In my last post I explained how I went about setting my goals for 2018, here's a sneak peek into what some of them are. Now, full disclosure, I'm not lifting the lid on everything that I'm hoping for in 2018. For one, some things are just private and, secondly, I'm not one of those… Continue reading My vision for 2018
Apologies - this is another post about last year. We're only a week into the new year so I still have a few days of grace to drone about 2017... right?

I freakin' love Elliott's personality and quite often tell him to never, ever change! Sure, there's the tantrums. Mostly when I pick him up in the kitchen and deposit him back in the lounge when I'm cooking; or when he wants to climb the next flight of stairs in the apartment block; or sometimes just… Continue reading Elliott’s 18 Month Update – Part 6: Personality
It's a bit of a challenge trying to think of toddler milestones.
