What’s Brewing?

Coffee and StrudelWith four weeks to go on Wednesday till my due date I’m really starting to get excited about meeting the toaty one. I’m wondering whether it’s going to be a boy or a girl I really have no idea either way. What colour of eyes will he or she have? What colour will his or her hair be and will it be straight like mine or wavy like Kev’s? None of these questions are really important though as the main thing I’m hoping for is a healthy happy baby. It’s not long now till we find out the answers to all these questions.

Instead I’ve compiled this little selection of spring bunny fun to celebrate the new season, the nights getting lighter and the temperature rising. Hoppy days. Continue Reading

Packing for the toaty one is the easy part, he or she is not going to need very much and everything that will be needed is a joy to pack as its so cute. Continue Reading

Edinburgh TenementIf you live in the city centre in Edinburgh it’s more than likely you live in a tenement flat. This means stairs and often lots of them, for us it’s three flights up to the top floor and our lovely sunny flat. There are lots of benefits to living on the top floor, no noisy neighbours above you, lots of natural light and heat from all the flats below to name just a few. Continue Reading

Toaty Temptations

Toaty TemptationsTrying to stay minimal in the purchases for a new baby can be a very difficult thing. There are so many cute and appealing clothes out there it’s hard to resist the temptation to just buy, buy, buy. Our society is built around consumption and so much marketing and pressure is geared at new parents it can very hard to stick to the essentials.
