Giving Our Bedroom A Makeover


As you may know if you are a regular reader, we recently re-decorated the girls bedroom, and brought Emily bunk beds as she really did need a new bed. There bedroom has now become my favourite room in our house and has inspired me to give our bedroom a little make over. Our bedroom is the biggest, and most unloved. When we first moved in it became a dumping ground for all the unopened boxes and things we needed to sort through, and to be honest it never really has got any better. It needs a fresh coat of paint, and a desperate de-cluttering. As we speak it is currently full of baby essentials that we need but haven't found a home for yet as our baby girl hasn't made an appearance.

Conquering Fears & Mummy Socials [The Ordinary Days]


Last week, Emily and I ventured out to a mummy social event that a friend Nichole had arranged. I was honestly so nervous to go, as I'm not a very social person which is strange because my daughter is the complete opposite. Emily will honestly talk to anyone and everyone which can sometimes be a little concerning, but for the most part its fine. For those of you wondering what on earth I am on about, mummy social is a app you can download. The aim of the app is to help mums find other mums in their local area, and it gives you the opportunity to reach out and message them, and arrange to meet up. It is helping solve isolation and loneliness across the UK.

Mickey Mouse And The Roadster Racers [Review]


Disney recently launched a new show on Disney Junior, called Mickey and the Roadster Racers. It is the successor to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, another catchy show which Emily loves. I'm sure if your children do too, you will have 'hotdog hotdog hot diggity dog' stuck in your head for the rest of the day now (your welcome!), Mickey and the roadster racers is about the sensational six (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto) they race around Hot Dog Hills and around the world.

37 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number Two]


Due date 
28, June 2017

Mood
This week has been a little bit of a mixed one. I do genuinely feel like the closer we get to my due date, the more anxious and worried I get about things I can't really control. One of my main worries is something going wrong during labour, and leaving Emily. I know that she is going to be absolutely fine, she never has any problems when we leave her, but I'm still worried and left feeling guilty for leaving her, but also anxious for being away from her. 

Baby Girl's Hospital Bag [Baby Number Two]


For a while I have been meaning to post my hospital bag post, I have left it so much later this time around, I'm not sure why but I kind of got it into my head that with preterm labour I would be jinxing myself if I packed it sooner. I have finally got around to packing it (at almost 37 weeks - eek) So, I thought I would share what is inside my baby girls hospital bag. When I was pregnant with Emily I definitely over packed, this time around I feel like I know what I do and don't need, with that in mind I have definitely packed less stuff. I also feel a lot more relaxed about it this time as I know that if I have forgotten something, Sam will be going home to pick Emily up anyway, so he will be able to pick it up for me.
