Oh my word what a busy few months it has been. Bear with me while I dust the cobwebs of this much neglected blog!

I wish I could tell you all that lots has been happening since I last posted but indeed, I’d be lying. It was a funny old summer for us. First of all, we found out we are expecting baby number three! To say it was a shock would be an understatement but we’re all delighted. It was easy enough to hide the early symptoms during the heatwave as everything was blamed on the heat. Anyone who knows me “in real life” knows that I am not  good with heat at the best of times so there was much complaining! Unfortunately, I pulled a muscle in my back at 10 weeks and was unable to take any kind of pain relief (except paracetamol) It is the worst bad back I have ever experienced and even now at 18 weeks I am still in a fair bit of pain on a day to day basis. Apart from that, everything is going well and I am getting my head round the fact that in a few years time I will have one child in college, one in secondary school and one in primary school!

So er, that’s pretty much it. There weren’t many shopping/day trips this summer – not even IKEA! and I did hardly any cooking or baking but I’m slowly getting back to it. I received a lovely cookbook to review in the post last week so watch out for that over the coming days. Also, I will have a discount code for Tesco’s online service over the coming days so keep an eye out for that.

It’s great to be back!
