At the time of writing, it’s 5.19am. I’ve been out of bed for about 45 minutes, but I’ve been awake for around 2 hours – tossing and turning, failing to get comfortable, getting up to use the toilet, asking Arthur to please not pull on … Continue readingSleep
5.5 months. 167 days. That’s how long it has been since I last blogged. Whoah. This would have seemed inconceivable to me at the time, but hey – I was just shy of 7 weeks pregnant with my second baby (still tucked up safe and … Continue reading167 days.
Apologies for the radio silence. Things have been hectic, and busy. Constantly. We’ve been gearing up for a house move that still hasn’t happened, plagued by all of the things that have and do make our lives difficult where we live, various family members have … Continue readingWeek 28, 29, 30 & 31, 2019.

This afternoon I’ve finally posted some photographs in my portfolio from my maternity photoshoot with Avalon and Steve in early April.
