My favourite salad dressing

My favourite salad dressing

I’ve been craving lots of yummy fresh food this pregnancy. I’ve been making myself a plateful of salad every lunch timne {and usually to go with whatever we’re having for dinner too!}. In this hot weather salad, houmous and oatcakes is perfect – light and filling. I try and make sure my salad is colourful – sweetcorn, beetroot, salad onions, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber. Topped with a little…

Slow Summer Days

baya drinking Little Cracker Drinks

The weather this week has been amazing! SO hot and sunny… we’ve been soaking up every little bit. My Mama came this week for a visit that coincided with her birthday on Friday. We spent the day out at the river at a local country park, Ty Mawr. We found a little bay that had some shade as well, which was much appreciated as it really was incredibly hot.

We packed up a picnic full of yummy…

Maternity Series - Week 19

Maternity Series – Week 19

Nineteen weeks – there’s no hiding this bump! It’s only when I see these photos that I realise how much it’s there. I’m still wearing mostly my normal clothes, though my shorts are getting a touch tight {thank goodness for the hair bobble on the button trick!}.

I’m still feeling pretty great, sickness is long gone, and my energy levels are nearly back to normal. As long as I take my Spatone…

Summer Smoothie

This pregnancy, the one thing I’ve been craving is fresh fruit. Actually, that’s what I’ve craved all four times. I’ve also found that I really need to have a snack mid-morning and mid-afternoon, else I start to feel really rotten by the time it’s lunch/dinner. I’ve been making a big smoothie most days – fresh fruit to satisfy my craving and keeps me going until it’s meal time again! The girls…

Spa night - ticking one off the summer bucket list

Spa night – ticking one off the summer bucket list


One of the things the girls added to our Summer Bucket Listwas a Spa Night. We took our chance a couple of weekends back when Papa was at Wakestock. The girls were very excited – they set out all their nail varnishes/make-up/massage creams. I had my nails painted several times {and half of my fingers/toes!}, we did each others make up, and the girls gave me a very much appreciated arm and tummy…

Feeding a family at a festival

Feeding a family at a festival

The Dead Good Burritto Company

A few people have asked me about food at a festival – mainly in terms of how expensive is it, especially when you’re taking a family with you. You could easily buy every meal out, but that would have blown our budget feeding 5 people three times a day plus snacks! You could also completyl self-cater for every meal… but what we opted for was to take food for breakfast/lunch/snacks and then buy an…

Maternity Series - Week 18

Maternity Series – Week 18

Maternity Series - Week Eighteen

Eighteen Weeks – so close to the halfway mark! I’m so impatient now for our twenty week scan! I wish I could go right now. We’ve been talking names this week, and think we have *the one*. My fabulous new pram arrived this wee – thanks to Cosatto. So all we really need are clothes once we know the gender!

I’m still feeling pretty good, a little tired but ok in general. Sleeping is starting to get…
