• A brilliant blog comment from Bosch UK

    December 19, 2012

    How great is this comment left by Bosch UK on one of my old blog posts? Firstly, they’ve taken the time to write me a poem, I love it! Secondly it makes reference to, among a multitude of other things: my pre-baby blog, the fact we don’t drive in London, Eliza starting to talk, and our…

  • Friday festive link round-up

    December 7, 2012

    Although last weekend was a bit of a write-off, we did briefly nip to Oxford Street for some Christmas shopping, so saw all the lights and displays in full, albeit daytime, glory. The Selfridges windows in the middle photo are definitely the best – don’t you think? – but we also loved the John Lewis decorations on the…

  • Baby, it’s cold outside…

    December 5, 2012

    …it’s also cold inside, despite having had the heating on all day (that’s Victorian conversions for you – when we lived in a new build in Balham we had the heating on about three times in two years). It has been sickness central over here, with all three of us suffering from various ailments –…

  • We love the Carnaby Street Christmas lights

Previous Carnaby ones have included giant marshmallow snowmen and hanging astronaut Santas, and this year they didn’t disappoint; there’s a Rolling Stone…

We were actually going to go to The Baby…

  • Baby proof: how do we make our flat child-friendly?

    October 12, 2012

    Having spent much of the last week retrieving an increasingly mobile baby from lurching towards the fireplace, TV unit and the underneath of our chairs, Alex and I recently closed ranks and launched operation baby-proof the flat. We had to step it up a pace this week when she learned to crawl forwards – not…

  • Would you use a ‘baby on board’ badge in your car?

    October 11, 2012

    As I’ve mentioned before, we don’t have a car, so are currently at the mercy of public transport with a pram. Both Alex and I do have licences though, albeit very dusty ones, so we’ll probably think about getting a car in the next few years (I’m not even entertaining the idea of tube steps…
