Hi, I’m mumsymidwife and I have a problem.
I need to confess… I am craving some strange things:
- The smell of a new carpet.
- The smell of a new Hoover (only the upright type, none of your “Henry” crap).
- The smell of a new IKEA mattress (HAMARVIK I <3 you).
- The smell of a freshly painted wall.
and finally, at least remotely normally,
- Crushed ice.
All I ask is that you don’t judge me… but I will let you laugh. I have no idea where these come from. You hear that it’s because you need a certain food group. But carpet isn’t a food group! Neither is mattress!
I can’t describe it. Every time a Hoover comes on the telly (especially the Vax cordless advert that Miranda Hart narrates. That is the double header with carpet AND a Hoover) my mouth waters and I crave the smell like I’ve never wanted something so much in my life.
I thought I’d heard it all. Someone in “Take a Break” ate sofas when she was pregnant. I also know the old wives tale of coal. But Hoovers? Bleeding Hoovers?
I have no more words to describe what hormonal mess is going on at the moment. But I will be more than satisfied when it leaves me to live a craving free life once more.
Until then… here is my favourite ad of all time.
