[00:01:42] Hello everybody. And welcome to this week’s episode of 50 shades of motherhood. Now, this episode I am super excited about is Halloween, probably one of my favourite times of the whole year and this week, it is all about having a chat with another mum about spooky ghost stories and eery happenings. I invite on this week, my dear cousin, Stephanie, because Stephanie and I have shared ghost stories since, since we could talk probably, um, and Stephanie has a ton of eery ghost stories that I’m really excited to talk about live on a podcast. So hope you enjoy this episode, share this with any other friends that love spooky stuff and happy Halloween.

[00:02:52] Hello everybody. And welcome to this week’s episode of 50 shades of motherhood this week. I am speaking to my lovely cousin, Stephanie, and we are going to be talking about haunted happenings and different ghost stories and freaky stories around Halloween. So hello, Stephanie, how are you? 

[00:03:14] Stephanie: Hello. I’m good. Thank you. How are you? 

[00:03:16] Carla: I’m very well, thank you very well. It’s lovely to speak to you again. 

[00:03:20] Stephanie: Yes, definitely. 

[00:03:21] Carla: So, Stephanie, we used to talk about kind of your, what you went through, um, and what you could kind of see and stuff like that. When you were younger. So I wanted to invite you onto this episode to kind of share that with everyone.

[00:03:37] And also it really fascinated me at the time as well, because it’s so, so let’s go back to the beginning Stephanie, so when did you start to feel that you could see things or hear things or, and stuff like that?

[00:03:55]Stephanie:  I’m not. I’m not a hundred percent sure, but I know I do always kind of, when I was younger, I just get like the shivers down your spine, or I get that kind of like weird feeling like somebody else’s in the room or like, just like something wasn’t quite right.

[00:04:13] But it wouldn’t be like all the time. So I kind of was like, well, it’s not where I am, because it would be like my grandma’s house or something. And it’d be absolutely fine one time. And then another time. Like, I remember, I don’t even know how old I was. We were standing in the hallway between like the two bedrooms and the bathroom, and like heard like the floor creak behind me.

[00:04:39] And, you know, when you get like a shiver down your spine, like a full-on thing, I had that, and I remember feeling really bizarre when it happened. Like almost like something had walked through me because it just felt strange. And there was always bits of my grandma’s house that I just did not like to be around or would kind of make me feel a bit creeped out. And I’d say I was probably. Oh, I didn’t know. I reckon like 11, 12 ish, like me becoming up to teenage years when that started happening, unless I blocked stuff out that happened before. I don’t know. 

[00:05:20] Carla: So strange. So have you had, have you had it happen a few times stuff like this, Stephanie? 

[00:05:26] Stephanie: Yeah. I’ve got probably a few stories to tell 

[00:05:33] Carla: Yes that’s it, it’s Halloween isnt it. I mean, do you know what it’s funny actually, because with these types of stories in daytime, I’m like, yeah, it’s absolutely real that ghosts and stuff like that exist. And then at night time when I’m on my own it’s pitch black. I’m like, no, they don’t, they don’t it’s load of rubbish. 

[00:05:51] Stephanie: Oh my God. I know. I’ve just been watching on Netflix. You know, they’ve got the, um, The haunted thing of hotel Blithe or something like that.

[00:06:01]Carla:  Oh I saw that, yes.

[00:06:03]Stephanie:  Yeah. Completely up my street, but like I watch it and then sometimes I’m like, Oh, I don’t know if I want to be watching this right now. Like, it’s really starting to creep me out.

[00:06:12] Carla: Oh goodness. I know. I know. That’s it. I mean, I, I personally, I’m trying to think of any stories I’ve got, but I, me and my brother have a few from our old house but. Do you know? It’s hard for me because it’s happened a couple of times some creepy things, but I could never a hundred percent say a hundred percent I’ve seen anything or, or whatever. But you’ve, you’ve always had these kinds of feelings from being, from being younger. So what is your, what are your stories then Stephanie? 

[00:06:43] Stephanie: Okay. So one of them, which was possibly one of the scarier ones that I’ve had, um, where I was in my bedroom and a man, a tall man with a hat on kind of like a, like a new age shepherd near like a proper big hat and a proper anorak type coat on literally came out of my wardrobe, came towards me and then kind of lay on top of me. I remember just lying there, thinking. Oh, God, like, I don’t actually know what to do. And a few people. Yeah. And a few people have said that it could have been like sleep paralysis or something, but it definitely felt so real. And I know in my parents’ house, like, I’d see shadows sometimes going up and down the stairs. Like if I needed to go to the toilet at night time, I’d have to look out to see if I could see anything before I went, because it wouldn’t be all the time. And then. Another time in the kitchen. 

