Coffee Shops With A Baby?

When I was pregnant, and still now actually, I get people telling me you can't do want you want to do now you have a baby. You have to follow their every move and things such as shopping and going for coffee are a huge no no. But do you know what I think to that... rubbish!

If you know Jack and I you'll know we're absolutely addicted to Costa and we pretty much go every week if we can haha. We're terrible at shopping too and Indie became my little shopping buddy from day one. 
First Costa at 3 Weeks Old!
She's always been as good as gold and loves watching all the people go past and seeing what mummy's going to treat her to next. Now she's old enough she just sits with us in a highchair if we go for a coffee somewhere, or happily plays around sat on one of our laps. 
I'm sure it'll become a different story when she's a toddler and starts having those dreaded tantrums and meltdowns. But for now I'm taking full advantage of the fact that she will sit and play nicely while I enjoy my medium hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows haha!

Babies aren't the boss and if you want to go for a coffee do it!

A Bad Blogger and A Busy Weekend!

So yet again I've been a bad bad blogger and not posted in a while *slaps hand*! I was SO busy this weekend that I just didn't have time to sit and write, and then Indie has come down with a strange virus/rash so I had her home with my yesterday too.

So what have we been up to?

Friday I was working and Indie was at nursery with Jack. It ended up being her last day at her current nursery as she had Monday off. She was showing off her new walking skills and everyone was very impressed! 
Saturday Jack was supposed to be out all day getting a tattoo but it got cancelled last minute (yippee haha) so we spent the day as a family. We finally received Indie's first birthday invites so we decided to go on a round trip hand delivering the ones we could. We still had Save The Dates to give out too so we really were like little postmen haha. We did manage to squeeze in a little walk around some woods, although Jack definitely didn't think it through as it was SO muddy... no buggy next time I think!
Sunday I had a luxury baby free day with my two elder sisters! We went on a shopping trip to Lakeside and it was so lovely to spend some quality time with them without the kiddies. Of course we ended up in Ikea and Primark and we all left every shop with a bag full of shopping haha. I've filmed a haul video of what I purchased so definitely check that out below if you're interested!
It was Saturday that Indie's rash appeared. The poor monkey had/has spots all over her including her legs, arms, face and bum. Everyone we've shown pictures to has suggested chicken pox, including my mum who knows everything haha. She's happy in herself though and eating as normal, so I'm just keeping an extra close eye on her for now. Jack's said there were a few off of nursery with similar symptoms so she must have caught it from there.
What did you get up to this weekend?
