Her curls are slowly starting to grow (at a pace). Part of me is happy it’s so slow as it keeps her looking all baby still, but part of me feels a bit peeved as it’s all growing at the back and not the front - can’t even sweep a fringe back with a clip so she’ll quite possibly be sporting a dodgy mullet ... Her curls are slowly starting to grow (at a 🐌 pace). Part of me is happy it’s so slow as it keeps her looking all baby still, but part of me feels a bit peeved as it’s all growing at the back and not the front - can’t even sweep a fringe back with a clip so she’ll quite possibly be sporting a dodgy mullet sometime over the next year or so... 🌀
At least she can wear her bonnets a while longer as Chris tells me that I can’t use bonnet bereavement as a valid reason (or any reason) for having more babies 🤷🏼‍♀️
How long did it take your little ones to grow a mane? 🦁

Yep, we really did, and thanks to all your suggestions and tips it all went so well, it was a blast (though we did get very lucky with the weather which I’m sure helped ).
It was our finale of the Summer holidays, because according to social media, my wall calendar, the email School sent today and finally, my sanity, there’s a return to School happening tomorrow.
So how are you feeling about it?
As always, a massive mash up of mixed feelings here, I love the fresh start and dare I say it, routine that September brings, but I also find the turn of the seasons and losing Summer really difficult.
And Barney starts school tomorrow. He’s so so ready and honestly, I’m not a cold hearted ice queen but we are all ready (he’s also just pulled the entire living room curtain pole away from the wall whilst trying to climb up the curtains 😬).
I did my little bit of grieving for losing my preschooler when he finished Nursery, but I’m full of optimism and happiness for him, I know he’ll thrive in this next stage of his life.
How do you feel about the return of school and routine? Ready to embrace Autumn and routine or wishing Summer holidays had no end? Or maybe a bit of both? •

So it turns out that packing for camping is a bit like moving house, there’s piles of annoying practical ‘stuff’ everywhere, littering up the stairs and hallway and I’m not convinced it’s all going to squeeze into the car.
The kids are at that annoying stage of jumping on it all and creeping off with random things (why is a £6 camping light suddenly the most exciting thing in the world, over all those pretty wooden toys?!) that will no doubt be essential and be missing when we arrive, and I’ll find it all hidden in their beds when I get back.
Luckily we are only going somewhere 40 minutes away and my gin is packed somewhere very safe and away from them... wish me luck for tomorrow 🙏🏻😬

I love how sharing stories with them brings back all my own happy childhood memories- sitting together reading the Mice of Brambley Hedge, looking through Lavinia’s Cottage and then adding our new favourites like Jon Klassen, and the magical Emily Winfield Martin.
I’ve just managed to pick up 90’s classic Rosie’s Babies too, but what are your favourites? We can never have too many stories. 🖤 #WHPstudy •

We'll be heading for two nights with lots of friends who have kids the same age, so it'll be chaotic, but I have no doubt there will be lots of happy memories to make. These personalised initial paper bag style rucksacks from @notonthehighstreet will be ideal to take with us on our little adventure, as they have plenty of pockets and compartments inside to store our essentials and for Willa to stow away her treasures. I love a bit of twinning with Willa so these are perfect in the adult and mini sizes, and I love that they are unique to us with our initials on. This summer we have stayed at home, and I've found myself feeling envious of all of you heading out on holiday, but staying in Yorkshire hasn't stopped us exploring and taking lots of trips to our favourite places as there is so much on our doorstep here. Have you braved camping with little ones? Any top tips you can give me for survival are much appreciated... #ad #noths #thinkthoughtful

Obviously she probably won’t be that bothered and will be happy just chasing a balloon about, but you know... (it’s all for me really 😉) •


.. and in a separate subject, as I’m asked a lot, the concertina wall hook was from eBay and cost about £5 though did need a thorough sand down! •

I suppose, growing up, all I ever really wanted was to be a Mother myself- and knowing that I got these three makes me feel wonderfully privileged.
I was adopted at birth by my own amazing parents who gave their everything to give us a safe, loving, happy childhood and adulthood, and I can only hope and try to give these three the same.
We may not have lots of money in the bank, but we have a hell of a lot of love to surround them with which counts the most doesn’t it 🖤 (and anyone else not feel grown up enough either, does that just never change even though my body and face does?!) •

Just been reading a blog post by Instagram friend @ohsolovelyhelen_ on why she deleted her account with 49K followers and it’s a compelling read.
I really think that comparing our own selves and accounts to others based on followers or ‘likes’ makes me sad and is so so detrimental to our well being and I don’t want to be that person.

