Thanks to Chlobo for this amazing cake!

A few days ago, it was my mums birthday. But not just any birthday, it was the big 6-0! Like any big milestone birthday, trying to decide what to get for the special person, alongside how to celebrate their special day can prove difficult. And with mum, it’s a nightmare trying to decide what to…

Apologies for the radio silence

Apologies for the radio silence on this blog. I’ve been a little chilled out since my last post went out. Did everyone have a Merry Christmas? Christmas was a bit of a mixed bag here. Last Sunday we went out for lunch with Sam’s brother and family, for a lovely Christmas lunch at Brewers Fayre…

Weird habits I’ve gained since having Emily

There’s certainly some weird habits us women pick up when we’re pregnant but they get weirder once your child is born, something even 20 months on, I still do. I wake in the middle of the night to double check she’s still breathing It’s a habit I’ve had since we brought her home. I can’t…

What are you doing this summer with your kids?

With the recent temperatures heating up the country making a plan for the summer holidays with Emily has been difficult. Ok so technically it’s not summer holidays for us as I work from home but it’s still the summer. What have we got in store for Emily? Well we’re going to Bristol to visit family,…

We visited Jungle Jim’s again and this time had mixed feelings

Emily and I have only been to Jungle Jim’s on two occasions including our last visit. The last time was last year with Clare and her daughter Scarlet where we visited the inside soft play area for children. Although the soft play area was ok, it wasn’t great for them, as they were restricted to…

Only a few days to go before Emily’s Christening

Emily’s Christening is in less than a few days and this week has been crazy with work, keeping Emily active and busy as well as doing a million other things that I didn’t really need to add to my week but had to do anyway. On top of that, obviously I decided to do the…

I can’t believe how quick the last few weeks have gone…

Where has the time gone? No, seriously, where has it gone? It’s already been a fortnight since Jane’s funeral, which time has just flown by since, and now in less than 2 weeks it will be Emily’s christening. The event I’ve been planning since January, yes I’m a little bit of an organised freak, and…

Advice for new mums…

Honestly, I’m probably not the best person to give advice on having a baby and what happens next as I’ve only had one baby, a baby, my baby, little Emily who isn’t so little anymore, but in the eyes of just about most, is very little, but I do think there should be some kind…

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 has a great group of friends 

Emily has a small but great group of friends. All of her friends are similar in ages and mean the world to her. It’s so lovely to see that she has a good little group of friends that she can laugh, play and learn with. Emily is incredibly lucky with the little group that she…
