Cassie Young. Congratulations! I’ll be in touch to ask for your address soon.
There is not much a pregnant lady can do to be truly fashionable – at least not when you are, like me, four weeks away from giving birth and literally bursting out of all seams. However, one thing that won’t go amiss (and would make a brilliant baby shower / push present *hint hint*) is […]
Yikes, I can’t believe I am well into my 29th week already. Where did the time go? It feels as if the magical blue line on that stick only appeared a few days ago; yet I am supposed to hold a newborn baby in my arms in ten weeks time. I remember people asking me […]
Risking to bore you to death: St Tropez is still great and still beautiful. Whilst Big M had to go back to London to work this week, my friend E has come down from Paris to join us. It’s oestrogens galore with E, little L, me and the baby girl bump.
Age is irrelevant – unless you’re a cheese Over dinner with S the other day, I discovered a shocking truth about ageing that so far had been hidden from me.

And why would anyone accept a state leader that […]
In time with the golden trimester, my sciatica pain has come back (read: shooting pains up my right bum cheek), my sinuses are so dry, I get regular nosebleeds and my skin has the soft and smooth texture of a raisin. Still determined though to make it to the blooming and blossoming bit, here goes […]
I am having a few ‘hit by a truck’ days. Nothing that a 30-minute afternoon nap couldn’t fix, but still hugely annoying. Especially now that I’ve got more to do than in a long time (more on that later). I am starting to wonder whoever came up with that golden trimester myth. Ah, who knows, […]
