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 […]

Beckley Farm field
Jun 11

Last year we visited Open Farm Sunday for the first time, and we had so much fun that we rocked up again this year and asked some friends to join us. It’s a fantastic family event, full of activities and educational fun for children of all ages. This time we gave ourselves from 1pm till […]

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 […]

monty's wine
May 14

I can’t remember the last time my husband and I went out together on a Saturday night…seriously! Before Little I arrived I remember us discussing how we would try to get out once a month still, which we managed to achieve for the first couple of months. But I think we quickly realised that we’re […]

bowl of granola
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. […]

Grubbies dungarees pockets
Mar 26

Firstly, an apology to my readers for my lack of blogging recently. There is a very good reason for it, and all will become clear shortly! I am hoping that normal service will resume very soon, and in the meantime, please don’t go anywhere. Over the past couple of months, we’ve been sent some gorgeous […]

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! […]

eczema in a baby
Feb 19

This guest post is written by an old school friend of mine, Stacey Callow. At little man’s eight week check, the doctor noticed that his skin was looking a bit dry so he sent us home with some bath lotion to try. Having tried varying amounts (as recommended on the bottle), it seemed to only […]
