Just a little 24 week update. I've got a nice little round belly out in front now. From here on in is my favourite part of pregnancy . I actually look pregnant, and I get to feel the little passenger I'm carrying around as they move and wriggle about... and I kinda like people checking out the belly when I'm profoundly pregnant.

The only part I'm not enjoying is the ugly varicose veins showing up on my legs. Ugly and painful. I haven't figured out what I'm going to do in the summer, surely some days I will be too hot and bothered to wear a long dress or skirt to cover them up and pants will be out of the question. I wonder if a spray tan would cover them up much.

Did you get the old varicose veins? What did you do?


P.S. I am posting this at 2.45 am because I woke up too hungry to go back to sleep. I'm back to bed as soon as I hit publish.

A Birthday


Our wee man turned two last week. He's not so 'wee' anymore, and I've realised we've stopped calling him the 'wee man', I did love that nic name though.

I took him in to get weighed and measured, and if you use the rule of thumb that kids will end up twice the height they were at two, Charlie wont turn out to be the gigantor I was expecting. I started to worry after I got him measured last time and he'd grown 11cm in 3 months.

Particulars for you Aunty Tori... he's 93cm tall which, when doubled ends up at six foot one. One inch shorter than Ian.

Good Bye Granny

 We farewelled my last grandparent on the weekend. My Mother's Mother.



Our Granny was a funny lady and I'm glad I got to know her a little better in these last couple of years. After starting a family of my own I became more interested in my extended family.

My crafty gene probably got passed down from her, and after I take some decent photos I'll show you some of the stuff she gave me when she had a clean out.

Love you Granny. Mx

Happy Father's Day

My Mr, the father of my child, my husband, my love, doesn't read this blog, so I shant worry about wishing him a happy fathers day here. Instead, because I didn't get to make him his favourite cake, I want to wish my Dad a happy father's day, and thank him for always being there. And show you all how handsome he was...

Dad B+W

As I've gotten older, reliability is a virtue I appreciate and respect more and more.

Thanks Dad, I love you xx
