Happy, Happy, Happy New Year!

If 2012 was sponsored by Carlsberg, it would (probably) be my best year yet. I got the birth I wish I'd had with my first born Oliver, with my second son Alexander. A truly joyous elective that had me declar...

No Longer A Baby…

If having a baby wasn't enough to make me realise my first born, Oliver (nearly 3) was no longer a baby, then moving to pre-school imminently has truly cemented it. I looked around the pre-school last week as...
Oliver Santa

My Little Santa!

I found this picture of Oliver the other day (then nearly 2) in an adorable little Santa's outfit and thought I'd share it with you! One year is such a long time for toddlers, Oliver has become a lively, independent little chap who wouldn't let me dress him as Santa this year! (Not fair!) I’ll hopefully get one more wear out of it with Baby Alexander then I might have to consider passing it onto someone else or recycling it with other baby clothes.

Not The One (below), one but the one your partner/husband/friend with benefits has agreed if you ever meet (which is extremely unlikely) you can -' you know with' or I don't know, at least kiss.

Christmas Trees: Keeping it Real!

This year, the conifers that have been growing in the garden have become our three small Christmas trees in the home-one for Oliver, one for Alexander and the last for Billy the Cat. Cute right?
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Royal Baby

So a year and a half since the wedding of the century, Kate and Wills have announced via St James Palace that they're expecting a baby- 'a third in line to the throne royal baby' no less- what happy news! It's weirdly making me all broody despite having a 10 week old (I'm blaming the hormones and my babymoon bliss) and if it's affecting me, it will no doubt inspire many others to get procreating as us Brits (and the rest of the world) get totally and utterly swept up in baby fever!

Funny Things My Kid Says

Oliver cracks me up daily. Sometimes I wish I was writing a crazy children's TV series instead of a comedy about warring kebab shop owners...I'd have a lot of material from Mr Comedian I can tell you. Enjoys innit!
Vicki-Honest Mum

Dear Me…

Being a new mum is oh so rewarding but it can be challenging too-the recovery from birth, the sleepless nights, the constant stream of advice from everyone and their Nan...the need to feel yourself again......
