So it was my almost ex's almost birthday and I suggested we go out for lunch so that he could see the baby. Aren't I a good samaritan 👼 We went to Reds True Barbecue in Leeds and ordered a ridiculous quantity of food. I had mac and cheese balls to start (nice but I … Continue reading 14th May: A cheeky biscuit thief
So I'm in mixed minds about all this charity shopping. Part of me thinks that stocking up on cheap clothes before I need them saves me lots of money as if I wait until I NEED something I'll probably not find it and have to pay more on the high street.

Today I'm trying to focus on all the advantages of being single and make the most out of my maternity leave. The daily diaries are really driving home how I don't have much time left and when I'm back at work (and Emily is probably walking around) I probably won't bother with museum days out.I've … Continue reading 24th April: Haworth with my Honeybear
