A Little Announcement….

I haven’t blogged in a while. Going back to work and LP breaking her leg didn’t really give me the urge to start writing again. I thought I’d wait for something worth writing about. Well, LP is going to be a Big Sister! Baby number 2 is due on the 26th May with 21 months between them. I am 13 weeks today and know the next 27 weeks will fly…

First Missed Baby Bedtime and Hen Do

So, yesterday I was on a Hen Do. It was meant to be a traditional hen do but turned into a girly day out and a nice meal in a restaurant. I fed LP before I left in the morning and made sure Daddy had instructions on everything LP needed through the day, food etc and then I left for the Hen Do. There were five of us including the…

The Path to a Decent Night’s Sleep!

Well, what better to blog about than a sleeping through baby? As you all know, LP has never been very good with long stretches of sleep, preferring to wake at best every 4 hours for food. 3 weeks ago though, that all changed. LP decided randomly one day that she would sleep through the night. When I say through, I mean through – 8pm to 9am! 13 hours! After that…

Banana Cake Recipe – Our Family Favourite

Recently I have decided that all Mums should bake. And they should bake well – obviously this is a little bit tongue in cheek. This is taking some practice and I think it will take years to perfect! But I think that I have ticked the ‘Mums must make cake’ box, even if the cakes aren’t perfect just yet! One of my favourite cakes is this Banana Cake recipe, as…
