Hello everyone, and welcome back to Week 18 of fortheloveofBLOG. We had a fantastic week on the linky last week, with some great posts. Thank you so much to everyone for continuing to link up, and it is also great to see some new faces too. I’ve had an incredibly busy week starting off with my Brother’s wedding last weekend, which was amazing. We managed to stay the entire night. Ear defenders really are great, and meant that we could party whilst our little one slept.

Hints and tips for going back to work

Hint and tips on going back to work after maternity leave

I’ve been back at work for 6 weeks working full time, and my daughter has been going to nursery for 4-days a week. It was really difficult at first, I felt like I was running a marathon before arriving into the office, and life became a juggling act, keeping the plates spinning was a fine art. But now 6 weeks in we are finding a balance, after lots of sickness to deal with at the beginning. It’s now lovely seeing her face at the end of a long day, and having a little bit of time together in the evenings before bedtime. I wanted to share this post as a hints and tips guide for mum’s going back to work, and offer some lovely bits of advice.  Continue reading

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Week 17 of fortheloveofBLOG. Last week I had the lovely Sarah from Tammymum guest co-hosting with me whilst Fi was on holiday. Sarah did an absolutely fabulous job, and I loved her being part of fortheloveofBLOG. This week Fi is back and we can’t wait for you all to start linking up with us.

This weekend it’s my Brother’s wedding. I’m super excited although a little nervous about doing a reading in church, and whether our 1 year old will sit still through the service. I’m sure it’ll so much fun, and I’ll be blogging about taking a baby to a wedding for sure. This also means that I will be retweeting and replying to your #fortheloveofBLOG tweets on Sunday instead of Saturday.

The Partner’s View – 2 Brides 2 Mummies

The Partners View featuring 2 Brides 2 Mummies

This week on The Partner’s View I am excited to introduce Sarah and Lauren from 2 Brides 2 Mums. Sarah tells us their story from conception through to birth by c-section. A decision that was made calmly after induction at 37 weeks. It’s a moving story, with many important decisions made a long the way by both Sarah and Lauren. The part that really resonated with me was both Sarah and Lauren were making the decisions, with the expert advice of their healthcare team, rather than it being an emergency. I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I did.
