New Term = FREEDOM!

New Term = FREEDOM!

September is most definitely my favourite time of year. I love the holidays and I love the sunshine, but even more, I love a fresh start, a new term, and a quiet house! My social media feeds are full of a mix of weeping mothers, missing their kids, having spent the holidays together, creating memories. … Continue reading

Nearly 36 (vomits into hands)

Nearly 36 (vomits into hands)

When the fuck did I get so old? My body has felt so knackered since the beginning of the year.

Guess Who’s 2?

DKD is 2 years old! Blimey we have a 2 year old. An official toddler. A little man that runs around being all little manly. Our son, our world, our absolute everything, what did we spend our money on before you? He’s amazing (obviously biased). He’s like this mad, bubbly, nutty little dude that has … Continue reading

Growing Up Isn’t Easy

Being an adult sometimes sucks. I wish I could spend an entire week going about my normal life but with all the mannerisms of a toddler. I wish I could walk away from everyone who bores me, or just put my hand over their mouth to shush them. I wish I could hide under the … Continue reading

Events of late have made me feel old. Little triggers have made me step back and look at myself and wonder how quickly time has crept up on me and taken over. I’m 32. Not ancient in my eyes but pre-historic in the eyes of the children I teach. I’ve compiled 10 reasons why I … Continue reading
