Sleeping over writing.

Oh my gosh there is no competition when it comes to sleep, and with a newborn baby everyone said to me sleep when he sleeps and try not to worry about jobs around the house…..

Yes they look so cute when they’re sleeping bla bla bla, however the noises are so not what I expected. Snoring seems to be getting louder and louder, I sleep between two snorers which at first I would laugh to myself but now I find myself putting the pillow over my ears to muffle it. Well, muffle that and the constant white noise we have in the background to soothe him!

The fun side to this is I’ve been starting to record these noises, the yelps, barking (yes down the monitor you would think we had an Alsatian up there!) and then there’s the random noises which I describe as a laugh or giggle. These are what fills the endless nights of sleeping!

I remember my hairdresser saying to me once that her hubby got sick of the ‘snuffle noises’ and they put their little one in the nursery quite early. But then speaking to a friend the other night his girlfriend has an 8 month old and she won’t put him in the nursery yet. I guess all folk are different but I’m just taking everyday as it comes but trying to see the funny side of things.


I will try not to blog about my baby too much because that’s not what my writing is about, but it’s all I’m experiencing at the moment and I’ve always written on that.

In the meantime I’m finding reading other mums blogs quite entertaining like the unmumsy mum and the gin series on Facebook!

Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy, Laura Barnard

When I finally got around to reading the last of this trilogy, I really did not want to be disturbed and I could have quite easily just sat and read the whole book in one.  The trouble is work kind of did get in the way and housework (even more boring)!  Although the odd kicking of my boy dancing in my uterus, was a welcome distraction of coarse!

Still waiting for Multiple Oranges Juiced Overly…

Which is funny (in my head because I’m not that keen on oranges at the moment due to my taste buds, aka Billy Boy!)   Yes we have a nickname for him, it started with OB but Billy Boy seems to be more appropriate!

The Debt & the Doormat and The Baby & The Bride , Laura Barnard

Let’s merge two reviews into one, just for the hell of it!  (I’m SUCH a rebel!)  The obvious reason is because both books are written by the same author, and I would normally do these separate but I literally finished the first one and couldn’t wait to see what happens so went and bought the next one straight away.  (Hey I’m sure I’m not the first and I know I won’t be the last!!!)

You’re the one that I want, Giovanna Fletcher

I’m beginning to like this writer more and more, firstly she is awesome and secondly she’s super awesome!!  Ha ha, but seriously not only is she a writer after previously being a journalist but she’s also a celebrity mother to Buzz and Buddy her 2 adorable boys whom she has with husband McFly band member Tom Fletcher.  She’s got a pretty high profile life yet always comes across as down to earth and pretty laid back.

Opinion counts…right?

So I was sat eating my bowl of museli this morning whilst watching Good Morning Britain (which by the way has gone downhill since Piers Morgan has been on it, but I still watch it when he’s not presenting) just getting my daily top new stories.  Everyone does it, well most people!  I’m still sitting on fence about whether to leave the EU or not, so I seem to be watching more news lately to see if anything sways me, but sadly nothing!  But that’s another story!
