Starting Again.

Starting Again.

After the hardest few years of my life, I want to start putting pen to paper, well fingers to keyboard, and to start blogging again. I used to think I was a little bit humorous, sometimes even modestly tittering at my own musings, but I’m struggling to find that spark again. Life is crazy. Kids, … Continue reading


You see this boy? He’s my world. He and everything about him means everything to me. If he’s under the weather I’m there for him, if he’s up in the night I’m (almost) always there for him, if he wants a cuddle I give him one. I’m a mum now and I have responsibilities. Those … Continue reading

(Not So) Super Mum

The past few weeks I’ve felt like a big failure. I’ve been pretty ill. So ill in fact that I couldn’t even look after my own baby. This, in my world, means I’m a failure. It all started during the Jubilee weekend with what I thought was a little stomach bug. Turns out it was … Continue reading
