The Princess is an outdoor kinda gal. It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing (except she doesn’t care too much for snow, it makes her “handies cold”), she likes to be outside. Me, I’m definitely a fair-weather-only gal. I don’t enjoy getting soaked in a downpour, I absolutely loathe the snow, and the wind makes me… Continue reading
Category Archives: The Things I Like
Breastfeeding, for me, has always been a very simple, cheap experience. The only things I have ever had to buy to make the experience more comfortable have been nursing bras and breast-pads. Even these things are not necessities for everyone – those mums who are lucky enough to be able to pull a regular bra down in order to feed, and not have a milk supply so fast and furious… Continue reading
A little while ago I was chatting with other mums at the breastfeeding cafe, you know, all the usual stuff, doesn’t time go quickly, don’t these teeny babies change so fast, when will the bags under our eyes stop growing etc etc. All this got us on to the topic of baby clothes and just how emotional it can be packing up one size of clothes to make room for… Continue reading
Back in November (seems like more than just a couple of months ago, no?) I was very kindly sent a lovely package of skincare for me and my babies.
While pregnant with The Princess, I saw an advert for a ½ price sale of very… Continue reading
I was recently sent a gorgeous breastfeeding pillow from a very lovely lady named Melissa, who, after struggling with positioning while breastfeeding her first baby, created her own pretty, shaped, portable pillow.
Now, being of slight stature, and with a “freakishly short body” (thanks, sis), I haven’t ever really struggled with positioning or needed to pack cushions and pillows under… Continue reading
Then I realised it was for sale.
So I bought it.
And now I can’t wait for Christmas so I can… Continue reading
Just over three years ago, if I wasn’t on a night-shift or on-call, weekends were spent out with friends, drinking and dancing, or on a date with The Boyfriend, and generally having a rather good time.
Nowadays, the term ‘weekend’ holds little meaning to me, as The Boyfriend only has one real weekend off every six weeks, and I’m currently on maternity leave, so one day is really rather… Continue reading
It’s safe to say I am fairly passionate about breastfeeding. It’s something very important to me, not only because of the nutritional and health benefits to babies, but also because of how it has cemented the bond between me and both my little ones.
As with everything in life, however, there is always a downside, even to seemingly wonderful things. With breastfeeding Little Pea, it’s… Continue reading
Little Pea is five weeks old now. It still feels like the first week with him in many ways, yet I can’t imagine him not being here now, and I’m getting much more used to him and his little ways. Well, when I say ‘ways’ I actually mean ‘penis’. It was terrifying changing his nappy the first few times – I’m so used to dealing with girl bits, with having… Continue reading
The Baby was recently sent a beautiful summer dress and cardigan from the very nice people at Vertbaudet. Here she is putting it through it’s paces:
After all this, the dress has been washed several times on a low temperature, and has come up looking as good as new every time. Thumbs up from The Baby and thumbs up… Continue reading
