1st Birthday as a mummy
Lovely to be back at work presenting the Nightshift and things are a bit different now with being a mummy and all! I remember never being able to sleep before a nightshift, now I’m so tired I sleep all afternoon with a wee bubba before I go to work! So nowadays I’m known as a bit of a lightweight when it comes to socialising, and it just so happens July is my birthday month, hence lots of celebrations :)
My best friend from childhood, Susan, took me out for a wonderful sushi dinner and then went to the casino (where I lost) then on for a cocktail and a gin and tonic! 1:30 I rolled home after a good feed and some laughs only to go home to a wee baby who was not for sleeping…… after a few hours of dummy persuasion I finally went to sleep and woke up on my birthday morning to banana porridge a wet nappy and 3 episodes of Roary the Racing Car :) I have to say though it was the best birthday ever! Wee Harris did very well for himself going out and buying me lovely earrings considering he’s only 6 months old :)
On the day of my birthday we all went out for a family meal and had a great time, Harris got a wee taste of chocolate cake made by my friend Bobby, she makes the best chocolate cake ever and after a milky bottle we were all able to enjoy a lovely Chinese meal. Never did I think I’d be able to get ready in 20 minutes for a night out with family! Dry shampoo is a wonder and a 48 hour deodorant will always be cherished!
Here is a wee family snap of my first birthday as a mummy!
Speak to you during the night on STV soon :)
