Stairway To Heaven, Well… Bed!

Stairway To Heaven, Well… Bed! As often happens when you begin adulting and buy your own home, the things you would have once sighed and rolled your eyes at become incredibly important and not only that but something which you absolutely enjoy! Choosing the right home decor, the really fun part, isn’t the only thing on your mind when it comes to making your home perfect though as there is a lot of hard graft and mess before you get […]

Wonder Cabaret – Norfolk!

Wonder Cabaret – Norfolk! Pre pandemic and lockdown number one was the last time, before we went to Wonder Cabaret, that Jonny and I had been out together in the evening. Since then we’ve had another baby (which has made date night a tiny bit trickier) and we’ve been in and out of lockdowns with theatre and live performances being one of the most greatly affected of all the arts. It’s wonderful then to be able to get out and […]

You’re Going To Be A Dad – By Daddilife Books – A Review!

You’re Going To Be A Dad – By Daddilife Books – A Review! When I was pregnant with my first baby Florence, I remember pouring through Pregnancy magazines and manuals all the way through, devouring the information about the step-by-step stages of my pregnancy and relishing all the details. I even took a big stack of magazines on holiday with me which is when my husband began to read them too. He loved soaking up the information just as much […]

Our 11th Wedding Anniversary!

Our 11th Wedding Anniversary! We have three anniversary dates that we like to celebrate, call it a bit much and maybe it is but I’m a firm believer in celebrating all the good things because why in heavens not? Jonny and I got together on Christmas Eve in the Year 2000 and our 21 years of being together is coming up this December but our wedding anniversaries, yep, plural, are celebrated on both dates too. We got legally married on […]

Mother’s Ruin?!

Mother’s Ruin?! I went out Saturday night to celebrate a friend’s 40th. I wrote in my EDP column about my fun evening where I drank a little too much, then very tongue in cheek style poked fun at myself having to parent through a hangover the next day. My children were safely being looked after and my husband remained entirely sober. In my world there’s no harm done here but wow… Read the comments section on the paper then come […]

Love Rings!

Love Rings! The giving of rings to symbolise love dates back as far as the 16th centrury and is to demonstrate no end. A never ending circle to wear always and celebrate relationships be they promised to one another, betrothed or wed. I had thought myself not too concerned with such tradition when I got married (eleve years ago this month) but over the years it became a point of upset for me that I had declined an engagement ring […]

LOVEVERY create the most beautiful toys for children, they are just gorgeous to look at, hold and to play with and while Posie has been adoring her play gym since she was a newborn (she’s now 7 months), Raffie has been utterly mesmerised by the LOVEVERY blocks set which he plays with in an absolute huge variety of ways. I wrote about the play gym when we first started using it here and the blocks, well, I […]

Wobbel Yoga With The Yoga Feed – Norwich!

Wobbel Yoga With The Yoga Feed! – Norwich Raffie, Posie and I were very lucky getting to experience some new Wobbel Classes run by The Yoga Feed Norwich last term. We had an absolutely brilliant time sampling this wonderful activity I’d not heard of before and Raffie still keeps asking when we are going back, alas the days have changed and clash with nursery for us right now but boy we are keeping our eye open in case that changes.

Piccolo Baby Food!

Piccolo Baby Food! Despite having had four babies now, I wouldn’t say on any level that I’m a weaning expert. I blame my children for this rather than my lack of enthusiasm as frankly I’ve served up extremely tempting fodder over the years and they have all rebuffed most of it. Posie seems to be no exception in her first foray into food and is being incredibly selective, especially when it comes to the spoon. Not keen would be my […]
