FRIDAY FIVE: A mini collection of my motherhood musings…


THIS time last year I was in labour so as you can imagine, I’m feeling ever so reflective today!

As we make the final preparations for Elsie’s first birthday tomorrow, I’ve been thinking a lot about how far we’ve come as a family and how being pregnant now seems like such a long time ago.

So with is in mind – and because I’ve still got lots of birthday stuff to do (!) – here are five ‘blasts from the past’. Five of my favourite pieces that I’ve written about pregnancy and motherhood to date.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

  • My first trimester experience – This seems like a zillion years ago now, but here I am talking about how it was for me. (Thankfully it got easier!)
  • Waiting for Bean – Who knew our ‘bean’ would be such a beautiful little girl?!

Finally, to beautiful Elsie :

Happy 1st Birthday pumpkin girl! You have brought so much joy into so many lives.  Thank you for making the last year, the best year yet. I love you. X

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend in the sunshine! Think of us, partying and eating lots of cake!

Till the next time, it’s always good to reflect.
