This week we ticked over 13 weeks pregnant with our newest bundle of joy! While I am beyond excited and truly can’t wait for our addition to join us, I would be lying if I said the last five weeks haven’t been testing.
I’m just going to put it out there – morning sickness sucks! I am sick most days and it lasts all day! Work feels long and I’m tired all the time. I’m napping when Rhemy is and I am finding it difficult to keep on top of my uni and housework. So to my friends I’m sorry I’m always tired, my house a mess and my mind a jumble. I’ll come good, I promise!
I’ve come to the conclusion that pregnany doesn’t agree with me and that’s okay. When I was younger I had a water bottle that I used when playing sport that had “no pain, no gain” printed on the side of it. Pregnancy for me reminds me of that quote. The gain I get out of it is totally worth it and something I definitely don’t take for granted! But I’d be kidding myself if I said there wasn’t some kind of “pain” and that’s not even considering the actual birth!
How’d you get on? Was pregnancy a breeze for you or did you vomit for 30 weeks?
Do you have any morning sickness remedies? Cause please share them if you do!
Until next time,
So happy, excited and busting to announce that Rhemy, Sean and I are welcoming baby #2 to our family. Our wonderful bundle of joy will be joining us November 2016!
Here’s a quick debrief: No it certainly wasn’t planned but yes we definitely want another! I’ve been sick as all hell and I’m already starting to show. Rhemy doesn’t have any idea but soon enough she’ll have to share us and a part of me thinks she’ll love it and another part thinks I’m kidding myself.
Today I just wanted to announce our exciting news, but I will be sharing my journey as we go! Wish us luck 🙊
Until next time
I seen this posted on another website a few months ago and I thought it was such an amazing idea! So here we go, I’m going to share with you all 9 songs I’ll listen to until the day I die and why!
1. Kiss – Rock N Roll All Nite: My dads favourite band when I was growing up was Kiss. I never really got it when I was younger but you hear something enough, you become used to it. However when I was a teenager I went to their concert with my family and now the song has such a sentimental value to me that I actually really like it.
2. Blondie – One way or another: Another memory from when I was growing up, we’d have sing alongs in the car when we travelled and my mum was a Blondie fan, to be honest I always liked to sing along too!
3. Queen – Fat bottomed girls: I have a memory of me and my mum dancing around in our kitchen to this song. It was such fun and one we always laughed along to. It was our song, as we are of the pear body shape!
4. Aerosmith – I don’t wanna miss a thing: When I was in Vegas we went and seen Aerosmith. They were incredible! It certainly helps that this is the song me and my husband danced to at our wedding. It brings back such lovely memories.
5. The Temptation – My girl: Like so many girls my age, this was a song my dad sang to me when I was young. It also helps that this was also one of my favourite movies!
6. Brian McKnight – Marry your daughter: I walked down the aisle to this song, enough of a reason right there. The lyrics get me every single time!
7. ABBA – Waterloo: Mum loves ABBA, I remember it playing as part of her “cleaning soundtrack” while I didn’t help clean, I certainly helped sing and bop along!
8. Axiom – A little ray of sunshine: When Rhemy was born my grandparents came to see us and on the way they had heard this song and thought it was so appropriate. As soon as I listened to it, I knew it was too.
9. Heartland – I loved her first: I danced with my dad to this song at my wedding. What a tear jerker this song turned out to be!
Now your turn, share with my songs that you will listen to until the day you die and why?! It was so fun looking down memory lane and I know I have missed some out! I probably could have done 20 songs but ain’t nobody got time for that 😂.
Till next time,

I thought seeing as today is Mother’s Day, I would share with you all what being a mother truly means to me.
I am forever grateful for having Rhemy in my life as I realise how difficult it can be for some amazing ladies to have the children they deeply desire. I am extremely lucky and have been blessed with a happy and healthy baby girl. One who keeps me on my toes, challenges me and makes me laugh on the daily. She is my biggest achievement in life and the one person I am most proud of.
I always knew I wanted to be a mother, I knew I would love it, try to to excel at it and learn from it every single day. And I was right, so very right! Some days are hard, Rhemy doesn’t want to nap, would rather cry about not much and cling to me for the entire day. Other days we play and laugh and she sleeps for 4 hours. Without those “hard” days, I wouldn’t truly appreciate the “good” days, I wouldn’t get hour long cuddles and I wouldn’t want to share her with her father when he got home from work.
My daughter is my legacy, my family. She is my heart wandering around outside my body. I never knew what it was like to love someone so much until she came along.. and that is what being a mother means to me!
