Wow – it’s been over two years since I last updated this blog. A few things have changed since then. I can’t claim to have had a two-year long pregnancy as a reason for not keeping my blog updated, however we do now have a baby girl-shaped excuse for much lateness, disorganisation and general, well-intended chaos! It’s the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me, and also by far the most challenging.

Life has changed forever at the end of October 2017 when Liliana was born. I don’t often think of myself as a mum (whatever that may mean), but I do now have a daughter. We are now a family. It is incredible. Her smiles make me smile every day, and her tears have reduced me to tears on a number of occasions. I am still me, but currently my life is consumed by keeping a tiny, less patient (if that is possible?!) version of me alive!
