Amazing how with two little children, you easily become a couch potato, skimming through a copy of Time Out with your feet on the coffee table, not really giving a toss what the world around you has on offer. It’s a rather sad state of affairs, given that we are living in London, Metropolis and […]
Lil’ L has started school on Monday, Petite Pea has settled well into her nursery routine, and I just finished my first cup of truly hot coffee and toast in a very long time. I’d love to say I am enjoying my newly found me-time, but I am struggling.
Getting back on the workout track after having a baby can be difficult for many reasons: the English summer (makes me want to stuff my face with carbs!), a lack of workout clothes*, being too tired or just too little bothered. My favourite excuse is to have no childcare in place – nine hours of […]