[00:07:50] Carla: Oh god that is freaky. That is freaky. How old were you then, then when you were about 11, then?

[00:07:56] Stephanie: I think I was just getting into my, my teens, maybe 12, 13, something like that. Um, and it was kind of strange and I think it definitely. You do question like, was I dreaming? Am I little bit insane, but it felt really real. And then when you start to have, like, I had a few other ones say seeing the shadows up and down the stairs, and then another one downstairs in the kitchen where I went into the kitchen to get some water and turned around and there was a same figure standing behind me.

[00:08:30] Carla: Oh my god, the same one that came out your wardrobe? 

[00:08:34] Stephanie: Yeah. So it had the hat on. 

[00:08:36] Carla: Oh God, what were they like see-through or like, what did it look like? 

[00:08:41] Stephanie: So this one was just literally a black shadow, but you know how like a shadow is quite crisp. Yeah. It’s not crisp at all around the edges. Like it’s quite fluffy 

[00:08:55] Carla: Like hollow almost.

[00:08:57] Stephanie: Yeah. And it’s almost like it, like, you can’t see the fingers or the hands and things like that. It’s just not quite completed or complete probably the better way to say it. 

[00:09:10] Carla: What did you do when you turn around? 

[00:09:13] Stephanie: I jumped and then I went to say something and then before I could say something, it disappeared and then I quickly left. 

[00:09:23] Carla: Oh my God. That is so, so like even if it, if it was sleep paralysis, you know, you seen the same figure.

[00:09:32] Stephanie: Thing twice. Yeah. 

[00:09:34] Carla: Oh my God. 

[00:09:35] Stephanie: Which is so strange. 

[00:09:38] Carla: Oh my God. I wouldn’t ever, I mean, how did you even just walk around the house anymore where you just used to it? 

[00:09:44] Stephanie: I kind of. If I was, I wouldn’t wander around the house. I had to have a reason to go somewhere. So like to go to my bedroom to go in my bedroom and I’ll stay in my bedroom and I’d do my teeth on the way into my bedroom. So there wasn’t much kind of going backwards and forwards. 

[00:09:59] Carla: Yeah. Oh, that’s so sad when you were a kid, like to feel like that. Did cause you’ve got your twin sister, Emma, obviously my cousin as well, but did she not see anything ever?

[00:10:11] Stephanie: I don’t know if she saw anything. I think she felt that the house was, felt a bit strange at times. Um, but I don’t remember her ever saying that she saw anything, but. Like one of her friends did, and one of Jamie’s friends also saw something as well. So it fills me with hope that it’s not just my imagination and actually something.

[00:10:36] Carla: Oh, so that was all in that house to what, what other things have you had Stephanie? 

[00:10:41]Stephanie:  So, um, at uni where, um, I was in halls, it was on a hospital site. Um, and this is probably the best one. This is the one that made me kind of go like it kind of put pieces together. So like where we went downstairs to see our downstairs flat, flat mates, me and my flatmate went downstairs and we were stood in the doorway and the flats were kind of long. Kind of long with the rooms coming off the corridor, if that makes sense. So you’d stand in the hallway and the kitchen is down the end and we were stood by the door and we were just talking to them and then out of the kitchen, um, came like a figure and I did a double take, um, cause I felt like they weren’t somebody who should be living in flats. And I thought, Oh, if it’s one of their friends or whatever, I’ll just say, hi. I mean, I’d say hi, if it was who I knew as well. But if it was a friend, I’d make a bit more of an effort. Yeah. This figure came out and it was wearing orange, like a burnt orange scrub top, but it seemed to have sort of a green or blue top underneath and on the left-hand side where like your pocket would be on a nurse’s uniform. There were some pens in there. And then again, there was no hands. And then the legs also in the kind of burnt orange scrubs, and you could see it walking, but there was no, no feet. And it came towards me and my friend, my friend had her back towards it. And as it walked past my friend, my friend like shuddered, you know, that walking over the grave feeling. 

[00:12:34] Carla: Oh God. 

[00:12:36] Stephanie: And I was like, Oh, maybe that was something a bit creepy. And then it just walked out the door. And then that was it.

