Halloween Crafts With Bakers Ross

As part of the recent Bakers Ross parcel we received recently there was a couple of Halloween crafts to do. At first I thought Halloween eek that’s ages away, but now I realise it isn’t really that far away at all. The shops are now filling up with all the costumes, decorations and all things related. E is really excited about Halloween, she loves to dress up and open the door to all the trick or treater’s and give them some sweets, it really is all very cute. As Halloween lands during the school half term in October it is the perfect opportunity to get crafting with your little ones, as you can guarantee after a couple of days they will be bored and no doubt it will be raining and as a parent most sanity levels will almost be out of the window! The first craft included was some polystyrene pumpkins,… View Post

Bump Watch 36 Weeks

36 weeks eek… Only four weeks give or take left to go! That is kind of exciting but also quite scary at the same time. Now that E has started school full time I am slowly getting some time back to myself. This is lovely but I am aware this is only for a few weeks so I better not get too used to it! I sometimes wonder my sanity for starting all over again. At this stage the average baby weighs almost 6lbs and is more than 18 and half inches long. This is equivalent to a water melon or the size of a head of a romaine lettuce. The baby is still gaining weight at the stage getting ready for its entry into the world. The baby’s hearing is also extra sharp during these last few weeks and may develop favourite sounds or songs that It will enjoy after it is born. With E… View Post

Third Trimester Mood Swings

My moods are swinging more than a child on a playground. In the same breath, in no particular order, I will cry, laugh hysterically and scream. The book, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” says women experience extreme mood swings in the third trimester, and our partners are going to have to have a little extra patience… I think everyone I encounter needs to have a little extra patience, especially as my husband is away four days of the working week. I would like write a book about pregnancy and I would have to say, “In the Third Trimester you will experience extreme bouts of psychopathic behaviour, it’s best to seclude yourself from your husband, family and friends, when this behaviour occurs. If possible fully sound proof and pad the walls in a small room in your home, as you will feel an over whelming need to scream and throw things. Also, it… View Post

Wedding Memories – Something Borrowed, Something Blue

With another baby due in October I have started to look back on the memories we have made so far, one of the most memorable is of course our Wedding Day. Looking back on the day we got married, August 13th 2005 it was a day of such happiness and everything was perfect. When we got engaged I had no idea how to go about planning a wedding, I had only been to one and we were the first in our families to get married. First thing on the list was choosing a venue, we looked around at various places. I originally wanted to get married by the sea, I loved the idea of having photos with the sea as the back drop but none of the venues really took my eye. We then visited a place called Hustyns in Cornwall and I instantly fell in love with the place.… View Post
