• London for babies: The Science Museum

    December 16, 2012

    The Science Museum London is one of our favourite museums for babies, toddlers and children in the city: The Science Museum London was one of the most popular suggestions I was given for my London List for Babies (I’m compiling the best things to see and do in London with little children). But, I have to…

  • 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…

  • Christmas costumes for children

    November 27, 2012

    Are you dressing your baby up in a Christmas costume come the 25th December? Will they be a pudding to open presents, or a Santa to sit around the dinner table? I missed out of the opportunity to do this last year by a month. Eliza now seems just on the cusp of an acceptable…

  • We love the Carnaby Street Christmas lights

    November 23, 2012

We’re already planning possible Christmas costumes – sorry Eliza! – but it’s pretty tempting to get her one of these too. Available at Tootsa MacGinty now (we already have the bear jumper that…

  • Pregnancy week 34: managing to not have a Christmas baby

    December 29, 2011

    So, this week was Christmas! Thankfully though, there were no surprise early presents of that nature, and Baby C remains firmly suspended in-utero…hopefully for a good portion of January too. It’s funny to think it was me and Alex’s last one as a couple, as next year we’ll be three. However, this year the two…

  • Pregnancy weeks 32 & 33: brought to you with the letter C

    December 18, 2011

    According to the 32 week scan, Baby C is on the small side but has long legs. Hey there, flamingo baby! All was also fine at subsequent check-ups with midwife, blood and thyroid clinics. At the moment there’s thankfully no reason to suggest anything other than a normal delivery, although the midwife very gently told…
