Asda Little Angels: Tips for protecting our little ones.

A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited to a super-glam lunch at The Ivy with Asda Little Angels and Dr Hilary Jones. Yup at The Ivy! So I took my waddling-self off on the train and down to London Town for a child-free afternoon filled with amazing food (I’m not exaggerating […]

Pregnancy Update: 34 – 36 Weeks.

So I’m on the home stretch now. This pregnancy has flown by at a ridiculous rate and I still don’t fully think that I’ve got my head around the fact that I’m going to be a mum of two sometime soon. This week (week 36) in particular I’ve had a couple of ‘oooh what’s that?’ […]

Pregnancy Update: 30 – 33 Weeks.

Wow so I’ve reached the eight month point. It’s gone so fast this time round, with Harley the weeks dragged so much but during this pregnancy I blink and it’s Monday again. I’ve also become ridiculously rubbish at my ‘weekly’ pregnancy updates hence the four weeks covered in this one, oops. It’s been an eventful-ish […]

#TENATalk ‘Oooops Moments’.

To be honest I feel like my life is a series of ‘oooops moments’. The ‘hands over eyes’ emoji is my most used and basically the emoji that sums up my general day-to-day life. So when the lovely ladies at Myriad PR got in touch to ask if I’d be willing to share some of my […]

Pregnancy Update: 28/29 Weeks.

Eek, I am huge. So pregnant. It’s another double update because I’m rubbish basically. But the past couple of weeks have been a struggle and energy at an all-time low. It has meant lots of sofa time and having dinner cooked for me. And the good kind of dinners too – steak and spinach, gotta […]

Pregnancy Update: 26/27 Weeks

It’s a double update this week as the past few days have flown by and I’ve barely had chance to sit down! I’ve also been feeling really yucky with not one but two colds (how does that happen?!) and have basically just wanted to lie on the sofa eating biscuits and watching Real Housewives of […]

The milestones you won’t find in the books.

If you’re anything like I was when Harley was a baby you’ll be constantly looking up what milestones are next and basically what to expect. I also swore by the Wonder Weeks app, which I’ll definitely use again. But what the books and the websites don’t tell you is that there are another set of […]

Pregnancy Update: 25 Weeks.

Hiyaaaa future me who will no doubt be reading this in a year’s time as baby is nearing her first birthday. This week has been fun. Not – it’s been mainly sponsored by sneezing, snot and the constant toing and froing over whether to take paracetamol or not (I know there’s nothing wrong with taking […]

Pregnancy Update: 24 Weeks.

Jeez the weeks are just flying by now, well over halfway now, eek. It’s been a funny old week in Toddlerville with some epic tantrums thrown by Harley and lots of tears shed by Harley (and me too). Let’s just say we can never go back to Twycross Zoo again. I am now very pregnant. […]

Holiday with a Toddler.

So I’ve been meaning to write this blog for two months but haven’t got chance too. We set off on our travels in July, just me, Tom and Harley (and bump) for a week in sunny Spain. Harley’s been lucky enough to travel abroad three times now, once at 5 months and last year when […]
