    Let The Kids Have Freedom: Our Weekend In The West Country

    This weekend we were down in the West Country checking out our new house, and visiting family for my birthday. The kids had so much fun, and I’ve been thinking about how important kids freedom is. We are so lucky that my sister and brother-in-law live on and run a beautiful farm, complete with huge amounts of land, pigs, chickens, and a veg patch! This meant that, while we were there, the kids had pretty much all the freedom to explore that they could possibly need.

  • Birthday Reasons Happiest At 29

    It’s My Birthday: 10 Reasons I’m My Happiest At 29!

    I’m not really one to get excited about birthdays, but today is indeed my 29th birthday! It’s not so much that I’m not big into birthdays, I’m just not big on attention full stop (the woman bearing herself & family for all and sundry on a thousand social media platforms. Yup, that’s me.

    5 Pregnancy Rules I Ignored: Why You Should Too!

    Even the first time around when I was pregnant with Amelia, I found myself having to defend certain things that I was or wasn’t doing. Some of the so-called rules out there, after doing my own research I just decided to ignore. Others I just either wasn’t very organised, or couldn’t bear the thought of it (antenatal classes!)

  • New Mum A Letter To You

    New Mum: A Letter To You

      Dear Amanda* It broke my heart to see you crying today. But also, I was glad. I was glad that you let it all out, and I was glad that you could be so honest and open about how you’re feeling. The last time I saw you, you were about 20 weeks pregnant. You were nervous, as all expectant mums would be. With a young child already, you knew that things might be difficult sometimes with a new baby, and we laughed about my own trials and tribulations with 2 small kids! In hindsight, I wish I had told you how emotional the first few months had been for…
