    7 hours ago by traceysblog The Corn maze at glenroe farm is brilliant. The whole place is actually really lovely. Loads of animals, a couple of different playgrounds (one has a massive sandpit and is beside the coffee which sells children's lunch packs), a nature walk, fairy trail and just a lovely family day out in general. Sure isn't it lovely to get a bit of fresh air before you begin a new week  #glenroefarm   #wicklow   #cornmaze   #ipbig

    2 days ago by traceysblog I adore a Saturday with no major plans. Hubby has the car at football so I'm catching up on housey bits so that I can be more productive and get work done in the afternoon. I work best when I'm not surrounded by chaos ✏ So naturally I felt the need to tell you this by sweeping my hair over and taking a dramatic selfy ‍♀️ For the record I also love a Saturday out and about. Sure isn't variety the spice of life

He woke up freaking out that he couldn't find his (exact quote) "Smyths Toys Superstory Book" He's now frantically picking things out and getting really stressed because "I just can't decide because I love 100 things" Yeah, we had to nip that one in the bud. Billys Santa "order" casually came to about 12 grand last night We've told him to pick a few things to ASK Santa for and if he's a good boy hopefully some of them will find there

    3 days ago by traceysblog Thank you for the  #thankfulthursday  nomination  @frillyflossy  I am grateful for a job that allows me to do this. Just simply having lunch with my son and catching up on his morning at playschool. I know so many of my friends that work office hours would tell me to appreciate these times. I do a forty hour week but i do it around my kid. I don't think I'll ever stop thanking the universe for this because its what i dreamt about and hoped for intensely. I write, I help people lose weight and I scribble bits of my life

    4 days ago by traceysblog Look at that weather. Am I the only one happy to have a reason to stay indoors? I've work to catch up on and tea to drink. This little man is loving Umizoomi at the moment, like completely all of a sudden it's his favourite programme. It's actually quite educational which I'm delighted about (Not that I ever give a seconds thought to when he watches 5 episodes of Peppa in a row). He's at the age where he is actually joining in on the things they ask the kids at home to help with. He's getting excited when he

    4 days ago by traceysblog He's the salt to my pepper this man. Don't get me wrong, we have our moments like any couple and life isn't always perfect but I wouldn't change a thing about him (well maybe he'd be better at house work...) People sayy relationships change when you have kids, and they do, but if you can roll with the changes and embrace it you'll find a brand new groove and I bet it will be more meaningful than ever!
