Snow

As you may have heard, there was some snow. My social feeds have been full of the white stuff. It started off with people enjoying it: building snowmen; sledging and generally revelling over the weekend. Then, as the novelty wore off, the posts quickly turned […]

3 Weeks Postpartum

It’s been just over three weeks since Fern made her way into the world. Presently, I’m sat in Caffe Nero (aka my office) looking across to a pair of well dressed, contented looking mothers breastfeeding their babies over a coffee and a chat.  In contrast, […]

32 Weeks

Unbelievably, I am now 32 and a half weeks gone, and the time has flown. Panic has set in a little over the past week or so, which has spurred me on to pack my hospital bag but not much else except procrastinating and worrying, […]
