Baby Blake is 1!

52 weeks ago you came into our lives, very quickly and a bit earlier than we were prepared for, but in the most magical way.

5 Time Saving Tips for a New Mum

Babies swallow up time faster than you can say “bugger it’s 3pm”. They are the best waste of time, plus the really good ones stop you from doing any household chores. So here are my tips on how to save a bit of time when the baby is taking it all. 1. Getting dressed. Get … Continue reading

Whilst You’re Here

We’re a busy, noisy household. 2 adults, 2 children, 1 cat and who knows how many fish.

20 Questions

At the start of 2014 I promised myself I would blog more, but I often struggle to feel inspired. Today, for example, I worked from home and wallowed in self-pity after having a wisdom tooth removed. Not very inspiring. So today’s blog post has been inspired by casual internet browsing.

Happy Zoo Year

Happy Zoo Year

The very lovely OH surprised Dexter and I on Boxing Day with some annual passes to Whipsnade Zoo.  What a love he is!
