Some of our little models taking a break

When I was a little girl I played outside in my Wendy house, on my swings or my preferred play time activity, making mud-pies! I have never in my life been able to use any kind of game console or in fact any game that requires hand-eye coordination. My brother loved to let me...

Feeding your offspring, from breast to bolognese

Just one example of the mess my boys can make!

Its a strange thing but I think I am amongst many mothers who never minded being woken up in the night by their newborn babies. That total exhaustion when you have just had an hour or two in bed and are woken for another 30 mins breastfeeding whilst sitting up and fighting sleep never...

Paradise Found

Ok so Studland in Dorset, while lovely, is not what you’d first think of as paradise. It’s not your idilic tropical island with all the warmth and the crystal blue sea and allure of a foreign land anyway. But, if you’re a parent looking for a relaxing break without the hassle of travel then...

What to give when friends and relations have babies?

Of course with teenage children I’m a little on the old side to have friends having babies, but whilst there is not the rush I knew 10 years ago, there are still a few brave souls pregnant in their 40’s and of course a few second time round marriages with men my age and...

amba

When I found out Amba was going to be born earlier than expected, my heart just shattered. I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know how I’d cope. At 29 weeks and weighing 2 pound 5 ounces it was hard for us to believe what happened over the last few hours and I...

The last 18 months have been a crazy and remarkable rollercoaster for me. Probably like a lot of you reading this. I fell (very surprisingly but very brilliantly) pregnant on my honeymoon, and in the blink of an eye I had gone from cocktail-sipping, sun-bathing, retail therapy, career girl about town to Mrs married...
