Thank you to all the partners and coparents, the ones who share the mealtimes and poopy nappies.

This past year we gone through the biggest … Continue reading To My Husband

The UK is in the middle of a heatwave and I'm hating it. I'm a pale person with Irish ancestry, I do not do Summer, the heat, the sun, the insects. And sadly my son seems to be the same way. The first week or so was hellish, Frey was constantly cranky, not sleeping properly … Continue reading Baby’s First Heatwave
