Beau starts preschool

Beau started preschool at the beginning of Autumn. It’s just a couple of weeks now until the winter-time, so it’s taken me some time to find the words to express how I feel about it.

To be honest, though – I still haven’t found the best words. It has been such a wonderful journey so far – a natural and easy transition for him, and for us – but oh my goodness my emotions. I’ve been all over the place and back again. Continue reading

A Day in the Life

Someday I will look back on these videos and laugh, affectionately, at my novice videography skills. I’ll be grateful I made them, though… because it was a start. And we’ve all got to start somewhere.

Georgie’s birth story

Midnight

I remember waking sometime after midnight, with a sense that something was shifting. I was almost 42 weeks pregnant, so the inevitable had obviously been in my consciousness for some time – but the strange thing about birth is that, even when it could begin at any moment, it always feels so far away. Unimaginable.

So I just lay in bed and waited, with Nick sleeping soundly next to me, and I thought to myself – ‘I’ll just see if that happens again.’ Continue reading
