Our 1 year wedding anniversary

Our 1 year wedding anniversary

On Saturday Yawnofthedad and I celebrated our first year of marriage – woohoo! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone but it’s not exactly been a year without any life changing milestones so it doesn’t suprise me that this date crept up on us so quickly. Back in May last year, we made a very, ummm,

Frugi Outerwear

Frugi school coat review

Are you all ready for it? School, I mean. Squish is starting reception class next week which feels bitter sweet at the moment. It’s been my first summer holidays being a parent of two and I would be lying if I said I haven’t found it completely and utterly exhausting. Each day has pretty much been

Kaleidoscope of colour

Kaleidoscope of colour

Now, did you know that only 14% of women’s wardrobes are over 50% full with BRIGHT clothes?… I must admit I am one of that 14% which I guess can be a good and a bad thing. Being a fan of bright contrasting colours and bold patterns, when I go shopping I often find that I forget to

When Bitey met Squish

Currently we’re in limbo when it comes to Ellie and at what point we move her into a bigger cot, which is currently in Squish’s room. At the moment she’s cosily sleeping in her Snuzpod next to me, which makes the middle of the night feeds a whole lot easier. She tends to sleep through most nights

Funky Giraffe Bibs Review

Funky Giraffe Bibs Review

Time travelling back to the baby Squish days, there wasn’t a bandana bib in sight… well, either that or my unobservant gene was working at it’s best in 2009/2010 (probably the latter). Anyway, I don’t remember Squish being a particularly drooly baby but Eleanor, my oh my… she loves a good drool…. probably because she’s constantly biting

Family albums the era of instagram

Family albums: the era of instagram

Every day, pretty much without fail, I take at least one photo of my children. My days are filled with overwhelming urges to capture moments through fear I may one day forget.  I guess part of this is also connected with feeling like these moments are so special I want to share them with the world. It’s
