It is very rare that we get to spend time away from Dolly. I mean, we both work full time so the time we spend together at the weekends is invaluable. Every now and then it’s nice to be able to get away and not have to worry about where the next snack is coming […]Read More Center Parcs – The one where Kirstie turns 30
Mummy Hew and I talked at length about whether we wanted to expand the Hew Family. We looked at the pros and cons of having an only child and whether that was something we wanted.

We all eat and drink 300 times more than normal, gain stupid amounts of weight and get socks. I actually really enjoy getting socks for […]Read More Christmas 2017
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. […]Read More First trimester
We are always so busy. We never have a weekend to ourselves. My parents moved to Norfolk 5 years ago and Mummy Hew’s family all live in Harrogate. We love having people to stay and our door is always open. We also love traveling the length of the country to spend weekends with our […]Read More Lodgy
