So. I haven’t really been bothered by my baby flab so far. It’ only been four and a half weeks, and from initially 17 kilos more on the scales, I am already down to a mere seven kilos maternal surplus. Partly thanks to breastfeeding, but mostly down to losing my appetite and being too tired […]
You unmistakably are a new mum if…
Our newest family member has arrived last Wednesday. The birth was an amazing experience (more on that later), and I arrived home on a high on Saturday.
Can you read the look on my face? It says ‘I’ve had enough’. I am 38 weeks and three days today and only a few days away from my planned C-section. Amazing to think that my last pregnancy was exactly four weeks longer than this one – and that it didn’t really bother me back […]
One of the many nice things of having girls is being able to dress them up nicely. Luckily, little L is very much into dresses and cute stuff, i.e. I have a willing victim to try any sartorial ideas on.

And that’s where the problem lay. Don’t laugh. If you were carrying what feels like a watermelon between your legs – a […]
If you find yourself in a bit of a kitchen rut, I warmly recommend checking out the courses at La Cucina Caldesi cooking school in London’s Marylebone. Big M and I had been given course vouchers as a Christmas present last year, but have only now got round to using them.
Last night I dreamed that we had a burglary. Funnily enough, all the robbers seemed to be keen on was baby clothes. Plus the car seat, the cot, the breast pump and the baby monitor. To say I am slightly panicky about the prospect of having another child is an understatement. It’s not so much […]
