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! Before we were even parents we would often visit wildlife parks and zoo’s together, and Dex is animal mad so we plan to use the passes as often as possible. With the … Continue reading

A letter to my toddler

A letter to my toddler

Dearest Dexter, What an amazing year 2013 was for you. In just a year you’ve gone from a cruising baby to a confident toddler. We’ve watched you grow and learn and develop and become such an awesome little boy. You waited until we’d moved into our first family home in January before taking your first … Continue reading

Blink. Gone.

Blink. Gone.

It’s almost New Year and here I am already back in the office. Bugger. I blinked and Christmas was over. Months of build up and it’s finished already. *extremely sad face* We had a fantastic Christmas Day. We hosted for the first time in our own home and we invited everyone that had helped make … Continue reading

Scaredy Cat

This year is the first year we’re going trick or treating, and to ease Dexter (and the OH in) we’re only going to visit friends and family.

Now, now you dirty buggers……haul your mind out of the gutter and I shall explain…. 1. I got a new tattoo. Something … Continue reading

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

For Dexter’s 2nd birthday we decided to host a party at our home in our brand new sparkly garden. Dex is mad on animals so we thought an animal theme would be ideal, and I love dressing up so what better than for all the kids to come dressed as their favourite animal! I created … Continue reading

Guess Who’s 2?

Guess Who’s 2?

DKD is 2 years old! Blimey we have a 2 year old. An official toddler. A little man that runs around being all little manly. Our son, our world, our absolute everything, what did we spend our money on before you? He’s amazing (obviously biased). He’s like this mad, bubbly, nutty little dude that has … Continue reading

The K-D’s Visit Kos

Whilst most families are heading away on their summer holidays about now, the K-D’s are still reminiscing about theirs. We went to Kos at the beginning of July, just before the schools finished. And just before it got silly hot. Kos is familiar to both of us. The OH lived and worked there for a … Continue reading
