So as I am writing this post I am currently 12 Weeks + 1 which means we’ve had our first scan and can start letting everyone in on what we’ve enjoyed being our little secret for a short time. We’re having another baby! I’m currently baking baby number 5.

Here goes..The Brutal Truth.
You give birth, your insides feel as though they have fallen out. Your stomach is no longer the vessel of life, it’s more comparable to that of a wrinkly Chinese shar-pai. Your rib cage rattles with wind and your pee will reduce you to tears.
Your bundle of joy is beautifully made up of your eyes and perfect nose with your other half’s cheeky smile and dimpled chin. And then, there are those times when they could easily be mistaken for an 80’s werebear (remember those?) Read more
You know that song, the famous one, the one I, as a foodie tend to sing when a slice of carrot cake presents itself to me.

5 lessons I’ve learnt from my daughter. Life Lessons. Learning lessons
Do you know those times when the kids run past their dad and straight to you for something they quite easily could have asked him?

I can’t believe I’m writing January round up as my blog post already. How fast has this month passed!? I’m not sure if it’s an age related thing, maybe we become more aware of time as we get older. Read more
