Life Lately…

 

Now that we’re over halfway through October, it’s starting to feel a little like we’ve just crested the top of a roller-coaster, in terms of the imminent arrival of our baby… The past few months have plodded along, but now time seems to be picking up pace somewhat!

Since pausing…

 

During my interlude away from my blog, we got up to a fair few things – here’s a little update on what has been happening whilst I’ve been gone!

About being pregnant

 

We found out that we were expecting on Easter Sunday. We took one test in the morning, which we didn’t quite believe, and so took another in the evening (after having spent a lovely but lengthy day with family!). That was the time we started to let the happiness, surprise, confusion, disbelief and glee wash over us. Finding out you’re growing a tiny, little human, is such an overwhelming feeling!

A secret…

 

As you may have noticed, I took a long and luxurious break from posting – the reason for which has been that we have been busying ourselves with the most wonderful and exciting secret. Of course, for some of you this won’t be a surprise as we’ve been sprinkling our news little by little over the past few weeks and months…

Pausing

 

Hello lovelies! I’ve made the decision to have a bit of a pause, as I’m well and truly struggling to keep up with placement, written work, photography, blog posts and life in general, at the moment. I’m not sure how long I’ll be taking a break for, right now, but I’m sure I’ll have a lot to share when I return – I’ve yet to post pictures from Paul and Louise’s wedding, as well as Caroline and Nori’s wedding!

Back to normality

 

Hello and greetings from Westcliff! We returned from our holiday on Saturday, both glad to come home and sad to leave our lovely canal boat. We had a lovely time, but now we’re back there’s a lot to get done. I spent some time whilst on holiday revising for my up-and-coming OSCE exams, but now the revision needs to start in earnest! I’m working my way through a mountain of washing, as well as trying to give the flat a spring clean. The usual culprits of Getty submissions, NIPE revision and being back on placement this week means that everything is gearing up to getting crazy once more… But that’s just how life is right now!

 

I’m hoping to post my photo an hour posts for March and April this week, as well as my submissions for #brilliantphotoaday for March. I’m also planning on writing some more midwifery/student midwife content soon, but we’ll see how that pans out with everything else I have on my plate right now..!

 

As always, check out my Flickr or Instagram for daily photos and life snippets. Take care, folks!

Essays, babies, pajamas.

 

A miniature update on current life: I’m struggling my way through the same essay, still (3000/3500 as of a few hours ago); I’ve had my twelfth delivery (and believe me when I say that, that baby was one of the most adorable!) and I’ve spent a lot of time in bed trying to recover from my last stint on placement. I’m tired and I feel completely drained right now, so I’m looking forward to finishing off this essay and resuming normal programming at some point… Until then, check out Flickr, which is probably the most up-to-date, accessible part of my life right now. Take care folks!

Pausing

 

Hello lovelies! My PC has been feeling under the weather since we returned from Rob and Lauren’s on Sunday (a little knock during traveling, no doubt). When I realised it was going to take a little longer to get things fixed, I decided I’d try to post a little more regularly over on Instagram – so pop there if you feel like you’re missing out! Posts here and on Flickr will be pausing until it’s sorted, which is probably just as well, as I have an exam on Friday I should be revising for…

Life lately…

 

We’re over halfway through February, and I’m now nearing the halfway point of this academic year. It feels simultaneously like I just started at university a month ago, like I’ve been studying midwifery forever and for barely any time at all, like I’ve learnt tons and yet I have so much to learn!
