Rakuten’s Play.Com Giveaway

One of my favourite shops to buy from is Boots.  Good old faithful Boots.  The reason being that I like how their advantage card works.  It’s simple and easy and even though I have loads of store cards for other shops I don’t quite understand how they work, and they just don’t get used.  Whereas…

Gaggle of Hen’s in Bath

I’m going to sound like a terrible Mother (I’m used to it now so I’m not overly concerned anymore), especially considering my last post.  But actually in the end I didn’t find it all that difficult leaving Baby London behind for my first weekend away. Don’t get me wrong I text home regularly every morning…

Mother V’s Father Debate

Today Baby London is 4 months and 3 days old.  And today will be the first time I’ll be leaving him.  *Cue little violins playing* This weekend I’m off on a hen do and even though I’m excited (nights out, spa days, butler in the buff.. oh this Mama is ready!) I’m really apprehensive as…

4 Month Post Pregnancy Body Update

It’s been 4 months since my belly has been used as a home for Baby London and being a hefty 8lbs 14oz he certainly pushed it to its full capacity. (I still had another 2/3 weeks on top of this bump to go!) In clothing I feel like the old me again which is great.…

Baby London is 4 Months Old

Baby London is 4 months old today and as every month passes I find that being a Mother just becomes more fun and rewarding.  It’s still hard in the sense that this little being relies solely on me, but at this age Baby London is giving back loads and he provides hours of entertainment for…

The Land of the Fairies

There’s nothing prettier than a sea of Bluebells, so when the timing is right it’s a must to seek them out in ancient woodlands. So this weekend we thought we’d take a little family trip to see if we could find the home of the fairies… I think we can safely tick ‘finding bluebells’ off…

Cooking Pasta like an Italian

I’m no chef.  In fact I can categorically say I’m awful in the kitchen. I don’t mind eating my own creations (toast and brown sauce at university) but I really don’t like inflicting my food on other people. When it comes to cooking in our household I’d say about 80% of it is done by…

Interactive Theatre for the Kids

After having a baby it can be so hard to find time to catch up with friends.  Work gets in the way and family life gets in the way.  Texting each other and the odd phone call just isn’t the same as a proper good old tête-à-tête. But last Friday was the prime opportunity for me…

Why should I apologise for my Baby?

The other day one of my lovely readers left me a comment asking me to write more posts about life with Baby London.  She’s been following me since before his birth and wanted to know more about life on the other side.  She loved the honesty from my 6 week update posts, particularly the one…
