Jonah’s birth story

Mini Mummi was encouraging mums to share their positive birth stories. I’d recently posted Jonah’s birth story on my own blog, so I was very happy to share my story with Mini Mummi! It’s encouraging and healthy for first time mums-to-be to hear positive stories rather than the overly dramatic accounts that often appear on television.

I feel so positive about Jonah’s birth, and I want other ladies to know that even if your birth doesn’t go according to plan, you can still have the most amazing birth experience.

Blogtober 2017 | Day 3 – Car

Funnily enough, today I put a deposit on my very first car! So this topic comes at the perfect time. I actually spent a lot of yesterday researching different makes and models. There’s so much to choose from!

It’s funny how many considerations there are now. I never really needed my own car before, but I always imagined what sort of features I would like if I ever got one. I wanted a cute car, in a nice colour, nothing too big so it’s easy to park. Now, with a little person in tow, those things are out the window. I’m a mum, I need a suitable car. That said, I didn’t want to have a “mum car” – a boring model, with an ugly shape. I still wanted something that’s “me”.
