I have SO many posts to publish, but I want them on the whole to be decent, fairly well proof read and make a little sense...! However, I have a (very nearly) Two Year Old and at the moment, I can barely take a shower. Like, the newborn stage was easier. My baby needs me … Continue reading Sometimes, you just need to take a shower.
We went on the most amazing holiday in Menorca (before Christmas!) and before raving on about the hotel, I thought I'd post something quick about how we booked it. I haven't been paid for either review (I'll always identify an affiliated post), just honestly loved this holiday and can't recommend the hotel or our travel … Continue reading Using an independent travel consultant to book our holiday- A review.
"Today I woke up and wanted to get dressed by myself but was told “No, we don’t have time, let me do it
It's been SO hot in England the last week- it's been beautiful, and sunny but oh-so-hot for Ava. We've embraced it by spending all of our days outside playing, paddling, crafting and gardening. The padding pool, ice lollies, the garden hose and a fan inside have been our saviour this week. Hope you're all well, … Continue reading Heatwave days
Hell, it’s probably only been the last few months that I have truly felt like the mother I thought I would be. And that we all do our best, and we are Amazing at what we do.

She has bright red cheeks, massive molar gum lumps, a horrible cough and a tired mummy and daddy. We have dosed up, cuddled, distracted, fresh-aired, bounced, cooled and bathed. Most … Continue reading The Little Things

We didn't think we would make it over this year, but with some late leave granted for … Continue reading Travelling with an infant- our trip to Barbados
I need my little baby to stop growing! Time is going WAY too fast, I'm desperately clinging on to the last few precious months of maternity leave and savouring each day with my precious baby. We have a crawling Ava, with (almost) FOUR teeth, and this month we have eaten lots of new foods, played, … Continue reading 8 months old.
Today I feel like I'm winning at life. Ava has eaten THREE times today. Ok, I'm not sure how much actually went into her mouth but she was quite happy to pick the food up and fling it around which is a vast improvement. I went to see the health visitor to get Ava weighed … Continue reading Winning at Weaning!
But it's not, is it? Because weaning (or lack of!) is hard work. And they say it should be fun and, by gosh, I'm trying to make it fun, but Ava has stopped eating. like, Stopped. She was sick, a few weeks ago. And by sick, I mean projectile vomiting. Something out of the exorcist. … Continue reading Food before one is just for fun
