The first trimester + Christmas + 2 kids off school + work + Norovirus + finding natural remedies = this post. I’m not gonna lie, since December 1st I’ve been feeling utterly revolting and pathetically useless. This was the day I found out I was pregnant with my third child.

Last October, my family and I decided to go to Aruba over the October half term break. It was beyond incredible and I promised so many of you I would write about it… so here goes! First off, why Aruba? And where is it?? Aruba is a very small island just north of Venezuela and within the Caribbean islands – however, unlike other Caribbean islands, Aruba is out of the hurricane belt (awesome) and has sunshine ALL YEAR ROUND, so any time of year is a great time to go.

Six years ago I became a mother. I remember every single detail of my labour – which I was told I would forget. Luckily I haven’t blocked it out… The reason I wanted to write this story is simply because, in my opinion there are too many stories out there about giving birth that are terrifying.
