Two years ago today I had an accident at work. I had only been back at work for three weeks after maternity leave. It was a Tuesday afternoon and I tripped over a telephone cable that was under my desk. I cracked my right elbow and fractured my left wrist. My daughter was 11 months… Continue reading Two years ago today
When we get asked "how are you?" Our usual response is "I'm ok, just busy". As if that's what is expected. We seem to say that proudly yet inside we are dying to sit down and relax. I read an article today about the key to productivity is to do nothing. It was a fantastic… Continue reading Is being busy now a badge of honour?
Today would have been my grandads birthday. Bonfire night always used to be fun when I was young as we always had a party to celebrate. I was incredibly close to my grandad.

It's been a while since I've been able to say I've had a relaxing weekend. I think it started well as my other half didn't work Friday so Ruby has had there whole days with her Daddy who she completely adores. She walked beautifully without a tantrum when we went shopping, played with her cousins,… Continue reading What a weekend!
Monday was a huge day for personal reasons. I could finally put a chapter in my life that I didn't really like away. The after affect will most likely run into the next chapter and the next but the baggage will be gone. Cryptic I know. It was a huge deal to me, I litterally… Continue reading Time to get real
