Afternoon! It’s still January! This has got to be the longest month of the year...except this year, it feels like January has flown by. Probably because I’ve been busy packing up our home of 6+ years, moving from London to Suffolk, starting Maternity Leave (again!) trying not to have our Lil Pudding early whilst in the … Continue reading Dumpling’s Day at the Zoo
Morning! We’ve reached 37 Weeks today! By ‘we’ I mean myself and our Lil Pudding, who has reached full term. Although, we are not quite due yet! Having reached this milestone in my second pregnancy, I’m now turning my attention to packing my hospital bag. Just some of the things I’ve got to fit in … Continue reading 37 Weeks Today – Time To Pack THE Bag!
Happy New Year! I still remember when it was 31st December 1999, around 11:30pm and everyone was listening to Prince’s (RIP) 1999 waiting for the Millennium to ring in. I don’t feel as though 18 years have passed since then! They do say time waits for no man and since having our Lil Dumpling in … Continue reading 2018…The Year of Change Pt.1 – Maternity Leave!
Evening all! So I’m 26 Weeks +4 days into my second pregnancy and up until now, I had prided myself on having never been ill during my first...I guess I jinxed it!

Afternoon! By the time you read this, we’ll be back in cold arse England after two weeks of sun, sea, sand and flying fish in Barbados! I’m writing this post whilst we still have one day left here because we’ve pretty much done everything we wanted to and are now using these last few days … Continue reading Gem Of De Caribbean Sea – First Family Holiday!
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

Morning all! What a miserable rainy cold day in London today! Luckily, once the oven is on, the house warms up very nicely.
