    15 hours ago by traceysblog Sleeping in his own bed all night since day two in the house. First I was sad. Then I was delighted. Now I'm somewhere between extremely proud and missing having my baby in the bed. After four and a half years of  #cosleeping  this is huge. I honestly cannot get over it ‍♀️

    19 hours ago by traceysblog Someone here mentioned on my stories that they loved the little "female touches" around the house like this in the bathroom. It made me giggle because I had absolutely nothing to do with this at all Hubby just loves all this stuff and went to  @ikeaie  on his OWN and picked up the unit, decorative bits and towels. He even bought potpourri I'm assuming the next step will be a keen interest in washing clothes and deep cleaning Also would you say we are fans of  @aveenobabyukire   #newhouse

    4 days ago by traceysblog UNREAL dinner. Just 2 syns for mayflower powder (I mixed it with water and used the liquid to mop up all the flavour in the pan and give it a Singapore noodles flavour). Tonnes of speed food in this - bok choy, peppers, mushrooms, onion, ginger and spinach. Chinese 5 spice, soy sauce, garlic, chilli with chicken and prawns. Fresh coriander on top. All done in one pan (bar softening noodles in boiling water for 5 mins) and every bit as nice as a takeaway. I just didn't add the spicy things till the end so Billy had his with

    5 days ago by traceysblog With all the madness of moving and general life over the last few weeks we haven't been to the park in ages. I've become far too accustomed to the warm car and house and let me tell you, my soul needed some fresh air. We had a lovely lunch together ( @jens_journey_ie  gorgeous tomato and basil soup, but I make it in the slow cooker) and toasties and now we have the whole playground to ourselves. It's a snuggly afternoon/evening ahead because I've got work to do. We also have an earlier start than normal tomorrow so a bath and early

    5 days ago by traceysblog Sunday night already. Ready for another busy week ahead. I can't believe we've gotten so much done in a week. Hoping to just enjoy a bit more of normal life in the house this week. This past week was wonderful but BUSY. Sure how was it going to be anything different The whole house is really really coming together now. I just need to build up the confidence to even *think* about approaching the attic room. It's literally a dumping ground and I'm quite enjoying pretending it's not even there

Thrilled to have the  @ikeaie  drawers set up in our room and now that Billy is sleeping in his own room (no you're crying) I can get back to my days of watching YouTube and Netflix in bed. 'Tis the little things isn't it?  #newhome

    7 days ago by traceysblog When you're being good and  @centra_irl  send you this package of goodies! They look amazing Billy had the pizza last night and those who tried it said it was delish. Its seriously good value at €8 for two of those pizzas! I've put the rest of them away for over Christmas for when we have people over. The packaging is FAB. Definitely consider buying some lovely bits from the new  #InspiredByCentra  range at your local store. I'm impressed!
