In 2010 I fell in love. This new love changed my life in ways I could never imagine. My new love entertained me, showed me new places, saved me money and even stopped me from ever getting lost. In fact without my love this blog may never have been born. My love has revolutionised my life and I appreciate what it's given me. However recently as often happens in relationships I have noticed a negative Read More.
Like many insomniacs, shift workers, and overworked pixies I am often tired. At the moment I am particularly tired because little Wonder Girl has taken to waking at night ready to play or feed. Whichever I prefer. As cute as she is I could live without seeing her at night. Tiredness for me is particularly worrying. I know how important sleep is for my mental health to be, well, healthy. I'm not Read More.
When I was a little girl one of my favourite toys was my fuzzy felt set. I have not bought my children fuzzy felt to play with (it would be for them to play with, honest) because I have not found a set that lives up to my childhood memories. Then I received the Create-a-World set and it took my children's fuzzy felt experience one step further (again seriously their experience not mine ). The set Read More.
Today I went to Blog Camp Uk having been one of the lucky bloggers to obtain a ticket to this fantastic, free event. I was very excited to attend for a number of reasons 1. To meet some of the bloggers who have entertained, supported, and inspired me since I started blogging eight months ago. 2. To learn, be inspired, and improve. 3.To spend a whole day with people who don't glaze over when I Read More.
It has been two months since I left hospital following my admission for post natal depression. Whilst it's brilliant to be back at home with my family, it hasn't been an entirely easy transition. Initially I felt at sea, having become a little institutionalised by the hospital routines. There is also a lot more to do at home with cooking, cleaning and caring for my other children. It took some effort, Read More.
My youngest son Robo Boy has never been particularly fond of sleeping. We co-slept until he was two and then he moved into a room with his big brother Super Kid. This really helped him settle at night and until recently all was well. Unfortunately in the last few months he had started waking up to three times a night and waking us up. Since we also have a baby in the house who needs night time parenting Read More.
I love my extended family. Sometimes though I really don't understand them. I have refrained from talking about my extended family on this blog, despite, at times, really wanting too. The reason for resisting discussion is that I know some of my family read this blog. I also know how easily the written word can be misinterpreted. That, without facial expression and nuance, it is all to easy to take Read More.
