Lea and her husband Chris have two beautiful daughters, Mathilda (2) and Nellie (12 weeks).

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. We’ve kinda celebrated Halloween in the past by just being at home and answering the door to kids in bin bags. This year will be the first that … Continue reading

Smartie Pants

How did my kid get to be so smart? Over the past few months his brain has become completely sponge-like and he’s picking up everything. The words coming from his mouth are amazing and his confidence levels have shot through the roof. I know I’m completely biased but in my opinion the kid is an … Continue reading

The L’s say “I do”

The K-D’s are off on a mini adventure this weekend (I hope Pilchard the Cat doesn’t read this and throws a wild party.) We’re lucky enough to be attending the wedding of Laura Rook and Lee Lewis (not forgetting its really Lexi’s day, with Leni patiently sitting there smiling.) As with every wedding you generally … 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

A Letter To My Boy

A Letter To My Boy

Oh DKD do you have any idea how much you brighten my life? How much you make me smile so broadly I think my cheeks will split? How you make coming home from work that extra bit special? It’s your cheeky face, your grubby little hands, your dimply bum, your chunky thighs and your long … Continue reading

Boob Walk

Boob Walk

The Moonwalk 2013 is now less than a month away. Gulp. For those that don’t know the Moonwalk is a marathon in London organized by a charity called Walk the Walk. Walk the Walk came about 16 years ago when a group of 13 women completed the New York Marathon in just their bras to … Continue reading
