No, I can’t believe it either, but it is that time again! Time for a quick pregnancy update. This morning as I walked back to my car after dropping Elsie off at school, I realised that I’ve now officially got the pregnancy waddle. Yep, walking has become somewhat more challenging as this bump seems to be getting bigger by the minute, never mind day. (Just call me Katie Duck.) I’m
SANTA visits have come on a bit since we were children haven’t they? Gone are the days when you could only meet the main festive man in your local shopping centre or perhaps at primary school if you were lucky. For today, you can meet him in all kinds of places and even over breakfast! Which is exactly what happened to Elsie last weekend (and us!), as we tried out
WE all know that women’s bodies are held to the kind of scrutiny that would make lesser mortals squirm. It’s something I’ve spoken about before on here and it’s something that personally, drives me potty.

Every day she comes home from school and wants to practice her letters, do some drawing or tell me about the new phonics she has learned that
CAPTURING my growing bump in all of its glory is something I’ve always wanted to do in this pregnancy. I had a maternity shoot when I was pregnant with Elsie and second time around, I knew I wanted to have some special photographs taken again to remind me of this incredibly happy time. Particularly as this pregnancy has gone by so quickly! Being pregnant again for the second time has been
TIME is continuing to whizz by quicker than I’m comfortable with! On Friday I had my anti D jab (something you need to have if your blood group is rhesus negative) and today marks the first day of my 29th week. Crikey!
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
