Advice for partners (not mine, I’d like to add)

My advice? Ha, don’t be stupid, guys! No, I have not decided to start writing a self help blog for people who’s partners are pregnant. Although I think my perspective would make a refreshing change to most other blogs on said topic, I think it would…

A not-so natural

I know you are going to find this surprising, but I’ve never really been over maternal. No, really 😉 Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I dislike babies as such, I’m just, well, a bit indifferent to them. When friends have had kids, I’ve definitely not…
