I’m now something of an expert in the art of pumping. I’ve done it everywhere. On planes and trains, in airports and restaurants, at dinner parties, and even once in an electrical closet surrounded by rat traps. My favorite has to be when I was travelling to Pennsylvania by train and a delay plus broken outlets in the bathrooms meant I had no choice but to pump in the concourse of Philadelphia station.
Egg spotting (Faberge-style). It’s not too late to join Faberge’s big egg hunt, which has scattered 260 eggs – designed by big name artists including Tracey Emin, Zaha Hadid and Jeff Koons – all around the city. This year there’s even an app to help you ‘collect’ them all. Head to Jane’s Carousel in Dumbo for plenty of guaranteed egg-spots.

Before I became a mum, I convinced myself that I WOULD be the Miranda Kerr of mothers. I would be well dressed and bouncy and amazing at all times. I would not leave the house in my PJ’s or covered in baby vomit and without a scrap of make up. My hair would always be washed, and I would lose, quite by accident, those 40-odd pounds I’d piled on. Because, well, if Miranda can do it can’t we all? Oh and I would also live a beautiful, organized house where healthy meals would be on the table each night for me and my adoring husband…