[00:12:44]Carla:  Did your friend see it then? 

[00:12:46] Stephanie: No

[00:12:47] Carla: Because it all happened so quickly kind of thing. 

[00:12:50] Stephanie: Yeah. And I think, cause I didn’t say anything, but I said to her afterwards, Oh, did you see anything? Cause I said, you never knew you like shivered. Like I thought I saw something walk past you. And she was like, Oh no, but that’s really creepy. Because most people who stayed in those flats saw something, or had experiences, they were horrible to stay in. Um, like we’d have the radio turn on for no reason. You’d see shadows walking along the back door between the toilet and the end room. You’d have um, that feeling of like dread, like something bad is in there. And it would just be in the corridor. So if you were in your room you’d be ok,  sometimes you’d have weird feelings in there, but it seems to be more in the corridors, like the communal areas that it just wouldn’t feel good, like going into the kitchen. Like, none of us wanted to do that at all. Like, it was just so creepy, I think one of my flatmates had. I can’t remember what he said happened. He had a weird experience in there as well, but the radio came on and it was so loud. And I remember having to go in and turn it off and I was like, I really don’t want to do this.

[00:14:08] Carla: That would freak me out. Oh my goodness. Yeah. Cause they say don’t, they, they say some people are seers and some people aren’t. Like some people say things like my dad swears he sees things and my brother again, he’s like you, um, and he sees things and it’s like, Oh God, I think, I don’t think I could cope.

[00:14:30]Stephanie:  Oh, it was horrible. Like we lived in there for three years still mind, but it was creepy as and like, none of us wants to be in there by, by ourselves.

[00:14:42] Carla: Oh, my God.

[00:14:43]Stephanie:  It was horrible. Um, 

[00:14:46] Carla: Do you get any , have you had anything since then? Or do you kind of not see as much now? Cause you used to see things didn’t you quite a bit. 

[00:14:55] Stephanie: Yeah, I did use to, and like I remember seeing like, like figures, like in random places or get bizarre, bizarre feelings. And I know at work. Well, where I trained. I remember seeing like a lady with a lantern, um, when I was sleeping on my break. So quite a bizarre  thing to see, I remember thinking, Oh, that’s a bit strange. Um, 

[00:15:23] Carla: Oh God. Yeah, because you, you work in a hospital, don’t you? So, yeah. So, I mean, gosh 

[00:15:29] Stephanie: Ghost stories go around in those places as well.

[00:15:32] Carla: Is there quite a few stories from, from in there?

[00:15:36]Stephanie:  Yeah. So where I work now, I’m not going to name it cause don’t want to creep people out. Um, so we’ve got the parents accommodation and then you’ve, people have said things like they’ve heard at nighttime, like sounds like a bird flying into the window. And a few people would be like, okay, but it’s the middle of the night? What birds do you know that flight at night time? 

[00:16:05] Carla: Oh God. Yeah. 

[00:16:07] Stephanie: To like actually bang into it. Yeah. And people have felt Um, like the beds just shake aswell. That’s actually one that my sister had. She had a bed shaking.

[00:16:21] Carla: What at the house? 

[00:16:23] Stephanie: Yeah. Yeah. Our parents, she had the bed shaking and one of her flats as well, or houses at uni. She had a funny experience there, as well. Where she saw like a lady come into her room and like tidying things away or something. I can’t remember now. So she, yeah, she had that anyway. I’m digressing.

[00:16:46] Carla: No, no. Oh my goodness. Do you know what it’s really, I just find it fascinating because I, have I ever told you, I used to go to like these kind of haunted nights, they’re called.

[00:16:59] Stephanie: Yeah. I don’t know how you did that.

[00:17:01]Carla:  Oh my God. Well. I don’t know in a group I’m like really confident, like I’m like, yeah, I’m not bothered, not bothered. If you put me on my own in a room, like now I’m actually recording. I’m actually like turning rounds, like freaking out because of these stories that you’ve told me. And there is a wardrobe in here that’s like partly open it’s freaking me out now. I can’t cope with it actually, I should have, I should have thought about this before we started recording. But once I went to a place called Salmesbury Hall, which is in Lancashire, if you ever come up, Stephanie will have to go but one of the places there they basically do a night where you pay, um, I think it’s 55 pounds. And then what they tell you the history about the building, and then they let you go off and kind of explore. They turn all the lights off and you go round with torches and then you can take pictures. And it’s a very old building and I’d like to pretend I knew all the history about it, but I don’t unfortunately. I can’t remember, but, um, on one of the pictures, so you go round and you just you’re allowed to just take pictures as, and when you want. So I took loads and loads and loads of pictures and didn’t think anything of it thought it was a really good experience. Certain things like you, you kind of stand in a circle and your hear like banging or, you know, like, um, and they’d say if anyone is there will you knock  and you hear like the odd knock. Oh you would hear it. 

