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 …

Happy World Thinking Day

Just before having the Robot I gained my 10 year volunteer award from Girlguiding.  Super exciting as you get a badge and if you’ve been a Guide or a Scout in your life you’ll know how exciting getting a badge is! That’s where I stopped. I’m having a break from …

Guacamole

New year, new feed the baby regimes, I decided I would try all the foods I don’t like in an effort that the Robot will like it someday.  I started with pear, turns out it is just the texture of the skin I don’t like and pear especially ripe is …

Happy Six Month Birthday

People told me having children would take over your life.  What I hadn’t expected was that it means every waking hour!  Even those hours you can’t sleep in, and it’s because I’m a mother that I just can’t sleep! You spend the first months of your child’s life adapting to …
