If you’ve followed me and my adventures for a while, you might have noticed that I don’t post a huge amount about my private life in general (FYI: my husband is not really a yellow pot). It’s not that I have anything to hide, it’s just great to go about your day without having to share everything with the world (you can easily end up living your whole life online rather than enjoying the moment in the real world). Last year, when I found out I was pregnant I was overjoyed, of course, but felt it was something that I wanted to keep for friends and family until I was ready to share it with the wider community. I was never going to do a Queen Bey style announcement.
It certainly wasn’t easy to keep a secret with filming to do, social media to keep up with and events to attend. High-waisted skirts, and strategically placed pillows and laptops were a must. When the bump got too big I simply decided to stop with the media malarky, which was actually quite liberating.
I was very fortunate to have a pretty much carefree pregnancy. There were no weird cravings (boohoo! I really wanted them) or major health problems (just the odd niggle; see more about how I combated them here).
Why am I sharing my wonderful news with you now? Well, the bump is now a baby and I am super excited about rediscovering the world and food through new eyes and a hungry little mouth. Don’t worry it won’t be all mushed up baby food recipes, mamma has got to eat too 😉
Ciao for now!
P.S. If you have any tips on weaning, or would like to share your favourite baby food recipes, I would love to hear them!
