The first thing I saw was a bloody hand print

Nose bleed diariesBB’s had one of her nose bleeds. Again. They always happen at night and are usually discovered when one of us checks on her before we go to bed. It’s always a shock – once again there was blood everywhere: all over her face, the pillow and the sheets, and this time there was even an eerie hand print for good measure (pictured).

I’ve declared war on spam

Email spamI’ve been having a declutter of the virtual style. The sheer number of unsolicited advertising/newsletter/offer emails and spam that lands in my inbox each day has reached such epic proportions that I’ve lost track of how long I spend automatically deleting them, and I’ve declared war on them instead.

I swear he’s more awake than he lets on, and he swears he isn’t

Broken nights 2This is a short rant about sleep (or lack of). Last night I was up no less than six times with Little B in the space of seven hours. That’s basically once an hour.

Who needs a mummy anywayI’ve gone and done it: I’ve bought my ticket for BritMums Live (we’ve got a lovely shiny badge on the right hand side of the page to prove it) and I’m just a teeny tiny bit scared. 

It’s the UK’s biggest two day conference and social media event for bloggers, and having never been to anything like this before it’s a rather daunting prospect. Continue reading

Ella’s Kitchen finger food review: let weaning commence!

Baby led weaning 5Just when you’ve settled nicely into a routine, it’s time to change it again and get used to a new one. After six months of exclusive breast feeding it’s time to start weaning Little B, and I’m not sure I’m ready. Mainly due to the constant wiping.

As with BB we’re opting for baby led weaning, which for those of you in dark means Little B is given whole pieces of food or a loaded spoon to feed himself, and is the opposite of parent led weaning, ie me shovelling puree into his mouth on a spoon. Continue reading