I began this feed pre-algorithm and built up supposed followers who either don’t really exist, or see or interact with what I do and I must admit it really leaves me feeling flat on occasions.
But then, actually, some of my very favourite feeds are not the ones with the big follower/likes and I think the whole bloody thing is skewed in so many cases.
I honestly really really really try not to look at follower numbers or ‘likes’ these days if I can help it as I do think it’s so unhealthy. I deleted 500 ‘ghost’ accounts who were ‘following’ this feed, but it took ages and it made no difference to me in the algorithm and I just thought ‘sod it’ in the end.
Regardless of all of that, I’ll still be here posting and keeping up with you, and I’m giving anyone feeling like the above a virtual hug.
Hopefully those of you who do see my posts think they are alright 😉

So my question to you is, would you rather have 1 million followers or 1 million pounds?
How do you feel about your account and the whole follower/ likes thing?

Our house is 1960’s and I’m keen to really inject that feel into our living room when we eventually get the walls plastered- what you currently see as background is in fact grim grey plasterboard, I keep it ‘deliberately industrial’ in here (or not...) Apart from eBay, has anyone got any good website suggestions for sourcing some mid century pieces?
Also, wonky pictures, it doesn’t matter how many times I straighten the damn things 🙄 #ourkidslivehere

#ourkidslivehere and it would be aces if you join in.
There’s already some beautiful accounts taking part and it’s a lovely way to find new accounts with a similar aesthetic to follow too.
This month I’ve donated a @velveteen_babies droplet garland for the post that myself and Hannah love best- to be in with a chance then simply be following the both of us and my @velveteen_babies account too and use the hashtag on any relevant posts! Simple. ( @velveteen_babies is my other account and what I do to earn an honest living if you didn’t know already). We’d be over the moon if you join along with us. 😘

Silence is not good (unless they are sleeping /eating). Silence means something naughty is happening. Something like me going upstairs and finding the boys had poured a full bottle of my Molton Brown on each other’s heads.
2. Inheriting a shiny surface floor was not in any way a good thing. Every single crumb is magnified by x1000 (and there’s a fair few crumbs and a few glued on Rice Krispies especially due to the summer holidays so...) 3. You will embrace filling the garden with every outdoor toy imaginable because it buys you time. It will suddenly be ok to chalk on every outdoor surface everywhere, because it will keep them occupied and industrious.
4. The washing pile and dishwasher pile are always full.
5.I’m pouring a gin.
6.and having a bath, but not my Molton Brown * see point 1.
7. But there’s nothing quite as scrumptious as their little faces curled up in bed fast asleep, or when they do a light up the room smile as illustrated here.
Please tell me it’s as crazy in your homes too? Any summer holiday survival tips?! •

My kids are wearing it.

I don’t know if you feel the same, but I don’t feel half the guilt buying them clothes as I do when I buy for myself? (Plus theirs are way more fun)

8 years ago when I had Felix, I thought the best you could buy for kids that wasn’t covered in cartoon stuff was Mini Boden (no judgement, I know it’s crazy popular and at the time I bought some), but then I downloaded Instagram and found this whole new world and it was responsible for my ‘hobby’. Many of my mates think I’m mentally insane/ crazy/ just don’t get it with what I buy the offspring but nothing gives me more pleasure than dressing my kids. I blame my Mum as she did similar with us, hand-making my clothes when I was a girl.

When you see a stranger with a child wearing the brands you dress your own kids in there’s a silent high five of approval and a knowing glance, also you take a second to think that you must already ‘know’ them from these squares somewhere!
Has anyone else found that to be the case?! However, many people just don’t understand ~ last week one kid at Nursery asked why she was wearing ‘boy’ shoes and not pink glittery ones.. - tan Saltwaters 🤷🏼‍♀️ (Equally I know it’s not everyone’s ‘thing’ and I appreciate that too.) #whenyouknowyouknow

