Traumatic Tears and The Fear

Tired, anxious, scared, protective, overwhelmed. Just some of the words that describe how I’m feeling after last night. The day started off so well- perhaps too well. She was so smiley and chatty in bed in the morning, napped for hours with me, was gurgling and goo-ing on our walk, ate well, the whole shebang. I’d […]

Rainy days

What is going on with the weather at the moment? It’s gone from blazing 34 degree heat, to dark, damp and downright miserable. I’m not going to lie, now that I have a baby, I prefer this weather to the scorching burn-worthy fire pit that was last week, but it’s bloody confusing given that it’s […]

A jab to the heart…

Country Fair in the City

A country girl through and through, I’m not ashamed to admit that when I read that the common by our house was to be transformed into a country fairground this June, my levels of excitement not only reached, but went well above those deemed cool or generally acceptable for a 23 year old. My day […]

The Twilight Zone

I’m at a funny age. My 23rd birthday this year wasn’t a big thing- partly because I was 9 months pregnant and had just had the most amazing baby shower that I felt couldn’t be topped, but mostly because it’s sort of a ‘non-age’. It’s lost the excitement of turning 20 and 21, and it’s […]
