Morning It’s officially Autumn 2018. I can remember writing my Happy New Year post. Time really does go faster when you’re older(er) doesn’t it? We kicked off our 9th month of the year with a date day out and trip to London, sans kidlets (freedom!) to see Kevin Hart’s Irresponsible Tour at the O2. Braving … Continue reading Irresponsible Date – Kevin Hart at the O2
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
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!
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!
Before I had my little dumpling, I swore blind I'd never be that mum watching In The Night Garden with my kidlet. I just thought it was a complete and utter nonsense. There was nothing about a Flying blimp called a Pinky Ponk or a blue sailor called Iggle Piggle that appealed to me. Even … Continue reading Dumpling In The Night Garden, Live!
So dumpling turned 10 months on Monday (24th) and has decided that he will mark this occasion by standing up by himself and trying to walk! I thought babies didn't walk until they were at least a year? I probably won't need to workout anymore as I'll stay fit running after him once he really … Continue reading Don’t You Step On My Moccasin Shoes!
Having grown up in Suffolk, my sister and I were lucky enough to have had a fantastic outdoorsy childhood. From visiting Eastern Farmpark, to Stickleback fishing down the Broads and walks around the Nacton Lairs...our mum took us everywhere along with our next door neighbour and her two boys. I always said that if I … Continue reading Old McJimmy Had a Farm
If you live in the UK, then you (better) know that it is Mother's Day this Sunday. Since my sister and I aren't going to be able to spend Mother's Day with our mum this year, we decided to take her out to Lunch on Monday as an early Mother's Day treat. My lil dumpling … Continue reading Baby That Lunches
So today, my sister and I decided we wanted some serious brunch, since we haven't had a meal out together for months. I suggested The Breakfast Club Canary Wharf as I hadn't been there since I was 9 months pregnant with my little dumpling last June. If you don't know Canary Wharf very well, it may … Continue reading A baby who Brunches