And I have just binned Felix’s School shoes which have been hanging on by a thread since about March, grass stained (once white now grey) shirts are now also out of sight and mind 🙌🏻
For the next 6 weeks though, t-shirts, shorts and sandals will be the only clothing of their choice, and I’ll be once again on the hunt for stylish but as indestructible as possible School shoes. Camper were the best we’ve had, the Doc Martins haven’t been so great in quality but looked nicer... and this year I’ll be buying a pair for each boy 💸😬
Anyone had a good experience with any brand? I hate being so fussy about a school shoe should look as well as being functional but I just am. Sometimes wish I wasn’t so bothered about how things look.. but I’ll never change. 🙈😬 # sorrykidsnevergoingtoownlightupshoes •

We decided on our eldest child’s name Felix immediately, it means lucky and it was the boys name we both loved the best. At the time it was a rare name but I keep seeing it go up in the popularity charts (he would have been Florence if he had been a girl), and then second son Barney was trickier to choose.
We both loved the name Cassius but ended up going with Barnaby (I worked with a lovely lady who had a teenage son called Barney and loved that it sounded a bit cheeky), and then finally Willa- my Dad is called William and I loved that it was a slight derivative from that.
Xanthe and Agnes were also in contention. Blue (her middle name) was a bit of a joke that just stuck.
funnily enough there’s another Felix and another Barnaby at school, but I’m yet to meet another Willa though everyone always assumes she’s called Willow... What are your kids names or your favourites? Did you find girls or boys names easier to pick? •

Ahh Saturday, that day where I have some weird false vision of drinking coffee leisurely reading a magazine whilst all three kids play in harmony.
Reality: coffee microwaved twice as didn’t get chance to drink it and forgot it was even in the microwave, kids alternating scrapping with each other, full pack of nappies emptied into the hallway and an open pot of hair wax about to be spooned by a finger into smallest person’s mouth. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way (and the chaos means I really enjoy that gin all the more at the end of the day).
Please tell me your lives are equally chaotic and my Saturday morning isn’t at odds with the rest of Instagram?! •

Summer 2018, not so many indoor posts happening at the moment, because inside is a wreck.
I’ve been committed especially to being outside and leisurely neglecting the housework, Aperol Spritz, actually watching football when we win (..am only a fair-weather supporter), wearing dresses with buttons, chasing sunshine in floral surroundings, Love Island and chasing annoying flies around my house trying to extract them.
Any of you share my highlights of this sunny weather so far?
Today we travelled over to @yorkshirelavender which is such a sweet place and less than hour away from us.
During all my years on Instagram I’ve never been to a lavender field before 🤭 (unforgivable so please forgive me the cliche, but it was worth the wait 💜) #itsprimupnorth #WHPjourney •

(No judgement here, I’m just curious!) Are you high street all the way, buying lots of things over a season?
Or do you prefer to buy less but make sure you buy beautiful artisan brands that can be sold on or handed down?
For me, I buy as much as I can from small brands- brands like Misha and Puff, @apolina_kids , @main_story_uk , Bobo Choses.. (I could list so many more-because I’ve seen first hand how much care and attention to detail and quality goes into what they do. )

Don’t get me wrong, I love finding pieces to mix up from H&M and Zara, but I never quite feel quite as in love with them.
I can honestly say that I’ve had 5x more wear and longevity from these small brands than I’d have had otherwise so to me it justifies saving up a bit and buying them.
What are your favourite children’s brands?
Also, do let me know if you have a resale account or know of any good ones 🙏🏻 (I’m sure everyone would like to know!) 😘

Got to finally meet so many long standing Instagram friends yesterday which was just ace, although I did feel the nerves before walking in (‘what if they think I’m an idiot/I say something stupid/etc etc). It definitely makes me think I need to invest in more ‘experiences’ rather than ‘stuff’ although it was dangerous meeting with @apolina_kids 😉
You were all absolutely lovely and I’m so glad I made it down. Thanks especially to my partners in crime @main_story_uk and @kellyanngoyette .

Saw this quote pop up lots on my feed and it resonated with me as it probably did with you if you saw it- ‘You get 18 delicious summers with your children.
This is one of your 18.
If that’s not perspective then I don’t know what is.’
- Jessica Scott.

One day my parents play house will be left unclimbed upon, and one day they’ll all just want to go and hang out with their friends, and I’m unprepared for that day, but as with life, we take each precious day as it comes.

