Abel turns 5!

Abel turns 5!

First of all how is Abel 5 already?! I started this blog when he wasn’t even 1! Time goes too fast.  I wanted to do a post on his birthday celebrations this year (well last year now…) as it is the first year we have […]

swimming lessons with Water Babies #collab

So this probably isn’t the first thing you expect to read on a review of swimming lessons but… I hate swimming. When I was little I loved it but over time I just gradually lost any enjoyment from it and in recent years have barely went […]

Sharing a room – 4 & 1 years

Sharing a room – 4 & 1 years

I’ve been meaning to do a post on the kids room for soooo long but as always I have taken forever to get round to it (mostly because it’s never this tidy for decent pictures!). I get asked a lot how it is space wise, […]

How was this a week ago already?! We were lucky enough to be invited along to Electric Fields Festival again this year which I was over the moon about as we had a great time last year (see that post here). We could only manage […]

It feels like forever since I posted a review on here, I don’t tend to do them that often but this is for one of my favourite brands so I have been excited to post it. We have been using Gro products since Abel was […]

Loo Loo Mummy to the rescue [guest post]

Babies have been born since the dawn of time, yet we still seem unable to facilitate clean, accessible baby change facilities for both mums, dads and carers. How is this even possible when we are in the 21st century? It’s crazy to think scientists are […]

A week without WiFi: 5 things I learnt

It doesn’t seem so long ago that if you asked someone for their WiFi password they would have looked at you as if you had two heads but now, now it’s almost up there with the air we breathe. This past week I have had […]

How do we raise them to be healthy strong independent individuals confident in their own skin?

Inspired by international women day and the fact that I am raising two girls aged 6 and nearly 10. My youngest recently told me watch the Little Mix music video for Black Magic. I actually couldn’t believe what I was watching!! Now maybe I am […]

A Who’la?!

A Who’la?!

The doula, one of the many enigmas of birth. Who is she? What does she do? Why should I consider one? The idea of a doula can initially pose more questions than answers but once you’ve broken through the unknown aspects the role begins to […]

Combination feeding: The best of both worlds?

Combination feeding: The best of both worlds?

Thinking back to when I first became a mum one of the biggest things I remember is feeding for hours on end which is understandable considering that takes up what feels like 90% of your time with a newborn. I remember being asked “breast or […]

Feeding the family: Getting the balance right

Feeding the family: Getting the balance right

Getting the balance right when working, juggling looking after children and trying to get that home cooked meal on the table for everyone can sometimes feel impossible. My girls are ages 6 and 9 1/2 (that 1/2 is VERY important!!) since their arrival in our […]
