Going Back To Work…

I had my first KIT (Keep in Touch) day at work last Tuesday. It was the first time I’d been in a work environment since I went on annual leave/maternity leave on 15th July 2011. I honestly don’t know where the time has gone! I am officially returning to work on 23rd August but am taking my accrued annual leave and Bank Holidays so actually return to work on 1st…

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.

Father’s Day

Last Sunday was Father’s Day. There are three people in my life now who I think about on Father’s Day so I thought I would ‘write to’ each of them on here to get my feelings on paper. Dear Bio Dad, You were in my life very briefly when I was born and have only been back in my life since I was 17. The last 10 years have been…

Healthy Fruit Scones Recipe

After the popularity of my Cheese Scones post, I thought I would also share my Healthy Fruit Scones Recipe for a bit of variety, a sweet option and something else to add to the baby led weaning menu but also something that the whole family can enjoy. These fruit scones are Baby Led Weaning friendly, as the only sugar they contain is from the dried fruit in them. To mix…