[00:18:32] Stephanie: That fills me with dread.

[00:18:33] Carla: Oh my goodness. It was like the most haunted, you know, the film. I was like, I was Evette Fielding in there, but anyway, it was, so they were doing that, and it was, it was really freaky, but on the way home, um, I’d got my new Samsung, you know,  those slide up ones when they were like a pink Samsung phone and it was new, and I was flicking through the pictures. And do you know exactly how you described the ghost on that? There was an outline of a monk. So you could see the outline of the monk and put it was see-through as well. It was really weird. It’s like you could work out the colour that the clothes should have been. It was like Brown. 

[00:19:15] You can see the colour, but it was, but you could see through it. So it was a white wall. It was where the, um, where the fireplace was, it was just a white wall, but you could see a man stood there in a Monks outfit. You could see the beads around the neck. You can just see it as clear as anything on this picture. And the next day I showed a few people that, cause I was thinking I was getting my nails done I was showing people like, Oh my God, can you believe this?

[00:19:42] And were like, you should send it into the newspaper because there was no denying that was a ghost. Yeah. It was just, it was so clear and you know, that night. Typically, this is, this is me with wine. I was out with my friends and I was showing people the picture and it fell in my wine, my phone, and it never worked again. And I lost that picture. I was absolutely devastated because it was, it was the clearest thing I’ve ever seen towards like a ghostly figure. Uh, it was freaky, but I went on to do a few more of those tours, but. Yeah, they were good. Really. I mean, a few times would get like, um, I did do a Ouija board and stuff. I know they say you shouldn’t don’t they, but there was loads of people doing it. And I was like, Oh, I love a little go. And then the next minute they were like, who does he want to, speak to, you. That’s what he said. And then started saying, spelling out the name Henry Thomas, which is our granddad. Um, Yeah, we never met him, but that’s what it spelled out anyway. Then I was like, no I’m freaked out. I’m not doing that, but it was really weird. But I mean, that’s not even any relation to the place, but it was just, it was just freaky. Anyway. Uh, I haven’t been to one of those for a while, cause I am interested in that kind of thing, but I’m also like to, you know, I’m interested, you know, when I feel safe, but you know at night time when you ‘re about to go to bed, like we are going to be doing soon, I’m like, nah, it’s not real.

[00:21:16] Stephanie: I’d be scared of invite in something in what if something attaches itself and starts doing creepy stuff like. 

[00:21:23] Carla: That’s what I was a bit worried about, to be honest that’s yeah, it put me off doing anything like that, because that’s what they say. Don’t they? I mean, me and my friends, it’s funny when we start talking, I can kind of think of other things that we’ve done, but me and my friend, we oh, there was another story, god do you know,  it’s funny isn’t it coming back, back. It’s coming back. Basically. My brother used to see, um, something. And do you remember where we used to live in our old, old house? Yeah, my brother used to see things in there quite a lot. Like he saw someone go up the stairs and stuff like that. I didn’t really see anything, but I do remember this one particular day, I, um, was playing with my toys and all of a sudden, I just heard this massive bang, right. And within one bang, every single cupboard door was open. Every single drawer was open my door, bang shut. And it was just, I was just playing with my toys and I looked up and everything was open up. And I remember. Just freaking out. What was I playing with? I was playing with a light I got from the circus and I was with a friend, actually, um, a friend, uh, she, she saw it as well and it was a weird thing. We just run downstairs as fast as we could. But yeah, that was, that was strange actually. 

[00:22:43] But, um, and then there was one more thing that happened when, uh, me and my brother, we used to, I don’t know why we used to share a room. I think I was probably a bit scared as I am with everything, but, um, we were in, um, our beds and we could see there was a wardrobe outside our room and we could see a shadow against the wardrobe and it was quite a big house. And, um, yeah. We said we could see the shadow with his hands on his hips. Uh, me and my brother would just lay in bed and my brother was like, Dad, stop, stop, go away, dad like that. Anyway, nothing didn’t hear anything anyway. And then. My brother went, dad, stop it. And then we heard my mum and dad shout from upstairs. What? What?

