There’s something no one tells you about having a baby. It is literally the best way to sit and binge-watch TV shows. THE BEST. I mean, it’s exhausting and you’re so tired some (most) days you can barely function, but in those early months when the baby just needs to be fed and cuddled endlessly all day long and all night long, you can sit on the couch, turn on Netflix, and watch episode after episode of a show while the baby feeds, or while it refuses to sleep anywhere but snuggled up on your chest.

I didn’t bake much while I was pregnant last year. It’s weird, but I actually lost my baking mojo. I wanted to bake a lot, but every time I did, I messed it up. Even with simple things I’d made before. I just couldn’t get things right, so I gave up in the end. But… Continue reading ->
This definitely isn’t a Mummy blog, but after having been to hospital twice to deliver babies, I’ve learned a little something about what to pack in my bag for the hospital stay and what I didn’t really need despite those lists of what I supposedly needed to bring with me.

Having a baby is a weird thing. I mean, it’s amazing and exhausting because you know, you get a baby at the end of the forty odd weeks, but it does a weird thing to a person’s sense of style. Pre-baby you’re confident (mostly) about what you like to wear and what you’re comfortable in… Continue reading ->
