Out of Office

Out of Office

We’re having a little break, because this week we welcomed Fern into the big wide world. It’s been exhausting, but we’re all completely in love with our new arrival, who enjoyed a safe, speedy delivery on Wednesday. I’ll be checking my emails periodically but may […]

39 Weeks

39 Weeks

Time has rushed by and I am now over 39 weeks pregnant with no sign of this baby making an appearance, despite having convinced myself she would be super early. There’s only 6 days left until my due date and I am remembering the excruciating […]

Review: Thumbsie

Review: Thumbsie

Review: Thumbsie I have a confession to make: my nine year old daughter is still a thumb-sucker. I know, it is a shocking revelation. Call the authorities, this woman is a terrible parent… Until recently I felt really quite guilty that I had failed to […]

Talybont Reservoir & Blaen Y Glyn Waterfalls

We had a great walk the other Sunday, around and about Talybont-on-Usk. We had the intention of finding some waterfalls, but failed somewhat in our planning. Luckily, we called in on some friends who live nearby who chaperoned us. We stopped off at Talybont Reservior, which […]

Review: Little Greene Paint Co.

Review: Little Greene Paint Co.

Review: Little Greene Paint Company The lovely people at Little Greene Paint Company recently sent me a couple of tins of their paint to review. We’ve only just recently moved into our flat, and are still deciding whether or not to stay, but I couldn’t pass […]

Hospital Bag “Essentials”

Hospital Bag “Essentials”

So I thought it'd be cute to write a little 'Top Picks' post for hospital bag essentials. As most of you have probably gathered, I'm pregnant again, and all though I've done this twice all ready I'm still a little hazy on what the hell […]
