The Fappening

The Fappening

Unless you’ve been living in a cave in deepest, darkest Guatemala for the past three months, you will no doubt have heard of ‘The Fappening’. To be fair, you may not have heard that particular (and fairly distasteful) expression, but you’ll definitely have heard about the hackers who are breaching the iCloud security of various celebrities and selling their intimate photos to the highest bidder.

The Sticker Club – Review

I’m pretty sure that if you were to perform an MRI on Sausage, you’d see that half of her internal organs were actually plastered with stickers. The kid LOVES stickers.

How to Get Your Kids to Talk to You About School

One of my favourite parts of the day is the walk home after I’ve collected Sausage from school. I tend to spend most of my day missing her like rotten and even BB is at her smiliest when she sees her big sister for the first time since the morning.

Sponsored Video: We Love Weaning! #StandUpForGoodSnacks

Burrito Baby is now 7 and a half months old and since we discovered that she’s allergic to cows milk, she’s been so much happier. It’s made some things slightly tricky, in terms of what we can give her now that she’s weaning, but we’re really enjoying the process. Sausage was an absolute dream to wean and would try absolutely anything – to this day, she’s a really good eater and off of the top …
