Merry month of Christmas!

I am just a bit excited about Christmas this year. I always love it: the cosiness, the twinkly lights, the good food, the family time – but this year is a whole new level. There is nothing like the innocent joy of a 2 and a half year old discov...

Ok, I’m ready to not be pregnant now. At almost 35 weeks, I am totally over it – achy in every way, leaky in (almost) every way, exhausted at all times of the day, consistently anxious that I’ve not prepared enough, and just excited to meet my little girl. I want to st...

We need to get ‘the fear’. Life has been very cushy for the last six years, and it’s easy to stay in a place (physically and mentally) where life isn’t very challenging. 

But is it a false economy?

Since moving to the Middle East, I have been so fortunate to gain a caree...

As much as I like to think I’m a rebel, lately I’m actually a bit of a people pleaser. A rubbish one as it turns out, but one nonetheless. The growing self-doubt, isolation, and loss of self that seems to have come along since getting married, moving to the Middle East...

I thought I was good at making friends. Even as an awkward, overweight child and teenager I always had plenty of friends, and really felt like they were true relationships that would stand the test of time – we had history, we grew up with each other, we created life e...

Depression. Oh that word. Oh that diagnosis. It’s a shitter isn’t it? 

With all the mental health/illness talk, all the social media outpourings, all the acts of solidarity, all the rising awareness…it still sucks and it still feels absolutely personal, absolutely uniqu...

Hello, hello! Your absent blogger here, checking in with that semi-annual post I know everyone is desperately waiting for!

Ok, I’ve been rubbish. My son is now 2 and a half years old and my second child is due on the 1stJanuary….so yeah, it’s been a while…again.

Sorry.

Wow, it's been a while huh? I am now the proud parent of a 13 month old - time flies!

After having my son in April last year I was inevitably swept up into the newborn whirlwind, and it really never let up until a few months ago. The one word I always use when people as...

April is here, and so is the final pregnancy stretch!

At 37 weeks, I have just over 2 weeks until my due date...and I am so ready to meet this little guy. 

In the last week or so I have gone from enjoying a pretty breezy pregnancy, to feeling like I am carrying a large b...

So, I'm freaking out.  

No, not about labour, looking after a newborn, being a new parent, or any of that important stuff.

What I am panicking about is so selfish I'm almost too ashamed to write about it...I am worried about me, and, more specifically, my stuff.

As I wind...
