Another Milestone Mastered

So, I’m back from my summer vacation. With one kid less than I started out with. *Spoiler Alert* EVERYTHING IS FINE! My older son just decided that since he is a big boy now – he’s graduated from nursery and will be starting school shortly, after all – he wanted to stay at his grandparents on […] Read more…

Mummy & Mini…at the Beach

The boys and I are off on our first ever beach holiday today for a week! Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look too good, but we’re being optimistic and have packed a few beach essentials. Firstly, our beloved hats – I brought mine back from London in June, and the boys wanted ones ‘just like mummy’. […] Read more…

To my son on his last day of nursery

To my Darling Boy – Today I picked you up from your nursery for the last time (or Kita, as we call it here). For the past four years and eight months you have been going there almost every day, apart from vacation times. On some days, you would be waiting by the door, sad that […] Read more…

Thoughts on…travelling solo with my kids

I’ve travelled alone with my kids many times before. The first time, was when we moved to Berlin. The husband had gone ahead of us six weeks before, and I had to make my own way with a baby, a stroller, a travel cot, two bags and hand luggage. A good friend of mine accompanied […] Read more…

Care Package for a Mama-to-be

I love putting together little care packages and ‘thinking of you’ surprises to send friends and family in the mail. And what could be more exciting than a new baby on its way! Anyone who is a mother themselves can probably relate to the fact that, once baby arrives, it all stops being about you. […] Read more…

Scotland, unfortunately, rarely qualifies – as is the case this time round – but luckily we still have […] Read more…

Foxy Friends for Foxy Kids

When you name your kid Fox, even if it’s just his middle name, you shouldn’t be surprised when you are inundated with fox themed gifts (well, okay, I admit I was responsible for at least half of them). When Mr Fox was born, fox print everything was still at the height of the kids fashion […] Read more…

Style Notes: The Budding Photographer

After a week of being cooped up indoors with a hefty bout of tonsillitis, Mr Fox is finally feeling a little better! So we headed out to the back yard to stretch our legs – and to test out his new camera, which arrived in the post today. Of course, mummy couldn’t resist having a little photo […] Read more…

Home Tour: Car Nook

When you look at any home tours on blogs, Pinterest etc, you’ll quite often come across the word ‘nook’ – book nook, breakfast nook…etc. Well, we now have a car nook! With two car obsessed boys in the house, we’re always tripping over cars in the most unexpected places. So when deciding what to do […] Read more…

PINK. It’s just a colour!

As the mother of two boys, I never thought I would have to worry about the colour pink. No, scrap that. Not ‘worry’. That is not a word I want to associate with pink. Because I am not worried. But I have been spending a LOT more time thinking about pink, talking about pink and […] Read more…
