A Look Back at 2018

A Look Back at 2018


With 2018 almost over, we look back at some of the great times we had over the past year. We toured some baby-friendly museums, ate a mystery dinner, discovered dinosaurs and finished it off with a wine tour! We look forward to bringing you more great content in the new year, but for now, enjoy our roundup of some of ours and yours favourite postings.

May the new year bring you and yours much fun, health and happiness! Thank you to all of our readers for your continued support and to the local businesses who have sponsored us throughout the years. Happy 2019!

A look back…

The 9 best museums for mums and babies >

If I have one piece of advice about maternity leave, it’s to do what you would like and what you think the baby might enjoy. As well as baby groups, go to museums and galleries. Rather than crawling around freezing church halls, let your baby have a crawl around some of London’s most spectacular buildings.

Songs and Smiles

Songs & Smiles: Baby and Toddler play Dates with the Elderly >

Songs & Smiles, an initiative run by charity The Together Project, is your regular baby and toddler music and singing session, but run in an elderly care or retirement home with the residents joining in. The idea is so simple, yet can have a big impact.

Delicious Mystery Dining at the Phantom Pig >

The evening began in a pleasantly relaxed way: we were told to arrive between 7:30 and 8pm for ‘mystery snacks and a tipple’.

Vinoramica, Highams Park

The Wine Wander of Highams Park >

For want of a snappy moniker like ‘Little Italy’ or ‘Chinatown’, I thought I would christen this area the ‘Mini Med’, but Mediterranean doesn’t really cover it. What they do have in common, however, is wine. Hence, ‘The Wine Wander’ of Highams Park is born.
