Swings and roundabouts

Do you ever feel like a hamster on a treadmill? Sometimes it feels like I’m clinging on by the tips of my fingers shouting ‘stoooop!’ But on the plus side we’re off on holiday soon, which means I get to go and be grumpy in a nice warm climate. And Florence is now standing; yikes and amazing in equal measures.

Did you know Miffy is 60 this weekend? She hides it well, doesn’t she, as I don’t yet think bunny botox is a thing. A huge childhood favourite of mine, it’s a love I’ve passed down to my own children. Read more about Miffy here, and also win a Miffy book bundle (and there’s still time to enter here to win a handyman to take care of all your baby-related house jobs)

Thanks for all the Judy Blume love on this post! It seems that everyone had an early teen-dom cemented by Forever, and Deanie, and Tiger Eyes…just don’t mention Ralph.

A blog I discovered when I was pregnant is Roasted Montreal, written by the lovely Michelle who was also pregnant at the time. She’s been running a series of posts on travelling with toddlers, and I was pretty honoured to talk about my top tips for London with children if you’re looking for any ideas.

I’ll stop talking about this soon, honestly, but there’s about a week left to go to vote in the MAD Blog Awards (we’re nominated for Best Pregnancy Blog). Here’s nine things about my blog and pregnancy and if you’d like to vote you can do so here.

Have a great weekend…x
