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. […]

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! […]

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 […]

This is a sponsored post. The flu is unpleasant for everyone who catches it, but for the young, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, it can mean much more than a few missed days of work or school. This year has seen one of the most intense strains yet, meaning that families should […]

Chinese Lantern
Feb 14

On Tuesday night, Little I was allowed to stay up a bit past her bedtime to join in the Chinese New Year celebrations at our local Boscombe Chine Gardens. She’s such a big fan of Rapunzel and the Disney movie Tangled, and for those of you who’ve seen it you’ll know that there’s a part […]

On the Farm jigsaw
Feb 05

I hope I’m not the only parent who sometimes finds role play a little exhausting…particularly when it’s all that your little one wants to do! It’s lovely to see and of course role play is great for encouraging creativity and storytelling, but when you’re required to act out the parts of the ugly sisters, prince […]

Jan 07

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 […]

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 […]
