I have to be honest and say we are still adjusting to the new year and coming off the back of the wonderful but manic festive period. The baby is not sleeping at all lately, which has meant very long exhausting days but we have still made sure to focus on family time and creating some kind of equilibrium even when sleep deprived (such is parenthood). We treasure the two days John has off each week and always try and do something nice wether it be a walk to the park, hike up the woods or a spot of brunch (for those who know me you will know that breakfast and brunch is my favourite meal of the day). So last week we decided to jump in the car and take the short drive into the city which also gave me a chance to rock my new Selfish Mother jumper John picked up for Christmas for me.

We have been meaning to visit 29 Park place properly since going to their opening party last year, especially as they have a Canadian pancake stack with blueberries as well as bananas on toasted bloomer (which was divine). What is fantastic about this spot is how family friendly it is, they have a free pool table as well as a variety of TV games - my eldest and I enjoyed a spot of Sonic the Hedgehog before food arrived, which was a real blast from the past, but most important there is a good vibe about the place and they make a great cup of coffee.
It's always great seeing new places like this pop up in and around Cardiff, a city which has seen a real food revolution in the past few years. Before Baby G was being weaned we didn't go out as much as we usually do but since he is eating and very much enjoying food it's been so much fun bringing him a long and seeing him try out al new different taste and flavours and as long as he has something to eat he is a pretty happy and easy going baby.
