Last week I wrote this post, explaining the situation I was in with the school taking interest in the contents of my blog. I mentioned that I was pretty sure that another Mother had probably complained about it to the head. Within an hour of publishing the post I was on the school run, and another Mother let me know it was her concerns that had started all this. I respect that she came forward and Read More.
I nearly didn't write this blog post, scared of hurting or upsetting anyone who loves me and reads it. In amongst the rainbow colours of my life, the funny stories, the food, the pictures of my beautiful family, the reds, yellows, greens and pinks, there is grey. That grey is a part of me too and this blog would be a lie if I didn't write about it. On the school run today I am smiley, I am chatty, Read More.
I don't have mental health problems. I was just tired today, overwhelmed, nothing to worry about. I don't have mental health problems. I just feel a little weepy, perhaps I'm due on my period, no need for concern. I don't have mental health problems. The last few days have been tough but everyone has bad days, it's normal. If I just stay home, don't talk to anyone and concentrate on Read More.
We are headed rapidly towards 2013, and I do love the start of each new year. It feels like a blank page, all crisp and fresh and ready to have new stories written upon it. A fresh start and a chance to make some new year's resolutions. On my personal life journey I feel like every year teaches me so much and I'm sure 2013 will be no exception. So to the resolutions, here are mine; - Stop eating Read More.
Regular readers will know that I love Christmas. I love it so much I have considered applying for the role of Mrs Clause, though obviously that would be bigamy (since I'm married to Purpledad) and elves frown on that. Anyway the point is I'm a fan of tinsel, a lover of mince pies, a worshipper of twinkly lights, I love Christmas. However recently I've been wondering, what is it all about? Obviously Read More.
As well as writing my own blog I am an avid reader of blogs too. I love reading blogs, I love hearing people's stories and it makes me feel connected to the greater world around me. However recently I have also realised that if I'm not careful I could get a bad case of "other peoples life envy!" Take for example (and I hope I won't embarrass anyone with a mention) Chris over at Thinly Spread. I Read More.
I was invited on an evening out with a group of mums from the school. The invite said curry and drinks. I think it might be nice to make some social connections within the school community, saving me from the cold shoulder on the school run so I said yes. With just the right amount of alcohol inside me (not too much or I get a little, ahem, honest) I can pull off a convincing normal person who does Read More.
