Long time, no chat

Hello everyone

Sorry it’s been so long, there’s been a LOT going on here and my poor blog has been left out in the cold. As well as being seriously busy, if I’m honest, I kind of fell out of love with blogging.  I’ve never claimed to be a writer, far from it but this blog is for me, somewhere to record what’s going on in my life and I just got to a point where I wasn’t enjoying it anymore.  I feel refreshed and ready to start again.

So there has been some big changes in our family over the last few months.  By the start of December we had the decorating in the house finished right on schedule for Christmas.  We had a lovely family time over the holidays and lots of lovely days out too.  In February I became an Aunty to Little E, who has very quickly become a big part of the family and Miss B absolutely adores her. Which is good given that the biggest news is that later this year we will become a family of 4 🙂

Baby B is due at the end of August and we are all seriously excited about it.  So far this pregnancy has pretty much mirrored my last, I’ve had no morning sickness at all which is good and I’m keeping really well apart from tiredness.  I’ve had some hip pain and I had some sciatica which thankfully seems to have passed.  Everyone I’ve spoken to with more that one child tells me that your second pregnancy flies in and so far that’s my observation too 🙂

It was always the plan to have more children so we have kept everything belonging to Miss B so there is very little I need to buy. I needed a new pram because the old one weighted a tonne and wouldn’t fit in my boot, so I went on a mission to find something suitable.  After lots of researching I finally found one that I liked and fit my needs and it’s here and ready to go.  Our spare room is very pink at the moment and my plan was to decorate it in neutral tones for the baby but after chatting with my sister, I’ve decided to wait and see if Baby B is a he or a she before redecorating since Baby B will be in our room for the first few months anyway.

Exciting times ahead and I’m so looking forward to having a new addition to the family 🙂

Things still to get and looking for suggestions for a cot bed mattress, crib, Isofix for car seat and a changing bag.

  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Can you borrow a crib ? I only used mine for a month or so and it has been passed around the family with a new mattress for the last few years but it was useful.

    1. Thank you, I’ve actually been looking at them on Gumtree. I know we won’t use it for very long so I’m happy to get a second hand frame and just buy a new mattress. My Mum wants to get us one as a gift and I don’t want her spending a lot on it 🙂
