The best autumn/winter baby girls’ clothes 2017

The best autumn/winter baby girls’ clothes 2017

It’s been a while since I last wrote about what clothes are in the shops for babies. 5 months, in fact, eek! However, there are so many beautiful baby clothes coming into the shops for autumn and winter that I had to rectify this shortcoming! Baby style is something that I seem to be paying increasing amounts of attention to. Those who follow me on Twitter will know that while I’ve always liked Frugi, I have become a little obsessive recently! Oops – sorry hubby!

If I had unlimited amounts of money, I think I would just go nuts and spend hundreds of pounds on Autumn’s clothing. The sad truth is that I can’t, as I’m struggling having not had a proper income for the last few months! However, that’s the price I’ve paid for spending as much time at home with my baby as possible before I return to work. However, there are ways of getting around it. View Post

Tudor falconry at Dover Castle

Tudor falconry at Dover Castle

On Saturday (9th September), Dave and I decided we’d visit Dover Castle with Autumn. Birds of prey, particularly owls, are one of my many interests. As such, I really wanted to go and watch their historic falconry displays. Whilst I’ve watched several displays before, this one is different as it looks at the historic elements of falconry. In this case, the focus was Tudor falconry. View Post

Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Charity

Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Charity

Less than a year ago, I had a seriously ill child. I know first hand just how awful it is to be in that situation as a parent. You just feel so helpless. In many ways, I expect it’s worse when your child is older and actually aware of everything that’s going on.

I’d like to bring your attention to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and the amazing work that they do. They care for over 270,000 young people and their families each year, as well as carrying out important research. This research includes children’s medicines, infection, inflammation and oncology.

Autumn’s Christening and how I planned it

Autumn’s Christening and how I planned it

On the first Sunday of August, we finally had Autumn christened! When I was pregnant, I thought I’d have her christening in the first 6 months. However, if you’ve been following our story, you’ll know that things didn’t quite go as we thought they would in the first few weeks of Autumn’s life. It took a long time for me to recover, so the stress of a social event was not something that was on the cards for quite some time.

However, in her 10th month, the time finally came. I had so much fun planning it all, although it was quite stressful! I planned it all in the space of about two weeks. I’m usually far more organised than that, but after a bereavement last month, the christening kind of sneaked up on us. View Post
