Welcome To The World, Willow Grace – A Birth Story

On Wednesday 20th July Allan and I walked into Ninewells Hospital in Dundee with a suitcase and an appointment to have our second baby. It felt so strange not to be in labour, but this birth would be a total contrast to Sorsha’s entrance only 14½ months earlier. For a number of reasons and after…

Life: An Update

Just now it feels like so much is happening and I don’t have time to do much, but really it’s only a few big things happening and they’re taking up my time! The main thing (if you didn’t know already!) is that in less than two weeks I’m due to give birth to our second…

The Mummy Tag

Happy Monday! Hope you’re all well and raring to go! Bumpy was giving me back and groin pains so I’m up early blogging on the joys of being a mummy, as tagged by Michelle at Mummy Mimi! 1. Are you a stay at home or working Mum?I’m a stay at home mum at the moment…

Life: An Update

Phew! I made it! I survived returning to work after maternity leave! OK, it was only for 14 weeks, but I am 32 weeks pregnant and was getting up at around 5am daily to work a 9 hour shift 65 miles from our home! And it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it might…

Returning To Work After Maternity Leave

Today was my first day back at work since going on maternity leave last April and I actually feel good about it! I know, it was only the first day and the novelty of not having to make up bottles, change nappies and do housework will probably wear off and become replaced with hard work…

Life – An Update

Hiya! As you may know we moved house 11 weeks ago and it’s been a bit quiet on here since then. Well, apart from our big announcement! Firstly, I have to say thank you to the lovely ladies who wrote guest posts while we moved, so thanks Jen from Jenstar Knits, Rhian Westbury, Lins of…

A Little Announcement…

Allan & I are really excited to announce we’re having another baby! Sorsha’s little brother or sister should arrive at the end of July and we can’t wait!

We’ve Sold Our House!

Our flat went on under offer on Tuesday and we put in an offer on our dream home which has been accepted! We’re so excited and I can’t quite believe it yet! Our flat went under offer on Tuesday and whilst I can’t wait to move into our new house with more space and a…

Things That Go Blog In The Night! An Update

Good morning! Here I am, sat drinking a cup of tea and rocking a giggly, hyper 4 month old to sleep. The house is still and I’ve been awake since 4am because Sorsha is having one of those random nights where she won’t sleep through. So now that I finally have some time, and inspired…

Welcome To The World, Sorsha Rose! – Allan’s Perspective

Whilst I was writing my posts on Sorsha’s birth (part one and part two!) I would ask Allan to help me recall some information. It was always interesting to hear how and what he remembered, so I asked him to write a post on his view of the experience! Enjoy! The labour began for me…
