Less than one week till Chriiiiiiistmaaaaaas! I would not normally be this excited, but I’ve pretty much completed all my shopping, thanks to the internet gods, and wrapped most of it, so I can just crank up the tunes and eat several mince pies/cheese/festive treats without stressing about having to go to Oxford Street or… Continue reading Blogmas – day 20!
Whoops. I got so caught up in the festive spirit that blogging fell off my radar! Plus Cece has been on the mother of all growth spurts (crying, no sleeping, constant feeding, it’s JOYOUS). But now she’s finally having a nap (and not on me!) I’m back in the game! Phew. So what’s been going… Continue reading Blogmas – days 12 to 17 (oops)
Damn it is COLD! And there’s not even settled snow to show for it any more – although let’s face it, it’s not likely to happen in London. I wish I’d had the foresight to stock the fridge full of tasty goodness so I didn’t have to go anywhere…as it is, I’ll either be forced… Continue reading Blogmas – days 10 & 11!
Oh dear, I missed a Blogmas post! But with good reason – I got very overexcited about going to my work Christmas party! I’ve been out for a couple of dinners post-Cece, but this was my first night “out-out”. I was a little bit concerned about heading all the way up to Enfield (not exactly… Continue reading Blogmas – days 8 & 9
Evening all! I don’t know about you but it’s been a bit of a hibernation day for us here. I think the effects of Storm Caroline hit London around lunchtime today, and when I looked out of the window and saw sideways torrential rain…I channelled my inner cat and determined to stay curled up on… Continue reading Blogmas – day 7!
Evening all! I hope you had a good day (maybe listening to some Christmas songs?). We had a very sociable day catching up with friends, both little and not-so-little! This was after a slightly stuttering start, since Cece has now decided that it’s unacceptable for me to leave the room. Not even to put on… Continue reading Blogmas – day 6!
Bit of a late one today, I’m afraid. This will teach me to write the post as soon as the house is quiet, instead of making evening plans that get shot to sunshine when the shit hits the fan! Or, rather, the nappy. Never mind. Cece has slept a phenomenal amount today. I took the… Continue reading Blogmas – day 5!
Hello all! I hope you all had a good Monday (as good as can be expected for a Monday anyway). Cece’s second round jabs did not go as horrifically as I had first thought – there were fewer needles and she takes most things in her stride. In fact, she cried more at being put… Continue reading Blogmas – day 4!
Ohhh, there’s nothing like getting out of the city for a couple of days to reset your system. We’ve had a lovely weekend down in Kent with our old friends! Although Cece decided to have a midnight party by “eeeeeeee-ing” LOUDLY after everyone had gone to bed (she has shown me that it’s possible to… Continue reading Blogmas – day 3!
Whew, we’ve had a busy couple of weeks! I had my 31st birthday which meant lots of tasty food and fun with friends, and some new occurrences for our little family. First up: Charles And Nat Spend Time In The Pub Without Cece. We went to one of our favourite pubs, The Three Johns, for… Continue reading More milestones & deadly donkeys…
Now that it’s getting properly chilly, and Cece is amenable to leaving the house, I’m enjoying finding new places to hang out that are cosy and don’t cost a fortune. My group of NCT ladies have come up with some great suggestions of places to meet; this week, we convened in Cafe Beam up in… Continue reading Out & about – Cafe Beam, Crouch End
Wow, finding time to write this is really hard…so much harder than I thought! I need to get better at a) typing one handed and b) juggling a baby and a laptop. Also, when I do have downtime to myself, it’s usually consumed with eating and getting sucked into a Netflix wormhole. Anyway. I was going… Continue reading Opening the milk bar!
