Dear Madeleine, The day you went missing, I had just found out I was pregnant. You were on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal. It was Thursday 3rd May 2007. I’ll remember that date for ever. It was the day we told our families we were going to be parents.

It started out like any other Sunday. We went to a car boot sale in the morning and gave our girls a pound each. Thing-One immediately dropped hers and Thing-Two immediately offered up her own.

So Limetree got in contact with me to let me know about a competition they were running. All I need to do to win is be the best at describing what family happiness means in 140 characters...

Family happiness is the children playing Going On A Bear Hunt round the kitchen table while we sit eating homemade blueberry muffins and drinking pots of tea.

The Independent recently published their top 20 things not to say to a pregnant woman. It’s worth a read. I found pregnancy hideous enough, without the nine-month commentary I received from friends and family. That’s right. I hated being pregnant. I don’t know why it makes people so cross when I say that. Why is there so much pressure to enjoy gestation? I love being a mum but I hated the growing process.
