    Win Tickets to The Baby Show – at the NEC Birmingham 2015

    One thing I wish I’d done more of when I was pregnant was get more exercise… Na, just kidding. I wish I’d scored more freebies! I was crap at collecting my Bounty packs and didn’t bother going to any baby events which I massively regret now. Baby shows are great for checking out all the must …

    My Struggle With Breastfeeding – When is Enough, Enough?

    I’ve blogged over on the BabyCentre recently about my struggle with breastfeeding. I’ve since come to realise that my supply has decreased. It’s not enough to feed my little man and it breaks my heart. He wriggles and squirms and pulls himself off and latches on again repeatedly screaming in frustration throughout. I’ve tried upping …

    And so to bed we go… with a Gro-hush!

    Pre-pregnancy I was a total gadget and tech nut. Modern technology never fails to amaze and delight me (and occasionally scare me too!) It came as no surprise then that one of the things I became a little obsessed with is all of the spangly pregnancy and baby gadgets on offer. I know from my …

    Protein in Pregnancy – Are you Getting Enough?

    Something I have been really struggling to get into my system with this pregnancy is protein. It’s something that I usually struggle to get in to my diet anyway due to Mr Scissors being a vegetarian (and a fussy one at that) but whilst I’ve been pregnant especially the last thing I have wanted to …

    Homemade Booze – Blackberry Vodka, Sloe Gin, Strawberry Bon Bon Vodka

    Please forgive me dear readers for I am about to get a bit Christmassy on your asses! I used to struggle each year with what to get for our extended family. Between me and the boy we have lots of brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles to sort presents for and it gets both …

    Tête-à-Tête at Terre à Terre – Brighton Restaurant Review

    I was going to add this at the end of my Wittering post yesterday but I decided that it was so mind-blowingly incredible that it deserved it’s own post entirely. We were hoping to have a meal out with the in-laws on Monday evening in Wittering before we headed home. Unfortunately most of the pubs …

    38 Week Pregnancy Photographs – Just a Little Bit Soppy

    Something you will rarely see is a sensible photograph of me. I am the least photogenic person of everyone I have never known and this translates into me NEVER letting people point a camera at me. My OH is also the least “couply” man in the world and doesn’t even like me posting photo’s of …

    Singleton Christmas Fair in Pictures

    I’ve been total pants at blogging lately. To be honest I’ve been a bit of a miserable bitch, but I won’t bore you with the details. So at the weekend I decided it was time for some cheering up. As you may know from my Bentley Woodfair posts (here & here) I love a good …

    Seaside Sparkles – Eastbourne Fireworks in Images

    I love Fireworks. Really. I REALLY love Fireworks. As soon as the first leaves start to drop, I get a bit twitchy. At some point I will walk into a shop and buy a hat, gloves and a scarf. Sometimes I don’t even realise I’ve done it. But there they are, all snuggly and warm …

    My Birth Story – Everything That Could Go Wrong Will Probably Go Wrong

    I’ve been very absent from this blog for the past couple of months. I’ll readily admit that I’ve been struggling to come to terms with my life as a new mum and definitely haven’t mastered the time management involved yet. In fact I still spend most of my time in my dressing gown on the …
