Blue & white stripes..

So my family and I are off on holiday in July to Thailand. We decided after a whole hot summer in Dubai last year and me being heavily pregnant that we were due a break somewhere that was completely new to us. The annual homage back to the UK has been postponed. We’ve made the […]

A family must do in Dubai

Think gorgeous turtles, amazing milk shakes and a gorgeous view of the beach and the Burj Al Arab. This is a must on a family to do list in Dubai, wether on holiday or as residents. We took ourselves to Black tap craft burgers & shakes at the Jumeirah Al Naseem hotel on a Friday […]

Be gentle with yourself 💜

As a mum of two small girls, a busted knee does not go down too well. When Frankie was 3 and half months I sustained painful ligament strain in the rib cage, this was caused by the weight of Frankie’s body lay across me whilst feeding during the night coupled with a persistent cough. Pregnancy […]

I’m Mumming it 🙋🏻

I’m well and truly Mumming it. By that I mean I’m responsible for two hairy but lovable Labradors and two small human girls. Up until 6 months ago, I was Mum to Lola.  A spirited and sweet five year old girl . Along came Frankie in October 2016, a perfectly formed bundle of curiosity. Being a […]
