So we made it to Barbados on Tuesday after an 8h30m flight. I’m glad and pleasantly surprised to report that our lil Dumpling handled his first flight very, very well! Our flight was at 11:25am so we had to wake him up at 6am to get ready to leave for the airport - that … Continue reading Dumpling’s First Flight – Pt.2
As you’re reading this, we’re at Gatwick Airport, embarking on our first ever Holiday as a family, with Dumpling! (Unless you count the time he came with us to Prague last year in my belly, but don’t think that counts to be honest!) Both hubs and I are both nervous about how Dumpling is going … Continue reading Dumpling’s First Flight – Pt.1
Evening all! What a glorious day we've had in London today. Sunshine, heat...managed to get three loads of washing done, dried and folded. Also managed to enjoy the garden for what may be the last time this year - win! To add to the day's loveliness, our little Dumpling turned 15 months today. He's a … Continue reading Popeye Catherine Wheels

We … Continue reading Fit Mum Life – The Crazy House Podcast
Afternoon! Usually I reserve diving head first into a plate of pancakes for Sunday mornings. But, this morning (Wednesday) I was proper fancying some, but couldn't be arsed with measuring cups or scales. I also didn't want to feel stodgy as I take Dumpling for his swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings. 15 minutes later I … Continue reading When The Banana Met The Eggs
Morning all! Lately, I've noticed that I've been consuming waaaaay too much sugar in my diet. From the odd visit to Aunty Anne's which was becoming a weekly habit to constantly adding Stevia to my morning brew, I noticed a change in both my body and the way I feel - weight gain, less energy … Continue reading Sugar Free – 7 Day Challenge
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!
