We had found out we were expecting on the Thursday, and had a lovely weekend. This was short lived, as on Tuesday I was woken up in the early hours with severe stabbing pains in my right hand side. ‘This can’t be normal!’, I thought.

We got ourselves to the Doctor later that day- who happened to be the same doctor who we’d seen the day after the pregnancy test. (It’s quite funny- you go to the doctor to tell them/confirm that you’re pregnant, and they just say OK/congrats!! They don’t do another test- just take your word for it and get the ball rolling on midwife appointments.)

Hey guys- lent is upon us. Lent- which usually starts with eating pancakes (yummy) on Shrove Tuesday (or ‘Pancake Day’ as it was commonly known in our house growing up). Most of us have fond childhood memories of pancake day- Dad tossing the pancakes whilst the siblings gaze on, secretly longing that the half baked mixture will get stuck to the ceiling! When I was growing up the topping was always sugar and lemon.

It was May 2008 when I stopped taking my pill and replaced it with folic acid. My boyfriend Matt and I had the chats about how long we’d wanted children for, why we wanted to have them with each other and what sort of parents we hoped to be.

Neither of us had been pregnant or even had a scare before, so we worried that we wouldn’t be able to have children, whilst at the same time; secretly wondering if (and hoping that) we’d fall in the first month!

Tip 1- Go out, go out and go out some more…

The party season is upon us once again… I know that lots of you, like me, like to party all year ‘round, but this is the season where no excuses are needed, nobody will look at you thinking, ‘what.. another night out’, whilst handing you details of the nearest AA. No No!… This IS the season to be jolly, to eat, drink and be merry, to roast your chestnuts, deck the halls and jingle your bells. Forget behaving, if Santa hasn’t got you on his ‘good’ list by now, it ‘aint gonna happen, so just let loose and enjoy yourselves.

Hi guys!

I’m desperate to buy a new car this winter but seeing as the old pot of gold seems to empty itself everytime I get close to bugeting for one I came up with a cunning plan! I decided to do some research for all our tall friends on which cars are the most “Tall Person Friendly”- this way although I’m not shopping for myself… I’m still (pretend) shopping!

Okay so the best way I thought of doing this was to create an imaginary boyfriend (easiest piece of market research I’ve ever done!)- He’s tall, dark and handsome. Infact he’s very tall…. he’s 6 foot 6.
