  • Santa and I have something else in common. My relentless appetite has lead to overindulgence in basically everything, including mince pies. As Luisa is almost 7 months old I’m straying out of ‘baby weight’ territory but I’m making like Kris Kringle and embracing it.

  • Papa Noel has to get round the whole world, up and down chimneys, past sleeping dogs and creepy stairs without making a single mistake in just 24hours. By the morning of the 25th I’m sure he’s thinking ‘Never again! It’s not worth the effort’ but he does it again every time. Just like you keep going through those long nights and cluster feeds – a smiling face every morning reminds me that it is all worth it.
