Three weeks in: Ninjas, nits and a newborn

WHEN picturing your life after having a baby you might imagine cosy evenings all snuggled up on the settee watching Disney films. What you don’t expect is to be watching your husband apply nit lotion to your toddler at 7.30am on a Friday while watching Bing get indignant about something ridiculous yet again. But that’s Read More

Little things make a big difference

IT’S 1.59am and I’m up with Ezra. Thankfully it’s the first time he’s woken tonight so I’ve had a decent stretch of sleep compared with the past few nights. Stew, on the other hand, isn’t in bed and hasn’t been all night. He stayed up with Ezra so I could get some all-important sleep, and Read More

Our bank holiday weekend: Birthday parties, building and no baby!

38 week bump

38 weeks pregnant: Maternity leave week one and the last bump shot?

I CAN’T quite believe I’ve already had a week and a half off work – I’ve lasted 11 more days without going in to hospital than on my maternity leave with Santi! I haven’t stopped, but at the same time feel like I haven’t achieved much at all. I certainly haven’t been relaxing like I Read More

36 and 37 week pregnancy update: Baby showers and the end of work!

I feel like these past few weeks have been quite eventful, even though nothing major has happened. The first, fairly big thing I suppose, was that I decided finishing work a week early would be for the best. I’ve been getting home exhausted and had a few early shifts in a row, which meant getting Read More

Pregnancy update: Weeks 20-24

Hello! This is my second proper pregnancy update, which is ridiculous as I’m now 24 weeks along, but time is flying by so fast that I just haven’t had time to sit down and think about it. If you read my last post, you’ll know we had a bit of a tough week with Santi Read More

Pregnancy update: Weeks 12-20

I can’t quite believe I’m already half way through my second pregnancy – plus two weeks now as it’s taken me so long to get this written. When I found out I was pregnant at around four or five weeks I had grand plans of regular blog updates so I would have a proper record of it … Read More
