40 weeks pregnant: Could this be it?
I think every day is going to feel a bit like how I've felt today; thinking that it could be the last time I drink a coffee in relative peace, get a chance to have my eyebrows sorted, sleep in my bed without a newborn next to me; the last day of just the th...

I am currently sitting in my PJs, watching Spring Watch in Japan - the cherry blossom edition - snaffling the last of Joseph's Easter chocolates! I feel kinda bad for not giving him any of the Easter Eggs he was given, but he turns into the actual devil whe...

Things I need to buy for my second baby
Up until Friday night, all I'd bought for the new baby was two types of cloud blanket, because, clouds. And a novelty onesie. My work friends all clubbed together to get loads of lotions and potions, but I'm most looking forward to trying the Kokoso coconut...

35 weeks pregnant: Time for myself
I'm pleased (and relieved) to report that I've had a few perky days in the last week or so, and I'm putting that down mostly to the fact that I've had three days pretty much to myself where Joseph's been at nursery or at his Granny's. I've been struggling t...

Potty training: Part 1
When we found out we were expecting another baby, something we knew we wanted to do was ensure that Joseph was potty trained. We didn't want to be changing two sets of nappies, plus we knew Joseph would be three by the time the new arrival, er, arrived, whi...
