Halifax 2019 Travel Journal

Flight – Thursday, November 14 It’s like I can’t really win when it comes to flights. For the longer flight from Vancouver to Toronto/Montreal/Ottawa, I wanted to be on an aircraft with a bassinet option. For some insane reason, I wanted to head out in the morning and it’s in part because getting into Halifax…

Halifax trip 2019: expectation vs reality

I’m a few days into my Freedom Halifax trip and marvelling at the way things are shaping up – definitely not according to expectations! Expectation That the flight would be a dream with Baby sleeping in the bassinet four out of 4.5 hours of the flight. I would be reading and writing throughout the flight,…

I bought a gray Ergobaby carrier when it was slightly discounted, going with the brand based on reports it provided best support…

Duchess-inspired workout

The more I follow British royalty news, the more headlong I fall into avidly devouring any news items about the “senior royals”. Unfortunately, my thought processes do support the lopsided and anti-feminist articles that report on what the duchesses are wearing and their physiques, fixated on their appearances rather as much or more than the…

Surviving the first month post-partum – Dining

I am working on a complementary blog post regarding the month of eating approaching nutritous post-partum foods in addition to what I stockpiled. But could you imagine me and NPY not going out for a whole month! Hah! Hugo’s Tacos & Churros Upon recommendation NPY found on the Internet from some pediatrician, we’d endeavour to…
