Coming Soon!

The blog has been pretty neglected recently, what with moving, settling, working and parenting. Plus, you know, sleep!

But I do have a few things coming soon.

I’ve been testing a new hand wash from Dettol, with e45. So there will be a review coming soon for that.

Little Duck and I have also been testing a new cream from Oilatum Junior. So there’s a review coming for that as well.

I’ve also got some new designs of bottles coming from Tommee Tippee UK to try out. So stay tuned for that post too!

But for now, I’m taking a well deserved break, and spending a girly weekend with some mummy friends.
Little Duck is spending the weekend doing Daddy/Daughter things.

Have a great weekend all, I’m back in July!

Half Birthdays

I am the mother of a 6 month old.
6 MONTHS!!!

Where on earth did the last 6 months go?!

After 284 days of being pregnant, 6 months ago, The Husband and I welcomed our daughter Emma (aka Flump) into the world.

Probably the best (and most tiring day) of my life.

22 hours of labour (from start to finish), I got to snuggle with this tiny red squished looking baby that had A LOT of hair!

6 months later she still has her hair (loads of people told me it would fall out and re-grow) and she’s no longer red and squished looking.

She is now a chubby pink cheeked baby, who is crawling about and getting into mischief, full of smiles and babbling. She has The Husband wrapped around her chubby fingers and I’m not far behind.

6 months old today.

Happy half birthday Little Duck.
Mama and Daddy love you SO much!

Go Fourth and Ink

Since getting my first tattoo a few years ago, I’ve become hooked on being inked.

It takes me a while to choose my tattoos. The way I see it, I will have these tattoos for the rest I my life and I want to always love them and I want them to have meaning.

I have 3 tattoos.

I always said that I wanted a tattoo to mark the arrival and existence of my first child. A tribute to her, a piece of significant art to celebrate her.

I had so many ideas of what to have but I just couldn’t settle on what to choose.

A big part of making my decision is where my ink will go. I am very particular about the placing of my tattoos. I want to be able to show them off as well as hide them. I want them to be discreet and subtle.

I settled on it all this morning.
Now all I need to do is find the design that I’m in love with and see if my tattooist will ink me whilst I’m still nursing Little Duck.

Oh, and I need to get it costed and save the pennies.

The anticipation of my next inking session is immense.
