Am I boring?

If you ask me what my idea of a good night is, I’d say being at home with my husband. Our girls would be asleep in bed. We’d have a good film on, and perhaps a takeaway too. I’d be laying on the sofa under a blanket next to my husband. Boring? Perhaps, but that’s my idea of a good night! That may change as our children get older. I may push the boat out, and my husband and I may go out for a meal in the evening, perhaps a concert or the cinema etc, but for now a… [Read More]

Our IVF (ICSI) Journey From Start to Finish

When I first started blogging it was a way for me to share our IVF journey. You see when you embark upon IVF, the only people you can really talk to about it is your partner, that’s if you have one, or others who are going through IVF. These are the people who truly understand exactly what you’re going through. At the start of our journey, I was lucky to find an online fertility forum called Fertility Friends. This forum is broken down into various threads so that you can find others who are having the same type of IVF… [Read More]

I love a good pair of pyjamas, don’t you?! I’m the kind of person who’s usually in my pyjamas around 6pm!

Pregnant women average just 5 hours of sleep each night

When I was pregnant with our twins, I always thought of myself as very lucky. I never experienced any morning sickness or other symptoms you’d typically associated with pregnancy. Many people assumed that because I was pregnant with twins, that I’d have all of the symptoms under the sun, including a heavy dose of morning sickness, but nope, nothing! During the later months of pregnancy, I did however, start to suffer with my sleep. I’ve always been the kind of person who is usually asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow, but the last few months of pregnant… [Read More]

Things to consider when replacing your conservatory

Any addition to your home whether it be an extension to make your kitchen bigger or a conservatory for some much needed extra space needs to be considered carefully. It’s a lot of work, and costs can quickly add up if not done correctly, but when it comes to replacing your conservatory, do you know what things you need to look out for? When my husband and I moved into our old home, there was already a conservatory built onto the back of the property. We’d never had a conservatory before so it was a nice bit of added space….

Strengthening Relationships Between Friends and Family

Have you ever sat back and considered all the people you have been in touch with over your life? Deep family relationships, fleeting friendships, counter clerks you see on a regular basis or even your local barman. Faces may spring to mind of relationships past, names that dance on the tip of your tongue, all relationships that were but are now separated by time or distance.  Some relationships come easier than others but may be fleeting, while others are harder to cultivate but offer a greater bond over time. The special people who have in your life you likely spend… [Read More]
