Come to Clapham Common (London) Tomorrow between 10am & 1pm 
I don't know about you but I am super excited.

See the Quinny longboardstroller is an exciting solution for travelling long distances in a fun and eco-friendly way. It brings together the comfort of a traditional stroller and the excitement of longboarding.
Hugo can't wait to try it out, I'm not sure if he thinks he will be in the stroller or riding on the longboard though...

Happy Halloween!!

It's Halloween !!
How exciting. 
Last week my two went to a few Halloween parties, Emilyn went to her first Disco. 
Both from School. 
The Disco was fun however Emilyn was scared of everyone dressed up. (all her friends) 
They danced & played party games they made me play musical bumps. (My legs ouch)

Hugo was a Pirate & Emilyn a witch.

Halloween 

It's funny before Emilyn started Preschool she had never dressed up for halloween. 
But as Hugo was part of her Pre-school parties he's always dressed up. 


Happy Halloween Dorking

Hugo's ADM hospital appointment Talipes 30 October

It was just two weeks ago we were here last. 
In two weeks I would love absolutely LOVE to say things are better...
Things are pretty much the same. 
We've kept the boots and bar, each evening I ask Hugo "what boots would you like to wear tonight?" 
It's nice for him to choose, like he likes to choose what clothes to wear each day.


I've kind of given up, No I don't get much sleep & yes each night is drama with trying to get him to wear his boots, the ADM's or the boots and bar.
I've finally accepted this is my life & i'm feeling a lot more content with it all.
We will be going back in a few months now. Such a nice feeling after spending so much time at the hospital recently. 
His feet are doing really good!! 
All positives.

Quinny longboardstroller: an experiment in mobility, fusing longboarding & strollers.

 Quinny longboardstroller: an experiment in mobility, fusing longboarding & strollers.
Try it on Clapham Common, London, 10am -1pm, Saturday 1 November

The London city streets are about to get a little more exciting! Quinny has developed a fun and innovative new mobility concept; the Quinny longboardstroller. It's a completely new and spectacular way to cruise through the city with your kid. And it's environmentally-friendly as well.

Quinny has organised a test day for press and public to experience it. Meet us on Clapham Common, London, 10am - 1pm, Saturday 1 November.

Quinny is all about pushing limits. Mobility challenges that parents face every day are a burden. To tackle these challenges, the Quinny longboardstroller takes a different approach to urban mobility. It gives the experience and freedom of riding a longboard and enables parents to travel faster than with a regular stroller - so they can explore more of the city together with their kids.

Co-developed with consumers
Innovation, creating new mobility solutions for parents, is in Quinny's DNA, but ideas like this don't come along every day. The concept came about following a worldwide consumer research study on urban parenting, which was commissioned by Quinny last year. The results showed that many parents living in urban areas travel around their city a lot less after they have children. The new Quinny longboardstroller gives them back their freedom to roam.


Early on in the project Quinny decided to start a blog and a Facebook page to see if there was interest amongst consumers. In just a few weeks, the concept went viral and attracted thousands of fans. Quinny further developed the concept with longboarding experts and parents from all over the world. The result: a premium consumer-friendly longboardstroller!

"We want to get input from consumers and specialists as early in the design process as possible. Their input is incredibly valuable for our product development" - Mark Schrooten, Innovation Director Quinny.

We invite you for the test day!
Meet us on Clapham Common, London, 10am - 1pm, Saturday 1 November. The nearest underground stations are Clapham North or South on the Northern line; it is a short walk to the centre of the park and we will be located near to the bandstand.

Coco's first walk 12weeks old

This weekend has been pretty exciting, we've been on the countdown to be able to take Coco out on her first walk. Saturday we awaited Mr.H (Daddy) to come home from work to take Coco on her first family walk. We also took Molly with us our 7 year old Lhasa Apso, it was so lovely to watch them run down the old railway track together. Molly at times looked at Coco like your a crazy puppy!! Emilyn loved holding her lead & taking Coco for a walk. 
Coco seems to be feeling better too, touch wood she stays healthy now. 

She will be having her microchip done in two weeks something I'm not looking forwards too after just how much she cried at her first injections. 

Coco's now been on a few walks she's getting good at walking with a lead attached to her. Thank goodness.

I'm sure it's that cheeky fox that makes me want it, Hugo totally didn't help when he said "For Christmas mummy Can I have for Christmas please..." He's just as obsessed by buggies as I am...

Donna Wilson 


The bloom highchairs - I know I say this a lot (I don't plan to have any more babies) though if & its a hypothetical if I was to ever have another baby. I would totally be buying the Bloom highchair. I couldn't stop looking at them when expecting Hugo but due to his boots and bar I just didn't know if the high chair would be practical. They are heavenly beautiful though.

HOW FUNKY is this Bloom highchair 
The Silver Cross Wayfarer Special Edition Safari has been developed exclusively for Mothercare and will be available soon. It looks so beautiful

A crib... that's a high chair that turns into a table & chairs....
This is what my blog posts on the baby shows are all about - NEW & amazing inventions that make our life as parents easier. Ok so baby will stay in a crib maximum 6 months.... most out by four months they wriggle & need the space... then of course what a clever idea to then turn the crib in to the highchair & then the highchair in a table & chairs. When baby has outgrown the highchair. WHAT an AMAZING Idea!! You can check it out yourself HERE
It's not just stylish it's the most functional thing I've seen for a long time!!
The Nuna highchair
We actually own a Nuna Zaaz highchair (I know we own something pretty cool looking)  I bought it for it's clean lines & modern minimalistic feel, I also loved that this highchair can grow with your child & Hugo at almost 3 years old can still use it.
Nuna Zaaz
You should know Trunki by now. The best travel suitcase for your little darling??
Well now you can completely customise your own!! Delivery time so they say is less than a week too!!
So that holiday you booked for next month : you still have time to customise your little ones very own Trunki.
