How I’ve missed thee!

Well hello there strangers! Finding the time to blog has been impossible of late but luckily I’ve managed to grab a few spare minutes to write, post, DO something with this ol’ neglected blog of mine. Elsie (my beautiful little lady) is of course my priority now, which means that my days and nights are spent doing the most important job in the world – being a Mum. I’ve also

A very special announcement…

BEAN has arrived! Our beautiful daughter Elsie Florence Portman was born over a month ago on 20th July at 5.50am after a long and somewhat challenging 24 hour labour. She didn’t make things easy that’s for sure, but I can wholeheartedly say that bringing her safely into the world was the best moment of my life and I’d do it all again in a New York minute. I’ve been so

Waiting for Bean…

Very soon life is going to change. In fact, everything is going to completely change for my husband and I.

Yesterday….

I did something I almost never do. I woke up, got dressed and spent the day doing absolutely NOTHING. I had a list of jobs to do as long as my arm but didn’t do any of them. After getting a rubbish night’s sleep (the joys of late pregnancy) and feeling a bit under the weather, I decided to listen to my body and did exactly what it told me
