Emily Josephine Mendoza, born at 5:58am on 11th August 2019, one week overdue. She measured 60cm and weighed 8lbs 6.5 oz, full head of hair and the most flawless eyelashes you ever saw! I was in active labour for 26 hours, though my contractions started on the Wednesday before, but I had not dilated enough… Continue reading And then, she arrived!
At the end of June, I began my maternity leave. I had originally planned to start mid July, but I have been having continual issues with my hips and pelvis, that after consultation with my maternity physiotherapist, it was agreed I would finish at the end of June. So, I am now into the final… Continue reading Come on, baby!

I am still here, I swear! Had a few months of terrible health and constant work that I have barely been near my laptop unless its been for work purposes. I still don't feel in my 'writing place' as I desperately want a writing desk, which in turn requires us to buy a property! Its… Continue reading Lazy mare

Yay for time off! Finally its the holiday season, where I plan to eat a horrific amount of food, play video games and enjoy being with friends and family. When I was younger, I really hated Christmas, because it was always a messy situation in my family home. So naturally I wasn't much of a… Continue reading Christmaaaaaassssss!
