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 […]

Pregnancy Update: 23 Weeks.

I’m so close to the six month mark now, where has the time gone?! I’m sure by this point with Harley we’d got everything done bar ordering his pushchair. Must try harder. This week has seen my hormones go wild and me gradually getting used to this new life as a zombie, but I’ve had […]

Pregnancy Update: 22 weeks.

The weeks are flying by and I can’t believe that over half way through now. This week has been busy, a trip to London with work (the train made me soooo tired), lots of running around and a new found obsession with decluttering everywhere I go. Bump is growing at rapid speed and I basically […]

Review: Vionic Shoes.

I love shoes. I’m pretty sure most girls do, right? At 5ft 1.75 (that .75 is so important) my pre-Harley shoes collection mainly consisted of platforms that the Spice Girls would have been proud of but now I’m much more sensible as despite however hard I try a 6 inch heel combined with a 2 […]

Pregnancy Update: 21 Weeks.

So I’ve decided I’m going to start posting weekly (ha wish me luck!) updates on how preggo life is treating me so that I have something to look back on this time next year when no doubt I’ll be missing bump and experiencing major bump envy. (Don’t worry mum, I promise no more babies after […]

An afternoon at The Dorchester with Asda Little Angels. #ad

On Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to the amazing Dorchester Hotel in London Town for an afternoon of pampering with Asda Little Angels nappies. After walking through crowds of very excited Tom Petty fans (he was playing at Hyde Park) and taking the wrong turning a couple of times (ok, 4 times […]
