After 8 years, we picked up right where we left off!

On Sunday I saw an old friend of mine. It had been 8 years since we last caught up. 8 years! And a lot has happened in that time. Currently living in Timor-Leste, Jen is living the high life with her boyfriend, 2 dogs and a great job. Jen was over for a work in…

It’s summer, don’t ever forget wet wipes!

I made the terrible mistake of forgetting wet wipes the other day and my god it was an afternoon of water pouring over the side of the pram and praying we were closer to home whilst Emily bathed in her stickiness, oblivious to my panic. Before I had Emily the need for wet wipes never…

A Chinese & Thai Foodie Fakeaway Eve with Friends

Who doesn’t like a takeaway? Chinese, Thai, Indian, curry, fish & chips, cheeky Nando’s, pizza, burgers, kebab – the options are endless. Us brits love them. You only have to sit and watch tv and notice the endless stream of adverts that can confirm this – JustEat, Deliveroo, Dominos. It’s easier to eat in, than…

Food best shared with family & friends

The weekend before last we had family and friends over for Sunday lunch. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve seen everyone. Christmas was a quiet affair, we barely saw anyone. I think only now I’m slowly catching up with everyone of my own friends, everyone is just so busy cracking on with the new…

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…

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 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…

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…

What I’ve learnt in the year since Emily was born

Since Emily was born so many things have happened. Amazing things, wonderful things, crazy things. It’s been a brilliant journey and we’re only 15 months in. The past 15 months has flown by at a ridiculous rate. How did we make it through this time without killing each other? But although there’s been moments, it’s…
