This is me. Well, I say 'me.' The usual me doesn't look like I'm smuggling a beach ball up my dress but I'm Jess; 27 weeks pregnant and carrying a little boy.
I live in Merseyside with my 'partner', Mr C. I say 'partner', he still hasn't put a 'ring on it' and he's way too old to be my boyfriend! ;) I am an adopted scouser; moving here at 18 years old for University, meeting Mr C then never moving back! Much to Mr C's dismay and despair(!), I still have a broad Yorkshire accent which to the amusement of him & his 'Scouse' family, causes me to elongate my vowels in a way that they find hilarious. "Noooooo", it's not funny! However, Yorkshire is still 'home' & a place that I will always love.
At this point, I would love to be able to say something interesting like "I enjoy water skiing, deep sea diving and have climbed Mount Everest twice" but I can't. To be honest, I'm not that interesting... I even had to lie on my University application to say that I was an avid skier and an accomplished horse-rider. I have, once being skiing; that was when I was 10 and on a dry ski slope. To be honest I put the skis on, fell on my arse and spent the rest of the time there! Coupled with the fact my 'accomplished horse-riding career' is more 'donkey rides at Blackpool', I am forced to admit that on paper, I'm a bit of a bore! Realistically, I enjoy: shopping, eating out at restaurants that we cannot afford, watching Corrie with a big bar of chocolate, long bubble baths and pointlessly chatting on the phone with friends for hours. See, not particularly interesting or exciting at all! :)
I am a qualified primary school teacher but currently working in education administration whilst waiting for the arrival of our son! I am taking a year off to be a full time mummy then will hopefully return to the classroom when our little one is a year old.
I hope you enjoy! (& son if you're reading, i totally WAS cool!)
Well since writing the above, ALOT has changed! I'm no longer 27 weeks pregnant and looking like i'm smuggling a beach ball under my dress (although i'm still carrying a few extra pounds!), I am now a proud mummy to Freddie; my beautiful big boy. Weighing 10lbs 1 1/2 oz and born on 2.9.12, we are settling into our new life together in a flurry of nappies, feeds and cuddles. I could not be happier and I honestly don't know what I did without him. It sounds cliche but it's like he's completed me as a person. He's now 5 weeks old and weighing 12lbs 10oz and I hope to continue to update you on our adventures together!
