The vaccination debate

So recently I found myself in the middle of a bit of a vaccination debate...okay I am exaggerating slightly when I say 'debate'.

Rafes swimming lessons with Puddleducks!

Okay sightly embarrassing confession coming up..I can't swim. Well I can probably doggy paddle a width whilst resembling a drowning Spaniel, but that's the extent of my abilities. It's not through lack of trying either, not only did I have the compulsory swimming lessons you get as a kid at school, I also tried one... Continue Reading →

The trial that involves 10,000 women offers women £120 in vouchers... Continue Reading →

Working out with a toddler…

So Rafe recently turned a year old which means he is officially now considered a toddler!!! Which is crazy to me. Now he isn't actually 'toddling' yet, he's still currently crawling (at a rather impressive speed) and 'furniture surfing' at a slightly slower and more wobbly speed! Everyone said that once he started moving I... Continue Reading →
