I got a tattoo! Updates ahoy.Hello Deviants! How's it going? Long time no see. My child takes up all my time.ALL MY TIME. Aren't these things meant to sleep at some point?!Anyway.AAAAGES AGO. Seriously. So long ago this happened -I saw this by HenarTorinos which is one of my all time favourite pieces on the site.So I commissioned a tattoo design.Then I never got it done as I am a huge wimp and scared of pain and piercings and veins and needles.Then I gave birth and thought "I CAN DO ANYTHING".So I went and got it done. Joy. I didn't cry, vomit, punch the tattooist or run away! Success.Scream is doing brilliantly. He is nine months now.Currently shouting at his Dad. He enjoys shouting.Hope you're all doing brilliantly - I hope to be back in force one day but LIFE HATES ME.I love you.
Anyone out there?Hey guys! How's it going? Not been on for AGES but small Scream just takes up all my time so I basically do NOTHING.How are you all?I am okay apart from having no time to do anything! I miss you guys. ;_;But I have this gorgeous man -- so its not all bad!

I will post him out next week.So the exciting details -Gabriel John Procter, born at 2pm on December the 23rd 2014 weighing 6lb 3oz.Some hilarious moments from my birthing -The first lady examined said that I was 3cm dilated and she could feel the head - and this is where my lack of self control sets in - I whispered "push it back in" to her. :') I had already told her I was dying about twice.Best conversation EVER -Midwife- "We need you to roll onto your back."Me - "I will after I use the toilet."Midwife - "No, there's not time, lets roll you over."Me - "I really need the toilet."Midwife - "Lets roll you over."Me - "...let me just go to the toilet."Midwife - "Husband help roll her." "Noooo." Seriously high pitched and pathetic,

Soo new logo eh? | Harass my Mother | Still fetusyWell look at that. A fancypants new logo!Do we like it?I don't. *Lies on the floor of the journal*I don't hate it, it's just... a bit... ugly? I don't know. It reminds me of a tube station map or something in the medical profession. Or that cactus cartoon thing that is always running.And it is too green. Maybe I am getting old. I am sure I'll get used to it, there was something satisfying about the old one though. Oh well. Times must change. ----Some of you may know that I have a Facebook page dedicated to harassing my Mother. I photoshop her head on things, I tell amusing stories of her weirdness and I detail the awful things I do to her, like sewing her jumper to the sofa or making her fit as many marshmallows into her mouth as possible.Here is one example, I am doing an Advent Calendar for her, this is my favourite so far.Such. Fun.She hasn't got a Facebook account or really acces

Baby gender revealed!We went to the hospital as you do and had the 20 week scan. Baby was there, wriggling about and being all alien like and scary. Every now and then a hand appeared and then you could see a spine. Freaky. Seriously I was creeped out.Then the scanner woman pointed out the placenta and I felt the need to vomit into my mouth. Yeah, I'm not good with these things. Christ knows what'll happen at the birth! It will be HILARIOUS.So yes, baby is there wiggling about, avoiding the scan thing. When the lady first looked it was upside down! She asked if we'd like to know the gender if she could tell. We said yeah it was okay. So she had a little look at their bits and pieces and the baby splayed their legs and we got an eyeful of fetusy boy bits! So its a boy AND WHAT A BOY. I laughed as the bits and pieces flapped about. I was a little sad as girl clothes are so much prettier and fancier but as long as he is healthy I am thrilled, some people can't have kids so I'm certai
