Family fish pie

As I mentioned before cooking for a little one with CMA can be trying. You spend a good chunk of time creating new tempting foodie delights only for it to be flung on the floor in a food learning experiment. It’s hard not to cry into your split dairy free risotto. Chin up Mummy and clean that up before the dog gets it!

This is one of my favourite recipes for the whole family, as in I can make one batch of it and we can all eat it. Something Little A adores, and I love as he’s getting some delicious fish into his diet. It’s adapted from Jamie Oliver’s Fish Pie, but I’ve cut out the mountain of chili. I haven’t included exact measurements as it depends on your dish.

Holiday prep – the one hack you need to know!

Eat beach

What a title. I feel like it needs to be followed by ‘get beach body ready in just 5 mins’. So with that in mind, here’s how to get beach body ready in less than 5 mins! Put on some spf and your choice of beach wear and go have fun! Ta da!

Right back to what I’m really talking about, the pre holiday prep, the packing, washing, sorting, organising, panicking that happens in the weeks and days before you jet off. While I adore holidays, I mean who doesn’t like a change of scenery, preparing for them is not something I can say I enjoy at all. In fact it fills me with dread. Living with anxiety means the weeks leading up to what should be a fun filled time of the year can be torturous. I am someone who has suffered from anxiety for years – this is not a new phenomenon, however post baby, it has reached new heights. What if he runs out of nappies, what if we are out for the day and I can’t heat his food, what if I drop his tin of special formula and it spills everywhere and I’m without, what if, what if, WHAT IF?!! What if nothing. It’s tiring trying to quieten down these thoughts, while simultaneously planning for your trip away. You’re conscious that you want to have everything right, not in a everything has to be perfect sense but you don’t want to upset their routine too, as most little ones are massive fans of routine. Happy baby = happy family.

Living with a cows milk allergy

No dairy

A cow’s what? Yeph that’s what I said when Little A was diagnosed with it. I’d heard of children being lactose intolerant, but never this. What was is, what did it mean for him?

Favourites – mostly from June

Whenever I hear the word June my internal jukebox kicks into gear and starts playing Smashing Pumpkins 1979, albeit mid song, funny how words can do that.

I digress, June was jam packed full of favourites starting off with an oldie but a goodie.

I’m a sucker for skincare, some might call me an addict, in fact I have called myself an addict,  I am in the midst of a full blown addiction to L’Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil. I spotted this in store one afternoon, but not wanting to be coerced into buying it by an over eager shop assistant I went off and did my own research. Would an oil really do a good job of cleaning off my make up, without causing spots? Was it going to leave a greasy film on my skin? Would it be relagated to the cupboard for all eternity. I’d used Dermalogica Pre Cleanse in the past but the yearly price hikes put me off. The truth is those price hikes have meant that they’ve lost me as a customer, you can get as good quality products for a better price, even taking into account the sometimes larger bottles.
