Before my baby was born, I tried to prepare myself by reading lots about BFing on the net, and Ieven bought problem solving books just in case, to prevent me from simply giving up when I came against challenges. But there are some things that non of this information ever... Continue reading

Yesterday couldn’t have been more perfect if we’d planned it, if you don’t count staying up till late getting house insurance quotes.

I'm currently sat at Taunton train station because the train manager threw me of the train (been here for an hour now)...I'm not a happy bunny.

So many people think that going down the washable nappy route takes loads of time, but honestly - it doesn't. "Wow you use washable nappies, well done you." I get comments like this all the time, but it really isn’t the time sink that you might perceive – you just... Continue reading

We lost another of DD's toothbrushes last week, I've lost count of how many tooth brushes I've bought for DD in the last couple of months. I'm not sure where she is putting them or what is eating them...or maybe they have just fallen victim to the ever hungry bin... Continue reading

Before I become a mother, I looked down on stay at home mums...and I gotta admit how wrong I was. I now have the up most of respect for stay at home mums, and while I'm often jealous of them being with their kids 24/7 I agree that they have... Continue reading

Yesterday was one of those long days in the office packed with presentations, my annual appraisal and a long commute… I was pleased with how it had all gone, despite feeling absolutely knackered. So picture this, I was sat kneeing by the side of the bath singing and laughing as... Continue reading

For many people the thought of camping with a baby is craziness. Many of my friends have questioned my sanity when I've told them I'm off for a week's camping. Having coped for a solid two weeks last September when my daughter was 10 months old I can confidently say... Continue reading

I don’t know about you, but I suffer from a constant guilty feeling of being torn between my work career and motherhood – trying to be the hands on mother that I want to be. I’m constantly reaching and trying to get the right balance, but momma’s arms were never... Continue reading
