If this bed’s a rockin… (3)

If this bed’s a rockin…

Feel free to come in, as it’s just Yawnofthedad and I failing miserably at getting into bed quietly. Yep, it’s another night of sneak in, successfully manage to make absolutely no noise so we don’t wake Bobs up, then crawl into bed…..”CRUNCH”, “CRUNCH”, “OTHER LOUD, SPRING-RELATED NOISES”. Yeah, the first 6 months did not go

Winter Ramblings

Winter Ramblings

Well it’s now officially winter. When I say “officially”, I don’t mean because we’re now in mid-December, but more because of the easily audible screams of Yawnofthedad as I try to warm my feet on him in bed. Being residents of Manchester/Salford we tend not to get much of actually wintery weather. By that I

DressingGate 2014

Little Tikes activity garden

Little Tikes Activity Garden review

So it’s official. Our Bobs is now a crawler, and not just a slow one, a ridiculously fast one (especially if there’s a banana at the other end of the room). And even “worse”, she’s now over the last few days, started to pull herself up onto things. Our little girl is growing up fast

Joie i-AnchorSafe Car seat

Joie i-AnchorSafe™ System car seat review

I must confess, I get really confused when choosing the right car seat, it just seems so complicated… different sizes, different ages, different weights, different bases and some face different ways too! Yet, car seats are one of those purchases you make very informed decisions about. If you’re looking for a safe but flexible car seat for a

Jane Plan review

My Jane Plan journey: the beginning

So, let me start this blog by saying I’m not very good at dieting… temptation is a good friend of mine and so is chocolate… and crisps…. and biscuits… and… I could go on. If there’s an excuse for eating, I’m there and one of the biggest most celebrated excuses for indulging myself is pregnancy. That
