A whole lot of L-O-V-E…

Hello you gorgeous lot! One topic seemed to dominate the majority of this week – VALENTINE’S DAY! I love the romance of it all, of course I do – I’m a chicklit author, therefore, it’s instilled in me to like anything remotely gooey and sentimental – however, I couldn’t help but be reminded of how I felt at school whenever the day was looming. I was always full of nerves

Trying to find a local bump activity…

As soon as our baby announcement video hit YouTube (and our secret was out) I set about finding ways of having bump fun in my local area. I couldn’t wait to get started. I’d heard and read loads about Aqua Natal, Pregnancy Yoga and a whole host of other wonderful sounding things but they all seemed to take place at least a 45minute drive away. But a quick search on

Birthday Treats and Baby Shower Love!

Hello my lovely readers – how nice of you to join me once again! As I predicted last week, this week has been a busy one – not only did I celebrate my twenty-ninth birthday (that’s right, I’m now in the final year of my twenties – no idea how that happened), I also got shown a whole lot of love by some of the special ladies in my life.

Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming…

For the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy, Tom hated me doing ANYTHING physical – even walking. I’m pretty sure that, given half the chance, he’d have wrapped me in bubblewrap and left me safely in bed for the whole nine months – but let’s face it, that’s unrealistic. Plus, the constant popping of bubbles every time I rolled over would be thoroughly annoying after a while… I’d get terribly cranky. In all seriousness, I was

Getting Prepared with hypnobirthing

When we first announced that we were expecting our first child I had a handful of friends (who are all mothers) get in touch to tell me about hypnobirthing and how wonderful they’d found using the technique during labour. Let’s face facts – we’ve all heard pretty traumatic childbirth stories (people just love sharing them – they revel in the horrified expressions they get in return), so I was ready

Help! I’ve Got A Bump To Dress!

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve been having a great week. It’s been a busy one in our house now that the holidays are over and we’ve had to get back to the daily grind of normal life. On top of that, I hopped over to the Penguin offices this week to talk about book two (which is set to be published May 22nd), there was a 30th birthday meal at Gaucho

Adiós 2013 and a great big welcome to 2014!

Hello everyone I’m not one to wish away the years (life is short and we’ve got to make the most of it), but I’m certainly happy to be welcoming 2014! There’s so much to be looking forward to this year – book two being published, my hubby and the McBusted boys heading off on a blooming awesome tour – and (more exciting than them both put together) BABY FLETCHER ARRIVING! Yes, with less than 12 weeks

Our favourite time of year came with a touch of sadness…

Christmas is always a magical time in our house – my husband starts playing carols immediately after the bonfires of Guy Fawkes night have been extinguished, and the tree is up pretty quickly after that. Both of our families come to ours – and this year they were all looking forward to there being a bump to rub and talk to all day long.     Although, sadly, our Christmas

Is that a duck? No, it’s a human waddling…

Hello everyone My bump isn’t ridiculously big (I still have three months worth of human growing to go), so it came as a huge surprise to find I have started waddling. I wasn’t even aware I was doing it until a guy friend of mine pointed it out when we were taking a stroll. There was no denying that I was swaying from side to side with each step I
