The Journey has begun….

The Journey has begun….

My phone vibrated in my pocket. Clara had just popped to the toilet so I assumed it was a text from my mum wishing us a safe journey. Instead a message flicked up from Clara, a picture message. I really didn't think that an airports toilet was an appropriate place to be taking pictures but on opening the message I couldn't contain my grin. "well...?!""well, I hope you washed your hands before taking the picture!"We grabbed each other in mini celebration as other travellers gave us inquisitive side glances."got everything we need?" I…Read more
It’s an Avent Event.

It’s an Avent Event.

We were recently incredibly lucky to be invited by Philips Avent to an event they were running to talk about a new product they are launching. This was our first event we had attended and to call us both shy would be an understatement. We arrived a little bit early as we are both a bit obsessed with getting to places on time. Though I'm sure that will go right out the window when our Lil Monkey makes its arrival. We noticed how at ease everyone else seemed as we were offered a…Read more
Our House is our Home….

Our House is our Home….

One of the most common questions we’ve been asked by friends since we announced that there was a little miracle growing inside my wife was, “When are you going to move?” .This question is guaranteed to get me reaching for my soap box as I try to justify our decision not to move just because we are increasing our household from two to two and a barely three.  We have lived in our home for 2 years this year and I couldn’t be happier with it. It's a one bedroom flat with enough…Read more

The Spice Tailor Curry Sauces by Anjum Anand – REVIEW

As we recently mentioned in a previous post "Craving a Curry" Clara's latest craving is curry. So it was perfect timing when we were contacted on twitter to review two Curry sauces by Anjum Anand.

The Coconut pack contains an optional spice pack and the coconut curry sauce whilst the Tikka pack contains optional spices, a base sauce and the Tikka sauce. Both packs come with full clear instructions on how to use the…Read more
Family Bucket list

Family Bucket list

Some of our early followers may know that I (K) turned 30 in March and spent the last year of my 20's attempting to complete a Things before I'm 30 list. I didn't quite manage to finish everything on my list before the big 30 struck as our lil bump started to take all my attention. I haven't given up on it completely it's just other things became more important. Since getting our heads round impending parenthood, we've started to think about things we'd like to do as a family. It has become…Read more
Having a Grown up day

Having a Grown up day

Today has been one of those days where you congratulate yourself on being very productive then have a mini freak out when you realise how grown up you've become. We certainly felt very "married" today. The morning began with me going for a haircut at the crack of dawn whilst Clara stayed at home and did what ever wives do when their loved one leaves the house. I know she doesn't do what I do, which is grab the Xbox remote and try and get in some time on Saints Row. We then…Read more
Kari Me Sling – REVIEW

Kari Me Sling – REVIEW

Both Clara and I decided as soon as we knew she was pregnant, that we wanted to try babywearing once our little one arrived. It took some convincing of Clara to invest in a fabric sling, as she was unsure if they were safe or not. After doing my research and putting my views across, she decided to read the reviews and we purchased a Kari Me sling. The Kari me sling retails at £44.95, which did seem very expensive at first for what we could see was just some fabric. But once…Read more
Craving a Curry

Craving a Curry

The last two weeks all I've been craving is a curry and a Keema naan. I've given in to this craving just twice. Which I think is very good restraint, as anyone who has ever had pregnancy cravings know they are very hard to resist.Previous cravings have been, Cornettos, Ben & Jerry's Phish food, onion and garlic dip and onion bhajis. Thankfully I haven't had any odd cravings. Though I still have 12 weeks to go.Read more
New baby clothes & Booties

New baby clothes & Booties

So the magical 30 week mark is soon approaching & everything is being stepped into overdrive. Our little monkey is a lot more active now & it's kicks & movements are getting bigger & stronger by the day. Over the last few weeks I've spent countless hours watching my little one kick & rumble it's way around inside & I'm pretty sure I can now judge where baby is depending on the type of movement. I have a funny feeling that baby is either going to be breech or is going to turn…Read more
Bed rest & Boobs

Bed rest & Boobs

For the last 2 weeks I have been signed off work on bed rest due to sickness & a fainting spell. I’ve never fainted before & it was very scary. I immediately booked myself an emergency doctor’s appointment  as I’ve learnt during this pregnancy, that it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Thankfully my blood pressure was normal & the doctor explained that it may have just been a dip. However as I am still having bad morning sickness they decided it was best for me & the baby that I take…Read more
