We’re still in limbo at my mums waiting for out building work to finish. We’re are looking forward to getting home, not just because we’ll have a new kitchen and living space to decorate but because we can slot back into our routine. I haven’t been meal planning while we are here and it just

11 months old….. wow. I can’t believe we are here, and that in 1 month Piglet will be one year old. It won’t be long until I’m sobbing into my tea cup about the fact I have a toddler. Following on from his development at 10 months, he’s continued to change daily. We have been

When Piglet was born the one thing I felt totally indifferent about was weaning. I was never particularly excited about getting him started on “real” food. Quite happily plodding along with milk I just assumed we would start weaning at 6 months. The guidelines these days state you should start weaning at 6 months, and

Amy from The Smallest Of Things tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood tag. I like the idea of it, as the general idea is you list 10 ways in which you are rocking motherhood. In a world full of criticism and doubt it is meant to be a pat on the back. Sounds great right? In
