If you’ve been following my social media, you’ll know that we spent a couple of days in Birmingham at the weekend. We went to This Morning Live at Birmingham NEC on Friday, with complimentary tickets we got from the press launch last month. However, we stayed another day as Aldi Mamia kindly invited us to attend The Baby Show. An event for expectant parents and new parents, there was an plethora of stands.
I’ve recently started blogging about weddings. It’s almost my 2nd wedding anniversary and I really do miss the excitement of wedding planning! As such, this is my way of reliving it. Today’s post is a guest post from mumpreneur Claire who has a small business, planning weddings in Central Park. Central Park looks like a great venue for a wedding. I’ve seen it on TV in movies such as When Harry Met Sally, Elf and Home Alone 2. It’s beautiful and if I’d gone to the US to get married, it definitely would have been my choice over Las Vegas.
Let’s hand it over to Claire…
If you’ve been following my blog and social media accounts, you’ll remember that I went to the press launch of This Morning Live at the ITV Studios in London last month. With home, garden and lifestyle stands, we were excited to go to the show in Birmingham. There were just two things standing in our way…a teething baby and a 150 mile journey in torrential rain!
Sometimes we have memories from childhood that stand out in our mind. It doesn’t always necessarily always make sense to us as adults. However, occasionally it’s because something happened that elicited strong emotions at the time. Even if we would have responded differently now and it seems a little silly, these events can sometimes have a lasting effect on us.
A couple of months ago, I was sent a book to review, Maternity Leavers by Soozi Baggs. I don’t often find the time to sit down and read, now that Autumn is on the move, so it’s taken me a little longer than first anticipated to get round to this. However, I’m glad that I found some time to read this. I think it’s difficult for many women on maternity leave to make a decision about work. Some can’t wait to get back, while others dread it and either try to be a full time stay at home mum or work from home/become self-employed.
