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 …

Aubergine and Courgette Baked Risotto

Aubergine and Courgette Baked Risotto 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!  …

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 …

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 …
