Singapore Sling

My coffee with Connie, like all good tales, begins with the birth of a baby. Constance was delivered two and a half years ago, not by stork, but by the delicately named ventouse. She arrived purpleish and screaming with piercing blue eyes and long fingers. I suspect a piano maestro in the making…..

Since then, she has become a bit of a pal and has now accompanied me and her dad, Tom, to the golden isle of Singapore. We have been slung here due to Tom’s work and are busy awaiting the arrival of Connie’s sister in June. To pass the time meanwhile, Connie and I invariably end up having lattes and apple juices respectively in various coffee shops around town. We have a bit of a chat, a bit of a ride on a Bob the Builder toy, a bit of a cry if we’re feeling over tired (this applies to both of us) and generally discuss our plans for the week and interesting things we can get up to.

Assuming that many other Mums must indulge in these kinds of shenanigans with their sprogs, I thought it might be useful to pool some resources on thoughts, links, groups, tips etc. I may not look like Gwyneth Paltrow of GOOP fame, but at the moment, I have the same amount of time on my hands so here goes……..

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
