Mummy says…

I have had four babies, my first when I was twenty five, my last when I was forty one! Post pregnancy fitness and diet was on my mind following each birth, and was tricky to maintain for one reason or another. When I was younger I think I physical recovery was easier, except after my first baby who was born by emergency  c-section. My diet did improve every time I weaned one of  my babies onto ‘our’ food, as I tended to make more home made food for them – and the rest of my family. I have always walked more with each new baby, there is nothing quite like walking along pushing your gorgeous new pram with your little bundle of joy snuggled up inside!

Keeping warm this winter

Well, I don’t know about where you live but we have had the most horrendous weather in the last few days. A big storm hit the country and whilst we didn’t lose power we have had gale force biting winds. The temperature has plummeted, and the heating turned up. But like any family, we are aware of the cost of keeping warm this winter.

Keep Calm, I am only a Threenager

I hope you had a good weekend, we did, despite the awful weather yesterday. I have a confession. I behaved terribly yesterday, and Mummy was very cross with me. I behaved like a typical threenager.

Five Great Parks in London

We are excited to be visiting London later this month again. Lea is hoping to go to University here in a couple of years and absolutely loves it. Vibrant, buzzing and oozing diversity, London is a truly great place to be a student. A melting-pot of different cultures and the focal-point of the UK’s cultural heritage, this amazing city offers opportunities like no other city on Earth. From picking up a bargain at the eclectic Camden market, to catching her favourite band playing at the Roundhouse, she’ll never be short of something to do – she will wonder where her studies are going to fit in! Lea is actually seeing Marina and The Diamonds at the Roundhouse when we visit. London offers some of the world’s most beautiful parks to take a stroll, relax or catch up on a bit of recommended reading! Here is our guide to five great parks in London.
