Evelyn’s First Christmas | Raising Evelyn

I’d been looking forward to Evelyn’s first Christmas for so long. Her cousin was born 6 months after her so to have the two of them together on the 25th was going to be so extra special. Christmas is a mix of rushing round to see all the families. It seems that we have Thomas for Christmas Day one year and Boxing Day the next. So this year, as it was our turn for Boxing Day, we spent the 25th with my family. I love Christmas so incredibly much. It is my most favourite time of  ...

5 Golden Rules for Working Mums | Raising Evelyn

No matter where you are online, be it Facebook, a blog you follow or a forum for mothers and fathers the world over, you will always see debates happening. Boob or bottle. Disposable nappy or cloth. Pushchairs or babywearing. You could be the best possible parent, and someone, somewhere, will find a way to pick at your decision that you have made for your child. The one big debate that goes on everywhere is this one: Should you go back to work or stay at home? It’s a big question and any  ...

Why I am done with New Year Resolutions

Every year hundreds of thousands of people spend between Christmas and New year making lists and making promises for 2019. Millions of people invest in gym memberships, diet regimes and weight loss goals. This year I have decided to not do any resolutions. I do not promise to lose weight. I do not promise to be a better person. I do not promise to do this that and the other. However, there are certain things I want to get done, whether you want to class that as a resolution that is up to  ...

2018| What a Bloody Year!

As 2019 starts I have found myself assessing how much life has changed in the past 12 months. 2018 has been a very dramatic year in the Ritson household and quite frankly I am super glad to see the back of it. For me, 2018 started heavily pregnant with a tonne of aches and pains but swimming on the high of a new gorgeous diamond and sapphire engagement ring on my finger. I was a whirlwind of mixed emotion yet emotionally so ready for the year ahead. Evelyn arrived on her due date of 19th  ...

Slendertone Abs 8 | Losing those last few inches

Y’all been watching me moan (read joyfully experience) about my weight loss journey. Well since October things have really come to a halt. I’ll be totally honest with you it is completely my fault. I have been super busy with work and the Nationals and it’s been work events galore where you’re kind of expected to eat and drink. I’m not moaning about that bit… but my waist line is. And actually so are my social media stats. I have seriously neglected them  ...

Gift Ideas for Babies First Christmas | Raising Evelyn

Buying for baby can be really difficult at Christmas. Do you buy for a slighter older age that they can pay with as they grow or do you buy bigger clothes? or do you buy for right now? It can be a total mine field. Not only that but the risk of duplication is just ‘aaahhh’. So firstly remember to keep receipts or ask for gift receipts. In my family most people tend to give gift receipts as a just in case when it comes to kids toys. I have quite a large family (over 50 cousins)  ...

When a Photo has you wishing for more

When I did my A-level photography one thing I wish I had done more of was under water photography. Unfortunately, living in England, the water is so murky it makes it pretty hard to get any shots at all. I have been looking at a brand new waterproof camera, the Panasonic Lumix Tough Camera DC-FT7 and it’s got me digging out the old photos from the archives and wondering how I used to take photo’s with a compact camera. It reminded me that a DSLR isn’t always the best for  ...

Dress Those Winter Blues Away!

Well folks, it’s happened. Winter is well and truly here. It’s the time of frost encrusted windows, chilly, slate-grey skies and those ubiquitous multi coloured cups streaming out of those franchised coffee outlets. As we walk, we leave trails of cloud behind us like Thomas the Tank Engine as we negotiate slippery, sparsely salted streets and navigate the thronging masses on the high street to do those last remnants of Christmas shopping.
