Wouldn’t it be lovely to have something like this in Cambridge? Much better than coffee in Starbucks!

A (Hard) Working Mum

Hey mamacitas! {And papas!}

As you all know, I am working on a business plan for a company that I want to start. I have named it Pure Blend Organics because my main goal is to sell organic steamed/roasted baby food that is cooked and bottled on the premises. I want to help other mothers (or fathers) with feeding the most nutritious foods available to their little ones. Not only will this store be a one stop shop for baby food, but I will also have a cafe with comfy couches and play areas for mums (or dads) to meet with friends, relax, and enjoy themselves. My customers will be able to preorder their food for pickup at a certain time, or they can simply come in, order, and enjoy a coffee or tea while shopping through select books, DVD’s, and organic apparel. I will also be offering book readings (children’s books)…

And so this is Christmas… Well almost anyway.

Well so far we’re having a lovely Christmas. The hubster is home with us until January 2nd, so I almost feel like a lady of leisure! Here I am, lounging around, alone in bed with my iPad, without having to push crazed children, who are desperate to play the “dinosaur game” (darn you to heck dinosaur game!) away from my screen. Bliss. A cup of tea would probably complete my joy, but hey let’s not get greedy.

So today we’re off to church for the nativity service where all the kids and any sporting parents, can dress up as an angel, a shepherd or a king. The only one in our family getting dressed up is Maisie and I’m not entirely sure she’s going to comply. You see, I’ve made her an angel costume. I say “made”, what I mean is, “cobbled together”, some old net curtains and a bit of tinsel. Someone has assured me that going old school and making a costume is much better than simply buying one from Sainsburys, but I’m not convinced. I think as it stands currently, it looks like a sort of lacy, make do and mend, toga. Even if you squint whilst looking out the side of your eye it’s pretty rubbish, but hey ho, no one’s going to be looking at my kid anyway, they’ll be looking at their own, thinking how cute they look, or fuming because they’ve refused to wear the costume that Mummy spent hours creating, so I’ll probably get away with it.

After that, who, knows? Maybe we’ll make mince pies, maybe we’ll play grandmothers footsteps? Maybe we’ll put the baby down for a nap and stick the kids in front of the telly for some peace and quiet! What I do know is that there’ll be 2 of us doing it for almost 2 weeks and that really is bliss. I love Christmas.

Review of Polar Gear Booster Seat

Polar Gear Booster Seat
This booster seat is sooooo useful. You can get it on Amazon for about £17 so it’s not hugely expensive. Isabelle has decided she’s much too grown up to sit in a regular high chair so we dusted off this portable booster seat which still keeps her strapped in but allows her to feel like she’s a big girl. We actually mainly use it as a permanent fixture at our dinner table but take it away with us too. Ours doesn’t look like the picture because it’s encrusted with Cheerios and various splashes of yoghurt and/or sauces. Also our chair isn’t a straight high back chair but it still manages to work just fine.

Just a quick update (13th March 2013), I thought those considering buying this would like to have a look at how ours currently looks. Be warned, it ain’t purdy…
