I had a baby

So in November last year, I wrote about my neglect of this blog, and gave reasons why. Namely, a baby was on the way. Clearly, I’ve since been neglecting this blog (again!), and the reason is simple – I had the baby. Matilda De Ling Choy was born just after 9am on Saturday 25 November 2017. She has filled my days and nights since.

I love her dearly. But at the same time, motherhood is draining. Lack of sleep (oh yeah, she’s not a baby that sleeps…) is draining.  I can’t wait to get back to work in two months time because I need to feel like myself again, not just Matilda’s mother. 

To that end, I’m going to try and be a bit more consistent about updating this food blog. Instead of updating once every ten months, I’m going to aim to update at least once a month with a proper review or recipe. In the meantime, I do suggest that people follow me on Instagram, as I’m very active on there and post regular small updates of cafe/restaurant reviews and share little recipes for baby food meals of my own devising.

And to finish off this blog post, here’s some of the highlights of Matilda’s life from the past nine months:

First time on the #swing today. Happy for all of a minute before she decided that she really wasn’t into it! #matilda #matildadeling #chanoy #baby #playground #park
