13th June: No title

Couldn't think of a title. Morning at Gingerbread meet up with the single mums and then into York afterwards. I got a picture of Lendal Bridge (which I do most weeks even though it's the same photo) Then I was on the look out for a daily gratitude journal as I thought it would keep … Continue reading 13th June: No title

My pregnancy overhshare part three: the second trimester

The middle bit. The easy bit. The no symptoms bit. The bit where you feel so fine you can forget you are pregnant! Fucking liars. Oh my word, every bit of pregnancy sucks. The nausea wears off but for me the headaches and back ache hit in full force around week 15. I did have … Continue reading My pregnancy overhshare part three: the second trimester

10th June: A better day

After my Sunday afternoon shit show my friend suggested we meet in York for cake and sympathy. Emily and I were supposed to go swimming beforehand but Emily was up for a lie in and therefore so was I. We met at Hilda and Jane's near the City Walls on the Racecourse side of town. … Continue reading 10th June: A better day

York Charity Shopping

Toddler boots: £1.50 size 6 so might be a while until she fits them but nevermind Sparkly shoes 🙂 I was really happy to find these. £4 seem nearly new from Next. (If you are size three and like gold heels they had three pairs at Sue Ryder which were 👌🏻) £2 Nutmeg, current size … Continue reading York Charity Shopping

8th June: York Pride

I was feeling shitty last night and messaging a friend having a right old whinge. She suggested Emily and I come to York early and have tea and chat at hers before we wander into the city to meet one of our other single mum friends to follow the Pride march onto the racecourse. We … Continue reading 8th June: York Pride

24th May: Piglets and Pals

It was a lovely day, sunny, hanging with single mama friends. Lots of gorgeous little ones having loads of fun together. Baby animals. Emily had her first sand experience (taste). I got an ice cream and dipped it in my coffee (try it). Just all round good stuff. Photo essay below:

23rd May: A disappointment of a cream tea

Thursdays are for Gingerbread meet ups in York but I like to make use of being there so have a little trip somewhere and either buy loads of charity stuff or take a million photos. Someone suggested I have a look around Acomb as there are a few charity shops, someone else suggested I take … Continue reading 23rd May: A disappointment of a cream tea

16th May: I ❤️ York

I used to have an I ❤️ NY hoodie. It was great. I spent a summer in America after university working at Indian Head Camp. Four of us went travelling around the East Coast area for a bit afterwards but because of pick ups and drop offs we ended up staying in Manhattan three times. … Continue reading 16th May: I ❤️ York

Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

I'm branching out now. I'm not just sticking to the city centre, I crossed the river. Such dedication. I think this very creepy baby is a good place to start. Look at that horrible tummy button and three fingered hands. Hideous. £1 An excellent selection of dinosaurs but I think I'll regret the purchase when … Continue reading Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

3rd May: Bloody LOADS of photos

Another day in York so obviously I made sure to have my phone with me. I've been feeling a bit down this week and was due to meet a friend, when she messaged me mirroring a few things I was thinking I thought sod it...let's use my afternoon tea vouchers and have a treat. Carpe … Continue reading 3rd May: Bloody LOADS of photos

2nd May: No bloody photos

My phone cable conspired against me yesterday and wasn't plugged in properly overnight. When I set off in the morning I had less than 10% battery 😱 Luckily I was on time and found my friends at the train station as planned so didn't really need it. And it meant I didn't have the opportunity … Continue reading 2nd May: No bloody photos

York Charity Shop Haul

Once again nothing for Emily. Bad mum. A few bits for me though. I couldn't try the jumper (above) on in the shop as I was both babywearing, breastfeeding and browsing all at once. However I did manage to try on four skirts whilst doing all those things so I felt like a brilliant multitasker. … Continue reading York Charity Shop Haul
