Some people (like the mayor of London… ahem!) seem to think that living in a place like London means that you should expect terror attacks. Needless to say, I do think there’s a certain amount of vigilance that comes from living in the capital city – like any big city I guess. But underneath the hard exterior and the vigilance, for most people there is a deep love of their city and a deep sense of protection. Continue reading

Homophobia – A Letter To My Daughter

Eden had a lovely time playing on the ride on toys from Peg Perego and just genuinely being the happy little girl that she is. More on that in a seperate review post. Continue reading

Oh, The Places You Will Go – Eden’s First Shoes.

Since just before she turned one, Eden has been working hard at walking. We were aways told that we needed about six weeks of confident walking before considering shoes, and when that time came around we headed to our local shoe store to find Eden’s very first pair of shoes.  Continue reading
