I'm moving on

It's time to jump ship and start fresh. I've started a new blog (or I've moved Fanciful Discords to a new platform to be more exact)

"I started blogging in 2010 focusing on music - album reviews, gig reviews and random ramblings. I did this casually alongside writing freelance for various online music publications and websites. Overtime my day job became more demanding, the posts became more personal and the random ramblings took over the reviews... Since then, I've written about my experiences with pregnancy and the birth of my baby boy. Although I still have a fascination with music, my posts have moved on to cover lifestyle aspects - life as a mama in particular..."

I'm going to leave this blogspot as it is.

Thanks for sticking with me!

The Playlist | July 2017

I was tempted to review the Fireman Sam theme tune and  'Jelly On A Plate' for this months playlist - but I just managed to regain my mind from mothering mush. My brain has been hijacked by a black sheep and its being scrambled by five little speckled frogs. Wednesday's 'Rhyme Time' baby group went a miss today, for my sanity. 

Michael has gone to Scotland for a sporting event so I'm home alone tonight, and for the rest of the week. I should starfish the bed, catch as many hours sleep as I can ready for the dreaded 1am and 4am feeds. Instead I am making the most out of the free time and lack of any distractions like Orange Is The New Black (omg that series is good!) 

The Beach

The infinite horizon - that's why I love the beach. The blocks of colour - shades of blue, white and grey, the soundtrack of the tide, the sparkling seawater, the fizz of the sea foam, the edge, the freedom. Is there anywhere better?

The Playlist | June 2017

This week has hit us with overwhelming heat. Arlo and I have been hiding from the midday sun and only venturing outdoors when we can shimmy around in the shade. Normally I would adore this weather, the bbq culture, the beach, popsicles - dreamy. Arlo can't handle the high temperatures though and his fresh sensitive skin burns in seconds, the poor little guy is vulnerable. He's currently having a long nap in his swing chair, just wearing his mini shorts (p.s. his half naked chub is so delicious!) 

Wild Flowers

It's definitely summer, you can see it and you can feel it. Whether it's the heat on your skin from the sun or the stuffy smell when rain first falls onto hot plants and tarmac. Wild flowers are blooming and the days stretch late into the night.
