• Crystal Palace Overground Festival 2012

    June 20, 2012

    Last weekend was the Crystal Palace Overground Festival, an annual event which takes place in Westow Park and various places around the CP Triangle. It’s been running for a couple of years now, but this was the first time we’ve not been away while it was on. It’s fair to say that Glastonbury 1998 put…

    April 14, 2012

    We’re just back from our Easter break in Bournemouth, which was Eliza’s first trip out of London (she slept through the night twice – it must have been the sea air as she’s not repeated it since). However, the week before saw a visit from my friend Nick – eagle-eyed readers of this blog may…

    January 7, 2012

    One of the mums-to-be from our NCT group sent round a link to a video that’s a guide to the maternity services at King’s College Hospital – where we’ll all be giving birth shortly – that explains all about the labour and birth facilites there. The video covers a variety of topics including having your…
