Review: Mess Free Feeding With Bibado

Weaning is a messy business. It’s as much about exploring and playing with food as it is about eating it. Poppy seems to enjoy getting her hands in her mouth and spreading her food on herself, her bumbo and the tablecloth, which she seems to have a fascination with. Until now we’ve been using a… Continue reading Review: Mess Free Feeding With Bibado

Brangelina: Who Cares?

Hold the press, Brad and Angelina have split up. She’s filed for divorce. She’s allegedly blaming his dope smoking and drinking. Or did he cheat? Does Jen want him back? (I doubt it, that was years ago. Yawn). Who the hell even cares?! Not me for one. They, like any other couple are just a couple. They… Continue reading Brangelina: Who Cares?

Recipe: Plum & Almond Cake

OK, so this totally contradicts my healthy eating post but I made this cake last week and it’s delicious!  Plums are in season at the moment and I picked up a punnet for 49p from Aldi, so it would have been rude not to bake a cake.

Kick up The Arse Mondays

What started out as a good summer of being healthy and active has gone a little awry. Seven weeks of school summer holidays seemed to mean more wine and gin sneaking in whereas normally we don’t drink during the week. Before you think I’ve turned into an old wino, we’re not big drinkers but a… Continue reading Kick up The Arse Mondays

What’s In A Name?

Why is it we spend most of our pregnancy debating baby names but then once our little bundle arrives we call them everything but the name we chose? Is it just me? Oliver was very nearly William before we decided but I decided I preferred Oliver. Straight away we said we would make a concerted… Continue reading What’s In A Name?

Why It’s Good To Be Uniform

Another start to the school year and of course that meant another school hitting the headlines for sending children home for wearing incorrect school uniform. I’m sure it’s the same every year. Last week seemed to turn into a media fiasco at Hartsdown Academy. With a new headteacher in post Matthew Hart appeared to be… Continue reading Why It’s Good To Be Uniform
