Oktoberfest 2017

Over the past few days I’ve had the pleasure of participating in The Big Five Breweries beer hope 2017 and I’ve really enjoyed it! Firstly because I do love my beer but mostly because I’ve had the chance to really open up my pallet to a number of different type of craft beers which have…

24/7

I think it’s very easy for people to undervalue, under appreciate and under estimate what a full time mum is & does. Including myself, I definitely did this when I was younger, having said that I am not talking about a mother child relationship as important as that is, I’m referring to age mates, workmates,…

Learning to let go

Letting people take Olive while i’m still in the room or in the next room is one thing, but letting them take Olive “far” away without me being there is so difficult for me for a number of reasons, like… what if she starts crying and wants her mummy and I’m not there for her?…

Money hungry

So, I’m really lucky that I have a job that’s not 9-5, in fact I don’t work every day, I’m a free lance photographer and I get to work some days and for even maybe 1 or 2 hours that day, this is great for me because I can be a full time mum as…

Milk milk go away, don’t come back another day!

Ok for those of you that may be very judgemental maybe this is not a post for you to be reading because I feel like I’ll get a lot of hate mail after this but basically over the past six months there have been times I’ve wished that maybe my milk will run out soon…

She got it from her Daddy ๐Ÿ˜

I did write on Insta and i’d like to say it again, my man & O’s daddy looks so good in a skirt!! Well…Wayne just generally looks good but hey ๐Ÿ˜ย Mama O got lucky! (Scotland, I know its a Kilt- Just a different culture and I love it)

Happy 6 Months O

6 MONTHS OLD. MY BABY IS 6 MONTHS OLD!!!!! Half a freaking year! How did we even get here?! It was not long once Wayne and I started dating that we learned we were pregnant. Unplanned and without plans we were confounded. Our whole lives changed in the blink of an eyeโ€ฆwell a slow progressive…

He’s Back!!๐Ÿ’›

So my boyfriend is back from the UK after 5 whole weeks!! I got misled because I was told it would be one month, this past month was 5 weeks!! I couldn’t be more excited that he’s back! He was away for training for his new job, I have missed him terribly and I’m so…

Sickness scare ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The night before Last was a bit of a scary one for me, it only lasted for an hour before family came rushing to my aid as usual, but let me tell you, that one hour was not pleasant; You see, that night I felt really really sick. I had a horrible bad tummy ache…

Does it matter if your black or white?

What do you think about your kids being exposed to programmes or books or what have you with the characters being only one race? I found myself watching some baby TV a few minutes ago as we make our way to swim, this is maybe the 4th time I’ve put on this particular video from…

Chatty Cathy

Olive has been making sounds for a whole now trying to talk, but on Saturday she woke up and just could not stop chatting, saying words like “dada” and such, of course just baby talk but talk nonetheless, GUYSSSS MY BABY TALKS NOW!!! This is so amazing and I’m so excited for this development- its…

New toys ๐Ÿ™Œ

We bought this play mat at Carrefour last night at a really affordable price and I’m already so happy with it! It keeps O engaged and motivates her to use her arms and get more coordinated ๐Ÿ’ช
