Skincare Routine #1

I’ve always looked after my skin, from quite a young age actually.  My Mum has always been stringent on proper skin care and using the best products possible, and her skin is the type of skin to be envious of.  But growing up, I didn’t always fully understand my skin and what my skin type…

‘Kids Don’t Come With A Manual’ Competition

My toaster came with a manual.  My blender came with a manual.  My phone came with a manual.  My moisturiser comes with a manual!  Everything seems to come with a manual these days, even the obvious items we all know how to use.  Do you know what doesn’t come with a manual? A child. The…

When’s the Right Time for a Second Baby?

After a woman has popped out one child, her body suddenly becomes an empty vessel that evidently needs filling up again.  Weeks after popping out Little London I was often asked when I was thinking of conceiving his sibling.  I could feel my poor womb shudder and my caesarean wound tighten at the thought. While…

Caesarean Awareness Month: A Rant

So April is apparently Caesarean Awareness Month.  I thought I’d check it out to see what it was all about considering that my birth experience resulted in a caesarean section.

Baby to Toddler

For a while now I’ve been referring to my Son as Little London.  He was previously known as Baby London, but as soon as he hit one, the nickname I use for the purpose of this blog just didn’t seem right.  In fact calling him a baby didn’t seem right.  It was almost like over…

The Obligatory Terrible Haircut

It’s a right of passage isn’t it? The obligatory terrible haircut.  At some point in a child’s life it happens.  Christ, I think my whole childhood was spent with the obligatory terrible haircut, so it’s only fair my child gets to experience the joys of looking like a twit.  Actually ‘The Twits’ isn’t a bad…

Bluestone, Pembrokeshire: The Blog

As the sun set on our very first night, I knew we’d made the right decision.  We’d waited so long to go on our first family holiday, and it seemed like everything aligned itself perfectly to give us the best experience we could have possibly dreamed of. There was no stress of flights, no problem of…

March Round Up

I love writing these little round ups because it reminds me what I’ve enjoyed over the previous month.  It also encourages me monthly to take some time out, and make sure Little London has everything he requires for the age he’s at. In terms of TV this month we’ve obviously got a bit of a…

Bluestone, Pembrokeshire: The 5 Minute Video

We were kindly given the opportunity to stay at Bluestone in Pembrokeshire. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect first family holiday. Little London was in his element with the range of toddler activities they had for him to join in on, plus he thoroughly enjoyed his morning in the well equipped creche while…
