Pippa Laureate

Pip won the Southwark Council Visualise competition – poetry section (adult). She’s just got back from the awards ceremony with her £200. Well done Pip!

My piece of Southwark

I kick through the leaves on an autumn day, Walking in the park on my regular way. Bathed in bright sunshine or […]


We’re still here! Indie’s getting exactly as much attention as Laurie ever did, but we’ve had to sacrifice a few of the things we used to do in our spare time. Like everything, including updating this site.

Indie’s doing well – gaining 3 oz a week which apparently is good, although […]

Lily Allen

When Laurie is overtired I put on the Lily Allen album and dance with her, it honestly works every time. The song that goes ‘when I see you cry-y-y, it’s makes me smile-ile-ile’ is a particular favourite. Obviously this is not the case with me.


Smiles and cuddles

Well I nagged Barn to take some pics of us and although the light wasn’t great and I captured Laurie’s smile on manual focus (hence fuzzy as I’m no expert) here they are.

Grandma and Grandpa Moss are visiting today. Laurie slept from 10.30pm to 7am with a little cry at 3am but she […]


Laurie’s 10 weeks old now.? If she lives with us until she’s 20, we’re 1% of the way there.? And I’ll be 52 then.


Well right now there’s all sorts of crashes and drilling and builder shouting going on in our house. Laurie is however fast asleep in our bed having her morning nap. I thought I better get dressed with all these men in the house. Here is what the outside of our house looks like:

We’ll […]


Laurie got her birth certificate on Saturday. She’s now legal, and the name is permanent. We were given the option of a short certificate for free, or the long certificate for 3.50. You can’t get a passport with the short version, but then again 3.50 buys 14 nappies. So we got the short version.


On Thursday Laurie slept through the night for the first time.? Pip got six hours of unbroken sleep for the first time since the nineteenth of December, and was so pleased she woke me up at 6:30 a.m. to tell me.

Girls night out

Just been out for night to restaurant with 18 local Mums – I am so lucky living here. Barn did a great job looking after L while I scoffed Italian.

Laurie gains, I lose (I hope)

Well latest weigh in today – 10lb 11oz (that’s over 1lb since last Tuesday!) and now I’m finding it hard work carrying her in the sling.

I forgot to mention that Laurie and I now do Salsa classes! I lose weight while she sleeps in her carrier on my front. Requires quite a bit of […]
