Exploring Sintra in Lisboa, Portugal, with a baby.

When we weren’t at our base of Ericeira, we were traveling around the area of Lisboa in Portugal. Lisbon being the main attraction, or at least the attraction that most people think of. I fully recommend exploring Portugal, there are loads of package holidays to Portugal (mainly in the Algarve and Madeira) and maybe people…

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…

A forever Asleep Parakeet.

Last Friday I went back to work for the first time, it was a KIT day, i’m not done on my maternity leave yet; I have mixed feelings about that particular subject. I generally get up early every morning now (early for me being seven-AM, I know, I am lucky) on the odd occasion I…

What is Normal For… a Miscarriage? part four.

This is a continuation of me sharing my thoughts from back when I first lost my son Kai at eighteen weeks pregnant, if you do not want to read about this because it will upset you, don’t worry that is absolutely fine. It didn’t take very long for me to lose energy for a blog,…

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…
