    One week to go until due date. I often post only my best pictures on Instagram, my personal magazine. But today I am posting the real, raw, unedited deal. The past week, I have been constantly trying to dodge photographers. Understandably they want the money shot ‘me going into labour.’ But I’m not feeling my finest so today when I got caught again and saw the snaps on the Daily Mail I’m not going to lie I was PISSED. But the photos are my reality and I shouldn’t feel upset about that. No I can’t wear bras anymore because they dig in, I wash my hair probably once a week (tonight my scalp got a treat,) and my nails haven’t seen a salon in well over a month. But all of this self care neglect is for a good reason. I am working so hard to complete my whole home renovation in time for my babies arrival, cleaning, organising, I even have my own tool kit now. I am so busy with my business and work tying to tie up loose ends so I can take time off when Dinky arrives and on top of that I have had to deal with being burgled and a looming court case (a tenant not paying rent 😡) So this is my reality, Bridget Jones knickers and all. I’m nine months pregnant and absolutely exhausted, the old glamorous Lydia will be back soon.
