About

I’m Jen. South African born, London-based quaintrelle and, if all goes to plan, soon to be solo mother by choice. I have a truly magnificent life: good job, own home, incredible friends, amazing family, and a happily buzzing social life. But at the age of 38 I’ve taken practical action to add that one missing piece to the puzzle of my beautiful life: a small human of my own. This is my open diary sharing the ins and outs of decision-making, IVF, pregnancy, dating, creating a home, and pretty much anything else that crops up and feels relevant.
