Father’s Day Gift Guide (2017)


Father’s Day is just around the corner and for us it’s our first ever one which will make it that extra bit special! The problem we have though, is that Daddy S HATES novelty gifts, so no mugs / keyrings etc, which makes buying just that little bit more difficult! So, it’s time for me to think a bit harder…

Operation “get my body back” – Month 1


A month or so ago I decided enough was enough! It was time to stop being a couch potato and hiding under baggy jumpers and start getting fit, so that I was able to fit into my pre-baby clothes for when I started work in 2 months time. I joined the gym, and started looking at what I was eating.…

You have to be in it to win it, right?


Brilliant bloggers? I can think of lots! Since I started my blogging journey 9 months ago there have been many bloggers who have inspired and influenced me, in all aspects of my life, but especially parenting. Those who have made me realise that it’s ok to want to be a working mum, those who share their true experiences and make…

When you realise that you’ve let yourself go…..


A few weeks ago it dawned on me that nothing in my wardrobe fits. NOTHING! I have spent most of winter & spring in the same baggy t-shirts / jumpers and jeans, and it’s been great. All my lumps and bumps have been covered, and I haven’t really thought much about it. Then suddenly I realised that I go back…

Happy 25th birthday Organix!


I recently came across Organix when I was on the search for healthy snacks for my 9 month old. I hadn’t heard about them before, but apparently they’ve been around for 25 years! I think it’s really important to know what i’m feeding the little man, and therefore I always make sure that I check ingredients, and the ethos of…

Our SS17 clothing haul (9-12 months)


Since the little man was born, I haven’t had the chance to go out and buy many clothes for him. We were given so much stuff when he was born, and the grandparents / aunties have gone overboard at times, so we’ve not needed much. Count yourself lucky I hear you say? Well yes, I should, but part of me…

When did I become invisible?


I’m not exactly sure when it happened, and it took me a few weeks to realise, but suddenly, as soon as I had pushed a baby out, people didn’t want to know about ME anymore. Family and friends who used to call me for a chat, ask me to go to dinner / shopping, all of a sudden didn’t want to know about…

My top 5 teething products


Anyone who has read my previous posts will know that we had a very early teether! His first two teeth came through at 3 months old and we were not prepared at all! Fast forward to 9 months old and we have just had tooth number 7 pop through – and boy has this one been tough (and taken its…

Stroller review – Silver Cross Zest


At 7 months pregnant when we purchased our babies travel system, I didn’t think that 9 months later I would be going back out to buy a stroller. I thought that the mega bucks we were spending on the system would be all that we needed – I was very wrong! Fast forward 9 months, and having just booked our…
