The best bits. 

I just want to clarify about my Instagram. I’ve heard that people have said ‘oh Cara the one with the perfect house, family, life’ this is hilarious to me. You do know that Instagram is the highlights right? 

My real life day. No filter.

I woke up this morning feeling very tired and hungover. We woke up at 9am which is the latest time in months, which annoyed me. Si was taking Harbor to play golf, which annoyed me. Sonny catapulted his cereal off his spoon across the dining room, which annoyed me and we had a busy family day planned, which annoyed me.

I was so annoyed I stopped talking.   I just felt like today was gonna be one of those days. The ones where the kids fight and squeal, Si moans on about a fault with the car or how he can’t possibly paint the bedroom as he has lost faith in my choice of paint. 

We went to Broadway, which is where we had our first house. We bought it when Harbor was 3 months old and renovated it to sell on 18months later. This little Place is very special to us and I feel lucky that we once lived here. It also makes me want to move again. I love moving. (We are on our 3rd house so far) 

We had a walk around and then had lunch at Russell’s fish and chips before heading to Broadway park so Sonny could cut his knee open in true Sonny fashion. Which was bad but even worse was he bled on my cardigan. My favourite cardigan. 


Harbor managed to back chat nearly every single sentence of mine. ‘No means no’ ‘NO means Nooooo’ ‘HARBOR!!!’ So obviously we posed for an Instagram ‘perfect family picture’ 

We then went to my mums for a late roast lunch. The boys refused to eat any of it. (Possibly down to the chips for lunch situ) My mums puppy got a taste for my body butter and relentlessly licked my legs. My not sleeping after my night shift kicked in and suddenly I could barely keep my eyes open so we had to head home. 

I’m now in bed. 7pm. I am normal. I show you the pretty bits, the best bits. You don’t want to see me ironing or having a poo.

    don’t sweat people slagging you off, I swear some women who aren’t into makeup/fashion/interiors just want those who are to feel bad about it.
