• 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…

    October 7, 2012

    As I’ve mentioned, teething = bad, and after a pretty testy night we were all feeling a bit tired and irritable today. The best solution for dealing with this, we’ve found, is to just get out of the house, so the three of us took a walk as the West Norwood Feast was on. The…

    August 5, 2012

    Top row: Eliza with Grannie Gill and Grandad Keith. Bottom row: also with my brother Steve, and Grandma and Grandad (my mum and dad). Like a lot of people we know who live in London, Alex and I don’t live very close to most of our immediate family. I grew up in Shropshire, and after…
