how big is baby?

If you are pregnant it’s quite hard to imagine what size your baby is. If you need a visual clue then check out this from The Bump. I’m on week 25 so I have a little baby aubergine (eggplant) in me!

funny money

I just took delivery of alot of Japanese yen in time for our holiday. It’s a bit scary because there’s 10,000 yen notes which seem alot to me but are worth £42 (at time of writing).

I found the best deal for ordering foreign money through this comparison site: Travel Money Maximiser. We’ve previously used to Post Office but this time we went through Travelcare which had a better exchange rate and free delivery.
