News Flash!

OK, so it’s been over a month since my last post, ‘Where is Mama Bear’s commitment to her blog?!’ we cry.  Such tardiness is really not on.  You may well have thought I’d dropped off the face of the internet and you wouldn’t have been far wrong, I’ve pretty much dropped off the face of anything recognizable as usual human life however I have a very good/unpleasant reason for this.  Drum roll please…

I’m pregnant, yep, baby bear numero dos is on board.  Very exciting!  But I’m also suffering from Hyperemesis gravidarum.  Very awful!  So, I’m not cooking anything at the moment and until the thought, let alone the smell, of most of your basic food groups no longer makes me spontaneously retch I’m going to be an extremely useless food blogger because I’m pretty sure no one wants the recipes for my current diet of IV fluids and anti-emetics, oh yeah it’s that awesome.

However if it’s like my last pregnancy, and trust me I’m praying it is, I should be back to my usual rambunctious and comestibly (possibly not really a word, but suits my purpose) adventurous self in approx. 3 weeks.  I am counting down the days, no make that minutes till it happens.  Stay posted!

Baby Bear finds out she’s going to be a big sister:

I’m a mum, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a career gal, a yogi, a walker, a reader and a keen experimenter in the kitchen.

I was diagnosed with an allergy to gluten when I was 19, so I have a good few years under my belt experimenting with gluten free recipes and it wasn’t too much a step from there to Paleo when my husband got involved with Cross Fit.  In fact I think it made things easier and we both feel better for it.

My life has been turned upside down since the birth of my wonderful little baby bear almost a year ago.  I had no idea motherhood would be such a roller-coaster ride of incredible highs and bottomless lows, I wish I’d done it sooner.

I am so thankful for my fantastic hubby bear and my little baby bear, they make me smile, if not nearly pee myself laughing almost everyday.  My mother who is my rock and oracle of wisdom and advice (“worrying is like meditating on shit”, “all babies eat a bit of dirt, it won’t hurt”) and my sisters, there is no one better to confide in or have a bitch to!
