Wicked Wednesday 17/9/14

I’m beginning to think that baby-led weaning would be easier and just as productive if, instead of giving baby her food, I just threw a bowl of vegetables on the ground and then made a bottle for her. Oh, I should probably smear some food on her face and clothes before handing over the bottle. […]

Body by Vi 90-day challenge: day 0

As I explained in my previous post, I’ve decided give meal replacement shakes a try to see if they can give my weight loss the boost I so desperately need. I’m still a bit skeptical about the product, but I’m going to see how it goes. I ordered the Balance Kit early on Sunday morning. This […]

My decision to try meal replacements

I’ve always been a skeptic when it comes to losing weight with products like diet pills and meal replacements. Ever since I started my weight loss journey, I’ve believed that shedding the pounds is about eating the right foods and getting enough exercise. That’s why I was such a fan of Slimming World and the […]

Haggis Wellington with whisky sauce

Since today’s kind of a big deal in the UK, what with the referendum voting and all, I decided to make a suitable dinner for my Scottish hubby. Especially since he can’t take part in this major moment in his homeland’s history because we live in London. Obviously, the dish I made would have to include […]


A musical interlude

La la la la! *Ahem* Oh, hi. Sorry, I didn’t see you there. I was just singing to my baby. Yes, that was “singing”. Why do you ask? Because it sounded like a dying hyena? *Sniff* That’s a bit harsh don’t  you think? Not harsh enough, you say? Oh dear. *Sigh* I love singing and I […]

Wicked Wednesday 10/9/014

Sometimes you just have to set your baby down somewhere for a moment. This time, that somewhere turned out to be a basket of damp laundry. She didn’t seem to mind. In fact, she seemed rather amused by the whole situation. Wicked Wednesdays is a weekly linky hosted by Brummy Mummy of Two. It embraces […]

Britain's Driest Nappy Trial

Are Pampers Active Fit Britain’s Driest Nappy?

Like every new mother, I was inundated with advice – mostly unsolicited – about everything baby related. Some of that advice I took to heart (“get the best baby mattress you can afford”), some of it I puzzled over (“sleep when the baby sleeps”) and some of it I ignored completely (“you absolutely must use a wipe […]

Greenwich Tall Ships Festival

Greenwich Tall Ships Festival

So there’s something I should tell you: I love, Love, LOVE tall sailing ships. I don’t really know anything about them. But I love them. This isn’t something I really knew about myself until I worked in Canary Wharf and regularly saw ships moored in the docks there. I always got stupidly happy about them. One time, […]

The baby hasn’t moved into her room yet – one reason is that the laundry keeps taking over. Where does it all come from??? Is it breeding? I have to admit, I tidied up a bit before I took this photo. Yes, it was even worse – but I just couldn’t bear posting how it […]

Ramblings of a sleep-deprived mummy

It’s 2:30am. I’ve been awake for two hours. So has Pumpkin. We only slept for two hours before that.I’m so tired. The house is a mess. A mountain of laundry. The book/DVD/clothing cull only half done. Kitchen is a disaster. At least I’ve kept up with the dishes. Why won’t she sleep? We both recovered […]



So, the other day, I posted some pictures that I took at my parents’ house – of some of the animals that live there. Did you see it? If not, click here. Then Baby and I got on an airplane and flew several thousand miles. Then we got on another airplane and flew a few […]
