Motivate the goblin lady!

I have very poor excuses, I feel like the weather is taking its toll on me already and its only the very end of September! That and I also have started a new job, which although is nowhere near as physically demanding as my previous job, it is still quite different and is therefore taking…

Parenthood: Keeping your dog happy after having a baby.

One of the main topics I noticed while browsing parenting forums, whilst pregnant, and whilst having a new-born baby, was in regards to dogs. Before you have a baby, if you have a dog, you are used to giving them a lot of attention and often you don’t have to think about anything else. This…

A week in Ericeira, Portugal, camping with a baby.

Our destination all along had been Ericeira, surf capital of Europe. It is an incredibly surf orientated place, which before going I was not aware of. This was quite intriguing for us ladies as there were a lot of surfers, nice looking surfers. Ericeira is not what I expected from Portugal, it was far more…

What is normal for… breastfeeding? part 3.

Breastfeeding, the biggest love hate relationship I have ever had in my life, period. So I thought I would pull together a list of pros and cons; a little continuation of my breastfeeding experience. I have discussed my breastfeeding journey before, but only the beginning, there is so much more. It is so much easier…

Why you should go on a driving holiday.

This week I will be discussing the final drive to Ericeira (before we started heading back), and reasons why you should do a driving holiday, gulp, with children. I often get asked: why do you drive for your holiday? What are the benefits? Are you mad? Among many other things. I mean why would you…

Traveling through central Spain and Portugal with a baby.

It was an early start. I don’t mind early starts when camping, to be honest, as it get too hot to stay in the tent after a while; although the day didn’t appear as hot as it had been. We only stayed on the campsite at Burgos one night, it was a very nice night,…

Dear impressive squash’s from Aldi.

So, since October 31st I have felt a little brooding. I didn’t ‘take part’ in Halloween this year. I have recently started exploring the world of twitter, and social media in general; before this past month I hadn’t really stepped into social media to such an extent, so its been a little overwhelming. I think…

Traveling through Spain with a baby.

We set off very early Sunday morning, I was still trying very hard to drink my coffee. It was imperative we set off early in the morning; the traffic around the Bordeaux ring road is always busy at a weekend as people like to travel either north or south for the weekend (or for the…

What is normal for… getting healthy after having a baby?

Pregnancy, breastfeeding and the post natal period, put a huge strain on you body; so before you think i’m going to go on about how you should eat kale for breakfast, i’m not. I hate kale, I try to convince myself I like it (even sneaking it into smoothies) but I don’t it tastes like…

Traveling through Southern France with a Baby.

After the rush down to Abbeville, we had a really early night. Our goal was to reach our friends who live in Jussas; a small village situated between Bordeaux and Royan. We passed a lot of places I won’t mention in detail, but if you get a chance to visit them I would suggest: La…
