It’s been quiet on the blog for the past few weeks, due to unexpected early arrival of Baby Maximiser. I had been working on building up a stock of posts to keep the site ticking over around and following my due date, however Baby Maximiser had other plans.
Instead of this break happening in Feb, our gorgeous son joined us three weeks ago. I know life can throw you some unexpected things and luckily hubby and I had purchased major items in advance (we both thought the baby would come before the due date but not this early!).
Being the Money Maximiser that I am our advanced planning made the most on offers on baby stuff. We managed to bag a whole “travel system” (buggy, car seat and car seat base), moses basket and stand for £300 – all brand new! As you can probably tell I’m quite proud of this, especially seeing that some buggies/pushchairs alone exceed £1000!
The past few weeks have been some of the most beautiful and also stressful weeks. The joy of having a little version of ourselves (well, more my husband), coupled with the stress of recovery and additional time in hospital. Thankfully we are all now home and well, adjusting to life as a family.
I never thought I could operate on so little sleep, having been the girl who needed to be in bed by a certain time otherwise she morphed into a not so pleasant person. Guess this is one of those things in life that shows you that you are capable of more than you think, especially when pushed!
Anyhow, I’m going to leave it here before I start rambling on too much. If you don’t want to have to keep checking back for new posts, be sure to follow the blog for updates on new posts. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.
