Newbie Class: Part 28 (feat. 23 Week Socks)

Newbie Class: Part 28 (feat. 23 Week Socks)

Why did you start blogging? I started my blog after a difficult pregnancy, associated mental health issues and over a year off work. While I was pregnant I struggled to find blogs or articles written by other women who had experienced severe antenatal depression and I felt very alone in my illness. Five months after Squidge arrived I was feeling better than I had done for years and felt able…

{The Ordinary Moments 15} #4 | Dummies

{The Ordinary Moments 15} #4 | Dummies

I definitely think this year is the year my heart will break a little more each month, as every single week seems to bring me something that only further demonstrates that my boy is definitely a little boy and not a baby at all. We have been wanting to get rid of the dummies (or Ds as H calls them) for quite some time and it seemed that the beginning…

My Favourite City | Accor Hotels

My Favourite City | Accor Hotels

Edinburgh has long been my favourite place in the world. Picking three reasons to explain why is actually quite hard as I could probably list 100 different reasons I love it so much. 1) It’s Our Place. It’s the place I got my hub (boyfriend at the time) for his birthday. It’s the city we went to for part of our honeymoon. It is where we recently celebrated our sixth…

The Tea and Cake | Edition No. 3

I am really enjoying putting together this little feature each week. It’s really encouraging me to read a much broader range of blogs each week and people appear to be sharing the love lots which is lovely. If you’re here for the first time then all you need to know is that Tea and Cake is a collection of the posts I have read and loved in the past week, the…

Last-Minute | Word of the Week

Last-Minute | Word of the Week

Ok ok it’s two words but there’s a hyphen so I’m sneaking this one in. It’s been a funny old week. It seemed that every time there was a good piece of news, something horrid would come (yes HMRC I evil I you as I type this). However I think I am ending on some good notes. My work and I have been in discussion for the last 10 days…

My Family | The Prompt

My Family | The Prompt

Family is defined as “a social group of people who are related to each other”. That sounds quite cold doesn’t it? There is no sense of love or warmth or any reference relating to the strongest bond possible. While family are obviously the people you are related to, it wouldn’t be the focus of a definition I would give.  Family is one of my favourite things in the world. The…

My Captured Moment #3 | Six Months

My Captured Moment #3 | Six Months

Six months was probably my favourite age during H’s first year. Still so dependent upon me and yet reaching amazing milestones all the time. This picture is just one of my favourites of all time.

Why Did We Get Married?

Why Did We Get Married?

Last week I was sat with H in our bedroom and he looked at a picture of the hub and I on our wedding day. He has seen this before and often says: “That’s you Mummy, with my Daddy”, he then becomes mildly concerned to learn he was not there that day. Hasn’t he been here every single day? But this time he turned to me and asked: “Mummy, why…
