Asking For Help

Today I had the pleasure of listening to a talk from Denise Welch as part of a Wellness Week initiative my office is running. Today’s focus is being kind to your mind and Denise spoke about her struggles with depression and addictions. I’ve always been aware of Denise’s career from the Byker Grove days to … Continue reading

Ever Changing Body

Ever Changing Body

Ah pregnancy, possibly the most amazing and wonderful time of your life, but sadly this is something most women don’t realise until it’s over. It’s hard to keep up with the many changes of my pregnant body and I’ll be the first one to say I really don’t cope well for 9 months. I’m forever … Continue reading

Mummy, where is your willy?

So I totally blame my friend Tina for putting me in this situation. Tina, or rather her daughter Florence, bought Dexter a lovely book titled “There’s a house inside my mummy”, to help explain my ever expanding waistline and why I spend most days with my head down the loo. The book is beautifully written … Continue reading

Me Time

Last night I visited Champneys Henlow Health Resort for an impromptu Spa evening with 2 friends. Both boys were¬†away in Weston-Super-Mare for a few nights and I thought “why not, the cat can survive without me for the evening!” The evening package is called Unwind and dine and you can arrive at the Spa from … Continue reading

The Boy Wonder Turns 3!

To the birthday boy…… Happiest birthday of them all to you, the love of my life. 3 years old and so grown up. You’ve come a long way over the past year. You are no longer my baby, but my little boy, my companion and my friend. Last year I wished more words would come … Continue reading

Giving Two Tits

A post on FB got me thinking this morning about how fickle people can be when it comes to children, and I know I’m guilty of this myself! When Dex was born we were of course inundated with visitors. Visitors eager to hold my little monkey boy and lavish him (and us) with lovely gifts. … Continue reading

Baby K-D v2.0

Well the magic has “happened” and we’re finally expecting a brother or sister for Dexter this Christmas. Following a few unhelpful doctors informing me that we’d most probably not conceive naturally, it actually all happened the way nature intended. But me being me listened to the doctors and for the first few weeks of pregnancy … Continue reading

Radio Silence

I’ve not blogged for a very long time. Life has got in the way and I have found it hard to dedicate time to anything other than sleep in my spare time. I am pleased to say my first year of studying is now completed and I am just waiting for my final piece to … Continue reading

Naughty 40

Today is Lee Kauder’s 40th birthday and I’d like to dedicate this post to him. Lee is my man. He’s caring, patient, trustworthy and loving. He’s an amazing dad and Dex even said he’s “the best dad I’ve got”, so you know, I guess that means a lot. We’re his family and I’m so grateful … Continue reading