[00:23:31] Anyway, what do you want? Go to bed. And we were like, what the hell? Anyway, the shadow had gone by then, but that was the only, yeah, there was, that was, um, a bit of a weird one as well, but.

[00:23:44] Stephanie: It’s so weird.

[00:23:45]Carla:  It is, it is. I mean there must be something out there for people

[00:23:50] Stephanie: There a hundred percent is. 

[00:23:52] Carla: Yeah, it really is. It’s very strange. Isn’t it? Because with the ghostly kind of things, you just think, where, what is it that makes someone appear? You know, what, what is it that makes someone be a ghost and not like rest? Do you know what I mean?

[00:24:09]Stephanie:  Yeah. So I used to watch, like, after having these experiences yeah. I did start watching shows that kind of looked into them and explained things. And apparently there’s quite, there is so many different theories. So some people say it’s because they’re attached to something or something needs to get back to right place. Some say it’s like, uh, mm, there is a right word for it, but where they just repeat what they’re doing, that they’re just going about their day. They’ve got no idea that they’ve died. They’re just putting the washing away or going for a walk or something and they do it over and over and over and over again. And then you’ve got, obviously the more active ones that. Doing creepy things. Nobody wants one of those. yeah. 

[00:25:01] Carla: Yeah. Well, you know what? Sometimes when I sit back and think about it, I think, how do we know? Now this is probably getting a bit too deep for a podcast, but how do we know that there’s not different worlds living at different times? 

[00:25:14] Stephanie: Like layers?

[00:25:15] Carla: Yeah. Like we are all just crossing over into each other’s worlds a little bit. 

[00:25:20] Stephanie: Yeah. 

[00:25:21] Carla: Do you know?

[00:25:21]Stephanie:  Yeah. Thats exactly what I thought.

[00:25:23] Carla: Yeah like the 19 hundreds are still happening in this world, but we’re not kind of in way with the time we were in a totally different kind of place. And sometimes we cross over, I don’t know. 

[00:25:38] Stephanie: Yeah. Yeah. Like we interrupt because they say things it’s like, um, to do with like, if there’s limestone around or something that, that can make things appear more. If there’s a thunderstorm cause electricity that can make things, appear more. Um, there was another one as well. There’s like different environmental factors that can make things appear more. Yeah and be more kind of there. 

[00:26:04] Carla: It’s so strange. Isn’t it? It really is 

[00:26:07] Stephanie: strange. 

[00:26:09] Carla: So do you still, uh, when was the last time you did see something, Stephanie, cause you, you were quite in tune with your spiritual side aren’t you, you must be to be able to see all of those things.

[00:26:20] Stephanie: So the last time I saw something was when I was staying at, my now husband’s house. I was again asleep next to a wardrobe.

[00:26:32] Carla: Oh god

[00:26:37] Stephanie: And I woke up and, uh, my, um, there was like a noughts and crosses grid on my arm. And I woke up and I was like, Oh, that’s really strange. And I was kind of thinking like, did I have a restless night? What did I do? And I was like, I actually didn’t do anything, but it was the most perfect, noughts and crosses grid. Um, and I kind of was like, Oh, like mentioned it and I was like oh thats a bit creepy.

[00:27:05] Carla: What, as in the next day you woke up and it was actually on there?

[00:27:09] Stephanie: In the morning. Yeah. It was on my arm. Like a scratch. It was a scratch. So like where as if, you know, like when you scratch yourself and it comes up in those, um, like red welts almost.

[00:27:21] Carla: Yeah.

[00:27:22]Stephanie:  It was like that on my arm. And then a few days later, I was in, I can’t remember where I was sat in the lounge or in the conservatory. And, um, my sister-in-law had come in or somebody else to come into the house. So I was looking towards where everybody comes in and we were just chatting. And then in, behind them came in like this tall, skinny finger. And just literally just walked in behind them and before it got to the kitchen, it just simply disappeared. And I said to my, um, husband, I was like, so just out of curiosity, especially after having my arm thing, I was like, has anybody ever felt something weird here or has, has anything happened like along this street or something like that because of the way that the person walked through, it was almost as if they were just going to keep walking  to the like next door or whatever. No nothing’s really ever happened. And I said, well, Has anyone happened to somebody? Has anybody like died in one of these houses? Just because it felt so weird, but also why was I asking that question? Very strange question. Just to come out with, and it turned out that one of their neighbours had committed suicide and apparently he was a tall thin guy.

