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

Okay, now I’m tired.

I’m taking my blog back to where it started with this one – a post which is just a stream of conscious thought rather than something I read and check. There won’t be any photos or links. I just need to brain dump and do it quickly because I’m shattered and I want to go to bed. And feeling tired is the reason I need to write. Because as we approach 5 months into this dual parenting malarkey, I’m now

The daily victory


Yesterday afternoon (a Monday depending on when I post this), I was out in the garden with Little H and Little Z. I glanced at the clock and noticed it was 5:10pm. In my head I silently whooped because I’d made it almost to bedtime. And then I realised I’d done that and that, in fact, everyday I am looking after both the girls together I get that same feeling! Not because I dislike looking after them both, nor because

Pregnancy the second time round


So I’ve reached that point. That point in pregnancy where I’m ready for the baby to come. I’m big, I’m tired, I can’t move around as easily and I’m ready to meet the new addition to our family. But, exactly as last time (and for almost every other woman in the world) I’m just having to wait. I like to think I’m coping better than last time. For starters I do have some memory of what it feels like once

I want to blog…but I keep falling asleep!

A friend has just commented to me how I haven’t updated my blog in a while. Whilst, sure, I have mentioned several times that I want to step back from blogging to schedule and promoting the blog, I didn’t intend to stop. Yet frustratingly after dealing with Little H, getting my job done and then doing all the necessary ‘home tasks’ (cooking, cleaning, exercising etc) I just find myself falling asleep. Probably not a surprise as pregnancy is a damn

The week my brain gave up…

Sitting watching TV yesterday evening, I realised it had been over a week since my last blog post. I’m not one of these people who strives to blog to a schedule but I do try and write something new each week. However, over the last week, during the little free time I’ve had, my brain has struggled to function. Fueled on tea I have had a very productive working week, but that followed by Mummy Duties at home have meant

Decorating: gives so much pleasure but causes so much pain!

I am re-decorating the hall. It is the first room in the house I decorated, purely to get some colour in the house after 5 months of living with magnolia rooms when we moved in. However, after 4 years, it is looking rather tired and the colour is a bit, well not quite gaudy, but it doesn’t match with the ‘pallet’ of the rest of the house. (I sound far more artistic that I actually am there!). However, the hallway

Blog Post 12-04-2011

Oh it’s only Tuesday and I am SO tired.  I had a terrible night last night for various reasons so will confess to struggling this morning.  Although, sometimes in these states work can be a good thing if you get engrossed because it distracts you from the tiredness. Having lunch with two of my old team mates / friends today though so this is keeping me cheery!

Blog Post 04-03-2011

I have spent my entire Friday evening being truely reckless and doing, er, admin. I have done rowing stuff and finances. I didn’t quite get my web reading done, but I’m on call on Sunday. What is great though is I have got the tedious things done – hurrah! But, it has come at a cost because I am shattered. Bed time!

Blog Post 21-02-2011

It’s Monday again! But this week I am not feeling as tired as the last, which is good. I had one of those glorious moments this morning where I woke-up as then discovered I still had 45mins left until the 6am alarm. It would have been nicer if it were 90mins, but I’ll take what I can get! Blackbird was wide awake when we got up this morning and he provided the soundtrack for Sam and I getting ready. It
