My latest ear crush

That is, my ears have a new crush, not I have a crush on this guy's ears. Anyhoo..this song is called The Fear, it's sung by a blokey called Ben Howard and I'm a wee bit obsessed with it at the moment. 

He's playing in Bristol at the end of February and I'm thinking of going. I'll be due a couple of weeks later though so will be pretty mahoosive by then. But we've been to the venue before and there plenty of places where I could safely stand and watch while getting a decent view at the same time so maybe..

And I'm rambling again. It really is a great song, if you play it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

4 Simple Goals, the return!

So I think the last time I did one of these was in October last year..some time ago!

I really enjoyed having these smaller goals to aim towards, but what killed it for me was having a deadline that was too far away. I either forgot what my goals were or forgot to do them. So this time, I'm going for monthly goals. Much easier to keep track of. And the goals above will also help me complete my Winter List so even better!

Bump update - 5 months

Please ignore the McDonald's fries. I only had a few of the husband's...promise!

I'm 21 weeks now, half way there and finally I'm starting to feel properly pregnant. It may seem odd that it's taken me this long, but until we got the all clear following last week's scan, it kind of felt as though this pregnancy wasn't really real, as if I was just playing at it or something.
Now however, I feel as though there is definitely going to be an actual little person at the end of all this. Something which has me been both grinning with excitement and quietly freaking out in equal measure.

So here's the second and last scan photo of Pip. The next time I post a picture of her will be after she's born. That's right, I said "she". Pip's a girl! Just as I thought I might add, which meant Dan lost the bet and had to buy Chinese for dinner.
I had crispy aromatic duck. It was lush.

We have a name for her, but we're keeping it a secret for now. I already can't imagine her being called anything else so I don't want to risk it being ruined by someone telling me how they once had a friend with a young girl called the same thing who then went on to become an axe wielding murderer or something daft.

Probably the best thing so far has been feeling her kick. It's nice to get a daily reminder that she's really in there and not something I've just made up!
It also makes all the little niggles worth while. Needing the loo 15 times in an hour, itchy belly, instant heartburn after eating chocolate (SO not impressed with that one), back ache, tiredness that hits at 2.30pm every day and almost constant gas. Yup.

Oh my god and did I mention that my girl likes to skank! For those who aren't sure what I'm talking about, it's  this..or a version of it at any rate!

She is totally awesome already.
