Six months

Guess who is six months old today… It’s this little dude! I can’t believe that we’ve had the privilege of getting to know this lovely boy for half a year already, but also I can’t believe that it’s only six months since we met him. From this… through these… through these… One month old   … Continue reading

Just, you know, things

I’ve just decided that I’m going to write a post once a week for as long as I can keep it up. And so, even though I have Freddie on my knee right now, I thought I should get started right away. We’ll see how long this lasts, but I’m already looking forward to it … Continue reading

Two years married

We’ve been married for over two years now. Not a very long time, in the grand scheme of things (or even that long in the scheme of our relationship – we’ve been together over 11 years), but still an achievement.

I don’t know how I feel

If you’ve read the final part of my birth story, then you’ll know that Freddie’s entrance into the world was not without its ups and downs, namely that he was born with pneumonia.

Unfortunately that was not the case and after quickly discussing things with the midwife, I decided to have the pessary inserted. … Continue reading

Birth story, part 1

Almost four weeks after Freddie came into the world, and the first time I’ve sat down at the computer for more than 4 seconds, I feel compelled to start writing my birth story. Freddie is asleep in the pushchair after a long walk (for the moment), I have a cup of tea and a piece … Continue reading

13th May 2013

(Pretend this went up yesterday like I intended. Somebody who shall remain nameless – *cough* Freddie *cough*- had other ideas about how I should spend my day.) 13th May 2013 Dear Tom, Eleven years ago you became my boyfriend. Just over three years ago you became my fiance. A year and nine months ago you … Continue reading

A bit more about me

I was excited to see this morning that I was tagged in a post on Bex and Roz’s fantastic Olive Dragonfly blog. They’ve answered lots of questions about themselves (go and have a read!) and have given me 11 questions to answer about myself, so here goes… Liebster Award Meme The rules are to share … Continue reading
