Conceiving Healthy Babies Book review and Giveaway

Conceiving Healthy Babies Book review and Giveaway

The white book with the cute naked baby on the cover, sat on my shelf for a long time. It sat there and got covered by other books because conceiving babies was just about the last thing on my mind. For the record, Bug is 21 months old and I still don’t have my period. [...]

 Giveaway! More than a Nut Milk Bag!

Giveaway! More than a Nut Milk Bag!

We’ve altogether stopped buying dairy. Babe and Papa consume it from time to time but it’s not on the grocery list. We do still eat cereal and I NEED milk for coffee, so aside from making mama milk, I’m also a coconut and almond milk making machine! Learning how to make nutmilk from Niki was [...]

Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, BC

Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, BC

I used to live in Edinburgh, Scotland. In the Grassmarket, in fact. From our rooftop terrace, there was a spectacular view of the Edinburgh Castle. As I remember this, I realize I totally took it for granted. The crummy part about living in Scotland was the weather. And that’s really about it. I don’t know [...]

Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney, BC

Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney, BC

There’s consensus that the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre was the best thing we did on our three week trip to Vancouver Island. Our trip to Cathedral Grove was my favourite. Papa’s was probably when we went out for Indian food in Comox without the kids! But as a whole, the prize for family fun goes [...]
