Cool stuff for kids: Rock & Pebble Apple and Pear Houses

I never had a dollhouse growing up. Probably because I was content with making do with draping a sheet over the dining table and thus creating a cubby house for myself and my dolls/stuffed animals. But looking back it would have been nice to have a keepsake as a good quality wood doll house can […]

My monthly letters to Nyla during her first year Dear baby, It sounds like an excuse but it really did get quite busy during the silly season so I didn’t manage to write you a letter last month. I can assure you it wasn’t because I had forgotten  (I’m a second child myself so overly […]

Juggling two kids

  Photo by Sarah Deane Photography One of the most common questions I get asked is: “How are you handling two kids?”, usually after “So are you sleeping much yet?”. Trying to control every ounce of my anger (as I’m getting close to zero sleep still),  I usually ignore the first question but answer the […]

Nyla: 3 months

Dear Nyla You are actually 4 months now, but I just realised that I never wrote you your 3 month letter so here I go…very belated sorry! Your smiles have become frequent and you definitely recognise our faces. You turn your head when you hear our voices and with Lily you don’t even seem to […]
