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!
Yesterday, I reached 24 weeks pregnant and finally I am starting to really fall in love my bump. I have had body issues for as long as I can remember, especially when I hit my 20’s and my weight would fluctuate between a size 8 and a size 16. In recent years, I have really… Continue reading Bump!
It has been a very long time since I have done a proper post, but there has been a few very good reasons for this! I had had the full intention of making my blog to be about working on my new home, charity shopping and being out and about in Glasgow. We picked up… Continue reading Hey baby!

So much has happened since my last update! Tomorrow is my final day at my current job - I recently… Continue reading An update!
I am terrible at writing these days. That really comes as no surprise! Its been over a year since I last updated and I honestly do want to improve on that. Life has been ridiculously busy. I desperately want to get back into blogging, I promise I will work harder at it! I have had a… Continue reading Excuses excuses…
Part of me wants to write A LOT about my recent journey to Japan and how much it has changed how I have been looking at my life, but my house remains a bombsite since my mother's diagnosis and passing. Using this bank holiday weekend to ensure I have a happy home, because a happy… Continue reading Japan adventure…wait!
