cannot live without....."

. . . my family.

It's a lame answer I know. 
I tried really hard to think of something witty.
BritMums challenged us to think of just one thing,
and I guess I sort of cheated too,
as well as being unoriginal.

this week baby I promise. . .




This week baby, I promise. . .


. . . to play with you at bath time,


and not just watch you play 


while I think about what I'm going to watch on TV 


once you have gone to bed.




This week baby I promise is the brain child of Mum of One
But she is off on her holidays this week, lucky devil.
So there's no link up but I'm still promising.
I've kept them all so far so I don't want to lose my momentum.

Correction: She is so committed that she's still set up the linky from her holiday.
They rest are here.

not staying silent this sunday

I'm breaking my own rules and not staying silent this Sunday.
That's because I have been tagged by mum2babyinsomniac and Mummy Daddy and Me Makes Three
in the Save the Children No Child Born To Die Campaign.

Mummy From The Heart and Hello It's Gemma have set the challenge 
to get 100 bloggers to write 100 words 
in support of the campaign.

a happy memory

I have many happy memories with my little boy.
He has changed our lives completely 
and it seems like everyday there is another memory 
that I want to capture and keep forever.

But when we're talking of real happy memory making days
I don't really think I've had a better one than my wedding.

"if i could start my blog over, i would...."

. . . . like many people I suppose, keep some stuff the same and change others.

I really do think that the most important thing about blogging 
is the writing .
Writing about what you love and writing it honestly.
And I definitely wouldn't change what I write.

this week baby i promise...



This week baby, I promise. . .

. . . to read you a book every single day,


and not only at bedtime 


when you're too tired to enjoy it.




To see all the other mummy resolutions this week go to Mum of One.

shoes

The shoes people wear often say a lot about that person, I think.
I've always liked that phrase about trying to walk a mile in someone else's shoes.
Because I think that shoes are so personal,
just like you lot in life is personal.

And lets be honest,
Cinderella is proof positive
that the right pair of shoes
can completely change your life.
