The big move

gus and eddie

Nearly two weeks ago our little BIG family moved house. It was our third move in three years. No we don’t have ADD and we’re not gypsies. Every move has been for a reason, a sold house, a bigger house, a better house, but this time the reason was space. Not just any kind of space, but outdoor space. Those … Read More

test

For seven fleeting weeks I dreamt of you, I loved you. I told your big brothers about you. I took photos (selfies even) of me holding my positive pregnancy test (all six of them), proud, excited, so so so happy.

After all the around the clock feeding/burping/changing routine of a newborn … Read More

A beautiful, healthy, delicious little boy called Arlo.   My days and nights are currently being consumed by filling up my bebe’s constantly ravenous tummy, sculling multiple cups of coffee to keep my lids open and ensuring my nearly 3 year old is still feeling the love.   My world is very … Read More

A real pain in the boob

bra

I am currently sitting outside topless…. It’s not what you think….unless your thoughts have turned directly to nipple thrush, and in the case you are a mind reading genius! You see I’ve been battling this bitch for weeks now. It all started after my two delightful bouts of mastitis which resulted in back to back heavy duty courses of antibiotics. … Read More
