B is for bump

Today I'm just sat here watching three men washing out the guttering and making the outside of the house look clean again. They are coming back again to do some more work later on but I'm happy things are finally getting sorted out. B is for bump as I'm now nearly 17 weeks pregnant with… Continue reading B is for bump

A is for agenda

A while back I wrote a post about putting less expectations on myself. Not having the lists with the deadlines and beating myself up about the impossible tasks I set myself.

Proud of the little achievements

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.

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

Is being busy now a badge of honour?

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?
