When we picked our house (See my House to Home: Third Time Lucky post here) I said I wanted an under the stairs seat where we can sit and read books, because that’s what I’d seen on Pinterest. Continue reading “House To Home: Bay Window Seat Bliss!”
In May 2014, I was about 14 weeks pregnant when me and Katy went to The Baby Show at the NEC. Continue reading “Picking a Pushchair! The Updated Version!”
Back in July last year we started looking for our first home. We were renting a new build, three bed part furnished house, so I had high expectations of what I wanted. You can see some photos of what our rented house was like here. Sometimes you don’t know what you want until you start searching for houses! Continue reading “House to Home: Third Time Lucky”
I’m going to be writing a post once a week about something that we’ve done as a family the previous week. It’s something that, as a family, we need to be more proactive about. We need to spend more quality time together.
We’ve recently been to the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rooftop Restaurant in Stratford-Upon-Avon for Afternoon Tea for my mother in law’s Mother’s Day and Birthday present. Yes, as always, we were late and didn’t have a weekend free to fit it in! Continue reading “RSC Rooftop Restaurant: Afternoon Tea!”
Toddlers have a lot of toys. Toddlers have a lot of annoying toys. It turns out toddlers also have a lot of awesome toys! Continue reading “Vtech Toot Toot Fun”
I am a messy person. I’m sorry Dan! I doubt there will ever be any change to this, it’s just who I am. Continue reading “Cleaning Crazy”
Dan and I are big kids. We love to mess around, we love playing with Alfie’s toys and we love Pixar films. So booking Disneyland Paris for our honeymoon was one of the easiest, and definitely one of the best, decisions we have EVER made. Continue reading “Disneyland Paris”
Is there a right time to have a second baby? Is it 1 year after? 2 years after? What is the perfect age gap?
I’m a mum of one. I’m absolutely certain that I want another baby but I have no idea when. I’m massively broody, that’s just the kind of person I have always been, and probably always will be.

So deciding that we wanted a brother or sister for Alfie was easy. What’s not so easy is deciding when to start trying… Continue reading “When is the ‘right time’ to have another baby?”
We do a lot of travelling so we should be an expert at this. However, we recently flew to Paris which is a whole new kettle of fish for us! So here are some of my top tips for travelling with a toddler!
1. Stock up well with treats! This is a fairly obvious one. Be armed and ready with bribes! Chocolate, sweets, Peppa Pig on the iPad… (Ah so that’s pretty much all of my tips in just one… Hmm now what to write?!)
2. Leave plenty of time! This is one we thought we did well… We didn’t! We ended up getting caught up at airport security waiting for Alfie’s water to be allowed through and running through the terminal to catch our flight. Husband having an asthma attack and being sick and mummy left sorting everything. THREE HOURS IS NEEDED!! You can entertain a toddler for three hours better than you can deal with your husband whinging on a plane for an hour and a half… So leave yourself lots of time to have a nice leisurely stroll through duty free and a coffee before you board. Please see number 8 for more on this!
