Khyber Croydon: Restaurant Review

I’d never regarded Croydon as the go to for Indian cuisine however over the Bank Holiday me and my sister were invited to Khyber, a long established Indian restaurant founded by the Khalique family in 1978. We arrived on a Sunday evening and were immediately impressed by the crisp, clean and modern décor and the […]

Boo in a hospital gown

A Hard Week and a Shed Load of Saying Sorry

The last week has been one of the hardest ever. Lots of pain, lots of tears, lots of unknowns. Boo’s operation was textbook if not distressing but the 12 hours that came after were a rollercoaster of emotions and worry. Her heartbeat was so high it had the doctors worried; we still don’t know exactly […]

Boo's heart monitor on her toe

Boo’s Operation: An Update

It was Boo’s operation today, she didn’t like it (find me a 2 year old who does!) but seemed to be recovering well eating toast and chatting about going home. Then she took an unexpected turn for the worse so we’re staying put for another night while they monitor her heart and bloods. Deep down […]

Boo's Operation

Boo’s Operation

I’ve been putting it off, writing this post; I should have written it weeks ago but somehow seeing it in black and white made it all the more real. Today Boo’s being admitted to the Royal Free Hospital ready for an operation tomorrow morning. It’s no secret that she’s had a fair few health hurdles […]

Run to the Beat Nike

Nike Run To The Beat: Operation Yummy Mummy Just Got Crazy

It’s 29 days until the Nike Run To The Beat half marathon. Why is this important – well until 2.30pm yesterday afternoon it wasn’t however I received an e-mail to say I’d won a competition and the prize was a place on the half marathon. I was and still am in shock. Yes you’ve read […]

Mummy and Boo's Room 101

Room 101

Last night Cas from Mummy Never Sleeps tagged me (in an evil manner I may add!!) for the Room 101 linky. I love how Cas gave the brilliant explanation of what Room 101 is – from it’s creation by Orwell in 1984 as a room that houses your deepest, darkest, nightmares and how it was […]

Out to Lunch

Organix Out to Lunch League Table Launch

A couple of weeks ago me and Boo were invited to the Out to Lunch League Launch hosted by Organix and the Soil Association. The Out To Lunch report includes 21 restaurants, from multinational fast food chains to celebrity restaurants and ranks them in how well they provide the overall experience to families, including aspects […]

Chickenpox and click clack heels!

Our week of Chickenpox

At 7.30am on Monday morning I spotted what looked like a bite on Boo’s back by 7.45 there were another ten or so spots and by 9.30 the doctor had confirmed by worst fears – Boo had chickenpox! I’d seen the sign on the nursery door the week before saying that there was a confirmed […]

Boo's birthday party preparations!

Boo’s 2nd Birthday Party Eve

It’s just after midnight and these were my ramblings from early this afternoon: It’s glorious sunshine outside and I should be baking and decorating 72 cupcakes this afternoon – instead I’m googling the best ways to try and stop icing from melting in scorching hot weather. Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last couple of […]

Trunki PaddlePak Frog - Ribbit

Trunki PaddlePak Review

Summer is truly here and that means lots of days out on Mummy and Boo days; Boo wants to be like Mummy and have a bag so Trunki sent us a PaddlePak frog to see if it past the Boo test! I had notions when Boo was a few months old that once she was […]

Carolle Bath Baby

Corolle Bath Baby Review

Boo already loves playing mummies and has all the kit including the cutest mini mosses basket so she was super excited when I introduced her to Caroline the Corolle bath baby. The Corolle bath baby is a lovely doll – she comes with her own little pink and orange outfit complete with matching headband and […]
