Night terrors are relentless lately

Last night Emily had a night terror and dear god it was like summoning something from the exorcist. At first, not knowing what it was, I picked her up and Sam said put her in bed with us, which of course woke up some mini-demon and a full-blown temper tantrum followed, lasting 10 mins downstairs…

Why is everyone hating on Wetherspoons in Ramsgate?

Since Wetherspoons announced they were coming to Ramsgate there has been plenty of views whether this is good or bad. Wetherspoons Ramsgate, you can’t fault it, it really does have something for everyone. Most of the groups on Facebook have someone at least once or twice a day complaining about Wetherspoons in Ramsgate. If it’s…

Muscle Food Review

If you buy the groceries in your house, you’ll know that buying any type of meat is normally quite expensive. It doesn’t matter where you shop, if you have a growing family, buying weekly shopping is expensive. I buy the food in this house and cook too. As you can tell from this blog I’m…

Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…

Why it’s important to have a smear test

If you’re a woman over the age of 25, you will most likely have been invited to take a cervical screening test, otherwise known as a smear test. I had my first smear test when I was 24, I was using the coil as one of my methods of contraception and I often found I…

We went to Giovanni Fletcher’s book signing in Canterbury

If you don’t know much about Giovanna, she grew up in Essex with her Italian dad Mario, mum Kim, big sister Giorgina and little brother Mario (he was on TOWIE), and with family playing such a big part of her life it was only natural that she had always dreamed of having children of her…

Emily had her first haircut and boy was it hard work!

Emily and I went up to visit my family the other weekend and whilst we were up there, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get Emily’s hair trimmed. As my mum is a hairdresser, I wouldn’t have anyone else cutting her hair, but because it was the all-important first hair cut, I’d…

Monday’s trip home was a nightmare in London

Monday we came home from spending a weekend with family and friends in Isleworth, my hometown. The weekend was lovely, but it went by so quickly. Time just flew, by it was great to see everyone, including my niece who we picked up from school on the Friday, gave her her birthday presents early and…

Santa at The Treaty Centre, Hounslow, SW London

On Saturday whilst visiting family, we thought it would be nice to visit Father Christmas with Emily’s cousin Mya, hopefully making the overall experience of the first visit, a little less scary. We decided on visiting Santa Claus at the Treaty Centre in Hounslow, South West London. The last time I visited Santa here with…

We’re going to Isleworth on Friday

We are going to Isleworth this weekend and I really can’t wait. Although I saw my mum a few weeks ago for Emily’s first birthday in London for lunch, it was only brief for a few hours and not long enough. It was be great to catch up with my niece, sister, grandparents, mum and…

London’s Public transport with a baby

Public transport in London is very different to down here in Ramsgate. It’s busy, hectic, a mad rush, busy, constantly busy and if you’re not moving quickly, Londoners tend to let you know about it. Before I moved to Ramsgate, I lived in South West London for most of my life’s whole 26 years. And…
