Jumpsuit – Anthropologie

Hello team, from a very hot and sticky London. I love the heat, but I love it mostly in countries that are geared up for it. Countries with air conditioning. You know, small stuff.

But I am not complaining. I really am not. If I was going to pick a Summer to begin life as a new mum, it would be this one. I, along with my new found NCT chums, can’t quite believe our luck. We’ve been hitting all our favourite local haunts, sipping iced this and that and revelling in the balmy shade with our sleeping babies (HA HA HA HA HA HA).

Possibly, the best competition ever. (EVER).
Thank you, Cadbury.

I love chocolate. I know this isn’t new information for you, but if there were ever a time to reiterate this, it is now. Chocolate has seen me through some of my darkest hours – romantic break ups, exams (cramming, taking, exam-results-waiting…) and more recently, sitting up for hours each night with my newborn, Isabelle, bouncing on an exercise ball, jiggling her like a lunatic (me, not her) and nibbling chocolate into the wee hours and beyond…

May the 4th be with you, Isabelle

Baby

When your little one decides to be nearly 3 weeks early, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it 💛 I had no idea how much extra love I had hiding in my pockets… it turns out, I’m overflowing and it’s completely overwhelming. Welcome to the world, Isabelle Rose 💕

Born May 4th, 2018. She is an actual Jedi.

(I’m going to be a little quiet here for a while, but I’ll be back. Just like Arnie. But with more poo).

Finally, FINALLY, we are getting there.

Having moved out of our house for 4 months (thank you mum, for having us!) while we smashed up the downstairs for our side return extension… and then returning a few weeks ago to more dust than I have ever seen in my life (it gets everywhere)… then cleaning and cleaning and midwife visits and cleaning… our beautiful, bright, calm and peaceful nursery is finally starting to take shape.

Marry me, Miele
(and a 20% Miele discount code!)

There are ovens. And then there are ovens.

I’ve always had an oven. But I’ve never had this oven. And this Miele oven became my bestie overnight.

The sort of bestie you’d give your last Rolo to. Give your door key to. A proper let-you-proof-read-your-texts-before-you-send-them kinda pal.

For the love of cheese

Cheese-Toastie-Poppy-Loves-15 Being pregnant is pretty great in so many ways, but it can also be a bit of a bummer when it comes to food you can’t guzzle for the duration. Luckily, I’m not much of a drinker so I haven’t missed that cheeky glass of wine or G&T… but what I HAVE missed are things like paté and brie. Ahhhh brie. I’ve missed brie so much I’m considering putting a slab of it into my hospital bag. I’d eat a wedge of it like an apple.
