A good walk for little legs

A few days ago after a morning meeting, Emily and I met Clare and Scarlet for a few hours. We had decided the day before that we’d walk along Government Acre, letting our little ones run free, then pop by the boating pool for a cuppa, hoping that the long walk would have an affect,…

I meal plan a week in advance, here’s why you should do it too

Keeping on track of what I need to cook for my family isn’t always the easiest task in the world. Most meals I cook for Sam and Emily, doesn’t always interest Emily. She’s good with her food but she’s a little-food-but-often kind of child, so a sit down meal in the evening before us adults…

Add meaning to your menu 

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been writing a side blog to this which you may have noticed pop up on the Facebook page and on my twitter feed. I’ve been writing a food blog, sharing with my followers and friends my love and passion for cooking. I have a mix of amazing recipes…

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…

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…

Dribble Fever Has Arrived

As if having a fever for 24 hours wasn’t enough earlier this week, Emily’s teeth have decided to drop in for a bit of a party too. Now, thanks to the various few teeth trying to claw their way in, another level of dribbling has entered the building too. And I mean a lot. Dribbling…

I love my veg box from Nethergong Nurseries

Thanks to a recommendation from Clare and not being overly impressed with the vegetable produce from the supermarket of late, I decided to sign up as a new customer to Nethergong Nurseries, a company in Canterbury that lets their customers access the freshest vegetables, all grown within 10 miles of their nursery. They deliver every…

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…

Jar, pouch or DIY

Now that the teething is over, and The two bottom front teeth have popped through, we’re back to weaning again. It was a difficult few weeks, apart from a bit of porridge in the morning, Emily wouldn’t have anything else apart from formula. Now that we’re back to weaning, I’m trying everything to get Emily…
