Planning for Labour (the second time around)

I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with my second (and most probably my last) baby. My first baby girl came into this world in a pretty stressful way. I was induced on my due date with Maddison as I started to get early signs of pre eclampsia. I won’t go into all of the details... Continue Reading →

Baby Breakfast Bites

We are constantly on the look out for breakfast ideas as M gets bored with toast or crumpets and won't let me spoon-feed her any type of cereal or porridge at the moment.

Everything is new

One of my favourite things about being a mum is getting to experience the world through her eyes. Everything is new.  I find myself saying to my husband a lot, this is the first time she's been to the beach, this is the first time she's tried a pickle, this is the first time she's...

Returning to work

This is my very first blog post, prompted by the end of my maternity leave. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a wife and a stay at home mum.  Don't get me wrong I actually quite like my job, however I feel that where I am needed the most... Continue Reading →
