Back to work

After five weeks on paternity leave I returned to work last week. There’s no hiding the fact that I didn’t want to go back…….I’d still rather be at home now to be fair. It can be difficulty to work full time and be up during the night with a baby….millions of people do it but […]

Paternity Leave

What an incredible five weeks I have had on Paternity leave. I cannot begin to put into words how incredibly lucky I have been to be able to take five weeks off work, fully paid, to spend with my family. I recognise that not all Companies are as generous as the Company I work for, […]

Woahhhh, we’re half way there

In the words of Bon Jovi ‘Woahhhh we’re half way there, Woahhhhh not even scared’. Well they weren’t his exact words but you get the point right? So half way there, ish. I’m slightly late updating on the half way there front. Mummy Hew is 21 weeks, I did intend to update at week 20 […]

First trimester

Baby Hew No2 is growing nicely. We’re now entering into the second trimester. We’ve had two scans and our due date is 27 June 2018. It all felt so surreal until we shared the news that Gracie is going to have a brother or sister with our friends. I can’t stop smiling when telling people. […]
