Bridget Jones’s Baby

Bridget’s focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch … she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.

After what felt like a lifetime of waiting (can be very dramatic in affairs of the Jones) yesterday I went to see Bridget Jones’ Baby. And oh my god, it was worth the wait. Set many, many years after the Edge of Reason, Baby see’s Bridget at her goal weight, at the top of her career and, once again, alone – sadly Mark Darcy has married someone that is hopefully not as awful as Natasha, and Bridget has never fully gotten over him. It is on a mission to finally move on that Bridget meets Jack, before a reunion of sorts a week later with Mark where, in true Mark and Bridget fashion, she has a profiterole in her hair and he is bumbling about divorce. These two ‘puppet shows,’ as a grown up Shaz refers to them in front of her children, result in an unplanned pregnancy… Oops.

Decoding The Dog Walk

^^ Walkies are tiring.

We have now been walking Cora for almost a week. She is doing pretty well all said and done, socializing and keeping her jaws to herself and exposing her belly in a bid to ward off danger. Before my eyes the dog walking process has revealed a facet of our puppy I had feared did not exist – an angelic side previously eclipsed by a supposed affiliation with Satan (RIP hairdryer, you were loved.)

Cold Weather

I like cold weather. I like the sound and smell of rain, and I like being woken by thunderstorms. Enormous coats and blanket sized scarves. Cups of tea used as hand warmers and too-big jumpers taken from my boyfriend’s side of the wardrobe. I like apple and cinnamon scented candles, slow cooked casseroles and stews and anything made with gravy and red wine.

Tortilla Face

Earlier this week, David and I had a disagreement over fajitas. The pup had been hassling us while we ate and while I wanted to banish her to the kitchen with her toys, D saw it as a teaching moment. Although usually this would be fine, teaching moments are only well and good until someone’s Mexican food gets cold, do you see what I’m saying?



noun
  1. a pair of socks with foxes on them.
  2. a lifestyle blog.
