Pumpkini travels part 1

Just over 6 months ago* I was crowned champion of IF pumpkin smackdown with the story of Pumpkina and her dreams of a pumpkini…my greatest achievement in life to date. A few weeks after that my little pumpkini set off on his travels and has been steadily making his way around the world, putting right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap would be the leap home…..no, no wait, that was the premise of Quantum Leap.

Pumpkini has actually been making his way around the world bringing hope, love and giggles to infertiles everywhere – the ones he visits and the others that have a little smile when they see him in a new part of the world.

So I thought I should do a little 6 month round up of this travels and spread a bit more of his infertile love…hmm that sounded better in my head. Anyway…..

He started off sight seeing in London with me…or more specifically the sights that are on my way to work, starting with Tower Bride:

But Pumpkini was tired of the London weather and wanted some sunshine so I packed him up, and shipped him off packingto see @ivfferescent in Sydney






@ivfferescent welcomed Pumpkini into her home ….and into her heart

He repaid her kindness by supporting her at a colleague’s maternity-leave party…just chilling out by the hummus, keeping an eye on herAmy_buffetBut they had the most fun together when out and about…. this video still makes me giggle everytime.**


After enjoying the sunshine, the next stop for Pumpkini was Germany to see @littlemissicsi and the impressive sightsLittlemissICSI_berlin of Berlin….I also think he might have been out to sample some of that famous Berlin nightlife.


Tune in next time to find out where Pumpkini’s travels took him next!





*I can’t work out if I’m horrified that it was so long ago or that its gone so fast?!

**Pumpkini obviously only encourages safe driving practices!
