Monday Musings – Going Overdue 

So here’s a little secret, I’ve scheduled this post (and the posts for the rest of this week) so I’m writing this post pre-empting that I’ll go overdue. I’m writing it on Saturday morning, lying in bed at 39 weeks plus 4 days… In fact, by the time this post goes live I will still not even be overdue as I’m due on Tuesday… but oh well, you get the...

Foodie Friday – Date Night – Chiquitos

With the baby due very soon, Ed and I decided we needed to make time for one last date night before his arrival. I’m very into my Indian food at the moment but neither of us really felt like a curry so instead we found ourselves going to an old favourite – Chiquitos.  I do love a nice cold frozen strawberry margarita usually, but this time round I settled for...

Monday Musings – Why Ed Deserves a Medal 

Anyone who knows me really well will know I am not an easy person to live with.  I’m a typical Taurean, totally stubborn and stuck in my ways. I also let anything and everything get to me. I worry about things to worry about. I exhaust myself.  It takes a special person to take all of this on and love me despite all this. And the above is me normally....

Foodie Friday – Snacks for Labour 

So with labour now something I can’t really avoid, I’ve been preparing for it in every way I know how.  As I’m planning a home birth, I’ve been able to stock my cupboards rather than just a birth bag with snacks for during the big event.  I’ve tried to go for snacks which aren’t too fatty or full of flavour – it’s best to stick to fairly bland snacks that...

Beauty – Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask Review 

I bought myself this mask what feels like forever ago and I only got around to trying it out last week. I’m a bit out of the loop with beauty trends and hadn’t really heard about tissue masks before. Therefore I didn’t know what to expect.   I was a little apprehensive reading the instructions, and when I opened it and realised just how much moisture it had on it...

My Monthly Plans – October 

Oops, I missed posting this at the start of the month. I think the fact that our baby is due this month clouded any other plans. To be honest, other then ‘patiently’ waiting for our little bundle of joy to arrive, we don’t have all that many plans this month which makes this a pretty boring post. Still, may as well go ahead now I’ve rambled on for a paragraph! ...

Pregnancy Diary – 38 Weeks

Well hello October! This is the month that we get to finally meet our baby boy!  So I’ve been considered at ‘term’ for a week today and in that week I won’t lie, I have had several trips to co-op for reduced fresh pineapple chunks and spicy curry ready meals… My braxton hicks have continued to be strong and often, but never increasing or becoming regular enough to signal the...
