Amazing Anniversary

Valentines day and our anniversary are a day apart, so I’ll talk about them in the same post. And since I would be working on our anniversary we decided to celebrate both days a day early. To celebrate our anniversary, we had a pub meal, without actually going to the pub! Our local had limitedContinue reading “Amazing Anniversary”

Progression Possibility

Let me back track a bit to give you a bit of context. After getting a degree in Aerospace Engineering, I started working at a small aerospace firm.

First Festive Fun

Those who know us, know we absolutely love Christmas. Even Matilda‘s middle name, Noelle, means Christmas.

I might come back to it. But to put it simply, on 15th December, at about 4am, I wasContinue reading “Anticipated Arrival”

Suspicious Sunday

Jess woke up on Sunday, 13th December, feeling unusual. It was 15 days before her official due date, but she was already past 37 weeks pregnant, so was classed as full term. I had already decided that I was not going to be doing any more over time, as it was getting to the pointContinue reading “Suspicious Sunday”
