Looking after me…update 2

me and cake

Ok so I’m going to tell you straight off the bat (the photo is kind of a dead giveaway) I have cheated a little this month. The gloss and enthusiasm of the first four weeks of a new eating and exercise plan had worn off and I felt like rebelling. Who was Michelle Bridges to tell me what to eat? … Read More

Why I suck at craft

craft

In my head I’m a cross between Noni from Play School and Lorelai Gilmore from The Gilmore Girls. De.lu.sion.al Yep. The reality is so far from that it’s not funny. Each day I start groggy from a severe lack of sleep thanks to either the toddler who has taken to getting out of his bed and creeping the halls at … Read More

How to get your toddler talking

toddler talking

  It seems that in the blink of an eye your baby will progress from a gurgling, babbling bundle… to a vehement pointer, communicating their needs with single (loud) word demands for “more” or “juice”… to a UN level negotiator, using full (if irrational) sentences such as “I can’t put my shoes on Mummy because my hair hurts”.  During this … Read More

Hidden veggie rolls

I don’t know about you, but I have a HARD time getting vegies into my kids! My oldest only likes cucumber and my youngest is a potato fan, but apart from that I have zero success. The other day I was flicking through an old cookbook that I bought when Gus was a baby and stumbled across this recipe…turns out … Read More

Let’s talk pelvic floors

pelvic floor

The other day I paid my local women’s physio a little visit. You see, after three babies in 3.5 years, and my last being a little under 9 pounds, my old trusty pelvic floor has taken quite the battering. It’s not in bad knick, I don’t want to sell it short, but after recently taking up running again after years, … Read More

Shiatsu…and how it can help you!

I was lucky enough to meet Marian Jarvis through a mutual friend. I knew nothing about Shiatsu before Marian came to my house to give me a treatment, and afterwards, well I was a convert!   So, here’s what you need to know….   Firstly, Marian, tell us about about you… Natural therapies have always been a part of my … Read More

Dear first time mum…

erin and eddie

Dear first time mum,                           I see you, bleary eyed and sleep deprived in the shopping aisle, agonising over whether to buy the organic baby food or the regular brand. I see you in the cafe trying to breast feed your babe without flashing your entire body, your … Read More
