Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…

What I’ve learnt in the year since Emily was born

Since Emily was born so many things have happened. Amazing things, wonderful things, crazy things. It’s been a brilliant journey and we’re only 15 months in. The past 15 months has flown by at a ridiculous rate. How did we make it through this time without killing each other? But although there’s been moments, it’s…

Emily has a great group of friends 

Emily has a small but great group of friends. All of her friends are similar in ages and mean the world to her. It’s so lovely to see that she has a good little group of friends that she can laugh, play and learn with. Emily is incredibly lucky with the little group that she…

We’re going to Isleworth on Friday

We are going to Isleworth this weekend and I really can’t wait. Although I saw my mum a few weeks ago for Emily’s first birthday in London for lunch, it was only brief for a few hours and not long enough. It was be great to catch up with my niece, sister, grandparents, mum and…

You’ve got a friend in me

When I moved to Ramsgate, I was worried about how many friends I’d make. I didn’t know anyone down here, I made two friends through Netmums prior who lived here, but we mainly just talked and I only met one, who although we’re still friends, she lives in another town. It was a huge worry…

Funny what a difference a year makes 

It really is amazing what can happen in the space of a year. This time last year, I was sitting on my bed in my room listening to the commentator awarding the school kids at sports day in the field next door. I knew very little people, pretty much no one, whilst Sam worked in…

Dear childless friends…

This is a shoutout to all the single friends out there, not a particular individual but the masses, I think you should read and understand. It’s not a personal thing, or maybe it is, I don’t know, but I think this should be heard and all in good reason.  They say after pregnancy making friends…

 I’ve turned into Monica from Friends, help me?!

I’m not joking, I have seriously turned into Monica from Friends. Whilst my penchant for cleaning has always be a little slack, now that I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy, I’ve turned into a bit of a clean crazed madwoman who is instantly looking for things to clean. Some call it the nesting stage,…

Being lonely in pregnancy

The all important question; ‘Does anyone want to be my friend?’ Some people don’t realise how hard it can be. Others think it’s as easy as 1,2,3. But it’s not. I’m in an area where most of the locals tell me to trust no one, good luck meeting people and I’ll apparently make plenty of…

Getting used to a new area

No one said it was going to be easy. Maybe me, maybe I tried to convince myself that it was going to be easier than what it’s actually been. When we planned to move down here, I thought I could continue working away with my recruitment business, find a part time job, make a load…
