Its an oldie but a goodie. Good old carrot and coriander soup with herb and black pepper bread. Now you might be thinking how on earth dose anyone have time to make bread with kids? And I wouldn't blame you for it. I mean bread is notoriously known for being a faff to make and… Continue reading Soup and Bread
The past few weeks has brought alot of excitement. There's alot of changes and alot going on which means re-evaluation. I've been reviewing products, weaning from breast to bottle, starting a new job, planning a mummie march and trying to keep sane whilst being a mum, a friend a daughter, a partner and myself.

Monday's have a bad rep. The world seems to hate Monday and dread it's arrival. I however feel a Monday is what you make it. Admittedly I do not work every Monday so that probably helps, I do work every Saturday though and I don't hate that day of the week either. The average person… Continue reading Happy Monday!
This has been one of the most packed weeks I think I've lived in a long time.. there's been job interview, trial shifts, party planning, birthday prep, doctors appointments, march planning (I'll post more on that later) and a wonderful bout of some horrendous tonsillitis to top it all off. There's been tears, tantrums, laughs,… Continue reading What a week!

My little one seems to enjoy these stories just as much, I don't know if it's the silly voices we put on or it's all the bright colours but she loves them either way.… Continue reading Books books books!
Yesterday we had fear like I've never felt before. We woke up hours before the baby and come 11:30 she finally awoke. To many this is the dream. For us this was not normal. Our little lady slept all morning, when she finally awoke she was weak, limp and somehow still tired. She was burning… Continue reading Sickness

Dinner time can often become a drag. I like to eat healthy, eat quick and eat fresh. The problem is though that I very easily get stuck juggling the same five dishes every week. Stir-fry is a favourite when rushed off our feet and we love a good sweet potato curry but very easily you… Continue reading Stuck in a rut
