Just before Christmas we were sent the cutest pair of water resistant gloves from kids travel brand, Snowballs and Sandcastles. Getting gloves on T-Rex usually goes something like this: erratic kicking (in my face) squirming and rolling to rival a WWWF champion, at which point I retreat defeated and we go to the park with a gloveless T-Rex.

A couple of years ago when I was pregnant with T-Rex, I bought a gold dress (above) from Peckham Rye Indoor Market…I know classy huh? This last minute purchase was an attempt to look vaguely decent at a wedding whilst also being a swollen butterball at nine months pregnant. Well, people were probably being kind but I couldn’t have asked for a better reaction to my £20 gold dress – it was a hit.
This time last year we were getting ourselves ready for an Aussie Christmas down under. If you have never celebrated Christmas in the sun, it can be a bit of a weird one…but in a good way.

For those who don’t know, Ross and I have just come back from two child free weeks in Bali – sorry to keep barking on about it I don’t mean to rub
