I don't know whether there is any scientific reasoning behind this, but since I've had Nova and definitely now more that she is older and more exploratory, I find that I am more at one with nature. I hate bad bugs, but I hate if they get killed, I almost feel bad for them. Bees… Continue reading At One With Nature
So I was feeling a bit stressed and touched out over the last 4/5 months, well to be fair it's been getting better. I've been speaking to someone about it which has helped a little bit but that's why I started this blog as a retreat from how I was feeling. Anyway, I think some… Continue reading The Forgotten Ones
Before you have children everyone who does have children always says "soak it all up, it goes so quick!" and you really, truly do not believe it until it does. The problem, and yes it is a problem, is that they do so much growing before they hit adulthood, especially within that first year. You… Continue reading Why do they grow up so quick?

I was getting dressed in front of Nova the other day. Something I do almost everyday, because as any parent will know children have to be within close proximity to you at all times! But this time was different. I usually stand in front of the mirror and look at all the bits about my… Continue reading I don’t want her to ever hate herself.
So it was mine and Billys 9 Year anniversary on Saturday, or as he so lovingly describes it 9 Years off a life sentence *eye roll*. So we decided to go out for a meal. I'd had a truly awful week so wasn't much looking forward to it, after being made to feel like a… Continue reading A small break from motherhood.
So I wrote a poem just as the first lockdown started easing in the UK. As you can imagine having a baby during a pandemic wasn't very enjoyable, Nova knew no different, but I did and so did so many other parents. It was extremely isolating. I had obviously imagined something so different during my… Continue reading Take a break magazine.
