London Grammar

I just saw this from Jools Holland this week. So happy to see London Grammar get the recognition that they deserve. We were at the second gig they ever did in Brighton back at the start of the year when they supported Tom Odell. She is utterly beautiful up close. I know Tom thought so too, he kept looking over at her when she was standing behind me. I was convinced that he was in love with me for about 15 seconds.
I love Wasting My Young Years and this video is so awesome. Directed by Bison it was done with pin hole cameras and 35mm film. This is behind the scenes of the video, what an amazing project to work on.

Sienna's Room

Jen Campbell is the brains behind Green Wedding Shoes. This is her baby Sienna's nursery. Lovely isn't it? Modern, girly, with a touch of whimsy were her pre-requisites. Mine is pretty much done but there are a few similarities. Check out the links here.
How amazing are those baby blue eyes too. Cute!

36 Weeks

Bowling ball belly! So, the little lady is back to back (as in my back) like a little insect with her legs in the air, which means no more nice reclining on the sofa; birthing ball and all fours infront of the TV and sitting like MC Hammer on a chair backwards, allll the way. Well, for the next 4 weeks, turn little lady turn! 
This isn't very exciting but today Joe and I bought nappies. Arghhhh actual nappies, 75 of them! I feel hot just mentioning it. This has made it very very real. I have only changed ONE nappy in my whole life, how long until I am a pro?! This past week we had Bertie to stay for half term, the first night he did 3 poos, the second 5 poos! And started crying (howling) at 4 in the morning. Oh the irony, the practise!

Week 35

35 Weeks! Napping like a pro and drinking/peeing like a mentalist. Starting to buy a couple of things too... Argh stop me before I get out of control! There are just so many cute prints which seduce my slightly immature graphic designer eye. See here (umbrellas!) and here (cats!).
On a more holistic level I have been reading a lot of Ina May Gaskin and Gowri Motha and listening to my hypnotherapy app a lot, really enjoying creating my happy place, oh yes. The water birthing course put me off having a waterbirth; just too much faffing about, getting in and out of the pool, getting hair wet, all that extra stuff you need to take - bendy straws (!) I may just change my mind in the throws of pain, however. Don't hold me to anything ;)

Mini Rodini AW13

Mini Rodini have just the cutest prints. Not too twee and girly, original colours, no mixing of bright ORANGE and PINK ~ why do so many baby clothes makers put those two horrendous colours together? Oh and then add in green and turquoise! Gross. So yeah Mini Rodini have their shit together! Everything is unisex but actually look at that snowy mountain print bottom left. It says; c'mon let's go ski! and I love skiing and Chamonix Aspen. Too cute.
Oh and also Cissy Wears are doing 20% off a selected brand everyday until the owner gives birth! She is at 38 weeks. Today is Bobo Choses, hoping that Mini Rodini comes up too! The code is CALLTHEMIDWIFE. Hurrah!

Week 34

Been really enjoying NCT this week (learnt so much!) and busy busy with a few final work projects. Off to a water birth course tonight. Joe is going out with the men from NCT on Wednesday and I have my final class, just the girls, on Thursday. We have almost done the nursery just waiting for a new blind and a few other bits. Really important bits like this. It's been so much fun doing it. I love just sitting in there thinking about everything that is about to happen. So does Frankie, that little scamp.
Roll on Halloween, my favourite (ok maybe second favourite to Christmas) time of the year.

33 Weeks

33 Weeks down (WHAT!), 7 to go(ish) getting so excited about it. Even the birth actually; having spent 3 hours on Wednesday and 5 hours yesterday at NCT talking about it all! Positions, pain relief options, locations etc etc. Acceptance of whatever will be will be, taking on the huge challenge to relinquish control and let her come when she is ready and have confidence in my body that it was made to do this and I will be fine. That billions have done it before and thousands will be doing it at the exact same time as me. 
Finally sorting the nursery out and sorting through everything we have/don't have for her. Such an exciting time. Come on little lady I can't wait to meet you!

Valentino SS14


Just so awesome!
