On Sunday, I didn't feel very well so we had a restful day at home
On Monday, daddy came home from work and Thomas tried on his boots
On Tuesday, I made Mary Berry's spiced ginger & treacle Traybake.
On Wednesday, Thomas did some drawing on the iPad
On Thursday, it was my last day at work before maternity leave. I drove to Aylesbury and back for a meeting. Unfortunately, the hire car company decided I was a boy racer and gave me a turbo powered Toyota Yaris. I was glad to get back home at the end of a long day
On Friday, I went to the BBC Good Food Show Winter at the NEC. I briefly met James Martin and had lots of fun sampling loads of great products from lots of lovely producers
Today, we have been shopping to Makro. Thomas insisted on helping to push the trolley round the store
On Sunday, I made Nigel Slater's one pan Sunday dinner. It was delicious!
On Monday, I took Thomas to our local soft play with a friend and her son. Thomas loved it on the slides
On Tuesday, I went for a walk to get a bit of fresh air at work and took this photo of all the leaves on the ground
On Wednesday, Thomas and I tested the Leapfrog Creatively Camera for a review coming up soon on the blog. It is really easy to use. The case makes your iPhone into a child friendly camera for children. Thomas loved it! (He needs to practice his picture taking though!!)
On Thursday, Thomas and Daddy played with Lego, building a 'big house' (according to Thomas!)
On Friday, there was more Lego fun. This time they built towers instead!
Today is my godson Brendon's 6th birthday. We celebrated with chocolate cake which Thomas got all over his face and hands!
I was recently asked if I would like to receive a Project B pregnancy gift box to review. A Project B gift box is a monthly subscription service that you receive from month 4 of your pregnancy up to the month after you give birth. I was very impressed with most of the contents of my month 6 box, however I was slightly disappointed by the stretchmark cream. I really struggled to get it out the bottle and it seemed that you needed a lot of it to cover your bump. Photos of the box are below. I think they are a great treat when you are pregnant. We all need treats occasionally and having a treat through your letterbox every month related to where you are in your pregnancy seems a good idea to me.
Disclosure: I recieved a Project B month 6 box for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own. I was not required to give a positive review.
Wriggly Rascals is a practical and informative website that was set up by Shona who had lots of questions when she was pregnant with her twins. Shona set up the site so that fellow mums and mums to be could get support from each other. The website does this by allowing people to ask questions then asking fellow mums to fill in a survey telling the person who asked the question what they would do. At the moment you can get three months free membership of the site by signing up for quarterly membership for £8.85 every 3 months (that’s only £2.95 a month if you’re suffering from baby brain – like I am LOL!)
Shona recently contacted me and asked me if I would write a guest post on pelvic floor exercises, before, during and after pregnancy. I was happy to oblige as it is a subject I feel quite strongly about especially since I have suffered with a weakened pelvic floor since having Thomas. You can find my guest post here and the pelvic floor exercises survey is here.

Go on, help a fellow mum in need. You know you want to!

On Sunday, we went to Thomas' Grandad ashes site and planted some daffodil bulbs. Read more about it in my post here.
On Monday I tried a gingerbread latte from my local Starbucks
On Tuesday, it was a really cold night and the sky was very clear. I took this photo of the moon on my phone
On Wednesday, Thomas played with my yoga blocks which I have got to help me sit more comfortably on the floor as I am 32 weeks pregnant now
On Thursday, Thomas made a bookmark at nursery
On Friday, at a friend's house, Thomas played the guitar and sang 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'
Today, we have been for a walk through our local church yard.
Last Sunday was Rememberance Sunday. We decided to mark the occasion by placing a Poppy Cross and planting some daffodil bulbs at Thomas' Grandad ashes site (my Father in Law) who died earlier this year. Niall was in army (Mechanical Emgineers) and served during the late 1950's/60's in places such as Germany, Singapore, Cyprus and Burma.
Niall's ashes are buried on the edge of the local cricket ground where he was an umpire for many years. It was a lovely sunny day and Thomas was very keen to get involved helping his Nan (my Mother in Law) and Daddy plant the bulbs. He enjoyed putting the bulbs in the holes and putting the soil back over them. Thomas helped his Nanny push the cross into the ground too. Afterwards, we went back to the clubhouse for a drink and then took Thomas to the park next door for a play in the playground.
Thomas loved playing on the park. He is getting a lot more confident and coming out of his shell now he is two years old. Everything on the park was the perfect size for him and I am sure we will be back again soon. I look forward to going back in the spring when the daffodils are in bloom and show Thomas' little brother where his Grandad is.
