Weaning Wednesdays – Lentil and Carrot Cakes

Weaning has been very interesting so far – lots of mess and lots of poops! Some days I feel like I spend most of the day in the kitchen. It’s all good fun though. I’m doing a mixture of baby led weaning and traditional weaning. I know a lot of people will jump at me saying, ‘that’s not baby led…

Being mum

I can’t quite believe my little Molly moo is now 15 weeks old. That time has gone unbelievably fast – too fast! I used to laugh when I heard mum’s say ‘they grow so quickly, you have to make the most of every minute’. However, I truly relate to that now. Each day goes past and it’s hard to notice…

Family friendly break in Torquay

My partner, Chris, and I decided it was time we had a little holiday with Molly (who is now 10 weeks old). As she is still very young we didn’t want to go far, but we wanted to go somewhere different. I had a browse online and thought that Torquay would be a perfect place for us to go. As…
