  • Do you ever read something that someone else has written and just nod along, thinking “Yup. Me too. Oh. My. God. That is me!!”? Well, I have never had so many experiences with thinking this, as I have of lat […]

  • “What does the name matter?”, “Everyone has their issues!”, “There is no such thing as normal”, are just a few of the things I’ve heard from people recently. They are totally right. Everyone has their issues. Life […]

  • ‘I’d rather be someone’s shot of tequila, than someone’s cup f tea’ is a saying I’d heard a few years back, and one I would have said I agreed with. These days I’d be more inclined to say ‘I’d rather just be me’ […]

  • Between working, family and maintaining a home, it’s tiring. It means that we probably don’t go out as often as we would like, and definitely don’t see or talk to the people we care about nearly as often as we wo […]

  • Back in May, I wrote Rainbows and Other Bullshit. I was feeling very low when I wrote this, as things I was having to deal with felt hopeless. I was doubting myself as a Mum, wife, and friend. I hadn’t fallen i […]

  • Well don’t I feel like an especially silly cow today! Why, I hear you ask?

  • It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I have just been so busy with work, doing over time, having to find/arrange yet another house move etc, that I’ve barely had time to think. Thanks to being so busy, I hav […]

  • On Tuesday both of my girls woke up, feeling feverish, with a sore throat and ears. They were off school for a couple of days, and then my youngest got it. I always dread when the kids are unwell, for fear I’ll g […]
