I find the most difficult aspect of travelling with a baby is packing! Knowing what to pack for a 5 week holiday is not easy, and when JJ's luggage allowance is 10 kg it is quite unrealistic as well. Between the 3 of us we were allowed 50 kg and for once we were only 4 kg … Continue reading Travelling to the Faroe Islands
When I was 7 years old years old my sister and I got the most wonderful present we could wish for, a baby brother! We absolutely adored him and still do. We like to think that we have taught him a thing or two about life and are partly to blame for him turning out … Continue reading Mamba is visiting
Do you remember when you thought that a thirty something person was OLD! I do. My 30th was on the 27th of March which was also Easter Sunday. James had asked me a few times what I wanted to do for my birthday and all I really wanted to do was to have a lovely … Continue reading The Big Three Oh!
Being pregnant with JJ was a beautiful experience. Like most mothers to be I spent a lot of time thinking about what this little human growing inside me would be like. First of all, was it a boy or a girl. What would make him/her smile, would he/she be healthy, would he/she like books, would he/she have … Continue reading 9 months in and 9 months out

A mother is something absolutely new. - Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh Giving birth to JJ was a bit like being born again myself. Everything after he was born was a new first, there was the first … Continue reading A mother is something absolutely new
Our due date was the 16th of May 2015. I don't think that I have ever been as excited about anything as I was about giving birth and becoming a mamma. You might find it strange, that I was excited about something that was likely to hurt like nothing else before, the truth is that … Continue reading James’ Birthstory
Today social media reminded me that it is 2 years since James had a status saying "planning with Iris when we should have kids, just so that they don't have their birthday in the summer holidays! Oh me..." - about 7 months later on the 11th of September 2014 we found out that we were expecting … Continue reading Yummy yummy I’ve got love in my tummy
