A friend of mine recently asked me if I was sleeping with a wedge. I assume he meant one of those funnily shaped pillows you clamp between your knees in a desperate attempt to get a little more comfortable at night. But as soon as he had uttered the words, my personal little Kopfkino had […]
Blooming? Ha. If only. I am counting down the days till c-date. I have to mainly stay away from my computer, as my lower back pulls mercilessly on the muscles in my neck and sends shooting pains into my head… Boring stuff, I know. My nesting instinct evolves mainly around the kitchen at the moment, […]
I am knackered. In fact, I am so majorly knackered that I managed to miss Vogue’s Fashion Night Out despite being ON Bond Street last Thursday. I had been about two hours early. 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 […]
Cassie Young. Congratulations! I’ll be in touch to ask for your address soon.
There is not much a pregnant lady can do to be truly fashionable – at least not when you are, like me, four weeks away from giving birth and literally bursting out of all seams. However, one thing that won’t go amiss (and would make a brilliant baby shower / push present *hint hint*) is […]
We found out on Tuesday that placenta previa is no longer the case, i.e. baby girl is allowed to cook a little longer than the initially assumed 37 weeks. In fact, we have got a date for her birth, which feels reassuring and weird at the same time. Baby Pea will be born at just […]
I just came back from my very first and very brilliant pregnancy photo shoot with Julia Boggio. To work with Julia was fun and uncomplicated, in the way that she makes you feel completely at ease with yourself. And despite being convinced of never ‘doing a Demi’, I very willingly dropped my clothes as if […]
We’ve only been back for just over two weeks, yet it feels as if our month in St Tropez is nothing but a distant memory. Between getting the last bits around the house done (remember, I used to live on a building site not too long ago), clearing out the new nursery (it’s our private […]
