It's a well known fact that I'm an Instagram addict. But, I don't just scroll aimlessly, looking at dog photos or cat memes. My main vices are fitness and food. More recently, I've been stumbling across baby boutiques. My current fave is a boutique called 'Lil' Cubs' which is run by a mother of two. Their … Continue reading Stylin’ my ‘Lil’ Cub’
Evening all! Last Thursday, the hubs treated me to a lovely meal at Hutong in The Shard. We've always wanted to go to one of the restaurants there and so the opportunity arose whilst Dumpling was staying in Suffolk with Nanny & Grandad. Gotta make the most of child- free nights!! Our table was booked … Continue reading Dinner On The 33rd Floor
Morning all! What a miserable rainy cold day in London today! Luckily, once the oven is on, the house warms up very nicely. That gave me an excuse to get cosy in the kitchen and bake some treats for my Lil Dumpling😆 I had two sad ripe Bananas in the fruit bowl and some blueberries … Continue reading It’s Raining So We Baking!
Afternoon! I had two sad and lonely overrripe Bananas sitting in my fruitbowl this weekend. You know when they get so upset that when you pick them up, the stall falls off and their ends are then exposed? I'm talking REALLY depressed Bananas. Not one to throw food away too often, I decided I'd put … Continue reading Everyone Loves Flaps!
Evening all! So I started back at work on 3rd July and so far, it's been ok! I thought it would take me ages to adjust, but as dumpling is staying with his Grandma (my MIL) during the day, that's probably helped me adjust a lot. Anywho, my new hours are 9.15-3.15 with Wednesday … Continue reading Pie & Mash Please!
You Evening all! Anyone who knows me, also knows that I am a HUGE fan of tennis. I will literally watch tennis all day, non-stop. I first fell in love with this exquisite, skilful and competitive sport when my mum was watching the US Open one summer and decided I'd sit with her and watch … Continue reading New Balls Please! – My Maiden Wimbledon!
Evening all! So, after 13 months of Maternity Leave and living in a baby bubble with our lil Dumpling, I went back to work work work work work work today. The hardest part about today was, funnily enough, nothing to do with leaving dumpling (he will now be busy terrorising Grandma for 4 days … Continue reading Have You Seen The Banana Oat Muffin Man?
Evening all! First off, what happened to our summer? This time last week I was putting ice cubes in tuppaware and leaving it underneath my Dumpling's cot to cool him down. Today, I'm layering him up in a sleepsuit and vest with a quilt! Typical British weather! Well, whilst we all ponder why all of … Continue reading N(ice) Cream for Nice Weather
When people told me that once you have children, time passes far too quickly, they were not joking at all. One year ago, on this day, at 9.21am, Alexander Jadon, our Lil Dumpling arrived in the World and our lives became so much brighter. So, rather than the usual smash cake pics or a cute photo collage … Continue reading Happy 1st Birthday, Dumpling! (Birth Story)
I was/am blessed with a father who went without, just so that his family could have. He dedicated his life to working hard for us. He made it possible for me to go to Law School without having to leave with a massive mountain of debt. I will forever be grateful that I was chosen … Continue reading The Real Super Heroes
