I’d just like to thank…….


Oof, bit slow on this one but I have been nominated for a little award! The Liebster award is a really great idea where bloggers nominate other smalls blogs which they like or are inspired by in one way or another. The lovely Charlotte and Lil over at I’m Only Saying What You’re Thinking nominated me last month and due to the crazy amount of babies being either conceived or being born, my blog has been a little abandoned. Sorry blog.

“The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 300 followers and the rules of the award is that the nominee must link back to whoever awarded them, write 11 random facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions from the award giver, and then nominate another 11 bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer. It’s a great way for new and undiscovered bloggers to meet new people, get more followers and find some blogs that they want to follow.”
1. What’s your favourite thing to do when you have time alone?
It sounds really shallow, but having a mani/pedi is a little luxury I treat myself once a month in my local nail bar. Even on a wet rainy day I love going in, admiring the rainbow of little glass bottles of varnishes. Just an hour is all I need to clear my head whilst my hand and feet are rubbed, massaged and painted. My colour choice always depends on my mood, yesterday I went for ‘Cajun Shrimp’ bright enough to get me in the mood for Summer. (Summer, where are you?)
2. If you could move to any place in the world, where would it be?
London where I live! I couldn’t leave all my family and friends despite the crap weather I still think it’s the best city in the world.
3. What item will you be coveting for the new season?
A classic mac. I’ve never owned one and every Spring I think I must invest in one, they look so sleek and stylish and never date.
4. What’s your favourite season?
Summer for sure, the days are lighter and warmer, I love being in the park past 6pm having picnics with friends whilst the girls play for hours, the smell of Summer and fresh air on their sun kissed skin is heavenly. The sun really is the source of all happiness.
5. Drink of choice?
Red wine, and G&T’s.
6. A childhood memory?
Christmas day aged 6 getting a doll house, it had working lights I can’t wait to pass it on to my girls.
7. Tea or coffee?
8. What’s your favourite dish to cook?
Any curry, Thai, Sri Lankan or Indian I just love all the spices and flavours that ooze through the kitchen.
9. Favourite TV programme?
10. Celeb crush?
Ryan Gosling obvs but there’s something about Harry Styles I just can’t not stare into them (did I just admit that?)
11. What 5 people (dead or alive) would you invite to a dinner party?
Harry Styles (just to stare at)
Cherry Healey (for style tips)
Mary Berry (she’d bring desert, obvs)
My bff Ruth and her bff Polly cos together they are hilarious!
Right I nominate

1. What did you have for breakfast today?
2. First album bought?

  1. As a second year student midwife, I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog! Very witty and also very informative, always good for a student! So, well done on the nomination!

      • Training is a bit like pregnancy! Peaks and troughs. I love being on placement but I find the academic side really tough. It will all be worth it in the end though! I have 2 children too so it is quite nice to see how others, like yourself, manage it all!

      • I trained before I had kids but I can’t imagine how hard it must be, except the actual job is more emotionally demanding when you qualify. But it really is the best job in the world! (Sorry Emmy)

      • Ha! And there was me thinking I could see a glimmer of hope! I come across very few midwives who don’t respect the position they are in and say the same of the job as you. I think that contributes to my passion! Is there any difference in how you empathise with women now, than when you didn’t have children? I hope you don’t mind me asking but I find I am always asked by women during their labour, if I have any children and some girls in my cohort who have not got children, feel really embarrassed when asked and have to say no. Personally, it would not bother me in the slightest and I have never asked my midwife! but wondered if it had changed your perceptions particularly with when coping with pain?
