Mummy Dates Project 2017 - Join In Too!


Oh Hi, 

As part of my New Years Resolution to continue blocking off strict Mummy Time with Darcy, I thought I'd write about it here because, as ever, I plan to document it. You might be new round here so let me tell you, I LOVE TO DOCUMENT THINGS. 

Mummy Dates 2017 Louise Pentland

A lot of things that I document go on my instagram, glitter channel or chatter channel (click on the words for the link there) but often I will snap photos for my private collection (that sounds so seedy, it's not. I just take a LOT of photos every day!), write lists of special things that have happened or journal things on paper. 

To me, documenting is saving memories. I can relax knowing they are recorded somewhere tangible rather than worrying my brain might let them fade away. 

I want to document my Mummy Dates but I'm in a bit of a conundrum because I'm being very firm with my time allocations this year. For example, today is a Saturday and I've marked it as a 'No Filming Day'. I vlog all week to make THESE weekly vlogs, plus I make separate videos for my glitter channel. It's important to have a couple of days not being 'on'. 

Today for our Mummy Date we've kindly been gifted rugby tickets by our friends so I'm taking Darcy to watch her first live match! My friend Clare will be there with Baby Hope (you might have seen her in vlogs) and we're going to get some street food first. It's Darcy's first experience of live stadium sports so it should be a really nice afternoon. 

For me, I think the best way to document it whilst still being completely present in the moment is just to take a few pictures on my phone when the moment strikes and then write a blog post. I'm not going to put put great pressure on myself to take the most amazing best shots ever or to get lots and lots. If I do manage to then hurrah, but if I don't, I won't beat myself up over it. My main goal is special dedicated time with my babe, if I can take a few snaps then hooray! 

Mummy Dates are very fluid. Some weeks there might be lots and it might be big and exciting, but some weeks it might be low key, like watching a film at home on the sofa with laptops closed and social media shut down. Over the year, I'd like to try and blog about it and, if you're a Mama, why don't you as well? A little Mummy Date for you and your little one/s?

If you'd like to take part in this year long project and be supported by this lovely community, here's all you need to do-

1. Do something lovely with your little and document it for your blog in your usual style - no rules, just do your own thing. 

2. Copy and paste the below photo at the bottom of your post with, 'Mummy Dates 2017 Project' linked to this specific blog post. You can make the image tiny or massive.

3. In the comments of this post, link below your blog post and the month you did it in so that in my next Mummy Dates, I can add all the people who are also taking part in the project. If you want to leave a bit about you (eg, Hi, I'm Louise, I love blogging and I'm a Mother of one little girl) then that would be great but you don't have to. 


That's it really! Anyone can join at any time of the year, just include the link and month below so I can keep track. I'll be linking each blog in my posts but if your blog is vulgar or contains themes of an adult nature (you know what I'm talking about), then obviously I'll just be leaving that off and wishing you all the best. 

I love the idea of all of us doing something together, sharing ideas and working on such a heart warming project. 

See you soon with an update of how the rugby Mummy Date went!

Toodlepip!

    2. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

      1) Love Spells
      2) Lost Love Spells
      3) Divorce Spells
      4) Marriage Spells
      5) Binding Spell.
      6) Breakup Spells
      7) Banish a past Lover
      8.) You want to be promoted in your office/ Lottery spell
      9) want to satisfy your lover
      Contact this great man if you are having any problem for a lasting solution

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Welcome! I bet your little lady would love to have some quality mummy time wherever you go. Even just a dedicated story and snuggle counts. Look forward to reading your posts! <3

  3. This is an awesome idea!! I'll take part! I'm Stephanie mommy of a 3yr old boy. I write mostly about fashion,beauty, and life with my silly little sir. We haven't gone on a mommy son date in a while. Need to.

  4. This is so lovely! I like that you're not putting a massive focus on getting the best shots and instead just enjoying yourself and snapping when you can. I look forward to the posts! Was Darcy feeling shy in that first picture? Haha x

  5. Hi Louise. Great post. I am an Auntie, but not a Mummy. I think this is a great idea anyway and I think I may try to so something similar. Block some Saturdays where I take off from social media and just live life for me.

    Have you heard of Project Life? They have an app where you can create full page scrapbook layouts and order printouts of them right from your phone. Soon they are launching books you can order too. I thought about this when you wrote about yout love of documenting and journaling. Project Life lets you do both and it takes up very little time and the result is something tangible you (and your little) can hold and look back on.

    I jusssst started using the app and I have no affiliation with them, I just wanted to share in case you hadn't explored it/heard of it.

  6. I really like this idea! My little girl is Darcies age and she has an 11 month old brother who takes up a lot of my time and I can feel guilty sometimes that she isn't getting enough attention..so setting some time aside for mummy daughter dates would be perfect! My blog is www.lilypadandbow.com and I'll make sure to link back when we do go on our mummy daughter date xx

  7. Well I can't really contribute as I don't have a little one but when my step daughter is with us we make special effort to spend days together as a family and my partner has Daddy days with her too so she's know when she gets time with him alone as well as us all together.

    This is such a sweet project and a great idea when you have such a hectic life online - bring it on!

  15. Hey Louise, I recently went through 6 months of chemo because of breast cancer. The thing I hated most on that time is the times I was too ill to spend 'proper' time with my babies. I have finished my treatment and it's a new year and I have lots of fun stuff planned to do with the kids and seeing this post made me think I should document it all on my blog. So thank you! This is my first post :) https://hayley-sarah.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/mummy-dates-project-2017.html

  21. Ah I love this idea, Louise. I've been blogging on and off for 10 or so years in various different places, but I decided to start afresh this year (after an extended hiatus!) so I'm really enjoying writing again and reading blogs again too. This is a great way to find some like-minded mummas!

  27. Good day,,,,
    Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  29. I felt like ending it i lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage . We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him . He is living away near his work, and he refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope i was emotionally down . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I could and its eating me away and I m starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Noble can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and I also came across several testimonies about this particular man so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Noble . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: templeofjoyandprosperity@gmail.com , Web blog: http://drnoblespell.blogspot.com.ng/. Thank you all for reading.

    Hello
    Rita Carter Thomas, I'm From UK. My boyfriend and I have been getting into little arguments which then later escalated. A lot of which are my fault but I never thought I would lose him because we are in love. He told me yesterday that he loves me but is done. That the fights keep hurting him too much. I can’t believe I hurt him like that and would love nothing more than another chance to prove to him and myself that I will cut out my insecurities that I've brought into this relationship. I did all i could to end this fight between us us, didn't work so i had to seek the help of a spell caster who i met on-line and promised to help me bring him back into my life in 5 days time. i wasn't really sure about this, but i was really desperate that i had to do all that the spell caster asked me to do , it was a surprise to me in Three days i had a knock on the door and to my greatest surprise, it was my boyfriend, the first thing he said was that he has forgiven me and he will never leave me again, ever. Am so full of joy for what this spell caster have done for me, that i want the world to benefit from this. if you need her help you can reach her on (driayaryi2012@hotmail.com) for any thing on relationship or anything you can think of He is very powerful and so real. And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2349057915709 Thanks Dr. Iyaryi
