About

Originally from Ireland, I’m a full-time working mum living in Brixton, London with a husband and wee (boy) bean.

This is not a scientifically or medically researched guide to anything.

It’s simply an honest (and mostly light-hearted) version of my experiences of the first years of motherhood, along with a collection of articles, recipes, books and other stuff I’ve found helpful or hilarious – from struggles with breast feeding to going back to the world of work and lots of things in between. Sometimes I follow the advice and ideas I’ve posted about, and sometimes not.

I’m also trying to keep up with recent news and other blog posts that are useful or entertaining, but there might be some gaps in posting, just due to general busyness (and sometimes due to a desire to sit on the sofa with crisps and catch up on our latest box set binge…).
