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
Frey is nine months, yes nine months, I can't believe it. I thought I would break down this post the same as I did for his six month update. Starting off with his eating habits, he's now on 3 meals a day. It's still very much traditional weaning, mostly due to the fact his hand … Continue reading Frey at 9 months

I got my hair cut the other day, I've had it cut from halfway down my back to just skimming my shoulders. And I love … Continue reading 5 Things That Make Me happy
Have you missed me?? Because I have certainly missed you; and I know, I know I took you for granted and didn't appreciate you when you were here. But if (when) you come back, I promise I'll treat you right and never take you for granted again. I understand why you had to go away … Continue reading Dear Lie-ins and Uninterrupted Sleep
