I’m having a bit of a clear out before Christmas

How crazy to think that in a few short weeks it will officially be December and then the countdown to Christmas begins. Seriously, where has this year gone? It’s flown by! It’s mad to think that in a few weeks Emily will turn 2 too. As Christmas approaches, to get ready for the first Christmas…

The NHS Hero Awards should be watched by all.

The other day I watched The NHS Hero Awards, and yes I did cry, it most definitely wasn’t allergies. If you didn’t watch it, try and catch it on the ITV hub, as it should be seen. It’s an awards show honouring the NHS staff and dozens of volunteers who work tirelessly at the heart…

Nappy wars 

When you become a parent, you expect certain brands to be better than others. The more expensive something is, the better, right? So when I first put Pampers on Emily, I will admit I was disappointed. I think Pampers is very overpriced for what it is. But this is what I think, everyone has their own…

Why I’m disappointed with the revival of Will and Grace

Back in the day, American sitcom Will and Grace, was groundbreaking- it was witty, cheeky, silly and dived in places that most were to scared to go to. The hit TV series, constantly nominated but never winning awards, took the world by storm, but it didn’t matter, they had their millions of followers, from afar,…

Since when have children’s toys become so ridiculously expensive?

I was having a discussion with a friend of mine who has 3 kids older than Emily. The subject started off with my super organisation skills when it came to buying presents, something that came into place when I was pregnant and sort of stuck. There’s so many people in Sam’s and my family, that…

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…

TV in 2017 has been great… so far. 

We had a lot of great TV last year, which helped mitigate what sometimes felt like a world gone mad (and about to burn). This year feels about the same, but luckily we still have great TV to watch (while it lasts anyway). It’s already November and with only just over 2 months to go…

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…

I’m all about that bake, ’bout that cake, no pastry

  I love baking, I mean it should go naturally with the fact that I love to cook too but my love of baking doesn’t stretch as far as some and although I may have some “skills,” I’m nowhere near the ‘Bake Off’ type baker that some people are. Unfortunately, under pressure would mean a…
