Guest Post: Trapped Wind and Sleep Deprivation

Hello! Just popping by quickly to say I am guest-posting over at The Butterfly Mother today, as part of Laura’s wonderful My Mountain series about parenting challenges. I’m talking about having a newborn suffering with trapped wind and trying to cope with the lack of sleep. So do head over there and check it out.

In other news, Wednesday was Mr Techno’s birthday, so we are staying at his parents’ house in Waterloo this weekend to take advantage of some free babysitting. Curry with friends tonight, dinner with his extended family tomorrow…and probably an extended hang-over for the whole weekend. But at least we can enjoy some toddler free fun!

Hope you all have a good one!

Guest Post at Mumbalance: Fighting the Winter Blues


At the invitation of the lovely Joanna, I’m guest posting over at Mumbalance today with details on how becoming a mum has helped me fight off the winter blues and enjoy this time of year. Do pop over for a look and check out Joanna’s other posts while you are there – she’s expecting her second child in a matter of days and has loads of great posts on pregnancy, green living and raising a bilingual family.

Meanwhile, in real life we are enjoying a weekend in Suffolk, so expect lots more images of country walks to come next week. Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend outdoors too!
