Three great books for new parents

Things I've Learned About Parenting So Far...

It mostly consists of negotiating bat shit bonkers situations with as much calm as you can muster. And when I say calm, I mean coffee. Though not all the time... I found one of my babies swimming in a pool of cold coffee after merrily tipping a cup over himself the other day. He looked incredibly pleased with himself while I panic-googled what-happens-if-my-baby-accidentally-drinks-caffeine. The good news is that there are some brilliant books out there to show that you aren't the only one wading through choppy seas. (Also, baby was fine after his cup of joe.)

SUMMER READING LIST




Last year's summer holiday reading list involved a lot of chat about spending 'hours and hours' lying on a lounger with a good book. 'No distractions', I wrote. To summarise, pre-baby Hannah was incredibly annoying. Skip forward to this summer and five mins without a distraction is more accurate now that I'm a twin mama. I do like to spend that time wisely though... either by lying face down in a vat of wine or reading books. (Okay fine, mostly I do both at the same time.)

A Year of Beautiful Eating by Madeleine Shaw: Review

TURNIPS ARE A SUMMER VEG YOU GUYS!!! MIND. BLOWN. 

I made this discovery while flicking through Madeleine Shaw's A Year of Beautiful Eating, a gorgeous cookbook all about seasonal food. I am useless at remembering what's in season. Maybe because I'm also useless at keeping plants alive and therefore there's no hope of me ever understanding what grows when? Who knows. But basically, I needed some help and this book is now my guru.

Sunsets in Sheringham

Every year when I was little, we'd spend a week in Norfolk munching midnight feasts, getting sticky ice cream hands and chasing the waves. Such happy memories for mini me! So recently, my husband and I thought a trip to the very same seaside would be ideal for our own little ones.

We picked heatwave week, which meant the twinnies went absolutely bonkers and refused to sleep. But it also meant that those bleary, early morning strolls along the beach at Sheringham were utterly glorious.
