And then there were three

Newborn photoshoot

On the 15th of February at 2.48pm, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy, Reuben Alexander Duthie into the world. If you follow me on other social media channels, there's no doubt you'll know this already as I have been sharing lots of pictures and videos of this little guy (can ya really blame me though?!) I didn't expect my last blog post to be the very last one I would write before his arrival, but he caught us rather off guard and was born three weeks early. This was just a few days after my baby shower (good timing huh!) So one month and one day later, we are settling into a sort of routine and I actually feel like I have the brain capacity and time while he sleeps, to share some pictures and his birth story.

What's in my hospital bag?

36 weeks pregnant

Oh my days, how is it February already? My first post of 2018 definitely comes a little later than planned. I'll be honest I have absolutely no idea where January disappeared to. It was a month of navigating work while trying to negotiate with a body which no longer feels like my own. Heavy, tired, sore - I ended up finishing my last job a week earlier than planned due to tearing a muscle in my back. Turns out that turning your body and coughing at the same time can do such a thing! Anyways, moaning aside, it's now only 3 weeks until we get to meet our little fella, and I actually can't believe it. I gave myself a hard time having to admit defeat and leave work early, but I think it was maybe a blessing in disguise. Now the REAL nesting and final baby prep can begin. So, here's a little post sharing where I'm at so far.

Food and Festivities with Tempus

Christmas Dinner

I told ya it wouldn't be long until my next visit to the Tempus restaurant at the Grand Central Hotel after my recent trip in October. With hotel restaurants often being overlooked, Tempus is an absolute gem in the heart of Glasgow (literally a 30 second walk when you get off the train in central station) and over the years has played host to our annual blogger christmas shennanigans, organised by my lovely pal Laura. In 2015 and 2016 we had a sleepover in the hotel with food from the restaurant served in the comfort of our suite! However this year the festive period has been a bit crazy busy for everyone, so we ended up just going for dinner rather than staying over. Lynsay - your ears are saved from my snoring for one more year!
