Afternoon! Hubs and Lil Dumpling are busy winning themselves and spending time with his family in Ghana for the next two weeks, so it’s just us girls (myself and Lil Pudding) left here to ‘enjoy’ the British weather. The past 6 weeks have flown by in a newborn/Toddler phase. In amongst the madness, I’ve been … Continue reading All Out of F**ks
Afternoon! First, let me start by telling you how chuffed I am right now and why! The Health Visitor popped by this afternoon to check up on Lil Pudding, who is now 3.5 weeks old and also to check up on me, which I was surprised at as the HV’s in London forgot all about … Continue reading Brownies for Breakfast?
Afternoon! Lil Pudding is 10 days old and we’ve been busy parenting hard during that time. Night feeds, nappy changes, and fumbling with those annoying snaps on babygrows in the dark, and of course, establishing breastfeeding. DISCLAIMER: Before I go any further, let me just preface this post by saying that I truly believe that … Continue reading Got Milk? – Our Breastfeeding Journey
Afternoon, We've bee a little busy this week! Our Lil Pudding decided to arrive in the early hours of Sunday morning, bang on her Due Date! I barely had time to take a '40 week' Bumpie when my contractions started. By the time I reached the hospital, after only 5 hours of active labour, we … Continue reading Long Live the NHS!
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!
Evening! So whilst we were busy packing up our house in South London ready for our move this week, the Lil Dumpling was staying with his grandparents in Suffolk. Never ones to miss an opportunity to eat food uninterrupted and child-free, hubs took me out for a Date Night at the Michelin Starred Amaya in … Continue reading Cheeky Midweek Date Night – Amaya Knightsbridge
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!
What a year it has been! I posted my first ever blog a year ago today, almost exactly to the same hour. Who starts a blog on 30th December, you ask? Me...someone who doesn't believe in New Years Resolutions (as I explained last year) but would rather take a time-out at the end of each … Continue reading 1st Blogaversary! A Year in Review
Merry Christmas! Whilst most kids loved to see presents under the tree at Christmas, I always remember my favourite part of this time of year was all the food! We were very lucky to have a mum who made everything from scratch - sausage rolls, stuffing, bread sauce, yellow cake, coconut bread (Bajan households know!)...everything … Continue reading ‘Tis The Season…Homemade Brandy Mincemeat
