What’s in my Storksak Elizabeth changing bag | Blogtober 16

Storksak Elizabeth change bag
A couple of days ago I introduced you to my beautiful Storksak Elizabeth changing bag. Today you get a sneak peak inside it. This is what I carry around with me day after day in my changing bag. Luckily my bag is a spacious lovely thing, big enough to carry around everything I need for me and Harrison on the average day out. For Harrison: A nappy (he uses gnappies, so it is that lovely red pant you can see on the bottom left) Wet wipes Wet bag for cloth nappy Nappy rash ... Continue Reading

What I can’t live without? | Blogtober 16

For day 10 of Blogtober 16 I was asked, what is the one thing I can't live without. I hate that this is my answer but the one thing I can't live without is my phone. The shame. Obviously there are more emotional answers like my son, my partner, my mum etc etc. But on a practical level I could not live without my phone! My phone performs so many different roles in my life, it's a real life line. One aspect that makes my phone indispensable to me is that fact that it is my camera. In ... Continue Reading

Must-watch boxsets with a newborn | Blogtober 16

These days I try to limit how much the tv is on around the house during the day when Harrison is around. (Note I said 'try to', I don't actually succeed anywhere near as much as I would like to).

When I was pregnant with Harrison I decided this was the pivotal moment in life that I would always want to look back on so I started making YouTube vlogs documenting my pregnancy. After pregnancy I had grand plans of uploading regularly. Strangely enough that is ... Continue Reading

Career planned as a child | Blogtober ’16 Day 5

What career did I have planned as a child? As a child I wanted to be a midwife, that then changed to lawyer when I watched Legally Blonde! Standard, Reese Witherspoon infatuation to blame then. Then in my teens was when I became interested in mental health and decided that's the field I want to work in, have studied for and plan to continue with. However, I must admit since falling pregnant with Harrison I have thought about midwifery as a career several times. I find pregnancy and child ... Continue Reading

Share a secret | Blogtober ’16 Day 4

Share a secret about yourself. This was probably the trickiest this month to think of what to write about. As a new blogger I have been using the themes as inspiration as posts to let my readers find out more about me. This topic should have been a great one to do this with. But, having said that, I'm not about to share any deep, dark secrets about myself for this! What can I share that is actually appropriate to put out there on the Internet?! This is more of an embarrassing story than ... Continue Reading
