I’VE got a lovely giveaway for all you book lovers today! ‘Mum’s List’ – one of the most memorable and heart-warming stories of recent years – tells the real story of Singe and Kate, a couple from North Somerset whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. During her last months, Kate created her list, writing down thoughts and memories to help the
CAPTURING my growing bump in all of its glory is something I’ve always wanted to do in this pregnancy.

LIKE so many of you, Elsie and I have been doing all manner of Halloween things this week for half term. On Monday we went pumpkin picking for the first time (which was more fun than I expected!) yesterday we did plenty of Halloween drawings and on Tuesday we made a trip to our local arty place, the Barnsley Civic to see the perfect Halloween performance, The Witch That Couldn’t
