AD – Collaborative post Christmas and New Year is well and truly over and it’s time to start looking forward to other, more exciting events! Wedding season will be in full swing soon and I have recently been showing Erin pictures from our wedding from back in 2013. She loves seeing pictures of things we’ve done and she especially loves our wedding photos because they’re so beautiful. This, in part, was due to the location of where we got married. We got married abroad and although our choice of venue was not as vast as many
AD | Collaborative post When you become a family it’s easy to let time get away from you. Being so busy all of the time means that it’s hard to switch off sometimes. Both John and I are guilty of not taking enough time for ourselves and we certainly don’t take enough time as a couple. Now that summer has finally arrived we are trying to make the most of being at home together as we’re not able to go out on an evening when Erin is in bed. The evenings are much lighter during
Now, if you’re spending Valentine’s Day with a loved one this year then a great way to do this is to curl up and watch a movie together. Traditionally these should be romantic films but they don’t really have to be if you don’t want them to be. I’m sure me and John have watched horror films in past years. Still, with romance in the air, here are 5 of my favourite films to watch this Valentine’s Day. Pretty Woman I think this was probably one of the first real films that I remember watching.
John and I never really end up doing too much for Valentine’s Day. I remember one of our first together, back when I lived in Nottingham and he lived here in Norfolk. We spent the weekend in Norwich in an apartment and I was ill for most of it with the flu. Since then, we’ve never really made a big deal of it or done anything too extravagant. Now that we have Erin to think about, bills to pay and nursery fees to find, we really don’t have much money to spend on each other
If you’ve been following either here or on Facebook for some time now, you’ll probably know that Erin’s birth was pretty shit. In fact, my whole pregnancy was less than perfect and I hated near enough every day of it. I think it’s really important to talk about birth trauma. I don’t think I did enough talking about it after it happened and I let some things fester for month and months before I finally broke down and admitted that I needed help. Erin had stopped growing so my doctor at the hospital thought it
It’s no secret that my relationship with John has changed quite a lot since we had Erin. I have spoken about Erin’s horrendous birth and the trouble that came afterwards. I have spoken about the lack of support and having no one around to help in those early days as all of my family live away. I have also spoken about my desperate need to be sterilised and how the NHS has failed me in this desire. All of these things have changed both me and my relationship with John. Erin is now 21 months
