People don’t believe me when I tell them that I suffer with severe anxiety, apparently I don’t seem the ‘type’. But suffer is probably the best term for it. As I write this, it feels like there is a tight band around my head, the more I think about it the tighter it becomes. My … Continue reading Maybe I’m Crazy – Dealing with anxiety, life and motherhood
Let’s face it, none of us really knew what we were letting ourselves in for with this parenthood lark, all of those hypothetical children we were raising, pre actual children, had excellent reasoning skills and the behaviour of little cherubs. The harsh reality of parenting is obviously completely different. We find ourselves doing things we NEVER … Continue reading “Poops win prizes” and other things I never thought I’d say
Before I start this post I would like to make it very clear that I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER BABY! These are the words that I am screaming at my over active hormones lately.

I particularly enjoy buying presents for a child/ren whom I have never met and so … Continue reading It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to
