The Supermarket.

It’s quite a rarity that it’s just Harley and I on the supermarket trip, I usually leave him at home (with his dad on the weekend, not alone alone) or Tom will come along and keep Harley occupied whilst adding several bottles of different varieties of barbecue sauce to the trolley. But today it was […]

8 signs that you watch too much kids TV.

Happy 2017 everybody. Bit slack on the old blog post front, it’s almost February and I’m only just posting my first of 2017, oops. Probs because I’ve been watching too much kids TV, see what I did there? Before I became a mum I thought Harley would just watch TV as a treat. Then I […]

My Christmas fails. πŸŽ…πŸΌ

I love Christmas. It’s definitely my favourite time of the whole year. I love the music, the films, the hustle and bustle at the shops, the Christmas chocolates (I’m a Celebrations girl FYI) and the general ‘it’s Christmas, let’s everybody be happy’ vibes. But with this great love of Christmas comes a huge issue when […]

Toddler Moments.

Life with a toddler is so LOL. Literally, like you will laugh out loud and it doesn’t matter where you are. Toddlers do the funniest things, they should totally make a Secret Life of Toddler style programme. Moments that have made me laugh out loud recently include… The ‘Don’t mind me, I’m just lying on […]


Well it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written anything on here. It’s been a busy few weeks of work and events, birthday and engagement celebrations, and just general life really. I so wish that they’d stop wasting their time trying to make smartphones smarter and instead focus their efforts on creating a real life […]

Best Week Ever.

Not going to lie, I’ve had a pretty good week. Short of winning the lottery I’m pretty happy. This week I turned 30. Strangely I wasn’t scared/nervous/anxious about turning 30, just excited. Mainly for all the celebrations I’d planned – this birthday is split across three weekends. I am 30 after all. And then something […]

The Good and The Bad.

They say you’ve got to experience the bad to appreciate the good and this couldn’t be truer in motherhood. Some days you feel like you’re winning; your Instagram feed is full of a smiling toddler wandering through the park or you’re hosting the most epic messy play session. And thenΒ other days it’s all tantrums, refusals […]

Happy Birthday to me.

Ok so it’s not my actual birthday (that’s in exactly 30 days when I turn 30 -eek!) but it is The Aspiring Yummy Mummy’s. A year ago today I started my blog and over the past year I’ve shared a whole load of stories and adventures from Harley and me. There’s been the wonderful moments; […]

Holiday. Part Two. This time with a toddler.

So I’m currently in the throes of major holiday blues. Over the past three months we’ve been lucky enough to go away on three breaks; to Bournemouth with my family, to Devon with the boyfriend’s family and have just returned from two glorious weeks in Spain. This equals a huge crash back to reality. Last […]

7 things I learnt during our first public tantrum.Β 

Ok, so it’s happened. The moment you know is inevitable but you’re hoping you’re an exception to the rule. I’m talking about the first very public tantrum.   Ours happened the other week, right slap bang in the middle of the walkway between duvets and cards/stationary/generally just writing shiz that’s cute and looks great in an […]
