Being pregnant and running your own business has many pros and cons. For example, today is Mothers' Day. I am waddling slowly everywhere, I am in pain, my ankles are already starting to swell, and I'd quite like to be at home. But I am here in the shop, writing a blog in between serving customers, missing the Sconchlet who is at home. But that is the way it is. A sacrifice that is made so that on the flip side, I am relatively in charge of my own working life.

But being pregnant is especially full of pros and cons in a business where you are so in the public's view the whole time. Being pregnant in any situation is an odd one in terms of your own body and other people's reactions. For some reason, you immediately become public property. People touch your bump, when normally it wouldn't be socially acceptable to go up to a random stranger and start caressing their body. People comment on your weight, quite casually. People open up to you about their horror stories of their own birth experiences.

So, 30th April 2016 was a day to remember. For so many reasons, not all of them brilliant...

We were sunning ourselves out in the car park (yes, we are that glamourous), and we even sunned ourselves WHILST IT SNOWED. Crazy weather.

Here were the first arrivals firmly camped out...clearly something was hilarious if the look on Jenny's face is anything to go by...
