Our week in Sweden…

This post is a little late but as I’ve been doing so much research in the last two weeks I haven’t really had a chance to sit down and consolidate. We recently spent a week in Sweden as part of our holiday and also for my research. I’m writing a case study on the Decorated…

An analogy for Post Natal Depression…

Recently someone I know told me that they had PND. This person is one of the strongest and most selfless people I know and all I could think when I heard this was that I wish there was something I could do to help her the way she helped me. However, the one universal truth…

Our month in Paris…

Tonight as I start writing this post, it is our last night in Paris. I’m filled with a curious mix of happiness that we’ve had so much time here and sadness that it’s already time to leave. I’ve always wanted to live in Paris and figured that this month would be a good tester to see…

A day in the Marais and a trip to the Cat Cafe!

Yesterday we did one of my favourite things to do in Paris. We spent the day wandering around the Marais. We are staying in the Marais in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris. It is probably one of my favourite areas of Paris and I’ve made a concerted effort to stay here the last few times…

Baby B’s 9 month update…

In 4 days we will be marking 9 months in, 9 months out – wow! This seems like such a huge milestone and Baby B has done some growing to match. Since his 6 month update his life has been such a whirlwind. He’s travelled halfway around the world to London, Cardiff and Paris and…

A turn around the Tuileries…

Today Spring has definitely sprung in Paris – how do I know? Not because the weather is nice, it’s been pretty nice on and off for the last few weeks. I know because finally the parisiennes are appearing in short blazers and denim jackets instead of big long wool coats and massive scarves. It is…

Tips for going sightseeing with Baby…

We have been travelling now for about 6 weeks and so far so good. Sleep is difficult but I think it would be whether we were travelling or at home. In fact the best thing about bad sleep while travelling is that there are two of us all the time. This means that if there…

Our first week in Paris!

Hello! Bonjour from Paris! We have been here one week now as the title of this post suggests and I couldn’t be happier to be writing it – except if that didn’t mean that we were one week down on our stay here already. I love Paris. I have from my very first visit. Surprisingly…

Sweet dreams…

Are made of SLEEP! oh beloved sleep, when will you return to me? I understand that sleep and babies don’t go together. I totally get that. When you sign up for parenting it’s bold and front and centre of that all-binding contract – ‘You will not get a goodnight’s sleep indefinitely’. All the same, 8…

Our month in London!

I can’t believe how fast this time has gone. Our stay in London is nearly at an end. This was something that I’ve been looking forward to for a really long time. I’ve always wanted to live overseas and given that our jobs and house are in Australia and things are really good in that…

Reservation for 1: London edition.

Today I took my first me-time outing in London doing something that would have been par for the course for pre-baby moi. Today though, it was like a trip to the moon and back. The Husband has had a few days out including a couple of trips to the pub and a day at the…
