Guest Post – The Pregnancy Diaries #week15

Week 15. Baby is a pear ? This week I have been discovering how I am now unable to squeeze myself into/through/past things. Although I can’t seem to remember this  phase from the first time! I have found myself in several situations where I have needed to get from A to B, but my route…

Our weekend in pictures…

Well this weekend has been filled with sleepless nights and visits to the walk in centre! Rory is currently suffering from an angry strain of man flu and we’ve all been made to feel his pain!

Guest Post- The Pregnancy Diaries #week14

Meet Kerrie – My new guest blogger… Although this is not my first pregnancy, it has been 10 years, so it pretty much feels like I’m starting all over again. Difference is, a decade has passed meaning this time I am almost classed as an ‘older mum’ and I feel it! I don’t have half…

Ten things all new parents need…

One advantage of bringing up children in the modern world is the extensive array of gadgets, designed to make your complicated life that little bit easier! But are these baby must haves actually making our lives any better, or are manufacturers just lining their pockets with the money of vulnerable new parents?

On your marks, get set, BAKE! #5

Another week, another bake! This week saw the contestants do battle over pastry. It was also the week which, according to the sun, left viewers baffled. Apparently Mary Berry’s recipe for a Bakewell tart started a debate on twitter as to whether the Derbyshire treat should be topped with icing or almonds. I’m lead to believe, again…

Most common arguments amongst new(ish) parents…

Becoming parents is a wonderful but testing time. Know matter how prepared you think you are, when that buddle of joy enters the world their sure to turn it upside down! As Rory hurtles towards his first birthday, I find myself in envy of new parents. Now don’t go thinking I’m some crazy baby lady…

Batter week! It may have been a first in the bake off tent but in our house its a weekly staple. If your from Yorkshire, the classic beef accompaniment ( Yorkshire pudding) isn’t reserved just for Sundays. In fact there isn’t much us Yorkshire folk wouldn’t serve in a Yorkshire Pud. From stews and casseroles to things a little sweeter like Jam…

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM

So yesterday was just too hot! Ryan is adamant that he predicted (several times) the September heat wave back at the beginning of summer, personally I think he heard it on the radio and pointed it out to me once in passing. When the weather is this hot it calls for one thing and one thing only…ICE…

Saturday night dinner…

Its Saturday night (or at least it was when I started this post), Ryan is out with the boys and Rory is tucked up in bed. My initial plan was to order Chinese food and snuggle up in front of the TV with a large (Ok an extra large) glass of wine. However we haven’t…

Baby Gap bargain hunting!

  I LOVE to see a baby in a romper! A practical outfit, versatile enough to suit both summer and winter. It provides the necessary amount of cute without sacrificing on comfort.  Yet I  struggle to find enough affordable designs to feed my never ending romper addiction.

Its biscuit week…well it was on Wednesday but as usual I’m late to the party! If I had to choose one biscuit to eat for the rest of my life it would be a very close call between a custard cream and a good old fashioned chocolate digestive! I like a strong biscuit which can…

The day we went to the wildlife park…

We are fortunate enough to live in an area of the UK, which Twilight fans would compare to the town of Forks. In other words its pretty grey, rains a lot and would be the ideal home for Edward Cullen’s British cousin…
