  • Goodbye Forever & Hello Darling, you

    Five years ago, I created a blogspot account and called it The Awkward Blog. I didn’t give much thought as to what my end goal was, in fact, I don’t think I really had one at that point. I just wanted to do it. It’s been five years of London blogging. Five years of afternoon… View Post

  • And Ava makes 3

    And, boom there she is! Ava Emme, born on the 17th May NOT a Godzilla baby but a respectable 7 pounder. My birth story will surface one day, but I will say it was a mostly positive story and definitely the most hardest and toughest thing I've ever done in my life. Thank you Midwives!… View Post

  • Pregnancy Diaries | Weeks 34-37

    So the nursery is mostly finished (no sign of the cot arriving any time soon, but that's not urgent) I've stocked up on nappies, water wipes and have put away more cute little rolls of sleepsuits and babygro's than I can count. My bag is packed and ready to go. There's not much left to do… View Post

  • Cowshed’s Udderly Gorgeous Maternity Massage

    For my birthday last year, Robin bought me a voucher for a full body maternity massage at Cowshed- specifically, the Udderly Gorgeous Full Body massage. I decided to save it for when I really needed it, which turns out, is right about now! Seven months of pregnancy has given me a basketball belly and an… View Post

  • Three years ago today🤙🏼
  • It’s official now- I’ve called time on the Awkward Blog. It felt like a natural end to a very busy five year old blog. But it’s not a goodbye to blogging! Just a chance to open a new book and start fresh on a blank page. Me and missy here, we’ve got some things to write out (mostly at 1 in the morning, when she’s fast asleep, and with Suits on in the background) Darling, you. A new blog. See you there? (P.S still in our pyjamas at noon. That’s how we roll round here)
  • 12 weeks! We’ve hit 12 weeks! Time has flown by 😮 We’ve had first real chuckles (at a red balloon wealding dragon on Baby TV 🙄) a few extra leg rolls, and we’ve started to introduce her to her new crib- think she likes it? I put her down for naps in there and hopefully by some time in Autumn she’ll be sleeping in there full time. On one hand I’ll be glad to get my bedroom back to normal but on the other hand, I’ll miss those moments when everyone is all snuggled down at bedtime - cats at my feet and baby by my side.
  • Finally got my hands on one of those big Aldi garden candles that in no way shape or smell resemble Diptyque 😉 Spent most of the night waking up to a fussing and poorly post jab baby so this morning is sponsored by all of the coffee! I’m so glad it’s Friday- by the time the work week wraps up, I am one tired mumma and look forward to the weekend when I can tag team baby duties with Robin.
  • But William Morris, what if your mum is obsessed with gifting you Tupperware? Don’t mind us, just buggying around E17 today.
  • “Not again Muuuuuuum!” - I said it before and I’ll say it again, I REALLY like 3 months! So inquisitive, playful and luckily, not yet mobile 😆 This little lady has a full schedule this week, I swear she’s got more of a social calendar than I have ever had as an adult!
  • Airplanes with Auntie Ismay! Someone’s been a busy bee this week! Meeting lots of her aunties and uncles and getting spoilt- lots of squishes ❤️ She’ll be shocked when it’s back to hanging with just me again!
