A little announcement…

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed a distinct lack of prosecco selfies on my Instagram feed and #TWTWC over the past few months… Well, that’s because we have something rather wonderful and exciting to announce:
busby and the new baby
Busby is going to be a big sister! On or (more likely) around 22nd June 2015, Busby’s Only Child status will be expiring and we will be welcoming a bundle of squidgy newborn gorgeousness into The Hardings!
For someone who is shockingly bad at keeping secrets I’ve done quite well really… and I apologise for all of my “I’ve spent the week feeling unwell” updates on The Week That Was, I’ve felt so boring and miserable writing that, but I’ve been suffering from really awful pregnancy hangover (I’ve rebranded morning sickness – more on that later). I wanted to tell you all… I just wasn’t allowed!! Not being able to write about the pregnancy has been a kind of torture for a Parenting Blogger – but never fear, I’ve been documenting everything along the way!

I’ll be blogging about the pregnancy in a weekly feature called Pregnant with a Peppercorn, which I plan to publish every Monday (although I have a few posts waiting in drafts, so there may well be a week of Pregnant with a Peppercorn coming up!), and I’m hoping to do a few What Mama Wore posts as well as lots more! So join me on my second journey into the (be)wilderness of pregnancy… I wonder how different it will be baking a baby in the North of England?!

    Congratulations lovely, to you and all your family. A new bundle of squishy newborness is always a wonderful time for everyone. No prosecco is a bit rubbish though. I thought I was gonna find a prosecco drinking buddy when you moved up North! Xx
