It is so, so rare that I get an actual child-free day to myself that when the Bank Holiday came around and I found myself child-free, I took full advantage and did something out of the ordinary. This Bank Holiday, my girls were with their father for a change so I decided to head to Liverpool […]

Yay! Spring is here. The clocks have gone forward and the evenings are lighter! And although I didn’t enjoy losing an hour of sleep or the last few days of having to convince B and A that yes it is acceptable to go to bed when it’s light, I am happy that Spring is here […]

How Living With Anxiety Makes Me Stronger

I am a member of what feels like a million Facebook groups and follow lots of blogs. I love reading and interacting with like minded people. Yet, despite the massive amount of reading that I do, it’s been a while since something really resonated and wasn’t about the joys of red lipstick or waiting impatiently for […]
