A lot of parents choose not to find out the gender of their unborn baby, but we were far too impatient for that! Early Gender Scan So when you imagine¬†the revealing of the gender, you usually think about the 20 week scan. Nope! This was far too long for Amy to wait.

    Welcome To Crazytown

    By The Way… I’m Leaving You for 3 Months

    There’s Something You Should Know My relationship with Amy was still in the early stages. Already I was about to break some news to her that potentially could put a giant spanner in the works. As I mentioned in a previous post, I was very close to putting a hold on my dating life, as there was no sign of any romance with anybody. I made a decision that would have a major impact on my future. I decided that I was going to take a 3 month volunteering trip to the other side of the world. Little did I know at the time that I was later going to…
