How to Get Your Home Autumn Ready!


Now that these dark evenings are drawing in it's now getting to the time of year where you need to switch your heating on, and get all your thick fluffy blankets and throws out the cupboard. This is the time of year where I always feel like re-arranging and re-decorating the place. Changing the coloured tones to create more of a warm vibe, but, if I decorated every time it changed season I would both be spending a dump-load of time and money on refashioning the place that I'd never actually stop! 

So I've compiled a list of things I like to do to my home this time of year without breaking the bank and without spending all my spare time painting and moving furniture (which I already got told off for doing once this pregnancy... wasn't me!)

Pregnancy Update - 30 Weeks


30 weeks... 30... I keep saying this but this pregnancy is FLYING by. 9 months as a whole seems like such a long period of time, but its almost over. In a blink of an eye this baby will be here, and another blink he'll be a year old. 

The future feels so scary for us at the moment, you can be as prepared as possible for your first child but I don't think you really know what it's going to be like until the day it happens. It's certainly not going to be as easy as I used to imagine it would be. Back when I was 16, picturing what it would be like to have our own baby one day, and how everything would be perfect. Truth is, nothings perfect, and it never will be.

The Autumn Tag


I was tagged by the lovely Amy at "Mama Mighalls' to do this 'The Autumn Tag'. I love the idea of answering some autumnal-type questions for a nice easy relaxed post. Every blogger says it, but, I adore this time of year. When that hot-sticky-ass weather has died down, and the crispy coloured leaves begin to appear, and I can finally wear my ankle boots again without the feel of judgement, since I wore them almost the whole summer too...

Here are the 10 questions to be answered for this tag. I've tagged my favourite bloggers at the bottom of this list who I think should join in too.

12 Things You SHOULDN'T Say to a Pregnant Woman


Before I became pregnant, I wouldn’t dream of randomly starting up a conversation in the middle of Tesco with a woman, JUST because she was pregnant. You know why? Because I ain’t a nosey fucker and can happily stay out of some stranger’s business – I don’t need to know the ins and outs of her pregnancy, and she doesn’t need to hear my thoughts about it. SIMPLE…?! You would think, so wouldn’t you?!

It’s not just strangers in the supermarket, or old women in caf├ęs, its family and friends too. Some of their comments and suggestions are lovely and I know the advice isn’t supposed to be taken to heart, but come-on… I don’t want to hear it!
So, here’s a list of “Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Pregnant Woman”, read it to protect yourself from the raft of me or any other pregnant woman… we don’t wanna hear it!


 “ARE YOU SURE IT’S NOT TWINS?!”

Yes, I’m bloody sure it isn’t twins you nit-twit. Not sure if you knew but you get these things called scans and you can see inside your womb and can see your baby?! Isn’t that wonderful…?! I’ve seen him 4 times now… there’s only one in there.
