Wedding Bells Pt 2: It’s All About Us

Last time I wrote about the wedding (see Wedding Bells: Dilemmas and Complications) I had no idea what kind of wedding I wanted. I had no idea who I wanted there, where I wanted it to be. Really I just had no idea. Now I can safely say we have a plan. Sort of. Originally … Continue reading Wedding Bells Pt 2: It’s All About Us

Lentil at 1 Month

Well I think it's safe to say that having a baby really does change everything, and yet some things dont seem to change at all. For example, my sleep patterns from the month before Lentil was born give me just under 7 hours of sleep every night on average: But in the month immediately after … Continue reading Lentil at 1 Month

Life Insurance

With Lentil due to be born any day, and after lengthy discussions, we decided life insurance might be a good idea. What started out as a good idea has rapidly become a major headache. It turns out that life insurance comparison quotes are nothing like that of car insurance. With cars you simple head over … Continue reading Life Insurance

The Baby Bedroom Bonanza Pt 2

Well, that was fun. Two beds dismantled, one moved to another room and then re-assembled, the other disposed of (more or less), one cot built, and various bits of sorting out sorted out. Ginger came round to help, for which I am so very grateful, there is no way I would have achieved it all … Continue reading The Baby Bedroom Bonanza Pt 2