My Dad is 70 in August and I’m very aware of how totally precious these days are to us all. They will be just a sweet memory one day, one to retell and recreate hopefully to grandchildren of my own, and perhaps just a glimmer of a happy memory to my own little ones.
As I get older I’m so much more conscious of the passage of time and soaking up the sometimes mundane moments - is anyone else? #ourwhimsicaldays

If you told me this time last year I’d finally be driving and that I’d have met a group of brilliant friends through school- all our kids getting to grow up together going crazy and we all ‘get it’,
I would never have believed it.
I love having Harrogate (where we moved from) close by, but prefer the more laid back pace to life in Knaresborough which has a completely different feel and always feels a bit sleepy and you can feel the history.
It’s a town that has so many pubs per square mile, most the type of places where tumbleweed probably blows across if the door opened, but to balance it out there’s a few lovely ones too like this one which has a substantial gin menu.
Do you still live in the town that you grew up in? #itsprimupnorth

My ‘baby’ Barney is suddenly getting all grown up and it’s a reminder of how quickly time goes by. My feed is full of newborn babies and pregnancy and I feel like I’ve travelled through those days in a blink of an eye and now instead dealing with buying uniforms rather than tiny baby grows and into a new chapter.
But with my own children getting that bit older, it gives me a little bit more freedom to do some things for myself, which includes finally heading down to London on Saturday and I will finally get to meet lots of you (hooray) 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #whp🌈

They also avoid me when they see a phone/camera in my hand, and now pull a face like this 😬😑 if they do see a camera.
Anyone else have a feed more biased towards the ‘slightly more willing to be photographed’ child? •

I’m not one of those deep thinking aloof types (you’d never have guessed 😳) but I would definitely describe myself as a bit of an introvert. I do have to have a bit of an alcoholic fuzz to approach a dance floor and it’s frankly staggering to me that I met Chris as I was always terrible at chatting to strangers way back when.
But I’m always trying to find a bit of joy in the mundane everyday, including taping my phone to the wall and jumping on the bed with overblown peonies because life to me, is for living happily with those who love you just for who you are, yes?
Also I always feel the fear posting silly pictures of myself so don’t think for one minute I’m self confident- the introvert in me is screaming at me right now. Does anyone ever feel totally confident posting a picture of themselves not surrounded by children because I don’t really, but here goes 💗

Much as I’m such a huge admirer of the clever, creative, styled shoots on some of the feeds I follow, I simply don’t have time and I’ve learned not to beat myself up about it.
We used to have a picture on the wall when we were growing up that said ‘you always have time for things you put first’. It’s so true isn’t it?
In my case the housework usually comes last, and my work and my family and friends come first, though I would absolutely love to do a photography course at some point in the future.
Is there anything you just don’t have time for now that you’d like to do one day? •

Had such a lovely morning with this one, usually she’s with my brilliant parents who hang out with her at their house around the corner so I can work, but as she’d passed her sick bug to my Mum (sorry Mum..) we got a bonus morning together.
The breast feeding days are now sadly no longer as she decided she’d had enough, and I’m really happy that it was her decision and although it made me feel really wistful at first, it was time for us to move on.
We did however watch the whole of Love Island on Saturday morning with her snuggled up to me the entire time which was so gorgeous (the cuddles, not so much Love Island...) and it made me realise that every stage has its own magic, trials and happy stuff to soak up. Soak it I do.
Also- not an ad or anything but she’s wearing that bargain £10 dress from the M+S baby girl section, so completely refreshing to find something not covered in flamingo appliqué or garish colours (sadly this dress was about the only thing that wasn’t).
You all pretty know how much of a weakness I have for dressing the kids, but it is nice to find a bit of a healthy balance isn’t it? (especially when she’s at my parents all day playing in the garden and attempting to eat gravel 🙈)

