Mum's Not the Word - Call Me Mommy!

I have lived in England for almost eight years. I embrace and use

British English in my daily life but I don’t have a British accent.

I’m not one of those Americans that attempt to affect a British

accent, but instead sound scary and frankly ridiculous. I’m also not

naturally susceptible to accents. Yes, my intonation has changed and I

say isn’t it and doesn’t it rather than ask a question

outright (this used to annoy me but I’ve… Continue

Big Boots to Fill

I got my first Mother’s Day card on Sunday from LLC. Because I’m now a

mom, I really am.

opportunity and… Continue

Due Date Tomorrow but No News Yet....

I just finished my second cup of raspberry leaf tea for the day. I read about its uterine stimulating qualities in one of my pregnancy updates and kept meaning to buy some. I didn’t get around to it until earlier this week, so hopefully I’m not too late to reap its supposed rewards!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
