Twenty wishes for 2017


2017 has a lot to live up to as 2016 was so good to me! However, it was absolutely manic; moving house, changes to job, having a baby, learning not to interfere at work whilst I’m on maternity leave and turning my frown upside down; all have left me a bit frazzled! Thank you to

Quiz of the Year


Thanks to Care Johnson for the tag – here are my quiz of the year answers! What was your highlight of 2016? Having RLT on 17th June and labour only taking a few hours! Name one thing you are most likely to remember about 2016 if asked in five years time? RLT obvs Sum up

New Years Resolutions


We are not even 12 hours in to 2017 and I have woken up with the most awful sense of dread!  It is the 1st January, which means it is exactly two months until I leave RLT to return to work. Instead of being grateful for this extended time ( I had originally planned to

RLT’s First Christmas


So, RLT’s first Christmas has been and gone! As usual I got massively anxious about everything, such as having people dig at my parenting methods, RLT getting overwhelmed and out of his routine, the state of the house and the cat feeling left out. Turns out, it wasn’t all that bad (with exception of the

Baby Yoga Review


At six months old, RLT has done three terms of baby yoga! Not bad, ey? Not your every day baby activity, so here is our review! Firstly, baby yoga classes in the UK, are nothing like the extreme videos that you may have been of a woman in Egypt throwing babies around! OMG, I couldn’t

Christmas music


There has been a dedicated Christmas music channel on sky since around August! I personally think it is absolutely ridiculous to listen to Christmas music before 15th December, unless you are in a shop and you have no choice!

Note to self – me six months ago


Note to self – to me six months ago, knowing what I know now. I’ve decided to write a post to myself six months ago, to get down the things I’ve learned and to encapsulate what a journey the past six months have been! Hi Crabstix So your little boy is due about now, these

What to buy a six month old for Christmas


What do you buy a six month old for Christmas?  If someone asked them what you actually wanted for Christmas, it would probably be to FINALLY get that dummy in your own mouth, or your foot! Having a June baby is great as you can split the wants and needs in six monthly intervals! So

The Christmas Tag


Thank you to the second best Nicola I know 🙂 for the tag (she’s at Mummy to Dex, I recommend you have a look at the supermum she is, mixing up a storm in the kitchen with this baby led weaning malarky). Reading her post this morning got me sooooo Christmassy that I went out

My Alphabetical Year in Review! 2016


My 2016 alphabetical year in review! Big thanks to the lovely Maria over at Mummy to Logan  for posting the original Alphabetical year in review, and bringing it to my attention. I should be doing housework, but RLT has decided he can’t sleep in his cot today, only in my bed, so I have to

Kielder Review


We chose Kielder as the destination for a winter break and the first holiday for RLT at aged five and a half months. Kielder Waterside is a development within Kielder Water and Forest and within the Leaplish Forest Park, which is also where the Winter Wonderland is based. We opted to go for 4 nights
