once upon a time
Jun 18

I’m a bookworm and always have been, but bizarrely, my parents and sister have never shared my enthusiasm for reading (nor does my husband!). Growing up I always had my nose in a book, and most of my childhood memories are of me reading under my duvet with a torch, probably much further into the […]

sugar craft making
May 29

I had a tough challenge on my hands when it came to making Little I’s 4th birthday cake. For months she had been adamant that she wanted a Rapunzel cake. I desperately wanted it to live up to her high expectations and I’d spent quite a lot of time researching online for ideas…but all seemed […]

May 09

I’ve always bought into the school of thought that breakfast is the most important meal in the day. I don’t always have a massive appetite for it, but I never skip it. Little I simply adores breakfast time. One of the first things she always says to me in the morning is “what are we […]

pregnancy bump
May 07

A few weeks ago I mentioned that there was a reason why I hadn’t been blogging so much recently. I was cautious about saying anything too soon, but now that I’ve passed the half-way mark I can let you in on my secret…I’m pregnant! Yes, Little I is soon to become a big sister, to […]

walk with pram
Apr 30

One of the consequences of my husband and I running a business together and working from home is that Little I gets to hear a lot of conversations about work. Good or bad, it’s inevitable, and I actually see it as a positive that she has some transparency over what we do for a living. […]

Bournemouth bloggers
Feb 24

Yesterday I went along to the Bournemouth Bloggers (#bmouthbloggers) meet-up. I’ve attended blogger events in London before, but never anything locally, and so I was keen to find out a bit more about people blogging in the Bournemouth area. On arrival, the first thing I realised was that I was probably the oldest one there! […]

Our Christmas this year didn’t quite go to plan. My husband came down with full-blown flu on Christmas day and retreated to bed for a whole week. Our plans to visit family were totally scuppered. It really wasn’t the Christmas that we’d planned for Little I, and it was a bit of a disappointment all […]

Dec 22

Before the Prosecco is in full flow…I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you, my valued readers, a very happy and restful Christmas. This is my blog’s second Christmas, and over the holiday period I’m hoping it will receive an exciting re-design, which will bring with it lots of new blogging resolutions. While I […]

witch eye
Nov 12

When you have a new baby, you’re sent home from hospital with a stack of leaflets and booklets to read on everything from exercising your pelvic floor, to breastfeeding advice, to what temperature your baby’s room should be at night. I diligently read through most of these and there was one that really stuck in […]

sleeping earache
Oct 23

One of my most vivid memories of childhood is being cuddled up with my Mum with earache. I suffered with earache a lot in my younger years, and bizarrely so did my husband. It therefore comes as no surprise that Little I complains of earache fairly often, usually during the night. It comes and goes […]
