I’m now nearly 39 weeks pregnant and we really are in the home straight! Freddie and Sasha were both 6 days overdue, so I’m not expecting our new baby boy to arrive early, although there is a part of me that would love to be ‘surprised’ with a 39 weeker. In reality, I will be more than happy with a safe arrival around my due
Hello! I’m back- not that I particularly intended to stay away, but the last couple of weeks have been rather busy with non-online things: Wrapping up my digital marketing job and handing over to my replacement (last day is today, that feels so weird!), and I seem to have embarked on some extreme nesting which involved deciding to start painting the hallway white last week.

I remember wearing the same handful of maternity items from H&M and Topshop throughout my pregnancies with Freddie and Sasha, and by the time Sasha
This past week has been lovely- I’ve taken a proper week off work (both digital marketing gig and blog), and thoroughly enjoyed spending time as a family. Not worrying about deadlines (although I do have a few of those!), letting the children stay up later and not fretting about getting work done in the evening, and unintentionally took a week off Instagram and the like.