So I thought I’d say Hello!! Taking inspiration from @thisisjules and @sarah_louise_ferg I thought I’d tell you a bit about myself, I’m here as a normal-ish human behind the squares, taking pictures mostly of my more biddable nearly 2 year old Willa, less biddable but more willing 4 year old, Barnaby and less willing and less biddable and lesser spotted Felix age 7.
I’m 36, met Chris when I was 23, we bought a Victorian Terrace with a 95% mortgage and no spare money when I was 25 and spent 10 years renovating which we sold last year.
We bought an ugly south facing 60’s house last year and have big plans to renovate it over time and we are at the annoying bit where we have still got inherited areas of the house which make me feel sick just looking at them (brown stair carpet and polystyrene coving and orange pine), areas where we’ve started work- we’ve changed the layout so have some horrible plasterboard walls waiting for the electrician and I always do the embarrassed ‘oh we are changing all that, don’t look at that’ when people come over.
I love to shop, support small brands, I love to rearrange. My particular loves are interiors and children’s fashion. I’m finally getting back into buying clothing for myself too now I’m retired from pregnancy/breast feeding.
I never get my nails done, I’m shocking at self pampering and I’m far too impatient to spend hours getting ready.
I’m blunt, cry when I laugh and I’m too much of a bloody people pleaser- I’m easily wounded on the inside even if I come across all nonchalant on the outside.
I have very little self control and love doing impulsive things but I’m really organised and self disciplined when I’m working.
I’m an annoying perky morning person and I drink proper coffee every morning as soon as I get downstairs, it’s my treat to myself.
I’m pretty crap at staying up late and like to be in bed by 10.00pm most nights.
Favourite programs to watch are The Bridge, loved The Sinner and I recently Netflix binge watched all of Mad Men years after everyone else watched it. Always have First Dates on record too.
I’m rubbish in high heels and not dainty whatsoever. I like my ankles and I like a cold gin in a tall

I'll never forget the pride in your eyes and the tenderness as you held Felix, our first born, for the first time. He didn't sleep at all that first night and only coffee got us through those first bleary, happy, proud first days of parenthood.
1648 days since you became a Father of two and once again picked up a tiny precious new born son and introduced him to his brother so gently.

621 days since you held your newborn daughter in your arms and our little jigsaw became complete.

All those days we've been coffee reliant, in part thanks to our small and feisty rabble. ​​notonthehighstreet​ is the perfect place to find a thoughtful gift for Fathers Day like this personalised coffee subscription that my little baristas are preparing for their Daddy.

Swapped Miss Coral Bell for Mrs Coral Atkinson on June 5th 2010 when Chris was 29, he turned 30 at midnight.
The sun shone on us that day and we were surrounded by all who loved us then. Some have now passed somewhere unknown but we still feel their presence, some friends remain a part of us always though they now live so far away we can’t hug them in the flesh, some friends remain lifelong and some friends weren’t yet a part of our lives at that point in our lives.

Age 36 I still sleep with a tatty, what was a synthetic cellular blanket that my Grandma (who passed away when I was 5) got me, which is called F.B.
Bizarrely enough, Willa has a massive attachment to a bedtime blanky too and insists on snuggling up with her version, which is much nicer than my old embarrassing F.B.
If you’re wondering what F.B stands for then the answer is Favourite Blanket 🙈
Please tell me I’m not alone. Guessing I might be... 😳

In unrelated news, I’m sat watching the BAFTAS and swooning over Vanessa Kirby’s hair and dress. (and a well deserved award for her role in The Crown which I love). Anyone else watching? Who gets your vote? •

‘Might’ have had a little premenstrual *unreasonable* cry last night when I was desperate to take our annual blossom walk and it started raining as we were preparing to go and I thought I’d miss it.

But we made it just in time on our pilgrimage today, and I coerced instagram husband into action too. I can now relax as I now have pink blooms on my feed. Panic over 🌸 •

Kindness and community. It’s free and it’s why I love Instagram .

Never a day goes by when I read a post filled with honesty and bravery and the comments below are always filled with support and kindness, from people often, that have never ‘met’ in real life. That’s pretty awesome.
Another MASSIVE thing about Instagram is the support we all show to small independent businesses like my own, it still never fails to blow me away and I do my best to also champion and consume as much and many as I can.
One such kindness was a beautiful parcel we received today from @oursensorykids which is run by a treasure Jordan @indigo_hart who sent Wills a beautiful Ice-cream kit filled with lots of lovely things. I do believe she’s running a special offer on them if you check her feed (I’ll pop it on my Stories too). It’s so obvious how much love and care goes into such things.
For all the crappy stuff that we hear about social media, Instagram always has the ability to bring such positivity too..
Taking part in today’s #freeupmyinsta 💗
and nicely fitting in our new # #ourkidslivehere too.. 😉 •
