You may consider us insane, for moving house, having a baby and getting married in the space of 7 months. And you wouldn't be wrong. It would certainly have made more sense to spread the three most stressful events of One's life out a little, but that's just not how life goes is it? Has … Continue reading You don’t have to do it all, but sometimes you will anyway.
When we were pregnant we were warned about the dreaded 'poonami' (not to be mixed up with Toon Army, football team of choice.).

I see people with buggies and babies and will them, telepathically, to be my friend. Sometimes, if I'm … Continue reading Coffee Shop Residency
