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…

Boobies

Today I feel like my boobs reach my feet. I have breastfed all night long, after pumping, because I was tricked into thinking we had managed to get her to bed earlier. Last night we all got next to no sleep, thanks to the wind left behind by Ophelia. We were awake at least every…
