I DO like… – wot so funee?

As usual, this is the week’s round up of comedy moments brought about by toddler language. I love writing these posts, they always make me laugh remembering the moments that I noted down in the week… Although Andrew is generally a good eater and will try most things, he has recently decided that certain vegetables are no-go. He can usually

The making of a superhero (or 2)

This week, as well as Joel’s first birthday, has included the 31st October. Now to lots of people that means Halloween, but we’re not into celebrating something that originated in dark things, even though these days it’s just a vastly over commercialised festival that most people take part in without any intention of deliberately celebrating evil. Instead we like to join

The essential baby kit list

A friend of mine who is expecting her first baby in April recently suggested that I could write a blog post about what I think you really need (as opposed to what the shops and media tell you that you need) when you have a baby. I agree that this sounds like a great idea for a post, and I’m

Andrew models the ‘me&i’ spiky body top (review)

Although I hope I don’t go into labour for at least another month, it can’t harm to have things organised well in advance of when the time comes. Tom has been asking me

Pregnancy diary: week 32 – “you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139)

This week I’ve been thinking about knitting. It’s not me who’s been doing the knitting – I fear it would take me longer than a 9 month pregnancy to knit even one item of newborn clothing, having not done any since I was a child and having little time for craft these days. Recently we were very kindly given two

Pregnancy diary: week 20 – scanning for anomalies but not blue-/pink-ness

Believe it or not (I can’t quite believe it really) this week is half-way through this pregnancy already! Where is time flying to?! I suppose the first half is in practice shorter than 20 weeks, because (if baby is conceived naturally) you’re already some weeks pregnant when you’re first aware that you’re pregnant: a test shows up positive or you
