Ok, so today Evelyn and a I set off on an adventure. Only to Nottingham but when travelling with a baby it's a pretty big deal! What to pack? Which train to get? How much luggage can I carry?

Yesterday we went to our usual Monday baby group to get weighed and chat to the health visitor.

I used to love going swimming as a child and would beg my Dad to take me to the pools with the big slides and inflatable toys! I learned to swim from an early age and have never been… Continue reading Just Keep Swimming!!

So, having been on a master class course to becoming a mother (nearly 7months into an 18 year degree!) I have come to realise that there are talents that get taught along the way! Tests we must pass. Qualifications we adopt in order to gain merit! Every new mum develop these particular skills without realising.… Continue reading Super Mum to the rescue!!!!
