How to complain

We all get pissed off by something at some point, for me it's daily and mostly at Luke but that's a different story. Sometimes we receive a poor customer service or feel let down by a product and with the wonder that is social media it is so easy to reach out to brands and business and share our disappointment and frustrations but there is a way to do this to ensure that your complaint is understood and rectified.

I'm not a "Mummy Blogger"

I always wanted to blog abut our parenting experience but I never wanted to be a "Mummy Blogger", I just don't have that whole wholesome advice giving yummy mummy vibe going on nor do I follow a specific parenting technique unless of course completely winging it counts? I've also found that some Mummy Bloggers can either be a little smug with their advice and methods and not be open to anyone else's or it often be a competition over who has it worse when it comes to teething, sleepless nights feeding issues. Without meaning to come across as smug; I've been blessed with a wonder baby who sleeps through, eats all his milk and doesn't seem to be suffering too much with teething, yet. I'm under no illusions that this could all change at any time.

Wanderlust: Dreaming of Barbados

I haven’t travelled for a while now and I’m starting to get itchy feet; I hadn’t really had much wanderlust before I met Luke as I am a solid little home bird but every now and then I dream of soft sand, cocktails and the sound of the sea lapping on the shore. I used to watch this holiday programme when I was little and these sandy beaches and palm trees were a world away; these days I find myself planning my dream holiday online and looking at the hottest places with the most luxury resorts and accommodation. Luke served in the Navy and travelled to the most amazing places such as New York, South Africa and Barbados – I hadn’t thought about Barbados much before but the photos and stories that Luke has always told me make me look at areas to stay and houses for rent in Barbados.

this post is in collaboration with Luxury Retreats but all thoughts are my own

3 month old in his own room

When I first found out that I was pregnant I was convinced that I was going to miscarry, I barely wanted to move incase something happened; I was shocked at every scan to find that everything was ok and it wasn't until around 26 weeks that my worries subsided but then a new worry took it's place, stillbirth. As soon as Freddie was kicking I began to notice his pattern and religiously count his kicks, any decrease in his kicks sent waves of panic deep down in my tummy and I had to seek reassurance from Luke. When my little bundle of joy arrived, alive and kicking I was overwhelmed with happiness, we made it and he spent the next three months sleeping in his moses basket getting gently poked and prodded throughout tonight so that I could make sure he was breathing. Things are different now, Fred is three months old has to go in his own room and once again I have those waves of bad butterflies fluttering around my tummy every time I put him to bed.
