Baby’s First Cold

September 15, 2016

Baby’s First Cold – there doesn’t seem to be a milestone card for that! Possibly because we want to forget that it ever happened? We all know how rubbish it is to have a cold as an adult, but goodness me, I never realised I could actually feel worse about another human being having one!

A Year of Pondering Parenthood

September 5, 2016

Wow. WordPress informs me that it’s been a whole year since I started this blog. I’d better apologise from the off; most bloggers seem to have some kind of exciting giveaway or at least a personalised iced cake to celebrate their first birthday. My poor sense of planning negates all that so if it’s the freebies you’re after, I’m afraid you’ve come to the wrong…
