Considering Stem Cell Storage?

When I was pregnant I became ridiculously protective over my growing bump.  I would hold my breath if someone nearby was smoking, I would make sure I sat where possible to take the strain off my feet and I made sure I swallowed those evil Pregnacare tablets.  Everything was purely for peace of mind. During one…

So You Want To Be A YouTube Star?

Attending Blogfest this year was like going to Mummy Blogging University.  If only there was a Mummy Blogging degree I’d have had more fun doing that course than my actual University degree! One of the lectures I went to was ‘How to be a YouTube Star’ hosted by Kate Rushworth who is a You Tube…

La Queue Du Chat #FashionFriday

I’ve always enviously looked at the French as the ultimate style gurus.  They never over complicate outfits, preferring simple styles that never go out of fashion that always make an impact.  Subtlety and perfectly cut are the vital ingredients.  And when it comes to dressing their impeccably styled children, comfort and durability obviously top the…

Gun Powder, Treason and Plot

I love traditions.  And more than anything I want to implement them into my Son’s life.  There’s something innocent and old fashioned in maintaining traditions, it connects generations together and it keeps us connected to our ancestors.  Each tradition gives an exciting burst of energy at different times of the year and make the drabbest…

Mummy SOS: When Does A Baby Get Easier?

Do you know what? I never thought I’d be able to write this post.  I never thought that ‘easier’ time would ever come. I love my Son but I’m not going to bullsh*t.  Since his birth it has been hard work.  Tiredness takes its toll.  The lack of freedom takes its toll.  The new identity…

Bottle Feeding with Ease when Out

Being a Winter born baby, my Son would drink warm milk during his feeds.  Always a bit of a hassle if I’m honest in those early days, especially at night-time.  I’d have to time making the bottles to make sure they cooled to the right temperature for him to drink.  I couldn’t make them too early…

I went Online Dating

Although I’m very much in a relationship, I realise that technology has advanced and internet dating is something quite common and acceptable.  So I’ve always wanted to try it. But rather than support my desire to experience the unknown (just for the fun of it), MrLondonMum has of course been reluctant to accept that this…

Twinkle like a Star

There’s that moment in the evening when your child is asleep and all the tension you’ve been carrying around all day suddenly just evaporates.  You pull on your pyjamas, pour a glass of wine and settle down to watch ‘Orange is the New Black’ (well that’s what I’m currently watching anyway!). Being a Mum is…

Baby London is 10 Months Old

On the spectrum of all things baby, 10 months is pretty old!  It won’t be long before I can officially call him a toddler… where has my little baby gone? This last month has seen Baby London’s personality really set itself in stone.  He likes what he likes, and dislikes what he dislikes.  There’s no…
