Right Time to Have a Baby?

“Are we ready?”, I’ve lot count how many times we asked ourselves this when we were expecting. But not just when we had Joshua (our little ‘surprise’) but also when we were trying for baby number two! But, honestly? No. I don’t believe anyone truly is. We planned to have Oliver and tried for aContinue reading “Right Time to Have a Baby?”

Parent Guilt in Lockdown

In case nobody has asked today, how are you all? Life is all a bit shit at the moment, isn’t it? While Jamie continues working (from home), I’m juggling all the housework (which there is a continuous flow of with all 4 of us at home), working myself as I work from home anyway andContinue reading “Parent Guilt in Lockdown”

It’s All Just a Bit Shit

Well, it’s all a bit shit at the moment, isn’t it? How are you all? We are now on week two of lockdown here in the UK – to be honest it may be less, it may be more; I have lost all sense of time! With the schools shutting, we are now home-schooling whileContinue reading “It’s All Just a Bit Shit”

Coping with Knowing I’ve Had My Last Baby

I always imagined that when the time came where I was finished having babies that I would feel content. My family would be complete, and I would feel nothing less than happiness. But I don’t feel that way. I feel almost the complete opposite and it’s taken me by surprise. We all decide that ourContinue reading “Coping with Knowing I’ve Had My Last Baby”

Looking Forward | 2020

I have never been one for making New Year resolutions. Although, I love a list and the feeling of being organised – not just for around the house but also in life too, so I do often make goals throughout the year. There is something about a New Year that very much feels like aContinue reading “Looking Forward | 2020”

Being Thankful

I recently had a 5 day admission in hospital, which may not have felt long to any one else but to me it felt like forever. (If you’re not aware, I was recently admitted to hospital with some concerns over how our bubba was doing; which you can read about here) I just needed toContinue reading “Being Thankful”

I’m Not ‘Just’ a Parent!

When I got a full-time job back in June 2018, I got a lot of comments along the lines of: “That’s nice, it’ll keep you busy won’t it?” While it was meant as a boost and nothing less than positive, it wasn’t. It was said with blissful ignorance and demeaned everything I had been workingContinue reading “I’m Not ‘Just’ a Parent!”

32 Week Pregnancy Update

Well, I am writing this from my hospital bed. As soon as I heard that I may be staying longer, Jamie brought me up my laptop so that I can actually make some use of my time here and get some uninterrupted work done (horray!) As some of you will be aware, I have beenContinue reading “32 Week Pregnancy Update”
