Coronavirus Concerns

What is Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what does it mean for me? By now we are all well aware of what Coronavirus is. At least the basics and the danger, if not the specific details. We are all aware of the lock-downs in place in various countries, and the pandemic status applied by the WHO. But … Continue reading Coronavirus Concerns

And now for something completely the same…

Well, it's been a while since my last post. Life gets in the way of everything I guess. I've had a lot on I suppose, which hopefully I will be able to write about in a few other posts assuming I have the time. At the moment I feel the main thing I need to … Continue reading And now for something completely the same…

The Male Time of the Month

I think that to say every man has his own time of the month would be fair. When you boil down the biology, the female menstrual cycle is caused by a change in hormones, as such, a man can have his own cycle based on the variances of his hormones. I personally would say that … Continue reading The Male Time of the Month

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

The Arrival of Lentil

It took a while, but she's finally here. My little Lentil. Born on 28th December 2018 at 16:21 by c-section and weighing 9lbs 2oz! We went in to the hospital on Boxing Day for the induction, and after a difficult labour (52 hours total) she was finally out. Buttercup endured hell with this birth. Lots … Continue reading The Arrival of Lentil

Pregnancy Jitters Pt 2

Well, after our scare the other day ( Pregnant Jitters ) Buttercup was not induced as the ward was full and actually closed to new arrivals / inductions. As Lentils movements were back to normal, and the midwives and doctors were happy with everything, we were actually discharged, and we were told that Buttercup would … Continue reading Pregnancy Jitters Pt 2

Pregnancy Jitters

Today began, and continued, as a normal Friday would. We woke up, we had breakfast and coffee, got dressed went to work. Things were going pretty well up to a certain point. I had just taken my Nth call of the day, chatting with a nice lady about a policy she had recently purchased, explained … Continue reading Pregnancy Jitters

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

The Baby Bedroom Bonanza

Well this is it. With only a short while to go (33 days at the time of writing this post), it is time for Buttercup and I to get the room for Lentil sorted out. Lentil is due to arrive on 29th December, and therefore won't actually need their own room until about June, but … Continue reading The Baby Bedroom Bonanza
