You’llYou might never need them but I always have them in the press. Most of these I was totally unaware of when I had Ned and learned the usual way from other mums recommending them or running to the chemist and asking the pharmacist for advice. I put together a hamper for my best friend when she had her first baby in July and all these tinctures made an appearance. Some are not suitable until three months old and some are just for emergencies and some I still use daily with Ned in toddlerhood.
Rùna Baby is based n Kildare an Irish family run business specialising in bibs. Ned is pretty much coming to the end of his bib journey now I just use them to save clothes from certain foods or activities. Unfortunately though bibs and muslins were the most needed items in the house from day one with Ned he was so windy and gripey it was endless! Yes windy and gripey are the technical terms 🙈😊
Bless, you don’t quite get what that means and you think your GREAT at eight, nine months pregnant and still thropping along! You’ll literally never get this time again. People aren’t just being kind! Rest!
Baby number two is on the way! Post Fertility treatment bliss and relief was replaced with extreme nausea and aversions to most food other than toast and general white carbohydrates! So really healthy! It’s weird this time you do everything on your own because someone needs to mind Ned where as last time we were like loves young dream going to every appointment hand in hand.
I was never one for wanting a whole brood of Babies! in fact, I didn’t really pay that much attention to babies before my own! Let’s just say I was not a Baby sniffer! I’ve always worked with children and teenagers and enjoyed that so much …. I guess, I thought that’s where all the action was, so to speak. Diagnosed with severe polycystic ovaries at an early age, it was probably self-preservation to repeatedly insist that “the yearn” wasn’t really there, because who knew what life had in store for me.

This is for the Mamas who inspired, encouraged Ned helped me through my first year of motherhood. To my amazing friends and family both physical and virtual! Mother’s Day seems a most appropriate a time to publish this. This is not a blissful blog about how my heart has never felt so full of love and how every burp my baby makes my life seem worth while.

This recipe is exactly what it says on the tin, a good old fashioned pancake recipe. It’s not dairy free or gluten free or low fat or made with wholewheat or spelt or bananas! It’s just a simple pancake recipe like the ones we grew up with.
Nature or nurture hmmmm…
Watching the relationship between a three-year old sausage dog , raised and trained by humans, and a new born baby is pure theatre. Also, factor in that the new born is developing in to less new-born and more man baby with each day! Overall this scenario would overwhelm your mind set on the discussion of Nature and Nurture!
The strangest thing said to me when I announced I was pregnant was not “congratulations, when are you due? “………no , it was “ohh what about the dog?”
Hmmm… This, still to this day, baffles me……WelI,….I Guess ..now we’ve the hope of a “real” baby it’s to the pound with Mulligan! It was nice while it lasted Mulli,thanks for the good times.! Continue reading
