Today is the weekend before my birthday, and so, I have an early present of the best kind. I am giving myself a present from me! Beef rib roast dinner. Awwwww yisss.

I would have taken a picture of the DELICIOUS looking huge piece of rib that I was salivating over before it went in the oven, but I was just too excited about eating it and wanted the cooking part to be over. Hour and a half to go…*watchesclock*

I have gone a bit overboard with veggies too, but hey, it’s my present to myself and WHY NOT do all the vegetables they had in store?

Thankfully husband has invited people, otherwise I would feel a tad guilty. There will still be a lot of leftovers though so this beauty of a feast will feed me for a good few days!

Everything has become about food recently. This could be good or bad depending on whether I get my ass in line (and Marc gets my gym card fixed) and head down to the gym or not. I’ve always been a massive foodie – I defo should have been a chef – but now, I’m hungry ALL THE TIME. The things I want to eat, are all healthy with loadsa veg etc, but also butter and cream heavy. I’ve tried ‘light’ butter and ofc fake butter….but they do not taste the same. I don’t care what Utterly Butterly says!

I’ve been trying to snack on fruit when I’m hungry rather than my usual savoury favorites of pork pies, pickle sandwiches or any kind of pastry….but I’m so lazy it has to be ready prepared. Like grapes. The lazy mans fruit. Perfectly prepared in bite size nibbles. I’ve gone through a lot of grapes. I haven’t stopped eating the pork pies though..


shiny and new

I’ve felt pretty rubbish the last few months, but thankfully, I feel brand spanking new and shiny now. 

I think it’s a combination of Marc being home after his surprise return 3 weeks early, it being the GREATEST MONTH OF THEM ALL (Christmas AND my birthday), and I no longer feel like I need to know where the nearest toilet is at all times.

That and I have new makeup. 

I love having a job – money, tips and presents for myself. Winning.

Still can’t afford my beautiful MAC makeup, but a nice bit of Maxfactor has gone down a treat. 

Baby news

  • No major bumpage – I can fit into most of my clothes 
  • Still can’t feel movement
  • running up the stairs is EXHAUSTING.
  • Hideous adolescent teen skin is subsiding and I only have one or two tiny spots
  • Nerve in leg is quite painful, causing me to limp occasionally. Stupid relaxin..
  • Cat loves my belly.

On another note, Marc and myself took a trip to Mammas and Pappas… bad decision. The outfits for boys – GORGEOUS, the prices – not so much.

How is it legal to charge over a grand for a push chair?! Who pays these prices?! Ebay it is for me…………..


This has been my November addiction. Listen and love. Ciao
