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!
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!

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!

You may ask yourself this on a regular basis, I used to and sometimes I still do it now but I try and stop myself most of the time….

As I write this post, I ponder and wonder if there’ll be anyone else that feels the same way. I know family is blood and like they say it’s thicker than water BUT how many people see their families on a regular basis nowadays? I feel lucky that I do see my family and I have friends who tell me they only see their siblings at Christmas, or possibly over the summer holidays.

I’m so lucky that I can go for a walk at lunch times over Southampton Common, it’s the largest green area in Southampton. Continue reading “Lunchtime stroll?”
So after that evening I spent listening to Adele Parks got me thinking that I know I should have done this before but I suddenly decided (after advised by AP) to interview my main two characters to help me with the depth of the characters *and breathe*.
