How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep

March 17, 2017
better nights sleep

Today it’s World Sleep Day, with a slogan of ‘Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life’. Which is ironic, because as a mum you spend your entire life nurturing life, and for this exact reason you never sleep soundly. So for us nurturing life never seems to go hand-in-hand with sleeping soundly, ta Mother Nature. I seriously can’t remember ever fretting over sleep before I became a mother. How much I’m getting, how much I’m missing, where the next fix is coming from. I’m…

Shopping for the New House

November 3, 2016

I feel like I’ve been banging on about the fact we’ve been moving house for months. Probably because I have, purchase but you know, it’s an exciting process, getting a new gaff.

But I was also 6 months pregnant and the landlord of the place we were currently living had just put it up for sale and I didn’t want to end up moving into my parent’s house with a newborn baby. We did that once before when…

Be Right Back

January 11, 2013

The Harolds are on the move! Literally… we are moving house tomorrow. Nothing drastic, just 200m up the hill in our lovely little town to slightly smaller digs that will save us a considerable amount of money each month. I’m really excited to get in there, I have big plans to turn the kitchen into a pink gingham paradise (seriously, it’ll look like Cath Kidston threw up in there) and I’m even more excited not to spend the forecast snowy…