[00:28:41] Oh, I know. I couldn’t see any of his features other than the fact that he was tall and slim and he was wearing dark clothes. So I couldn’t really, like jeans and a black top, for example, it was that sort of colour. Um, and I can’t give any more examples. And then when he said that, I was like, Oh, now I’m really creeped out. Now I’m really, really freaked out. And like we were waiting for our house to go through. We were moving into our own house and I was actually like, c’mon, let’s move. Let’s get out of here because I’m starting to get creeped out. 

[00:29:13] Carla: Oh my god it’s so weird. And so they wouldn’t have seen him then, like, 

[00:29:22] Stephanie: No, they didn’t see him. 

[00:29:23] Carla: And have they ever seen him?

[00:29:25] Stephanie: They said they didn’t, but I feel like sometimes people either forget or they pass it off as something else, or they don’t want to see it. Like, believe it, like say, Oh no, it’s not real. So, I mean, they can always get back to me. Maybe if they listen to this, they can let me know. 

[00:29:41] Carla: Yeah. Do you know what I think you’re right with that, because I think you have to probably be a certain type of person and almost be willing to accept what you see. To see. Yeah. Do you know what I mean? 

[00:29:55] Stephanie: Yeah. And it’s always what I always find as well as it’s always quite a peaceful feeling at the time like when you see them, like the ones that I, other than the one that came out of the wardrobe and lay on me all the others I’ve seen other than maybe making me jump if I’ve not like, when I turned around and I saw the bloke behind me, but. All, the other ones, it’s all been really peaceful. I’ve never had that, you know, in a horror movie where everyone’s screens and runs away from the ghosts walking through or whatever. I’ve never had that feeling. It’s always felt really calm and it’s almost like the build up to it. So like at work, I’ve had a couple of weird experiences, like when I was in one of the offices, um, All the computer screens were off.

[00:30:43] And then literally all at the same time they all turned on. And then, which was just, I’d say strange in itself. And then when I was, um, like lying down, like on a night shift, we’re not allowed to sleep, but we can have a rest. Um, I got woken up by somebody like rubbing their hand into my chest, like on my ribs, you know, like where it’s quite sore, like where your sternum and stuff is.

[00:31:08] Yes. It was rubbing on that. And I was like, Oh, that really hurt. And then I was like, okay, who am I talking to? Right, right now. And I was like, God, that really hurt. Like, I felt really bruised afterwards. Um, but that was probably the last one, but that wasn’t that long ago. That was this year that I had that, um, yeah, that really hurt. So, that’s probably the most physical, other than the scratch. That’s the most physical. I’ve ever felt anything. 

[00:31:38] Carla: And, but you didn’t see anything at that time. It was more the feeling. 

[00:31:42] Stephanie: Yeah. And I could feel myself rocket and as if somebody’s like was literally rubbing, their like knuckles into my, my chest.

[00:31:51] Carla: Oh, it’s weird. Isn’t it? 

[00:31:54] Stephanie: Yeah. 

[00:31:55] Carla: It is. It’s funny actually, because as you think back, I think everyone would be the same, you know, everyone thinks, Oh, I’ve not really got much to say. And then when you actually talk through things, actually that was weird. That was weird. That was weird. Oh, it is strange. It’s so strange.

[00:32:13] No but thank you, Stephanie, for sharing your stories on this episode, I’m all for these kinds of haunted happening. So thanks very much. And you can find Stephanie, you don’t blog about a haunted stuff, Stephanie, but Stephanie has fabulous blog. Um, can you just tell us a little bit about that again? Just for anyone.

[00:32:37] Stephanie: So it’s called, um, a farm and a baby. It’s got absolutely nothing to do of a farm, but it’s basically a blog. I started when I found out that my son had a, um, congenital anomaly where his foot hadn’t developed properly. And it was just my way of coping. So you’ve got lots of, kind of emotional blogs and then some cute bump pictures and a few really cute feet pictures on there as well. And you’ll find us on Instagram as well on the tag, a farm and a baby. 

[00:33:10] Carla: Oh, amazing thank you, Stephanie. 

[00:33:13] Stephanie: Yeah, no problem. Thank you.
