Finding Out at the 20 Week Scan


The first time I was pregnant with Chiplet, there was never any question about finding out the gender of the baby. My husband (or boyfriend at the time) and I both wanted a surprise. I remember there being little doubt in my mind (or heart) that it was a boy that I was carrying though. I just felt like I was going to have a son and I even had a dream about his face.

So this time around, we wanted to find out what we were having; mostly because Chiplet seemed convinced that he only wanted a brother. Once he realised he couldn’t choose, he then moved onto being convinced it was a little sister “because I am a boy Mummy and it must be a girl.”

So we set off for our 20 week scan today and everything was where it should be. We have a very wriggly little one – so the nickname Wriglet is really quite apt. It turns out that Wriglet doesn’t want us to know. The Ultrasound Technician hazarded a guess, but was not willing to stand by it due to too much movement.

I think I know in my heart what we are having though.



I’m back


It’s been 15 months since I decided to take a break from the old blogging. I was really in a strange place with work and personal life and it felt like the blog was just one step too far in the direction of being overloaded.

Since March 2015, I have launched my own business as a marketing consultant for social enterprises and charities and I haven’t really looked back at the redundancy which fired up the process.

Working for myself has given me a much needed balance to my life and allowed me to repair the bits that felt a little bit broken.

So now, I am back into the swing of life, I start thinking about hobbies that I enjoyed that have fallen by the wayside… and writing for pleasure is one of those things. So I am starting back on┬áDinky Thinks.

I also have something else that has prompted this return – and that is the news that I am expecting my second child in December. So I would like to document the early years as I did with Chiplet.

So hello – if anyone is still there ­čÖé

Here is where we are at now in our little family – Me, The Boy, Chiplet and Wriglet (the bump)
