Our first month back to swimming with Puddle Ducks East Kent

Our first month back to swimming with Puddle Ducks East Kent

It’s very nearly the first anniversary of when I first took Autumn for baby swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks East Kent. We were trying out all sorts of different groups and things at the time as I found my confidence. I thought swimming would be a fantastic bonding experience for us both. However, most of all, I thought it would be great for her. There are many health benefits to it. Amongst other things, it helps babies, toddlers and children improve their coordination and it builds their muscles. When she was younger, I also found that it tired Autumn out so much she’d have an absolutely huge nap! So, if you’re desperate for sleep, you might want to give swimming a go!

Someone enjoyed their swimming lesson and is now totally zonked 😂

Review: Zhelar Bamboo Towel & Washcloths

Review: Zhelar Bamboo Towel & Washcloths

After Autumn was born, I used normal cotton baby towels on her. They did the job and we had some absolutely beautiful towels gifted to us when she was first born. However, when I first used a bamboo towel on her, I was amazed. The material was softer and much more absorbent.

Recently, we’ve been trying out Zhelar‘s bamboo towels, as well as their washcloths. Read on to see what we thought. View Post

A letter to my daughter at 15 months

A letter to my daughter at 15 months

Dear Autumn,

We had so much festive fun together in your 14th month. You got two more teeth through, which wasn’t so much fun, but we got through those unsettled nights. The upside is you now have two more beautiful teeth to enjoy chomping your food with. The day you turned 14 months old, we were on holiday at Bluestone. As such, I didn’t use a milestone card or sticker. Frustratingly, I keep forgetting to use them. Although, I’m unsure whether they stopped at 12 months. I’ll try to do better next month…although you’d probably just instantly peel a sticker off and present it to me!  View Post

26 years and 26 goals

26 years and 26 goals

Last week, I celebrated my 26th birthday. I can’t believe that this year, my husband and I have been together for a whole decade! I’m also very scared of how close I’m getting to the big three-oh. It feels like time has just flown terrifyingly fast since I left school.

Anyway, it seems like a good time to set some goals for the following year. So, why not do that cliché blogger thing and think of 26 as that’s how many years I’ve been on the planet? View Post
