I is for investment

When you think of investment, you think of stock brokers sitting in a busy London office talking a language no one understands. Within my learnings of mindfulness and investment in self, in my opinion, is far more important. Especially now. 34 weeks pregnant with little girl number two and I'm exhausted. My first pregnancy was… Continue reading I is for investment

G is for garden

My garden is my favourite place to be. It's not too big to manage and perfect for a three year old to run around in with room for flowery borders and even a small veg patch. But garden to me is more than a few flowers, it's an escape. It's well known that getting outside… Continue reading G is for garden

D is for days like these

It really should be titled "d is for determined" but recently I've been deflated. Lots going on yet I have felt in a slight fog with it all. Maybe it's pregnancy hormones mixed in with tiredness, but I haven't felt my usual determined self. Work, as much as I love it, has been frustrating. Home… Continue reading D is for days like these

This time last year I was... basically a mess. Struggling to cope with everything life wanted to throw at me to the point of my panic attacks returning. I felt as if I couldn't get myself out at the rut. The medication I was taking made me worse and I didn't know what to do.… Continue reading Proud of the little achievements

New year, new…. nothing

I don't bother with new year resolutions. I don't see the point in new year, new you. I've been thinking about this all day. Why do we feel that a new year means we have to set high expectations onto ourselves when if it's such a big deal then why didn't you start doing it… Continue reading New year, new…. nothing

A month with no writing

Change can often frighten but change can also become good. I wanted a change, a break. Less expectation. In the next year there is going to a lot of changes, so my New Years resolution is a biggy. Stop with the high level of self expectations! Easy written down I know. Next year I want… Continue reading A month with no writing

Two years ago today

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
