Originally, I’d planned to blog about motherhood on a monthly basis: the first month, second month and so on. But who am I kidding? Finding time to blog properly is but a pipe dream, let alone thinking and writing about something profoundly meaningful and life altering.

Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you spent it with all your loves, the big ones, the little ones and the furry ones. Me? Panu had the day off work (for an unrelated reason) but we had lunch together – burgers, milkshakes and a sleeping baby in the pram. Couldn’t ask for more than that!

Hope you all had a good one too x
