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! I’m not one to fall in with tradition, so my two favourite Christmas songs are curve

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

Google searches when you have a newborn baby


Google search history when you have a newborn I thought I’d have a look through my google search history to remind myself of exactly how clueless I have been and how much I have resorted to google’s help in the first few months! It has also been a great memory aid for things I’ve forgotten!

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

The RockingMotherhood Tag


Thank you to the lovely Nicola at Mummytodex for sharing the # RockingMotherhood tag with me. I have decided to take part as Nic is so kind as to have sent me a few things now and I’m a bit scared she’s going to stop if I don’t stop being lazy! . I have listed the

Capture


I started to think that if RLT looked through images of his childhood, that there would be very few of us together. Therefore, I have had to request that my OH capture some moments when we’re together. Looking after a baby on your own for most of the day means that you get a phone
