I’m a new mum living on the Isle of Wight in the south of England. Teaching is my day job, which I’ll be returning to part-time following this new addition to my life.

My son and I are currently following a dairy free, soya free, egg free diet due to his allergies. Just to make things a little more fun, I am vegetarian and a super fussy eater! So a big part of my life at the moment is the search for varied, healthy, palatable food.

Pre-baby, my hobbies included crafts, sewing, reading and baking. Then my son arrived and I swiftly forgot how to function so these pastimes are a little (read: hugely) neglected!

Writing this blog is my way of surviving and recording the long, sleepless nights as well as the joyful moments when your heart could just burst!
