The National Botanic Garden Of Wales- A Great Day Out

We have just come back from a lovely break in Wales where we visited so many amazing different places but my favourite from the week had to be The National Botanic Garden Of Wales. Set in the beautiful countryside of Carmarthenshire these gardens are almost like a scaled down version of The Eden Project. With stunning gardens of varying styles, a butterfly house, Continue reading “The National Botanic Garden Of Wales- A Great Day Out”

My pregnancy, birth and aftercare journey

My Pregnancy, Birth and Aftercare Journey

When I became pregnant the first time I remember it all being such a whirlwind of excitement and expectations as well as having that slight tinge of nerves that I was going to be a Mum. However, when it came to actually being pregnant and getting through the birth I didn’t have any worries or anxieties. I had a lot on my plate with work and I had the attitude that millions of women had done this before so there was no reason that I couldn’t too! So with that, I only read Continue reading “My Pregnancy, Birth and Aftercare Journey”

my maternity wear wishlist

My Maternity Wear Wishlist

Now that everybody is in the know about my pregnancy it means that I can begin to get excited about getting bigger and finding some gorgeous new maternity clothes for the upcoming months. I hardly showed with Jake and didn’t get that amazing round bump until I was roughly 8 months. This time around I have taken shape quite quickly and I’m already struggling with certain jeans and tops. 

As we need to watch the pennies now Continue reading “My Maternity Wear Wishlist”

my pregnancy, the first trimester

My Pregnancy- The First Trimester

I was really organised when I found out I was pregnant and thought it would be a nice touch to write a diary. I imagined it being funny, helping other pregnant Mums and being a nice keepsake to look back on… Then the morning sickness started. Unfortunately, my writing went out of the window as just looking at a phone or laptop was making me feel dizzy and sick. So I have a little bit of my diary that I can share with you but after that you will just have to imagine me laying on the sofa and having my head over the toilet!

the effects kids have on our body

The Continuing Effects Children Have On Your Body

I wrote a post a little while ago about postpartum bodies but little did I realise that the effects continue on far longer and some areas you don’t even seem to notice until it’s too late! Oh, and it’s not only limited to us Mums… which kinda makes me smile. Yes, Dads, you are also affected by the lack of sleep, stress, exhaustion and restricted ‘me time’.

you know youre a stay at home mum when

You Know You’re a Stay at Home Mum when…

My life has changed considerably since becoming a stay at home Mum. Some may question my choice but I wouldn’t change any part of the last three years. Yeah, so my priorities are a far cry from what they were when I was employed and I may not be the hard-faced business person I once was when I worked in retail but I have a new focus and, for me, it is the most important one I have ever had. 

Of course, there are plenty times when Continue reading “You Know You’re a Stay at Home Mum when…”
