For those that do know me, you will know that I haven't been in formal employment since I left my role at Scouts at the end of my maternity leave in September 2017. It was a decision I didn't take lightly, I loved my job (for the most part). I loved creating opportunities for young … Continue reading Working Mum.
At the time of writing this I've taken a break from social media - mainly Instagram and Facebook for about 10 days so far. I'm likely to stay off for about a month which will take me to just before Christmas. A friend of mine Liz took a 'social media detox' just under a year ago, … Continue reading Hush the Noise.
Our little lady was very lucky when we were approached by an Independent Usbourne Books distrubuter, the lovely Anna of Anna's Bookshop. Anna asked if she could gift us a book and then we can honestly review the process. We welcomed the opportunity with open arms - if we can help a mum and her … Continue reading ABC.
This is what my hair looked like about 5 weeks ago. This is a photo of my lighter hair that I longingly stared at for agesssss (let's just ignore my homie Kate absolutely stealing the show as the radiant bride). It's hard to see in this picture but I LOVED this colour and now I'm … Continue reading Colour Correction.
3:05:39 That was the time that I ran my first half marathon in. It was the Great North Run in 2012. I didn't train properly. I was a lot heavier than I am now - to the point of my mum having to sew in panels down the side of my running vest because the … Continue reading Mastering Me
It's well documented (by myself...) that I have always had a bit of a struggle with food. I used to binge eat and had a distorted view of my body. It's got significantly better over the past few year and for the past two months I've been following Weight Watchers. I'll do another blog about … Continue reading Changing Style
So if you've been living in a cave on a remote island you might have missed the news, that just under a week ago, Kylie Jenner gave birth to a baby girl. The rumour mill has been going crazy for months but no confirmation of the pregnancy was ever announced to the public. Now this … Continue reading Keeping Quiet
Falls down. Gets up. Falls down again. Giggles. Gets up. Falls down and it hurts. Gets back up. Cuddles. I watch Daisy and her untailored emotions. Within the space of 5 minutes things are the best they've ever been; then the worst. She isn't discouraged because she fails. She isn't put off doing something because … Continue reading Parallel Play
00s R'n'B. It speaks to me. It is the type of music that I love, my happy place, my 'I can't even call it a guilty pleasure because I don't have any shame about it'. I forgot my date of birth when making a doctors appointment the other day, but I will never forget the … Continue reading 00s R’n’B
It's a funny thing, becoming a mum. I went from being a really active going to CrossFit 3 times a week woman to a very unglamorous, large pregnant lady to a Mum all within 10 months. Within the 10 months that followed I went from having had a paid job since I was 15 to … Continue reading Greener Grass
