Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese Sauce My favourite cookbook of the moment is The Baby Led Weaning Cookbook.  Anything I have made from this goes down well with both Robot and Dave.   This recipe comes from this book, I have slightly adapted it here, but seriously go and buy the book!  Here is loads …

Who knew! Mothers Day and more

While pondering my blog and working on schedules and post ideas I decided, for hopefully my sanity, that I wouldn’t post on a Sunday.  Why a Sunday, I’m not religious it’s certainly nothing to do with church! It’s not even to do with work loads or house work. Sunday is …

Happy Days #2 The Fonzie

Week #2 of many happy days, here is my round up; 1. Trying to get more time for myself I managed to escape the house on Sunday for a run/jog/limp.  It was dusk and it was brilliant, I got to clear my head and mind ready for a fun week …

Shoes off rule

Our neighbours are dog owners, not the most conscientious ones either.  Our town seems to have a lot of dog owners too, not very conscientious.   We’ve lived in this house 2 years now and we’ve hit double figures on how many times there has been dog do on or very …

Airplanes With Your Baby

Airplanes Also known as the Superman game.  Laying on your back with your knees bent up, lay your little one on your shins and let them fly by moving your legs around.  This one is great for your core stomach muscles too, get toning! Robot loves this game, especially now …

So Much Doubt

Why do we worry?  More importantly, why do I worry?   It is something that has plagued my life, I worry, but I carry on with a smile on my face and a can do attitude.  It doesn’t mean I don’t lie awake freting about why the man down the road …

It’s not just Mummy!

Since birth the Robots favourite person was me, his Mummy… There is a new favourite sneaking in from the side lines, his Daddy!  It’s lovely really as there is a special bond forming between them that especially in those first weeks I thought would never happen.  When he cries, I’m …

Lets schedule some me time

It has come to my attention almost 8 months on that I have had very little time to myself.  Don’t get my wrong I really enjoy spending time with my boys, little & big, so I don’t actually mind.  The past couple of weeks though I have failed to give …

Happy Days #1 A week of decisions

What a nice idea drawing on happy things. Only just finding the linky I feel unprepared to consider all the happy things from this week.  Here goes: I’ve decided to up the anti on my blogging adventure. Writing my  Reasons I want to Blog post was the first step in …

Baby Led Weaning – Our story two months on

We have come a long way since baby led weaning.  Now two months in to feeding we’ve made real progress. Although I have doubted myself on many occasions, especially last week when my little Robot was ill and didn’t touch a thing for two days except milk. This played havoc …

Two tiny toothie pegs

It really hadn’t occurred to me that I will need to start brushing Robots teeth. A friend asked me am I doing this and I was like ummm nope! Bad mummy. How do you brush a 7 month olds teeth? I imagine it’s like trying to brush a pet, forcing …

The Baby Trap

Today has been an uphill struggle, I am surprised that I have achieved anything.  I’ve actively sought out being baby trapped!  Those early days when all the Robot would do is sleep on me are long gone.  It used to be a pain getting trapped by a sleeping baby, it …

Alphabet Challenge

In the middle of the night I got all excited about doing a series of blog posts that follow the alphabet.  Each week doing something that begins with the next letter of the alphabet. Am I crazy? You could say that I am a little sleep deprived and have had …

Life Member

If you told me I would ever be a life member somewhere I would have probably laughed at you. I assumed that things like life membership would be too expensive, well not the SYHA. The Scottish Youth Hostel Association has life membership for £100. Why do we want to be …
