Tried and tested: Cosatto Fable travel system and Mamas and Papas Spiral Confetti Spot Pushchair

A travel system is one of the biggest purchases you'll make when you're pregnant and it's so important to pick the perfect one. I'd like to say we umm-ed and aah-ed for a while before buying ours but it was love at first sight. For me, when it came to the Cosatto Fable travel system,… Continue reading Tried and tested: Cosatto Fable travel system and Mamas and Papas Spiral Confetti Spot Pushchair

Wish List: Clothes for Jenson

I love buying clothes for Jenson more than for myself - crazy, right? I went through his 18-24 months old clothes the other day to see what we still need to pick up before the end of the summer and I was surprised to see that we're almost there. We just need a few more… Continue reading Wish List: Clothes for Jenson

Item of the day: Car sunblinds from Mothercare

Last weekend Jenson went in his big boy car seat for the first time - and he loved it. He loves sitting up higher, being forward facing and able to look out of the window. The problem is the gorgeous Cornish sunshine - I know, right! So we need to get a couple of sunblinds… Continue reading Item of the day: Car sunblinds from Mothercare

Item of the day: Peter Rabbit quilt from Mothercare

In honour of Beatrix Potter's 150th birthday, Mothercare have the most unbelievably gorgeous range of clothing, toys, gifts and bedding. Nothing has made me mourn the ageing process more - it only goes up to 12 months! Fortunately, even though Jenson can't wear this sleepsuit or bodysuit, I can wrap him up in this adorable… Continue reading Item of the day: Peter Rabbit quilt from Mothercare

Best of the sales

I've not been able to hit the sales as much as I'd like. There's not a lot going on in Penzance these days and it's been hard to get out with a teething baby and while I've been sorry for myself with a cold. Hell, I've even been napping while the baby's been napping lately,… Continue reading Best of the sales

Jenson’s Christmas list

That's right, I'm talking Christmas and it's only September. I've been thinking ahead for Jenson ever since I found out I was pregnant, buying clothes for different ages, pinning things we can do together when he's bigger and now I'm thinking about Christmas presents. My family tends to ask for Christmas lists (yes, even at… Continue reading Jenson’s Christmas list

Item of the day: Bumbo from Mothercare

Jenson is already able to hold his head up unsupported for over a minute at a time so I reckon it won't be long until we can try putting him in a Bumbo. I'm off to Mothercare later this week to pick one up so we have one ready at the house for when he… Continue reading Item of the day: Bumbo from Mothercare
