Planning for Labour (the second time around)

I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with my second (and most probably my last) baby. My first baby girl came into this world in a pretty stressful way. I was induced on my due date with Maddison as I started to get early signs of pre eclampsia. I won’t go into all of the details... Continue Reading →

Sovereign Hill with a Toddler

Hubby, Maddison and I went and visited Sovereign Hill recently. Hubby remembers visiting the historic ‘town’ as a child and was keen for us to experience it as a family too.
