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…

Anyone else’s child obsessed with The Boss Baby?

I bought the Baby Boss dvd last month after my sister said we had to watch it. And what to do you know, Emily loved it. Like a lot. She’s totally obsessed and it seems she’s not the only child who is. Ok. So we don’t access to the mini series on our TV with…

My Daughter Isn’t In Dresses, So What?

Emily looks gorgeous in dresses, but no she doesn’t wear them all the time. This seems to be a problem for some people, not naming names, that I don’t dress her in dresses because I want her to just have fun. So I felt the need to write something, it shouldn’t bother me, but it…

Come slim with me 

I have tried various diets since Emily arrived and failed on just as many losing the weight. I’ve tried Slimming World, a milkshake or two, restricting calories, different diets, following a dvd and plan and still I’m not where I want to be with my weight and it’s all down to bloody motivation. Oh and…

Parents who fail at parenting

Parenting isn’t easy. Emily is 15m and walking everywhere and as amazing as it is that she is taking those big old steps and she’s exploring the world, you need eyes everywhere- at the back of your head just doesn’t cut it anymore. Tiny humans are crazy. In a world where everything is shared constantly…

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,…

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…

We’re seeing Santa this weekend!

Emily may be too young for Santa Claus just yet, but I’ve decided to take Emily to see him with my sister and her daughter, Mya on Saturday whilst we’re up in Isleworth. Although Emily is small, most of the options for Santa are probably a little too mature for her, so we’ve decided this…

Emily has upped her eating game 

After a successful few months weaning her from 4 months old, Emily took little interest in food when her first teeth started coming through about 6 months. Don’t get me wrong she showed interest in some things, liked others, enjoyed her yoghurts, fruit purees and snacks but beyond that, she wasn’t interested. Whilst her friends…

Review: Sunday Lunch at The Wheatsheaf, St. Lawrence, Ramsgates

It’s that time of year, when a warm fire and a big bowl of comfort food is hearty, rich and comforting. And when it comes to Sunday lunch, us Brit’s don’t like to muck around. If it’s Sunday lunch, there really is little excuse on a Sunday for anything else but a Sunday Roast. We…

There’s something exciting happening soon … 

Only a few people know but something really exciting is coming soon. Close friends and family know my little secret, Emily probably the longest but seeing as she can’t speak, you’ll have to wait for some time before she could tell you. Something exciting is coming soon, so keep your ears open and eyes peeled….

Feeling very spoilt 

So it was my birthday last Wednesday, I’m a grand old age of 32. Ok, not old, not even in the slightest, but I’m feeling good as Nina Simone once suggested in her hit song. Why you ask? Well, apart from the lovely well wishers from friends, family, old colleagues and connections as far as…
