I’ve been AWOL from here for a while, small kids, very busy blah blah blah, but if one thing was going to get me back to the blog it would be shoddy journalism about C-sections. So, thank you The Telegraph, you’ve got me back in the saddle:Here’s the story: “Caesarian rates support ‘too posh to push’… Continue reading I’m Too Posh to Push – The Telegraph has Proof!
I should really have managed to post a whole lot more on here as I’ve now been on maternity leave for four weeks but the time seems to have been eaten up by three things: A husband and toddler with a vomiting bugAn unexpectedly large list of baby things to buy and organiseFriends and family The… Continue reading Friends – Thank You
To be honest I feel rather lucky that we’ve made it almost to E’s 3rd birthday with only one dash to A&E, so I guess we were probably due another one on Tuesday when poor E was running along in front of me and suddenly, for no apparent reason, fell on her head.

Charitable Thoughts Since deciding to pin on my TFL Baby On Board badge I’ve been interested to see if it actually works – so far I’ve got a seat most days, although not because someone has offered me one.

It’s the curse of the working mother – childcare. Quite apart from the costs, there is always that little nagging doubt about what your child is up to all day and how well they are being cared for. I’m reasonably confident about E’s nursery, she seems to enjoy it and although it’s hard to get… Continue reading How to Worry a Working Mum
Adventures were needed yesterday! Last week we were stuck indoors for the whole of Monday, but with gorgeous winter sunshine and a strong desire to avoid that much mess* again it was time for an outing. There are lots of good places to explore with a toddler in South London and one of our favourite… Continue reading The Horniman Museum
Had anyone in the UK spotted that it snowed at the weekend? Obviously no one has really mentioned it, what with us Brits being so famously disinterested in our weather and all, so for the benefit of those overseas or with their head in a thermal bin bag, here are is a blog post and… Continue reading The Inevitable Snow Pictures Post
