We went to Giovanni Fletcher’s book signing in Canterbury

If you don’t know much about Giovanna, she grew up in Essex with her Italian dad Mario, mum Kim, big sister Giorgina and little brother Mario (he was on TOWIE), and with family playing such a big part of her life it was only natural that she had always dreamed of having children of her…

Babies with piercings, thoughts?

I know a few people, who decided that their baby, at a young age should and did get their child’s ear pierced. Some people scream it’s child abuse, others think it’s just wrong and others refuse to comment. Thing is whatever you agree with, it’s not your body to mess with to start piercing holes…

What’s happening to the NHS dentists in Kent?

Sam visited his dentist last week for a check up and was told that his surgery and it’s sister surgery was closing in a Ramsgate, leaving 16k patients desperately trying to find a new one. Hundreds of people have expressed their concern over finding a new dentist in posts I’ve seen shared online as Sam’s…

Emily’s teeth are really starting to come through 

For the past few weeks, a Emily has been a little up and down, again. As if this time of year doesn’t already bring the sniffly, snotty noses that all parents and their little ones need just in time for Christmas, teething and growing pains also love to jump in whenever they have a chance…

Emily has upped her eating game 

After a successful few months weaning her from 4 months old, Emily took little interest in food when her first teeth started coming through about 6 months. Don’t get me wrong she showed interest in some things, liked others, enjoyed her yoghurts, fruit purees and snacks but beyond that, she wasn’t interested. Whilst her friends…

Feed your child how you want, boob or bottle, mother knows best.  

There’s a lot of talk in the press at the moment that women who breastfeeding are slowly dying out, becoming such a rarity that it could stop all together. I don’t breastfeed Emily, but before you pass the judgement book, I stopped because I developed thrush and fuck me it was painful. Emily wasn’t getting…

Emily had her 10 month review last week 

My little baby is 10 months old. Crazy how time is flying. Last week Tuesday Emily had her 10 month review with the health visitor at our local children’s centre. It’s great to see how much she has grown in her little life. She’s crawling, pulling herself up, desperately trying to walk as she can…

The super slim diet- a kinda review 

Throughout the past 8 months losing weight has been at the forefront of my mind. I need to lose weight, even though there really hasn’t been much of a rush apart from our oncoming holiday in September, besides that Sam says I don’t need to rush and well, I don’t but society, the press and…

Choosing contraception after birth

So, I’ve just had to change my contraception after a bit of a reaction to my pill. Pretty sure 2 periods in a month, bloating, weight gain, bad skin and tummy cramps that make you vomit are not a sure sign that your pill intake is going swimmingly. After Emily was born, I was put…

Losing my pregnancy weight 

Losing pregnancy weight isn’t easy. It’s pretty dam tough. Any mother who gained weight during pregnancy will agree than it’s tough to lose weight quickly unless of course you’re some celeb that has the on-tap fitness trainers to kick you up your arse before you go back into the spotlight again. Since Emily was born,…

Did you suffer from Scanxiety?

When I was pregnant I had about 8 scans, all through the NHS, none of them paid as extra services like some people do. But even though I didn’t pay for scans as extra services that I needed, I still had what’s known as Scanxiety. The phenomenon is dubbed ‘Scanxiety’, with 36 per cent of…

Blisters suck 

It’s that time of the year again when we get our tootsies out, expose the old pasty feet and put on our sandals. I’m not one, usually, for wearing sandals, I’m normally dying in a pair of converse or trainers, but I decided to buy myself a pair of Birkenstocks. So comfy these sandals, hugging…
