My little boy is one. One. 365 days old. (Well 366 days when you're reading this or 367 if this year was a leap year. Like who remembers stuff like that. Unless you have a birthday on 29th Feb). Anyway... it literally feels like yesterday I was in labour and now I have a little… Continue reading Happy Birthday!
Everyday I walk past a lot of people and every single one of them has something they are trying to hide. Whether they are ashamed of their legs or arms, covering them up even when it's warm or people pulling their tops down, conscious that their stomach is out or trying to hide their bum.… Continue reading Be kind to yourself
So I was phone free for 36 hours. This wasn't planned. I didn't just decide to be without a phone for some spiritual reason. Nope. My phone had a massive crack across the screen, which meant I couldn't unlock it.

No but seriously, I spent four years preparing for this day (not physically- although if you're wearing fake tan then preparing a few days before is key. Last minute tan+rain=disaster.) Anyway, let's… Continue reading The Graduate: One year on
Ok, so I'm fully aware that my last post was his 9 month update that I posted last week but life's hard when you're lazy/ have an active baby to look after. Since the last update, he has more confidence when he stands up and he has started to be able to stand unsupported for… Continue reading Spencer: 10 month update
