On Being OK

"How's things?" "You alright?" "How you doing?" These are all questions that we ask people at least once on a daily basis. Yet, I always think, how often do we actually want to know the answers. For instance, when I walk in to my local shop and Sheila behind the counter says "hiya, you alright?"... Continue Reading →

On Current Family Life

Little love My little love is now 16 months old. Since my last blog about the family, I have returned to work, become very slightly less anxious and Leo has learnt to sit, crawl and stand. He's grown 11 teeth, had his one year jags and now he walks! He's a total jabber jaws as... Continue Reading →

On My Mind Recently

It has been eight weeks since my Little Love arrived. Boy what an eight weeks it has been. The weeks since he has been here have simultaneously been the longest and quickest weeks of my life.

On Babies (or my lack of)

On Siblings

(From 29th December 2016) I recently had a discussion with husband about what it was like to have siblings. To be honest I had never really thought about it much before because I have never not had a sibling. Husband is an only child but I have a sister and four brothers. Not all from...

On Growing Up

Cummings Well I really don’t know how many times over the past few months, yes months, I have written and re-written this post. Usually when writing a blog post I will have an idea in mind, take out... Continue Reading →
