Hello!

Hi, this is my first ever blog. I plan to share with you my experiences – from life with a toddler to mental health issues, and everything in between. Hopefully in a humorous and honest way! If you like come join me on facebook and twitter too! facebook twitter Advertisements

She’s gone to nursery!

Coco has just started nursery. Today is her first full day after a couple of settling in sessions. She turned 3 this year, so she is now entitled to her free nursery hours. She had never been to a nursery or even any childcare setting so it is all new to her and us. We…

Have I married my dad?

No not my actual father, but have I married a man just like him?  I think I may have.  I have just spent hours cleaning out one of our many unnecessary sheds. The previous owners left a lot of stuff in them, that alongside our own was making it impossible to find anything!  This is…

I’m starting with Adele

So my story is starting with Adele. I’m sat here having just watched the rolling in the deep by Adele video. It always makes me stop. I love it. But it’s the what ifs. It’s the memories it brings. It’s the anger, that will and has faded but I know will never completely leave.

Wake up call

Mimhs is mother and infant mental health service. An awesome and life saving service provided by the NHS. Sadly my appointment came with some bad news, and a huge wake up call.

The tantrums!

I know myself and my daughter have been rather spoiled these past 3 years, with all of our attention on each other! No siblings to distract or fight with or for me to try to manage. With number 2 on the way I was thinking about how I have navigated being a parent to Coco…

Oh yay! Oh sh*t!

I am aware that I’ve been away for a few weeks! Here’s why: It’s happened again.  It could be amazing. It could be heartbreak all over again. After writing Just the one in January, about my recurrent miscarriage experience and now being happy with and only wanting ‘just’ the one child, those 2 lines showed up on…

Should I let her dance?

I’ve always wanted to send my baby to dance lessons. Despite struggling to live in the dancers world myself, it can be a very critical and harsh world to be in, which can be hard if you don’t have a self esteem that is or near enough bullet proof. I always wanted any babies I had to dance,…

Proposing

Since its near the date where we got engaged, I thought I’d do a little post about our slightly unconventional proposal day! We’ve been together for 8.5 years now. I had always been anti-marriage. Great for other people but it wasn’t for me. It took me by surprise when I knew I wanted to marry…

My unexpected valentine 

With today being Valentines Day, and reading many valentines themed posts, it made me think a little about me and my husband, how our relationship grew, and how dating has changed since we were! A friend of mine recently tried to sign up to a well known dating website. One that matches you with compatible partners. In…

The incompetent housewife

The incompetent housewife. That’s me. I don’t know how I’m so bad at this?! I have always been messy. But my house has always been clean. Now it’s a whole different story. Running my own business and looking after a toddler and 2 dogs is messier, no, dirtier than I thought. I just summoned the energy…

I’ve been away to a forgotten place

I’ve been away. I know I have been away from my blog for a little while. That was because  I was oh so poorly, woe is me! Sorry if you missed me. But this isn’t what this post is actually about. I’ve been away to the long forgotten place, that is, the bottom of my wardrobe. There are dust tumbleweeds blowing…
