My freezer used to contain lots of ice cubes (for the G&Ts), a wine cooler gift, an emergency bag of sweet corn and another of peas, and some ‘we’re out of food and hungry’ frozen chicken. Which I kind of binned every other month as it looked so unappetising. We basically lived from fresh foods, … More Ice cubes: I miss you (getting the freezer ready to w-o-r-k)
I’m all for using KIT days creatively, and recently made my second overseas business trip with baby Jasper. We crossed time zones and picked up some jet lag. Plus a light sun tan, tagging on some family holiday at the end of a very long week of meetings… we made awesome family memories I didn’t … More Baby and business travel?
Yes, we bottle-feed and we have since our little guy was tiny. No, it's not for convenience. There's nothing convenient about creeping downstairs throughout the night when you have a newborn, to make-up formula or (my own early hell) get the attachments for the breast pump to express at 2am…. and 6am… while also feeding … More Debunking bottle feeding
Haven’t been blogging for a while as…. I’ve been busier than a bumble bee in a garden full of lavender! (How’s that for a summer phrase?)

I’m reflecting on the joy (ahem) of being a new mum. (I suppose by now I’ve “been” a new mum, and am now a lifer). And thinking about some of the particular challenges for women who PAUSE the career-treadmill. The type of women who know that if they try a bit harder at something, work at it for … More New mums who don’t have their shit together
I woke up of my own accord at 7.51am today. That is a flipping miracle. I didn’t ‘sleep through the night’ as it turns out that after 6m of waking every few hours to deal with baby… I now struggle to ‘self-settle’. However… I got a solid 6 hours of sleep, even with some quiet … More Mothers Day: Celebrating the Troops!
