Marmite/Vegemite and goats cheese on crumpets?!


Okay so hear me out on this one it’s not just a crazy pregnancy craving I promise!

My 21st birthday has recently been and gone and when my mum asked me if there is anything specific I would like for my birthday breakfast I really wanted goats cheese and marmite on crumpets. I’ve only ever had this once before as it’s pretty unusual but the flavour combination is a winner! If you like marmite and goats cheese I urge you to try this and you can thank me later, who doesn’t love a good crumpet? Food has become such a huge part of my life since being pregnant, I have always loved my food but now it seems to be all I think about.. hopefully I can blame the pregnancy. One of my cravings has been pickled hot chilli’s, what cravings have other people had?


It’s A BOY!!

I found out on Friday that I’m having a baby boy and I couldn’t be happier. Obviously the only thing you’re really looking for at that 20 week scan is to be told your baby is growing well and is all happy and healthy, but if you decide you want to find out the gender of your little one it really is the cherry on top of the cake when you get told at the end of your scan! The radiographer announced she was very sure I would be having a boy and a wave of happiness came over me, I was so excited because there really isn’t a lot of boys in my family. On my mums side it’s a sea of girls, I have one male cousin who has just had a baby boy then after him it’s me to have the next boy! My dad is absolutely over the moon he’s getting a grandson but I honestly don’t have the first clue what to do with little boys, luckily I have some friends who are having/have had boys so I should be able to get some good advice from them as I really don’t know where to start!

I bought my first newborn boy items yesterday which included little blue booties and a check shirt style onesie, too cute! I’ve not got a lot of baby shops where I live, there isn’t even a mother care here anymore. Where’s the best place to pick up baby basics?
