Here you’ll find all things “us”.

Buying a house

It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, but it just never seemed right, or possible. By “right”, I mean, I never felt settled enough in one place to commit the next 20 years to living there. I’ve always been a bit of a loose canon when it comes to relocating, from upping sticks and…

Mum guilt and how to deal with it.

When you get pregnant, people will tell you all the usual things. “Get ready to never sleep again, hope you’re ready to change ALL the nappies, good luck clipping their tiny little nails” the list goes on, but one thing that I was NEVER prepared for was the mum guilt. Good god, the mum guilt.…

Our sweet boy.

So, as usual it’s been a while since we’ve posted on our blog and instead of apologising I’m just going to hold my hands up and say- yep, it’s been a while, no I don’t know when we’ll next post because raising a baby is hard work. The last post was written by Mark and…

How time flies

When this blog started, we had no idea that life would change so much, so quickly. Granted, we’ve been pretty bad at writing posts on the regular (here’s me trying to change that now!), but there’s obviously a good reason for it! It’s amazing to think that this blog is now 18 months old. It…

My Pregnancy Journey

After writing a brief post on how I felt about becoming a mum, I thought I’d do a post on how each trimester of pregnancy has been for me. If we’d been posting at the time, then I would have broken this up into separate posts. However, because I’m now well into the third trimester…

Update on us….

It’s been a while (massive understatement) since Mark and I wrote any blog posts, and I’m so sorry for that. We weren’t really happy with how the blog looked and needed to change it, but just never got around to it. Now that we’re happy with how it looks, I think we’ll both feel more…

Manchester – From us

This isn’t really the idea of our blog, I don’t think either of us ever thought we’d write a post like this, but sometimes you just need to vent your anger, frustrations and upset. This is one of those times. As everyone knows, on Monday night, a tragic event took place in Manchester. A heartless,…

Our relocation story.

After Mark and I had ‘officially’ been together a month or so, he was approached by an old work colleague, and discussions were had about an opening that had arisen. Mark was very excited by this, and I also encouraged him as I knew it would be something that he would enjoy. However, it was…

Project Life

Earlier this year, Mark and I were sat discussing our plans for the next few months, and thinking of anything we wanted to look in to doing. We then started thinking that now would be the perfect time to start some sort of scrapbook, that way for each year we would have one and then…

Welcome to our life. 

So, this is the first in a (hopefully) long list of posts that myself and Mark decided to do. We’ve been in discussion about starting up a joint blog for some time now, and just pushed it to the back of our minds. However, after a glass or two of wine earlier this evening we…
