Week 23 has not been kind to me, alas. Not from a baby perspective – she’s discovered the upper reaches of her little world and is tickling me in my ribs, which is really cute – but emotionally speaking. I never know if I should write about this stuff. It always seems really self-indulgent to me,… Continue reading Week 23 – the walking incubator
It has begun. I’ve started to properly slow down! For someone like me who loves to walk quickly, scooting around the slow movers on the pavement, I can no longer do this without becoming seriously out of breath!
