As usual, I had grand plans for a million weighty and intellectual posts about, among other things, Mary Berry’s ridiculous and outdated thoughts on maternity leave (arghh! And thanks for forever ruining GBBO for me) the government’s ill-advised and quite frankly terrifying proposals on childcare (double, fearful arghh) and the baby perfume (actually, too hilariously ridiculous to consider covering, and I’m not even linking to a story). Yet as usual, I don’t have the time / inclination to actually write about any of them in the face of working, baby colds and, erm, deep decisions about the colour of frosting on birthday cakes.
So instead, here’s three completely superfluous things from this week:
Photo 1) A baby backpack – how much fun? This was Freddie’s we tried out yesterday (hi guys!) In all seriousness we do need something to take her down the hill to nursery that we can leave there. Would it be better to get something like this, a sling, or a cheaper ‘umbrella fold’ type pram we don’t have to worry about leaving in the shed? Anyone have any thoughts?
Photo 2) A little person came into contact with a big version of herself (thanks HelloCanvas, we will be reviewing soon) P.S. Eliza’s holding keys, not wine as one of my friends initially thought…
And 3) Vine love! I’m slightly obsessed with Twitter’s new six second film clip app, I think it’s all the creative possibilities of the stop motion and time-lapse. My user name is Gillian Crawshaw if you want to follow my random ‘masterpieces’ about breakfast, bricks and teabreaks so far.
And I’m not a massive fan of blogging popularity contests, but if anyone wanted to nominate us for a MAD award that would be super-lovely x.
