Another week begins. One week until half term (for hubs and Ethan). Two weeks until I have a couple of days off to prep for Christmas and, oh, the baby! And of course, there’s Halloween, bonfire parties, firework night, and the big countdown to Christmas and our little present. Somebody pinch me.
What a fab day we’ve had at @draytonmanorpark 🎢 Hubs and Ethan got to enjoy so many rides, the weather was great, it wasn’t too busy at all, we rode on Thomas, visited the zoo, saw the dinosaurs and got into the spirit of Halloween too 🎃 Great fun, and Ethan’s face in the first photo says it all. Well worth a visit to #moretrickthantreat before the event ends on 1st November #halftermideas #dmp #gifted
It’s a beautiful day @draytonmanorpark and we’re here enjoying the first #moretrickthantreat weekend, seeing how the park and #ThomasLand has been taken over by spooky delights and Halloween features 🎃 Ethan’s already on his fourth ride as it’s not too busy at all and he has absolutely no fear. This mama is enjoying the sunshine and watching her big guy and little guy having so much fun 🎢 Follow my stories on Insta for updates from our day 😃 #dmp #draytonmanor #draytonmanorpark #draytonmanorthemepark #daysoutwithkids #daysoutwiththekids #midlandsdaysout #daysoutmidlands #gifted
3 3 W E E K S • Very much in countdown mode as the realisation we are having a baby hits home... I’m uncomfortable sitting in the armchair in the evenings, as baby feels low and my lack of maternity PJ’s means my normal nightwear doesn’t fit well and adds to the discomfort. Pretty much living in maternity leggings too, my maternity jeans add too much pressure under my bump but if I buy bigger, they feel like they’re falling down 🤦🏼♀️ Lying down is best, but I am waking more in the night for no real reason. Preparing for baby, perhaps? I’m swotting up, practicing my breathing and #hypnobirthing techniques and I am going to try and rest more in general. #bumppic #33weekspregnant
Friday evening. Feet up. Family time. 🙌
Happy Friday everyone. Hope you’re hanging in there! I’ve got to keep on going today and tomorrow before I can put my feet up for a rest but hoping that I can start getting things sorted at work soon to prepare in advance for my maternity leave, should this bump decide to surprise us early. Then in a couple of weeks I can do some nesting, and Christmas shopping too (need to get it done and wrapped so there’s nothing to worry about when baby arrives), with a few well earned days off. #preparingforbaby #preparingformaternityleave #myautumnhome #myhomethismonth #myhomeinoctober #pumpkinspam
The weekend is nearly here and I really could do with some rest. But alas, I’m working on Saturday and we do have a fun filled day planned on Sunday, so need to muster some energy to keep on going. Little pick me ups like my fave @thebodyshop facial oil help me feel a bit better. As does my bed 🛏 💤
My big and little pumpkin, all in one photo, and a whole lot of love 🧡 The excitement it starting to set in, although a bit of panicking about getting some things sorted, especially work related, and I know I need to sow down sooner rather than later. As well as the second trimester update I shared earlier this week, today there’s a post all about how I’m feeling and getting along with a 32 week bump, if you fancy catching up 🤰🏼 #32weekspregnant #pregnancyupdate #pregnancyblogger
