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.

On your marks, get set, BAKE! #2

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…

Confessions of a bad mommy!

Although it was never something I read about in Gina Ford*, parenting and guilt go hand in hand! Like two peas in a pod, you can’t have one without the other. I always feel as if I’m doing amazing at one thing, but then completely s**t at another!

TGIF

Well I made it! It only took one bottle of wine and a full lemon drizzle cake but I made it. Now I can bask in the glory of the bank holiday weekend! As a parent weekends don’t have the same meaning as they did in your pre baby years, especially bank holiday weekends…

On your marks, get set, BAKE!

It’s that time of year again when Britain gets the baking bug! It’s also the time of year when I try my best to recreate a show stopper, using my very limited and somewhat disappointing baking knowledge…

Weaning is hard!

  * The coffee is just for mummy Anyone who knows me, knows I am a lover of food. So the thought of introducing Rory to all the amazing tastes that the world has to offer, is something I have eagerly anticipated for a while. But I never expected it to be this hard! To begin…

The day we went to the indoor soft play…

Today Thursday (yes I am extremely behind on posts and promise to make more effort in future!) has confirmed something which I have suspected for a while, I’m not that fond of children. Obviously this does not apply to Rory, along with a few other very carefully selected children. One child who is exempt from my maternal disinterest is…

A very merry half birthday ?

Yesterday a certain little bean sprout turned six months old! Very cliche, but where has the time gone!!

The day we went off road…

On Monday we decided to take advantage of the sunshine and head out doors. We recently moved house (eventful with baby!) and as a result we’ve spent far too many sunny days covered in parcel tape whilst trying to catch up on laundry! Our destination, our local country park (Rother Valley Country Park). Over the…
