Fearne Cotton has posted her first blog since the birth of her and boyfriend Jesse Wood’s first baby, Rex, revealing daily tasks have become a little bit trickier.
The radio DJ, who is a self-confessed bake-a-holic, has certainly been whisking up a storm in the kitchen. Showcasing mouth-watering treats she’s baked for friends - including her own take on a traditional chocolate cake - Fearne clearly hasn’t lost her culinary edge. But as Fearne reveals, there’s an art to juggling all of your interests as a new mum:
“Watching films now I have a baby is slightly different. Before it was: Kettle on. Get blanket. Eat snacks. Relax. Now it goes like this: Kettle on. Bounce Rex up and down on my knee. Forget I put the kettle on. Put kettle on again. Start film. Pause film to change nappy. Forgot I put kettle on. Put kettle on again. Start watching film again. Rex cries. Pause film. Forgot I put kettle on. Can’t be bothered with a cup of tea. Repeat until film ends. Usual watching span 3 – 5 hours,” Fearne writes.
Gosh, that sounds familiar! New mums have all been there, right?
