Nutmeg A/W14 and Christmas Jumpers!

With the chill starting to creep in, particularly at nights, there is no denying that the crisp weather is literally around the corner and just waiting to pounce. To be honest I’m quite excited, I’m looking forward to the Autumn nights curled up with a glass of red wine and Downton Abbey on the TV,…

What Would I Say to My Younger Self?

Dear Donna, Well I’m not sure what to say to you to be honest.  Who am I?  Well I’m you but a hell of a lot bigger and a tad bit wiser with a couple of grey hairs! I wanted to write you a letter because I know that right now you don’t know what’s expected…

Lest We Forget

“If I should die, think only this of me, that there’s some corner of a foreign field that’s forever England…” this extract from a poem always makes me feel patriotic.  Whatever your thoughts on war there’s no denying that the world wars took their toll massively and the men that served for this country certainly…

Allergy Friendly Baby Food

So far *touch wood* Baby London doesn’t appear to have any allergies to any particular food groups.  But I know this isn’t the case for many babies.  I know of Mother’s that have breastfed and have had to alter diets because their child is allergic to dairy for example.  The same issues arise a lot…

We’re Going to the Zoo, Zoo Zoo…

It was on my mid year resolution list and on Monday I managed to tick off ‘taking Baby London to the zoo.’  Even the horrific traffic (non moving for about an hour until I did the terrible thing of undercutting everyone queuing- Baby London wasn’t going to stay silent forever!) due to an accident on…

The Best Bubble Tea in London

*Stands up* I, Donna am a bubble tea addict. There I’ve said it.  I totally blame Rosie my high school friend for my addiction.  During my late teens I lived in Singapore, at the time bubble tea was hitting the high street big time (as in pretty much every other shop was a bubble tea…

First Time on a Swing #MinuteMonday

This week’s #MintueMonday is really just a little video of a new experience.  As a Mum all the silly non significant things suddenly become significant, so the first time Baby London went on a swing I had to make sure I captured it.  He was teetering on the edge of his nap time, so his…

1950’s Fashion #FashionFriday

I had quite a lot of emails from people asking me where my outfit for Secret Cinema came from, so I thought I’d make this #FashionFriday all about what I wore. I love dressing up, and sourcing the clothes is just as much part of the fun as the event itself.  One thing that is…

8 Month Old Baby Routine

I’m away this weekend and I’ll be leaving Baby London with his Dad all by himself *que scared Mummy.* Living apart while we’re waiting for this damn place to go through is hard enough (if we’d known it was gonna take this long we’d have just rented somewhere), and MrLondonMum has missed out on so…
