Babies, BritMums and Builders…

Jess McGlynnJune 19, 2015

What a difference a week can make to the weather; as I write this there is rain hammering against the window and I’ve had to turn all the lights on as the sky is so dark.  Surely this time last week I wasn’t sunbathing in the garden!? 

We did manage to get out to Speke Hall last weekend whilst James was at work and the weather was beautiful, it’s just such a shame it didn’t last!


This week I have read so many birth announcements it is unbelievable…clearly this is a good week for babies to be born!  Massive congratulations to everyone who is enjoying newborn snuggles right now.  I am not in the least bit jealous…nope, not at all.  Well, maybe just a smidge.


I have been watching two new seasons of my favourite shows this week; America’s Next Top Model and Who Do You Think You Are USA.  It’s makeover week this week for ANTM and I can’t wait, it’s my favourite part of the whole season.  There will be hysterics, there will be androgyny, there will be change…it will be brilliant.  I laugh so hard because I know that if I were blessed enough to be tall and have model-esque features Tara would cut all my hair off which would make me sob.  And then sob some more.


Other than my wellies I have been trying out different outfit combinations for BritMums this week.  I am no fashion blogger preferring to be able to get myself dressed in less than 10 minutes flat but I’m hopefully going to gain some confidence and use the chance to dress it up a bit more.


I like to listen to music whilst I work at home as it makes me feel less conscious of the fact that it’s just me and the dog in the house.  My album of choice this week has been ‘Now That’s What I Call A Song’…there are some classic belters on there which definitely make me glad I’m on my own although I did realise halfway through I Believe I Can Fly that I had the study window open and there were builders directly underneath.  Hope they enjoyed my heartfelt performance!

I have had such a crazy week that my ‘made’ for this week is a little poor I’m afraid…I did make a superhero city for Eli so that he would be occupied whilst I cleaned and tidied the house.  Unfortunately there was a major disaster and the whole city got destroyed before I could take a photo…yeah, thanks Eli.

And Lastly…

As you read this I will be sat on the train whizzing towards London and BritMums Live.  I am terrified and excited in equal measures and just hope that I have a wonderful weekend meeting familiar faces and drinking lots of wine.  In fact the thing I am looking forward to most is getting to stay overnight in a hotel and not being woken at 6am by the kids!

Have a great week all.
