21 weeks pregnant

This week has been really nice. The most exciting event was having our 20 week scan on Tuesday. I booked that day off of work so that I could relax rather than rush & so it was, as always, a lovely experience. I want to say a huge thank you to our ultra sound technician for being so thorough & talking us through everything & for giving us the gift of knowing our baby's gender.

20 weeks pregnant


This week has been all about wearing my tummy proudly. I've favoured more figure hugging tops over the baggier variety & although I am aware that I could still be mistaken for someone who's eaten too much for lunch I feel quite happy in myself.

19 weeks pregnant

I was hesitant around posting two updates in such close succession so rather than taking my measurements are normal time (9am ish) for today's update I decided to take my photos & measurements in the evening. I forgot to mention in my last post that the size difference can sometimes be vast between morning & evening. Especially the difference in size placement. Realistically this is probably because I haven't had a night to digest my food but a lot of other pregnant women notice this too & thought you might be interested to see the change.

18 weeks pregnant

It feels like yesterday that I was documenting my pregnancy with Evelyn but we're actually 2 years down the line! How crazy is that? It doesn't feel the same as last time though. But then, the circumstance is entirely different: When I was pregnant with Evelyn I was self employed, waiting for our house to be built so living with my lovely parents, I spent a lot of time sleeping or vomiting & by this point I would have already had a trip to hospital courtesy of hyperemesis.

Something Exciting...

George & I feel hugely blessed to share with you the news that our little family is expanding this summer.

Baby is due mid June & judging by my early enormity it has been desperate to make itself known. I am looking forward to ditching the baggy jumpers & wearing my pregnancy with pride. Thank you to everyone who has already congratulated us, we are overjoyed.

I hope to find the time to bring everyone along on this journey via the blog if you would like to share it with us. For now we want to wish everyone a joyous start to 2015. X

Something Sweet - Jolly Ginger Biscuiteers

Before my birthday last year I had never considered the possibility of receiving an edible gift through my letterbox but since receiving one, courtesy of some lovely friends, I have been entirely enamoured with the idea & frankly I think the world is a better place now that I have been enlightened.

10 minute time-out

I really struggled to find the time to blog last year & I wanted to go back to basics for 2015. Try to take some of the pressure off, forget fancy photography & just lose myself in writing again.

Toddler New Years Resolutions

Last year Evelyn helped me to compile a list of "Baby New Year Resolutions" so I thought it would be fun to revisit & revise the list for her toddler self.

Christmas Schnapps

This Christmas has been lovely for us, as it always is, & I let myself relax for the first time in a long time so I feel really great this side of celebrating.

Little Walk-In Wardrobe

When we first registered our interest in the house we now own we were offered a list of "optional extras" that we could purchase & they would install - one of which was a Wardrobe for our bedroom. Initially I was genuinely interested as I love how sleek custom wardrobes look, but on closer inspection I realised the "wardrobe" was just sliding mirrored doors with a clothes rail a small distance behind them. Something I'm really big on is making the most of the spaces that you've got & this option just screamed wasted space to me.
