I’ve never really cared about, or paid much attention to, babies and other people’s children. It’s not that I don’t like them, I’ve just never had any reason to be interested in them apart from my own godchildren.

But that was then and this is now.

I’ve never been as excited about a fetus as I am about the one that is growing in my best friend’s belly!

It is the most beautiful and most amazing fetus I’ve ever seen in my life  – I’m of course being totally objective here ;) And even though it’s not mine, I feel like this is the start of a new chapter in my life. A chapter where more and more of my friends are getting married and having babies.

Despite not being anywhere close to being married or having children myself, I am genuinely so happy and excited for all of them.

But most importantly, I can’t wait to meet this new little person that I plan spoil rotten with all my love and crazy auntie advice <3

Despite suffering from a minor chest infection, it was nice to get away from London for a few days. I might have taken this place a little bit for granted last summer whilst visiting for the first time, but honestly, the more time I spend here, the more I’m convinced that I’ll never get tired of this view!

I’d also forgotten how liberating it feels to have access to a car and to be able to drive around without having to rely on public transport. We decided to go on a mini adventure one of the days to explore a close by seaside town.

We had a lovely stroll around the old part of town and enjoyed an aperitif in the sunshine by the sea. Then before heading back home we somehow managed (by luck!) to get a table at what seemed to be one of the most popular restaurants in the area. I had a fish soup that was divine – really wish I could eat more seafood here in the UK!

All in all, a great long weekend spent in the company of two of my favourite people. Not sure what I’ve done to deserve them but thanking my lucky stars every day that I have them in my life. Can’t wait until we’re reunited again in June!
