Evelyn's room is possibly my favourite room in our (very small) house! Living in London means, at the moment, we have a two bed home. I love it because it is ours and needed little doing to it when we moved in. Previously owned by a builder, the house was perfectly painted, white and neutral! … Continue reading Evelyn’s Bedroom Tour
In the 820 (give or take a few) days I have been a Mummy I have changed. I have grown and learnt - yes, that's a given. I have taken on this life altering, permanent challenge that will be my greatest success.. blah blah blah. What you don't realise, as you paddle your way through … Continue reading The Many Versions of Mummy!
2016. Lets reflect. Well, this year we have settled properly into our new home and have started to think about how we are going to develop it this year.

The surreal notion of meeting you was overwhelming and I would relive that moment thousands of times if … Continue reading A Letter to my Daughter…

I get to watch this little piece of me grow and change and learn and discover the world. Today we went for Evelyn's 10 … Continue reading Happy Birthday Mummy!!
Maternity leave seems like such a distant memory these days! Going back to work has been a few things. Emotional. Exhausting. Frantic. Enjoyable. Surprising. I knew it would always happen and I was prepared for all of these emotional situations! One thing I will say to all those 'whirlwind' mummies who are still in the … Continue reading Back to Work

Cesarean. C Section. Through the 'sun roof'. The other way of giving birth. It never entered my head that I might end up having a c-section. In my head they are used in drastic cases. Emergencies. Evelyn was overdue. Midwife told me she was fine but "didn't want to budge just yet". This was ok … Continue reading The C Word
