About blog

Blog author, Karen Reekie

I originally started this blog, in a blur of sleep deprivation, to get my thoughts and feelings down somewhere, on parenting, second time round, with a baby that had major sleep issues (and not just normal ones) but it has grown and grown.

I blog about cows milk and gluten free cooking too.
