The best parent memes 

Parenting, it’s a funny old thing. Here’s some of the best parenting memes around… 

Blisters suck 

It’s that time of the year again when we get our tootsies out, expose the old pasty feet and put on our sandals. I’m not one, usually, for wearing sandals, I’m normally dying in a pair of converse or trainers, but I decided to buy myself a pair of Birkenstocks. So comfy these sandals, hugging…

New Guilty Pleasure: Riviera on Sky Atlantic

2017 seems to be the year of great TV. There’s a whole host of brilliant TV shows on at the moment and my planner is currently packed with TV shows, left right and centre as I dive into each one and feast my eyes on the latest show. I would say Sky Atlantic’s ‘Riviera’ is…

This heat won’t let me sleep 

Ever since Emily was born, sleeping changed for me. Instead of the usual get back into a sort of routine, like most, I’ve struggled to sleep a proper night through, mainly because I wake up roughly the same time every night, panicking that Emily isn’t breathing. Any mother knows that feeling. When it’s just silence…

My daughter does “talk” loudly, so what? 

  Emily talks. Ok, it’s not actual words, a lot of goo goo, ga ga, da da da and other random noises but she’s hellbent on letting everyone know that she’s here and you must take notice. I love that she has her own little language and she gets happy at the sound of her…

The dummy is back… 

After Emily’s refusal with her dummy at a few weeks old, Emily has had little interest in using one, so I either gave the new ones away or threw them out. That was until the teething started. No amount of Calpol, Nurofen, teetha granules, bug-a-loops, teething toys or whatnot worked until I tried the dummy…

Where does Emily get the energy from for her Jumperoo?! 

Emily loves her jumperoo. Constantly jumping , jumping, jump, jump, juuuuummmmmp, jumping, jumping in it. I honestly don’t know where she gets the energy from and I also can’t understand why she doesn’t drop off (sleep) to afterwards. She’s obsessed with it. But, unlike most other babies, if I leave her for too long jumping…

Best baby nappies according to mum’s

According to a survey of 2,000 women, consumer website Which.co.uk asked what are the nation’s top nappies. Having a baby isn’t cheap. You think you have it all covered and prepared for when you tick off your list just before your little one arrives but you never really have anything prepared once they do. Bringing…

Sharenting: when are parents taking it one step too far? 

Sharenting (or oversharenting) is a term used to describe the overuse of social media by parents to share content based on their children. It is related to the concept of “too much information”. I didn’t make that word up if you’re wondering. Sharenting is becoming more and more common in the world of social media….

The Ellington Park Fair 

A few weeks ago, I met up with friends and attended Ellington Park fair in Ramsgate. I love this park, it’s a lovely space and only a 10 minute walk from the harbour. It’s a great play area to let your children let off some steam, has a play area for smaller kids, lots of…

I use sun beds to help with my psoriasis and it helps 

Sun beds have always had a bad reputation stuck to them. Although popular for many years, as a cheap alternative for achieving a natural looking, deep golden tan, there are also risks. A sunbed is a mechanical tanning booth that emits ultraviolet (UV) rays to make the body tan. Some people use sunbeds every now…
