Pilates. It’s safe to say, I’m converted! Look, I know I’m extremely late to this party, but to be honest, I kinda lumped Pilates in with yoga and thought that because it wasn’t high intensity that it wasn’t a great work out. Which is stupid really, I actually had no idea what was involved. I’m … Continue reading Pilates for postnatal strength and fitness
I’ve been a little bit quiet on the blog lately, basically because I’ve been too busy! In my spare moments between #mumlife I’ve been trying to devote my time to my design business which has actually been pretty busy the last month.This is awesome but it’s a real juggle doing the “work from home mum” … Continue reading Taking Stock – 4th April 2018 Edition
Two and a half years of being a mum! Crazy how quickly it has gone (and at times very slowly). My last update was at 18 months old - I really must write these more regularly because although the last year has flown, it also seems like a lifetime ago.

There have been times when I have felt guilty for sending Milla to daycare because I’m not back at work yet and isn’t it my job to be looking after her? Do we really have the money for this luxury on … Continue reading The one about daycare
Why yes, I am talking about sleep again! I feel like my life is ruled by kids sleep. I was reading back over my last sleep post about how we trained Milla at 9 months and over the time since then we have had a few regressions and retraining. Plus a new baby who, in … Continue reading Toddler Sleep and the Big Girl Bed Saga
There are literally thousands of things that could go on this list but this is all that my sleep deprived brain could manage right now. And nobody likes a long winded post do they? Let's call it part 1 and to be continued. 1/ You can survive for months on very little and broken sleep. … Continue reading The things I’ve learnt about motherhood
This post is inspired by Pip Lincolne. Just a little insight into life for us right now. 11 days until baby! Otherwise known as Milla turned 20 months today!

As there is only about a month to go until we are back in the newborn sleep deprivation trenches, I thought I would write about sleep (or lack thereof) in our first year of parenting. This is another topic that can be tricky to talk about - everyone has different experiences, different opinions on self … Continue reading The one about sleep
