Facebook is dangerous. There I said it. Since embarking on parenthood I’ve been joining lots of different ‘support’ groups, to speak to other mums and to take my worries away if I ever have any. But in all honesty? The majority of these groups just fill me with more worry, and I’m pretty sure it’s […]Read More #MumLife: The mum world of social media
I have so much I need to get down on (virtual) paper. But no idea where to start. What do I even want to say? Do I even want/need to write it? I’m in a funk and I don’t know how to snap out of it. All I’ll say is. There is a lot more […]Read More Where do I even start?

So Aria is 6 weeks old now, and let me tell you. I have learnt quite a bit in the last few weeks! The biggest thing I have learnt though, is that I have literally no idea what I am doing! Okay, that’s a bit of an over exaggeration. I know the basics. Make sure […]Read More #MumLife: I have no idea what I’m doing!

Finally, the wait was over! Our little bundle of joy Aria Lily Legg was born on Monday 6th March 2017 at 18:12 pm. After a very speedy labour of only 2hrs25 minutes including 32 minutes worth of pushing, our darling daughter flew out and down the bed! I’m planning to film a labour and birth story […]Read More Welcome Princess Aria!

We now pretty much […]Read More The waiting game
