For those of you who didn’t know already my wife has been pregnant for the past 9 months so our home life has been turbulent to say the least.

We already have a son who is almost 4 years old and a daughter aged 2 1/2 so life is chaos as you can imagine which plays havoc with my bg levels.

Anyway my baby daughter finally made an appearance 10 days late on Monday 8th July at 11.29pm and weighed a tad over 10lbs (wow). Everything went well with the birth which was also fairly quick at about 5 hours in actual labour.

We have decided to call our daughter Elise.

Yes the sleepless nights are certainly common at the moment but certainly worth it.

Thanks for reading.

iCandy Stroller

My wife and I have been so lucky in purchasing a gorgeous iCandy Pear Stroller for our 18 month old son Jake and our 5 week old daughter Amy. We were so happy with the quality of our stroller and the superb customer service the we were given from iCandy and thought it was only fair we share this information.

My new baby.


Well what a hectic few days we have had !

My wife gave birth to my beautiful daughter Amy on Sunday 6th February 6.16am weighing 8lb 31/2oz both mother and daughter are doing fine. They were released from Hospital Tuesday evening after being in hospital since Friday morning. It was lovely to have them home.

This experience has played havoc with my Blood Sugar as I am sure you can imagine – it has been both high and low due to mainly stress. My Blood Sugar now seems to be back on track which is also a relief. I have also been trying dried Dates as a sugar boost and much to my surprise they work great – each date is approx 5 carbs and they seem to work fairly fast – thanks Annette for the idea.

Wow what a long week last week was and we are still awaiting the arrival of our baby daughter who was due last Monday 24th January but still not here. Next week is when my wife has to go into Hospital to be Induced on Wednesday morning so we are a little nervous now. My son Jake is 17 months old and is now getting into everything (Little monkey) but i am sure his sister will sort him out when she arrives ha ha.

I find it really tiring cycling home after a long day at work and I know it’s only 4 miles but when you have been busy all day that’s all you need. The reason I cycle is that I have Retinopathy and have had lots of laser which affected my night vision, this means I am unable to see to drive at night. Fortunately I have a super bright Exposure MaXx-D Mk2 front light which is amazing. The fact that the light is directly in front of me helps me so much and of course I am not cycling fast, I am looking forward to the summer when I can use my little Scooter. I have also been trying to save to buy an electric cycle which look great and would mean I would not burn so many carbs as my BG is always low after getting home from work, they are however expensive.
