Dear God. It Has been 1yr since my last blog....here are my confessions......

It certainly has! and how time passes.

I think it may be easier to do a Year in Pictures, rather than babble on about what we have been doing down old West Sussex way. Yes we are still here, living the countryside dream....although my times spent in London are now so lovely and fun my love affair with it has started all over again. I was so proud of it during the Olympics (but boy was i glad i didn't live there then )

We have Good-wood and the South Downs on our doorstep, The beach is a 40 min drive and London, i can make it in an hour if i put my foot down (say 10 Hail Mary's for that one)....Children have settled beautifully and i don't think i'll ever look back. There are a wealth of things to do here, Polo is a beautiful day out for us and the children, there is always some sort of countryside fair going on not too far away.
 Petworth House is gorgeous, it has an array of celebrations, food Art and crafts plus a cracking Christmas fair which mila moo had a stall at last year.

Mila moo is getting more exposure, we sold out of our first batch of Liberty Nappy covers when Daisy Bridgewater put us in the Easter weekend edition of the Telegraph, we have been inundated ever since



available on www.mila-moo.co.uk


After a few set backs with our AW collection, we will be putting our collection online very soon. Between a very busy year, juggling mila moo, children and adjusting to our new life in the country, (you'd think we'd moved to the other side of the world!)...we think we are getting there, slowly but getting there.

Plus its 'Halloween' Soon....get your pumpkin parades photographed and put in our gallery, you could win your self a prize.

Love mila moo

A Mothers Guilt

What are we Guilty of? What a question!...we are all guilty of something, we may share our guilt sometimes with others....and sometimes we may keep it with us till the bitter end. There are no doubt many variations to feeling guilty...it could be that extra glass of wine...that last piece of cake....staying out later when you know you should be at home....talking to that person you know you ought not to. G-U-I-L-T Guilt, guilt.


My guilt of late is non of the above, i am guilty probably of all the above no doubt even worse in the past...and that's ok, as long as you live and learn. But right now its - realising here in the countryside, my son 20mnths is not really interacting very much with others, i work from home, sister at school, and other half commutes to and from the big smoke. 
little Ronnie, is very good at entertaining himself, and reading his books one by one and sitting quietly and watching his favourite programme. but i look on with pure guilt. i feel i should be taking him everywhere, do all the things i did with little girl at his age....museums....Gymboree....toddler mornings 3  times a week. Thing is those things arent here...Ronnie goes to a toddler morning every Wednesday with me. A morning walk through the country lanes. and a trip to the post office, daily...and then school pick up to get his sister. We do spend quality time together, we read, build blocks and have hugs and kisses constantly. But i feel guilty.
Am i being hard on myself....i don't think so. I know hes Happy otherwise i would see that he wasn't. But i do believe he should be doing more. oh i forgot he comes with us horse riding to watch his sister......still.....i feel guilty.
I remember feeling Guilty for a lot worse. But right now its this one that i have to get over.


What do other Mothers feel guilty about?
