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 […]

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 […]

Bloody Brilliant Blogger – who me?!

The Bloody Brilliant Blogger Tag – Run by Becky and Kimberly the tag is all about showing recognition to the amazing blogs the internet has to offer. Giving their owners a virtual slap on the back and celebrating some flippin’ fantastic posts. It was such a great feeling to be reading a post by Mummy to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

The first month of our weaning journey…….

Weaning (or should I say “introducing solids”) wasn’t something that I had given much thought to until my Week by Week book mentioned it when the little man turned 4 months old. I had also had friends who had weaned their children early, before 6 months, and panicked that I hadn’t even thought about it! […]

8 months into being a mum – how do I feel?

The last 8 months have been an absolute whirlwind, so it’s rare that I get to actually sit down and think about how I actually feel. I can’t believe that in the last 8 months I have given birth, looked after a newborn (and he’s still ok!), and now have an infant who is clapping, […]

Midweek family meals made easy by Dolmio – #Thankgoodness

Midweek meals are the worst to sort out at the moment – mainly due to lack of time and the trillions of other jobs that need doing. I normally don’t start to think about dinner until after lunchtime, and then struggle to make anything of nutritional value due to lack of ingredients and creativity! Step […]
