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!
So I am now 32 weeks pregnant, I feel like I am the size of a hot air balloon and have the mobility of a drunk snail. I am constantly puffy and groan like an old woman when I try to get out of the chair - not really selling this pregnancy nonsense to anyone… Continue reading (Not) Working 9 to 5
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!

I am happy in my cosy house but when I have to go outside, that's just criminal. But I get the slow cooker on, shove loads of tasty food in… Continue reading Creature Comforts

I don't do this for any personal gain nor do I expect it to ever flourish into anything more than a hobby for me, but… Continue reading Learning to write again
Not going to lie, this post comes straight from my bed. The bed I have been dreaming about crawling back into since 9am this morning (it's now 11:48pm on Sunday night) and one of the places I love being the most. I never used to be one for staying in bed, I'm happier plodding about… Continue reading Snug as a bug in a rug
Tomorrow is my final day (well half day) at work before we jet off on our honeymoon! I still cannot believe that we are finally heading back to Japan! We have sorted out where we want to go, who we want to see and what we want to do. We just have to get there… Continue reading Soon…soon…
