Problems With Baby Weaning

When it came to weaning Bob was a dream! I followed Annabel Karmel’s baby weaning plan and made all of my own purees. I had never heard of baby led weaning 5 years ago. I weaned Bob at 5 months. The guidelines back then suggested weaning between 4 and 6 months whereas now they recommend weaning from 6 months. Bob ate everything that I made for her and she really enjoy all of the different flavours. She moved on to [click here to read on]

Oversharing And The Unspeakable

Since becoming a parent I have met lots of other mummies. Some have become close friends and others I have chatted to briefly whilst our children played together. I still find it strange how quickly you can bond with people when you have children in common.  You would think that you would stick to pleasantries when you don’t know someone but being a mummy seems to give you a bond.

One month we looked into quick loans. We thought this would help us to make it to the end of the month without getting us into long term debt.

Under The Sea Party - Little Mermaid Cake

I have made Bob’s birthday cake every year. The cake always matches the theme of her party. When Bob was little I had full control over the theme and the cake and I could do things that I found easy. Her clown cake is still one of my favourites. Now Bob tells me which sort of cake she would like. When she asked for a Disney Princess Castle Cake I panicked! I like to do most of the decorations in [click here to read on]

Our Living Room Makeover

We are currently in the process of a living room make over. Since we moved to this house our living room has always been mismatched. It is quite big and the sofas we had seemed lost on the own so we ended up putting them all in the room together. I have been craving a lovely matching living room and it is almost a reality! My husband took some persuading. He thought the sofas were fine and he loves our [click here to read on]
