Cindy Alfino over at 3 Kids, 2 Dogs, 1 Old House recently blogged about a 5 Minute Face tutorial. As someone who only wears makeup to special occasions (read, weddings) I didn't pay any mind to it. I've never had to wear makeup to cover up blemishes, I've never had problem skin any time in my life, … Continue reading Trying out Cindy’s 5 Minute Face
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Matthew doesn’t want to eat food. He will ask for biscuits (he doesn’t eat chips so his savoury snack is Bakers Mini Cheddars), sweets, Oros, etc. The minute I give him food, he turns his nose up at it and refuses to eat. I have since taken to only giving … Continue reading Who needs food anyway?
We had an amazing first birthday party for Ethan on Saturday. The weather was simply beautiful for a winter's day in mid August. Everyone had loads of fun, I think I may have had the most fun though. Planning parties and doing the DIY's are my most favourite part. Ok, no more talking, here's the … Continue reading Party and photos

The day of your birth, although it wasn’t the happiest of births because of my doctor, it was one of my happiest moments. Hearing your cry for the first time a year ago brought a lump to my … Continue reading Ethan’s first birthday

I have had my learners’ licence 4 times now. I have gone to pass out once and was so traumatised … Continue reading Drivers Licence (or lack thereof)
How would you feel if your 1 year old is sick and you have to go to work? I know that I feel terrible and I feel like crying every 5 minutes. I can’t stop thinking about him and wondering how he’s doing. Let’s just backtrack a bit…. Firstly, ok Ethan is not yet a … Continue reading A sick baby and so much guilt
It's really hard writing this. I don't know where to start to do justice to this story. I don't want to portray this as a bad experience when such a wonderful gift was given to us in the end. But I do want to be honest and maybe someone can learn something from my experience. … Continue reading Ethan’s Birth Story
Matthew was born at 17:05 on 21 January 2011. I started my maternity leave on 1 January after weeks of looking forward to being home. Unfortunately, I was at home for 3 weeks before I went into labour. Lovely! 3 weeks of just lazing around and not worrying (much) about anything, except having to cut … Continue reading Matthew’s birth story
So yes, this isn't my first blog but I am hoping it will be my last. I have tried so hard to keep my previous blog up to date, but after Ethan's birth I lost track and life got in the way. I originally started my blog to capture memories of my pregnancy for me to … Continue reading Hello world! Again!
