Little Rocco is almost nine months old!
Well another week has passed and I can’t believe it’s August already… Every so often I get an email from Baby Centre and today I got one saying ‘Your Baby – 8 months and 3 weeks’. So almost 9 months on and little Rocco is pulling himself up on the furniture and saying ‘up, up, up’! It’s also really cute when I say clap your hands and he does. Babies really understand everything and he is certainly taking it all in.
So talking of milestones, Prince George reached a big milestone, his first birthday on 22nd July. I spent the royal celebrations just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace with Rocco and his friend Faith, (Michelle Heaton’s gorgeous daughter). Rocco and I were honoured to be part of the ‘Royal Ride’ that was sponsored by SmarTrike. I’m a big fan of their bikes which are suitable for children up to the age of three. The great thing about them is; for now I can push and control Rocco, but as he gets older he will be able to steer the bike himself. He really loves it and thoroughly enjoyed his day in London.
Something else Rocco is really loving at the moment are his wooden toys from Boikido. His favourite thing is playing his xylophone. He seems to enjoy music a great deal, and my dad (who was once Uncle Bulgaria in the Wombles) is planning on teaching him to play the drums when he is old enough… so we have all the noise to look forward to.
Last week I had a bit of beauty pampering. I had a little photo shoot with Fresh Minerals Make up, which will be in HELLO! magazine soon and I also had a lovely calgel manicure and pedicure with my favourite colour! The gel polish lasts for 3 to 4 weeks, and it doesn’t chip or damage your nails. The lovely Robyn came to my house and did my nails whilst Rocco had a nap.
This week (as I write this) I am back on the road filming. I’m currently in Exeter and later this week I will be in Leeds so if you see me out and about come and say hi! The shopping in Exeter is brilliant. I’ve purchased a few dresses in Oasis for my next stint of filming abroad with A Place in the Sun and I have also purchased some great dresses from Lipsy that have gorgeous prints.
Whilst I’m away from home, I tend to relax in the evening and watch TV as I can’t do any work on the house… Relaxing and switching off is a rarity for me so it was great last night getting to watch one of my favourite TV shows Long Lost Family. It was a pretty emotional evening in my rental apartment to say the least…
Right I had better get back to filming now, I’ve got properties to view and people to meet! I hope you have a great rest of the week and as always, thanks for reading my blog.
Lots of love
