Yep, I’m fine. Thanks for asking.


I’ve drafted this post a number of times and after a couple of paragraphs I have sat back and wondered where in all the words I lost my point. So I’m going for third time lucky and heading directly to the aforementioned point – I feel like people have forgotten I’ve just had a baby far quicker because it’s my second child. I thought it was just me being a bit overly sensitive but I’ve seen comments on Instagram and

Why I’ll always be little jealous of pregnant women


A very good friend of mine told me recently that’s she’s expecting a baby later this year. I am, of course, incredibly happy for her and her other half. However, as she told me all the details I realised something – I was a little bit jealous! To be clear up front, I’m not jealous because I actually want to be pregnant again. Not only is my body just weeks into its recovery from growing Little Z, but I have

Feeling lucky


I was sat in bed the other night feeding Little Z before I put her down for her sleep. As I was reading my book, I suddenly felt incredibly lucky. Not I’ve-just-won-£30k-on-a-radio-quiz-show lucky but a more humble Be-Grateful-For-What-You’ve-Got lucky. The reason is because of the book I was reading. I recently purchased ‘Parenting the Sh*t out of Life‘ by Mother and Papa Pukka. In one of the early chapters they both talk about their experiences with miscarriage and I found

30 Days Blogging – Day 15: The celeb I’d like to spend 15 minutes with is…

So this one had me stumped. I sat and pondered over it for ages and ages. There are lots of celebrities that I find interesting and if I happened to ‘bump into them’ in soft play or something then it would be great to have a chat. Nor do Sam and I go in for those ‘Freebie Lists‘ of ‘Friends’ fame so no motivation there! After much reflection, I decided there wasn’t a single celebrity personality that I would really

Is it true – am I actually a Mum?

Being a Mum is one of the most awesome parts of my life. I am immensely proud that I get to be my daughter’s mother. It’s a role that makes me happy every single day, although to say it makes me happy every single minute of every single day would certainly be a LIE! But I look forward to seeing H every morning; I can’t wait to see her at the end of every work day. She is without a

One year without Mum

It’s been a year now since my Mum died. I debated whether I wanted to write this post since this isn’t a topic I have really written about before; But since this blog is more for me than for the few that read it, I felt I had reached a point where I did wantto write something. After a year I don’t find the tears coming so regularly but when I think about her, that tremendous ache and pressure in

Back to blogging

I haven’t blogged in almost 4 months, the longest I have ever not written anything since I started blogging. This summer has been a really challenging, stressful and emotional time because my Mum passed away quite unexpectedly on 23 June. The loss of your parents is something that you dread from a young age and the reality of it was devastating. For all of the views and opinions I will put on by blog, this is one topic I have
