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…

I guess its because I could never imagine having that level of responsibility,…

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…
