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

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
The C Word
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
Middle Finger up to Mummy!
Evelyn is 8 months old and she surprises me every day with how much she knows and how aware of everything she is. This is beautiful, magical and wonderful..... Well.... Most of the time.
