1) Poor Dexter the Dog continues to be up and down with his little tummy problems; doesn’t he look small in this photo? I don’t know whether it’s the angle or because I’m so gigantically huge at the moment. Also: why am I so orange? I’ll tell you why; I was testing bronzers. All of them. In the world. I didn’t even realise how bronzed I was until I looked through these photos..
Anyway, back to Dexter: he hasn’t shrunk, but I am trying to feed him up a bit. The problem is that he never stops running around – he would be a world champion dog if they judged the competition on stamina alone. He must burn off an Olympian amount of calories every day! Back to the vets this week and hopefully all we be sorted before Baby AMR arrives, otherwise things will be really stressful! (If you want to follow my pregnancy blog, then please do have a look.

2) I mentioned this briefly last week, but just a reminder: Colab (my dry shampoo brand) is running a brilliant competition with Superdrug. One winner and a friend will be sent to Monaco on a luxury trip – Michelin star food, helicopter ride, plush hotel, the lot. To enter, just go on over to the Colab Instagram page. It’s for UK peeps only, this time.
3) I’m starting on a new book, A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson. It’s the sequel to Life After Life, which I loved. I’m going to do a book post really soon as I’ve read some excellent novels recently, so I’ll try and finish this one quickly and add it in. If you’d like to “read along with me” (silently, if you don’t mind) then you can find A God in Ruins here. It has only just come out – I had it on pre-order and it just turned up in the post one morning last week. Lovely surprise… If you’d like to read Life After Life before you get cracking on this one, then that is here online. It’s absolutely brilliant – it’s one story told over and over and over again, but each time something tiny happens differently and the whole story changes. I couldn’t put it down.
