My Top 5 Feeding Must Haves

I am a milking machine. Not as often as I was 6 weeks ago but most definitely more than the average persons snacks, because Blake eats little and often. I think she read somewhere that this is what Victoria Beckham does….. However many babies you BF, it’s still bloody hard (and painful) if you’ve not … Continue reading

Introducing my daughter….

Introducing my daughter….

So after consciously uncoupling from my blog for the past 2 months I’m ready to get my blogging on again. And what better way to come back than with a bit of lovely news…..I have a daughter! Wow.

Today I had the pleasure of listening to a talk from Denise Welch as part of a Wellness Week initiative my office is running. Today’s focus is being kind to your mind and Denise spoke about her struggles with depression and addictions.

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!

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
