Ending the year with a 5 month old dribble monster

Motherhood. I gotta say, I’m still trying to figure this out. I’m not entirely sure I get what you’re supposed to be doing most of the time. But the bean is fed, cuddled, burped, kept clean and generally smiles at least once a day so I guess I’m not doing too badly. It’s New Year’s Eve, he’s 5 whole months old and it seems like he’s had a pretty exciting life these since my last update for someone still quite small. For starters, he’s done a fair bit of growing and has developed some extremely smushable baby thunder thighs. They’re…

Wasabi – 1st Month Update

5th September 2016
Elliot-1M-2

1 month already! Wow, just wow. Well technically 5 weeks (by the time I actually manage to publish this – but little humans apparently take up a lot of minutes). It’s been a steep learning curve for me, hubby and the bean. Everyday I have to keep reminding myself that he’s still so brand new and that everything, I mean EVERYTHING is not only exciting but also unbelievably scary and unknown. He has no materialistic need for any of the beautiful things we try and surround him with. All he wants is to be warm, fed, clean and cuddled by…

The day Wasabi hatched

29th August 2016

Yesterday my little Wasabi bean turned 4 weeks old. 4 weeks old! On 31st July 2016 he hatched and out came an actual person. A living, breathing, screaming and kicking tiny human being. I’ve been trying to recall all the events that happened leading up to that first moment that I heard his not so little first cry. Some things I still remember so clearly and some things have started to blur even though it wasn’t really that long ago. This is probably going to be a bit of a long winded post, but it’s more for me than anything…

Milo & White Chocolate Cookies

4th July 2016

Milo? I hear you say. Yes, that childhood staple (well at least in and around South East Asia) of malty chocolaty goodness. Definitely in my top list of things that make you go mmm… The closest UK equivalent I can think of is a mix of hot chocolate and Horlicks. Although I have recently seen that you can buy the iconic green tins in various UK supermarket chains now! I absolutely adore Milo, whether it be in its usual drinkable form mixed with water or milk, or even topping a bowl of porridge. Thanks to a recent visit from one…

I’m growing a humanoid

6th June 2016

It’s probably about time I dusted off the cobwebs from my dear little blog. I’ve had so many things I wanted to write about, so many pictures I wanted to post. But it turns out that growing a humanoid is actually pretty life consuming and what I wanted to prioritise. Most people in my life know now about the impending arrival, affectionately nicknamed Wasabi, so I thought I’d give a quick low down on the last 33 weeks. Yes, I am 33 weeks today! Conception Use your imagination… First Trimester (weeks 0-12) Apparently I was one of the lucky ones.…

***NB: Giveaway is now closed, no more entries will be accepted. Winner announced below!*** We’re officially 1 today! When I started this blog a year ago on 20th January 2015, I didn’t really know what I was going to do with it. I’d previously blogged in my teens/early 20s and then just stopped completely for almost 10 years. So to celebrate that I’ve actually kept going and am currently planning to keep going I’m hosting my first giveaway… hoorah! I’ve had a lot of fun blogging about a random assortment of things, but I think these are probably 3 of…
