Happy New Year! I know I’m a little late, but better late than never I guess…
I really neglected this blog in 2016. I had so much going on something had to give. I was working full time, studying and pregnant while running a household and looking after my two older sons. So it left very little time for any extra activities. I ended up with pelvic girdle pain in the second half of my pregnancy and had to use crutches if I was walking for longer than 10 minutes. I’m normally a pretty active person and one of my favourite hobbies is going for really long walks, so I struggled with not being able to get around much. My husband ended up doing most of the cooking and with the way I was feeling, I was more than happy for him to do so. After a scare at 26 weeks, I was signed off work and told to rest as much as I could. It wasn’t the easiest of pregnancies, but it was all so worth it when we finally got to meet our gorgeous little Hamish, after an emergency C section at 11.10pm on the 30th October. If he was born one hour later he would have been a Halloween baby!
So right now I’m just making the most of my maternity leave and our new baby. My other two boys are almost 14 (next month) and 12, so I can really appreciate why people say “they grow up so fast!” and “cherish every moment while they are little”. It’s not a cliche, it really is true.
Thank you for sticking with me in 2016 and I hope to be back posting recipes very soon!
