Babywatch has moved to a new level. Words do not describe the joy and awe and sheer exhaustion and contentment. I’m taking a little break from blogging (as you may have guessed) to get our expanding family settled in. So I won’t be blogging as often as I have been of late. So please bear with me. Hopefully it won’t be for too long. Now. … Continue reading Moving Up A Level
Oh blogging land. How I have missed you. I have thought of you often. Thought, “That would make a great post!” Or “Such and such a reader would love to see this”. But finding the time and energy has been tough going. I have been struggling with antenatal depression during this pregnancy. I didn’t even know it was a thing until it overwhelmed me.

Oh blog of mine. How I have missed you. But where have I been? Nowhere. Just here. But, I have a small confession to make. We got Netflix. I love it and hate it. I find myself sitting down for a break and saying I’ll just watch one episode. Three hours later, it’s well past my bedtime, the washing isn’t hung up or the laundry … Continue reading Confession Time
The Little Paddler is very concerned. About people in general. When she gets on the phone to my friend, she wants to know is his mam OK.

Its not enough to ask it once … Continue reading Are You OK?
