I think this had got to be one of my favourite photos ever! A baby hedgehog I had it saved in one of my photo files and couldn’t resist showing it to you again. Look at his feet…aw and that face! I think I really am getting in to mummy mode this week!
Boy I’m glad it’s Saturday. I’ve just entered the 31st week of my pregnancy and I’m celebrating by drinking a huge mug of tea in bed after lazing with Mr Rox for a while Happy times. Random fact: Now that I’m married I have a new surname – Roxby. One of my besties at uni used to write “Emm ROX!” on my notes in tiny little letters, every time we sat by each other..maybe she was psychic! So, yeah, I’m a Mrs Rox now
The last week has been full of ups and downs, complete with more trips to the hospital and lots of baby talk. After a huge scare that our little man had stopped growing properly, we breathed a sigh of relief after finding out that he’s ok. It turns out that he’s going to be my little little man and is just a naturally small baby like his mummy was
On the down side, it looks as though I’ve got many more hospital visits to look forward to, due to a problem detected with my blood. I’m managing to keep myself positive by reminding myself that this is what the specialists are here for and that I’m in the best possible hands. I’m telling you girlies, the worry you go through in a typical pregnancy is enough but when there are problems, man, it really shows you that you become a mother as soon as you conceive. Your protective mechanisms go into overdrive!
Anyway….on a lighter topic! After reading a post on Christina’s blog, I became sold on a product called The Vegg – a vegan egg yolk replacer that can be used to make lots of things that vegans miss out on….like custard and vegan dippy eggs! So I headed across to the Vx online store and popped some in my shopping basket I’m really looking forward to trying it out in my transition to a more vegan based diet again, after our little laddie is born
I’d definitely check out the Secret Society of Vegans at the Vx site as you can pick up some pretty cool products that are 100% vegan. Another thing that impressed me (apart from the cool image of the place) is that the actual shop is run by volunteers. How great is that?! I hope to drop by when I’m next in London and take my little man for his first vegan cupcake
Highlights of the Week
- Being told that little man is still growing in there

What plans do you have for the weekend? We’re off to meet some friends soon at the local nature reserve. Hopefully there will be tea, scones and seal spotting involved
