I am a huge fan of the Royal Family. Yesterday I spent most of the day watching Sky News, well in between actual parenting, but by the end of the afternoon even Harley was excited to see the new Prince leave the hospital. I remember when I was a little girl thinking, like most young […]

It’s almost a year ago since I discovered I was pregnant with Ada. It was very early on Easter Monday morning and I just had a feeling I should do a test whilst Harley was sleeping and Tom was experiencing one of the worst hangovers he’s ever had. And there it was, the blue line […]

Can’t quite believe this but in my whole 31 years of life I had never been to the circus. Lucky for me The Paulos Circus rolled into town (Coleshill) just in time for the Easter weekend and we were invited to watch. We took Harley and my niece, Poppy, as well as (quite bravely) Ada. […]

Harley is three now (SOB) and is technically no longer classed as a toddler – he’s a pre-schooler but I’m not ready for that. Every night after we’ve finished the bedtime routine Harley will walk with us to his bedroom door to see us out and tell us that he’s in charge. Never has a […]

Well, I’m knackered. Having two children is knackering. It’s like a gentle chaos and there’s a never-ending list but it’s totally worth it. Ada is 10 and a half weeks old now (where does the time go?!) and I *think* we’ve found our new normal. I didn’t really have any expectations before Ada arrived other […]

* This is a sponsored post to promote The Baby Room at Smyths. So I’ll be honest with you, I spend a good proportion of my life at the shops, and of late those shops tend to be toy shops or anywhere that stocks Cars blind bags (Harley’s latest obsession therefore the perfect bribe to […]

So for the last three years I’ve harboured a huge amount of hate for soft play, probably more than the average person. Why? Well there’s not one exact reason I can pinpoint but I’ve always hated the whole experience, especially when trying to get Harley to leave, I’m talking tears, screams, screeches, basically full-blown toddler […]

Ada is now six weeks old and I can’t remember life before her, she’s an absolute dream. (all the heart emojis) Throughout my pregnancy with Ada I felt so much more laidback than I was when I was pregnant with Harley. I was so sure I had it all figured out, after all we’d already […]

10pm on Thursday 4th January; when our family became complete. Ada’s arrival was quick and wonderful (albeit very painful but the gas and air helped) and now I couldn’t imagine life without her. We’re all besotted and Harley is obsessed. After being induced with Harley (due to his size – he weighed 9lbs but was […]

I was so convinced I was going to have this baby early but now I’m not so sure. I’m trying everything I can to try and encourage this little one to come out before Christmas including all the spicy food, bouncing on the exercise ball, the raspberry leaf, I’ve even brought a Sex Bomb bath […]
