September 2013 Newsletter

Dear London Mums

Summer is over and school/nursery time is back on! Relieved?! I can see your sigh of relief …. 🙂

Well at least it was a proper summer to compensate us for the past six miserable summers.

I wonder whether we are in the middle of a new baby boom. It looks like the Baby Boom has arrived this year with a bang. From celebrities to royals, Brits are well and truly feeling the bump as recent figures from the ONS show births are at their highest in 40 years, with 813,200 births in Britain in the year up to 30 June 2012.

Potential reasons why 2013 could top that include


the Olympic Spirit

The rapture associated with Team GB’s successes at last year’s Olympics appears not just to be celebrated and applauded in the stadium stands but also in the homes of couples across the country as they marked the occasion.

Fifty Shades of Grey

The infamous trilogy of erotic fiction has been linked to the ever growing baby boom, helping to get couples in the mood since Britain went Fifty Shades crazy in the summer of 2012.

Jubilee Jubilation

Kate and Wills got everyone celebrating with their nuptials in 2011 and the Queen herself continued the royal love-in with the 2012 jubilee celebrations, bringing everyone together for a long bank holiday weekend of royal revelling.

Come Dine with Me

The economic downturn has meant more couples are looking for ways to spend some quality time together at home as more invest in ‘Dine In For 2’ style meal offers, creating the atmosphere and intimacy of a candle lit restaurant dinner in the comfort of their own home.

Royal Baby Fever
