The reason for my absence – A little announcement

Ok, so the title is misleading, the announcement is a pretty big one, but the subject of the announcement is rather small! You may have noticed that I’ve been very, very absent from the blog for quite some time, now, and I feel really bad about that but I’ve been so so poorly – I’ve been so sick, barely able to eat and have had little to no energy so it’s been so difficult to try and get anything done. 

And this is the reason why…

This little one is due in February 2016 and has been making me very very poorly! I had a slightly better day, yesterday, so was hoping to come out of it but seem to be back to square one today. I’m really behind on a handful of posts that I’m working on, with some companies, but they’ve been amazingly understanding and I’m hoping that I’ll be better soon so I can get them done and share them with you. 
We had to go to town, yesterday, as we needed to order Ethan’s new glasses (well we needed to do this weeks ago but he and I both spent two weeks with stomach bugs, yes, on top of morning sickness, I’m soo lucky) so whilst we were in town we looked around for a little outfit for the baby. We tried a few places, discovered that our local Mothercare is gone (?!), and finally ended up finding this cute little set in TK Maxx which has a sleep suit, vest, wee trousers, hat, bib and socks all for £9.99 and all with elephants and/or stars on in cream and grey. 
Without knowing if we’re having a boy or girl it’s hard to know how much to get as we’ll re-use lots of Ethan’s if we have a boy (though we’ll still re-use plenty with a girl but I’ll want to get some pretty pretty things to add to the collection too) so when my Mum went to Tesco she got something super practical for us, but regardless of it not being something cute and ‘aww’ it is really nice that my Mum was excited enough to pick us up some bits. 
I’m 11 weeks and 5 days pregnant, today, so it could be a while before the sickness goes but I am hoping it’s soon! We have a scan booked for the 12th September as we really want to find out if it’s a girl or a boy, can’t wait to let everyone know!

So that’s why I’ve not been around, and why it might be a little while before I’m back – Even typing all this up has me feeling worn out, the lack of food means that my energy reserves are horrendous so taking photos and sitting up with the laptop is just a bit much until I’m  better, which will be soon I hope!

    Congratulations, Laura and family 🙂 Hope you start to feel better soon. It must've been difficult, with being a mum already as well.
