Not many people know this, but I’ve only got one fallopian tube. There’s no reason for anyone to know, but to me it’s a huge part of my journey into parenthood. When we decided to try for a baby it never occurred to me that we may have any problems. I’d grown up hearing of how […]
09:38 on 24.05.12 – My world changed forever.
09:38 on 29.08.14 – It changed all over again.
One Mumma’s musings on the moments her life changed and all those moments – good, bad and entirely mad that make up being a parent.
So we’re nearing our 2 month anniversary of being in business! Wow. How quickly that has gone. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us to date. You really are very lovely people indeed. When we went live at precisely 09:38 (when else..) on October 1st, I’d love to tell you that I was […]

It’s the inspiration behind this blog – and now my business (!) so I figured it was about time I shared the story of my two 09:38 arrivals. Starting with the time my world changed forever. Take one. I know lots of women really enjoy being pregnant. I’ve read statements like ‘I loved every second.’ […]
I’ve been meaning to start a blog for such a long while, but due to one thing (read excuse!) or another I’d never quite got round to it. So back in May I decided to bite the bullet, stop talking about it and ‘just do it’ (my mantra for the year to stop me dithering). And aren’t I […]
.. (Or most traumatic) So it happened. Finally. Yesterday the youngest #0938er had his first ever haircut. At 22 months it was well overdue. His mass of curls were out of control and he’d got the surfer dude look down to a tee. But I’ve waited this long for a couple of reasons. No. 1 […]
On Friday I met my parents at a really lovely park. 500 acres, resident deer, a lake – and a favourite with the #0938ers – an awesome adventure playground. We left the playground until the end (do it first and it’d be tantrums and tearing them away…) and they loved it. My youngest was content […]
This afternoon my lovely dad took time out of his working day to take me and my youngest #0938er to the car garage. It had been in all day for its service and all I needed to do was collect it. It was absolutely chucking it down, so dad delivered me right to the door, […]
I like to think of myself as organised (who doesn’t love a list?!) but no amount of planning could have prepared us for the epic journey that was the road to getting a passport for the youngest 0938er. It wasn’t the passport office at fault (who, it has to be said were brilliant), it wasn’t […]
Exactly 4 years ago today – at this precise moment I became a mumma. My daughter was lifted sleeping from my stomach. My husband shouted “It’s a boy!” the surgeon explained that was the umbilical cord. It was an amazing moment. And terrifying. But mostly just beautiful. This tiny pink bundle, whose legs were up […]
