Libby has always enjoyed food. She eats anything that we give her, even if it’s spicy, strongly flavoured or otherwise unusual. She has always eaten what we eat and we never really gave her jars of baby food. Generally, it’s really convenient that she eats the same as us.

I only hope that Libby enjoys reading as much as I did. She…

It’s not often I get the chance to read, (toddler literature doesn’t count!) so whenever I go on holiday, I always spend a bit of time at the airport browsing the books. I tend to buy one or two that will see me through the flights and the rest of the holiday. A few years ago though, I picked up a book that I found truly inspirational. That book was “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall.    Since reading that, I’ve found it really difficult to find another book that I could get into. More recently, I have joined the…
