My Baby Shower

My Baby Shower

Last Saturday was the first official celebration of our expected arrival in June, who I will refer to as ‘Baby H’ - his/her actual nickname varies greatly depending on who you ask, but ‘Baby H’ is both applicable and fit for public consumption. Although my due date is actually towards the end of June (the 22nd to be precise), one of my best friends, who helped to organise the shower is expecting her own bundle of joy in April, so we wanted to arrange an early baby shower for me so that we could be ready for our new roles as Aunties in just a few weeks’ time!

Paris - Part Trois

Disneyland!

I had originally intended to cover my entire Paris trip in one post, but somehow it’s spilled over into three. Apologies if you’re bored to death of my ramblings, be assured that this is the final post and normal service will resume shortly.

The last two days in Paris were actually the two I was looking forward to the most. On the Wednesday morning Darren and I had booked a tour of Versailles for everyone as their joint birthday gift - beginning in January all four have their birthdays by the beginning of February, which makes thinking of gifts quite a challenge. This year we were able to kill all four birds with one proverbial stone by paying for a private tour of the Palace of Versailles. I should clarify, that when I use the word ‘private’, I mean it was just the six of us on the tour, not that we had palace to ourselves - Kim Kardashian I am not.

Paris - Part Deux

Macaroon Cakes

We awoke on Monday morning to glorious sunshine, very lucky for a trip taking place in February, especially given our plans for a walking tour of Paris that evening. Our tour was the only pre-planned activity for the Monday so we had the day to ourselves to choose what we’d like to see and do, amazingly my brother suggested visiting a department store, entirely uninfluenced by me no less!

Paris - Part Un

The Eiffel Tower

This might be my first ever solely travel themed post... I may even have to consider adding a new category to the blog for such a momentous occasion, oo-er!

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited (by my parents) to spend a week with them in Paris. This trip has been several months in the making, originally pencilled in as a post-30th birthday family excursion, it was postponed until this year to allow my brother to complete his formal police training, but we finally got to head off to the city of lights a week ago on Saturday.

Fireworks!

I love blogging. I love writing about things I'm passionate about and I enjoy meeting fellow bloggers and reading about things they’re passionate about. However, there are occasions where real life can get in the way of your hobbies and passions, or times where for whatever reason you just fancy taking a break from it. That’s the real beauty of part-time blogging for me, I don’t depend on it for an income, although I make a little money from affiliate marketing and sponsored posts, that predominantly goes towards the cost of hosting the site and not supporting me. So when I feel like taking some time away to rediscover my enthusiasm, I can do so without any real concerns or apologies.
