Dude, where’s my glow?

Me, 15 weeks pregnant: Would you say I’m glowing yet? I’m supposed to get a glow in my second trimester. G: You went quite bright red in the face when you were throwing up earlier? [long pause] Me: I’m hungry. I have honestly never known hunger like this. A few years ago I remember reading [...]

The Story Of Us…so far

There’s nothing better than a bloomin’ good love story at Christmas time. Sarah and David’s story is like a subplot from Love Actually or half of The Holiday (the two best festive romcoms ever, in my humble opinion), it’s sweet and sincere, has just the right amount of luck and ‘can they make it work’ [...]

Dear 2013…

2013, you’ve been pretty bloody amazing, I have to say. If you were a person your hair would be shiny, you’d be wearing great shoes, you wouldn’t get splashed by vans driving through muddy puddle water OR get sunburn. Congratulations on your awesomeness.  2013, you gave me so much. A lot of it I had to work for, I’m not [...]

The year of the yes

I think that anyone who read Emma’s Friend that made me me post was touched by it. It was a post full of love, and it was clear that Emma had been hit very very hard by Lou’s death. So it is so inspiring to read how Emma is choosing to live her life differently, [...]

The Friends that Made Me Me – Merida

It’s been a few months since our last Friend that Made Me Me post, so I was so pleased when this one came up in our inbox (also because it’s brilliant!). This is a story that I hear so often, and one that makes me just a tiny bit envious of all of you who [...]

On friendship

We’ve run a few posts on how babies have affected friendships recently, and I’m sure I’m not the only one for who it’s made me consider more carefully  a) how I behave, and b) how I react, when it comes to friends with, and without, children. I love that Emma has taken the time to [...]
