Days Out: SeaLife Centre Brighton at Halloween!

Oh, I do love a trip to the SeaLife Centre Brighton! We’ve been meaning to take Violet for a couple of months now although had been holding on as we wanted to take her once we knew she’d actually be interested in the fish and have a bit more of an understanding on what is going on so we could all enjoy the experience. I think we timed it just right as now Violet is just about to turn 8 months (I know, WHAT!) and she absolutely loves animals of all kinds. From previous trips to the farm we’ve seen…

Tea Parties for the Elderly with the Aviva Community Fund

In association with The Aviva Community Fund 2017 There is nothing like a good cup of tea and a slice of cake to cheer a person up – of any age!

Four months down the line and I was still in my frumpy old maternity clothes…

Well, I’m probably being mean to myself as it was a picture from 2010 so thats 7 years ago now so it’s silly to compare – but looking back I almost don’t recognise myself! I was young, perfectly preened on a night out. Plus, I WAS NOT EXHAUSTED. I can’t really remember what that feels like – being a mother turns your life upside down and now we are seven months down the line, it’s hard to remember what life was like before! What did I do…

Our first holiday: Baby Skincare Essentials

I thought I was a pro at packing seeing as I was cabin crew so have packed a fair amount of suitcases, but however packing for a baby is like a completely different ball game! I think I spent more time packing for our holiday than we spent actually on holiday! 🙂 I’m so pleased we took our car as we were able to load up on all the essentials, goodness knows how we would have coped if we’d have been working to an airline luggage allowance! Whilst packing, one of the biggest struggles I had was knowing what to pack…
