So yesterday we did a mammoth shop. We traveled to M&S for some super cute pieces and some mint jeans… did I mention the mint jeans? My sister likes mint at the moment and I’ve become slightly addicted. Next for a few more casual but stylish bits and Sainsburys for some staples, yup, good ol’ Sainos.
These were the gorgeous buys from M&S. Let me show you each one individually. Look out for the zebra!!!
This lot were from Next.
And our staples from Sainsburys. 5 vests for £7.50. 3 pairs of leggings for £6- sadly the spotted MINT leggings are being warn by her now and of course she has strawberry all over them already despite my best efforts. Jogging bots and bibs (not included) all for about £20! Boom!

Today we went shopping for Lo-Lo. She’s nearing 10 months and is out growing a whole bunch of stuff so nana, Lo-Lo and I went shopping in London Colney today. We visited Next, M&S and Sainsbury’s. Stay tuned over the next few days to see what I’ve wasted our money on. I’ve never bought so much pink in my life.
I feel dirty
Lo-Lo will now have been outside as long as she has been in! 42 weeks today. Happy Birthday!
And to celebrate this joyous occasion I share 2 photos. Yesterday I was doing the hoovering…. she’s still not too sure about Hetty the hoover so I’ve been hoovering near her with no sudden movements, she’s getting better. Anyway I was hoovering in the living room, I turn around and there she is, warming her face in the warm air coming from the outlet in the hoover, hair wafting in the wind machine. I laughed. A lot!
Ha! Yesterday’s post: Bristol Bath Buddies got a large amount of hits. I wonder if the people clicking on it were expecting a small story about 2 kids!
Anyway yesterday was silent as we had a bit of a busy one. We made our way back from Bristol and had pancake day to deal with, so you know… ample reason to be M.I.A. Lol. However on a serious note. We were spending time with Aunty Fi, seeing how’s she’s getting on with Maternity leave as it was her first day, so lots to chat about. As you’ll know we think Lo-Lo is teething molars and she has had a bit of nappy rash. Well Monday I noticed it was getting worse and yesterday I noticed when I was changing her that the small dots were all around her waist and spreading on her back. Then I started itching between my fingers, in my ears, my waist and in my hair line. So, worried it might be Chicken Pox I whizzed Lo-Lo to the Drs yesterday afternoon once we’d returned from Brizol. We were very relieved to hear that it was neither Chicken Pox nor Measles (deep breath for Fi) but more likely a small virus Lo-Lo had caught. The virus is at it’s height when the rash is at it’s worst (sorry William – Lo-Lo’s bath buddy from Monday night – hope you haven’t caught anything from her) and today I am happy to report it has gone down quite a bit so we are hoping she’s on the mend. Oddly enough the Dr said that babies don’t get a temperature from teething – I could have sworn I had read that they did somewhere. My mum said that often babies catch things whilst they’re teething as their immunity is low – I wonder if that’s why some of us link a temperature with teething?!
Normally daddy is Lo-Lo’s bath buddy. Today it was a different boy! The rather boisterous William. I think they were both as surprised as each other to get bath buddies. It was short lived but fun to play with someone else’s toys and to see how someone else does it!
I think I have been second guessing myself because Lo-Lo was a teary baby anyway when she was younger. Anyone we’d ever meet would say Lo-Lo was teething from about a month. Fingers were always in the mouth and she was teary. Yet we didn’t get any teeth til 7 months, so you do kind of think – well it could be teeth, but it could be something else.
The last few days, things that normally she wouldn’t cry about have set her off, like falling on her bum. She looks at you and you can tell she’s exhausted and she cries that sad cry. Seriously, only a loving hug will help. She’s had some interesting poops which she didn’t have with the first 6 teeth so this could be coincidental. There’s the leaky nose but again she has been crying quite a bit. However the things making me think it may well be teething are that she’s been off her food, very unusual for her. She’s been running a hot temperature when I’ve touched her head AND anything that goes into her mouth goes to the back on either side rather than the front. Could this be movement from the molars? We’re all guessing yes, after all they do move and create problems well before they erupt. She had some Calpol for the first time yesterday, helped to bring the temperature down and we hope it helped with the pain. Poor noisy, she looks so sad.
