So my party girl ways have been cured of late and I have become settled in my soon to be future of cosy days and nights in with no alcohol and no drama..and I love it. Today was the day we would be finding ut if our little baby would be all ok tucked up inside me and no problems. I have been having terrible pains and every worst case scenario has been flowing through my brain... so this morning at 10.48am we saw our beautiful little baby for the first time and there was nothing but a gorgeous strong heartbeat and a wriggly body to see!!!! 
I cried little tears of happiness and then following our second scan and a clearer picture I called my mum..Nanna Winne who was waiting in anticipation and fear just before boarding her flight on holiday!! She cried as I sent her the picture and said Hi Nanna, I'm safe and happy and I hope you have a nice holiday...! She loved it!! Its emotion city in our family at the best of times but this amazing miracle babba seems to have the perfect timing..I feel like its binded us all together in a way that wont ever be broken..a bind that was always there but ha just shown me how important family are..and how loved I am by them. Today is a bloody bloody good day.. and then all our friends on facebook have been amazed and excited and so happy we've had about 80 comments saying how brill this all is!!Just wanted to share all that with you. I am happy and relieved and more excited than I ever knew I could be!!!! Roll on March 7th 2012. xxx

Riotscleanup's Blog

Riotscleanup's Blog

Inspirational words from a chap with a very big heart and soul. A lot of Londoners owe him thanks. Makes me feel a bit better that there are a lot of amazing people out there aswell as the scummy ones.


Sad times for 'Great' Britain

Last night I sat up until 2am on twitter and Facebook with Sky News firmly fixed on the telebox for 4 hours. The sights that we were watching looked nothing short of a horror film, looting, fires, scared residents and hundreds maybe thousands of people running riot in our beautiful capital... As the night went on so did the violence this time in Bristol, Birmingham and Liverpool.  


The main offenders apparently are young kids, smashing up their own futures, their own community, their friends and families home towns. Do they have any brains at all, and no I do not agree that its all our governments fault. I do not agree that we are not providing enough opportunities for these kids. I grew up in a pretty rough area up north, where there was nothing to do at all, just a few playing fields, but no shops no cinemas, no jobs no opportunities, myself and all my friends from school have not all gone on to be criminals, not one of them would ever condone breaking into a shop and taking what they wanted or setting fire to someone's livelihood. I think the kids are not stupid, they do know what they;re doing, they proved last night that we are all scared to stop them. Even the police could not stop them. I personally would like to think I would knock on all my neighbours houses and we'd all bloody stand in front of our homes and businesses and make a united front to take a stand against these yobs. They need to see we will not be scared by them. They are children, they are not brandishing guns and knives they are using bins and bollards and the fact they feel they are untouchable to terrorise. We have solidarity and pride in our homes and towns to help us defeat this unthinkable rebellion.  

I followed Hants Police twitter last night and it reassured me that although there are chancer, kids who think that we should 'show London how its done' trying to organise riots in my home town, the police are all over it and I feel safe and sound even though I live right in the centre of where the looting would start if it ever materialised.  I did comment to my other half almost in  tears that I was so sad to be bringing our new baby into this world but I think with enough people with our mindsets we will overcome this ridiculous activity and show them it will not be condoned. 

I woke up and checked twitter as I do most mornings (nosey parker that I am) and it actually made me smile so much to see the main trending topic was #riotcleanup. That 38,000 people were following and organising clean up operations that the council started at 5.30am.

These are the pople thats hearts and community spirit will hopefully overcome the bad air that these yobs have left behind. Please help if you can. My best friend was amongst the horror last night in clapham and we spoke while she was too scared to leave the flat as she was 1 road away from the high street were they were looting crazy. It brings more to home the fact that this could be happening to any of us in any of our towns. If you want to help then these guys are projecting positive messages and proactively sorting the streets out. 

Big love to them all.
