It’s been a while huh!! Life has been crazy and my poor little space on the internet, neglected. BUT, I’m back! And with more words than ever!! Read More
Here is well, everything!
Some days are cloudy and grey and no matter how hard you try, you can’t get the sun to come out. Read More
Today I am “Going Back to Work Mum” and as I sat on the train at 6.52am this morning, after leaving B to get the mini’s ready for school and daycare drop off, I marvelled at how quickly life changes – how quickly the past 18 months have gone and I wondered for a while if I had done enough.

Writing changed everything for me. Thank you for being here! Read More
Today is my anniversary, and although it’s Motivational Monday and I would usually be here sharing some words of motivation to get the week started, I’d like to take a break from the regularly scheduled programming for this week to take a second (or twenty minutes) to gush about the beautiful man I share my life with.

I used to get nervous when it felt like everything was going my way. Read More
Ugh. Yesterday was one of those days. Read More
There is something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while, but haven’t been able to find the right words because it’s something that upsets me so much. Despite being a self confessed emotional writer, there are some things so emotional, everything gets all clogged up. Read More

I’m feeling pretty useless as a Mum at the moment and I’m not really sure where to go from here. Alex, my 7 year old, is having a hard time. He is kind, sweet, loving, generous, sensitive and unbelievably thoughtful, until he’s not. On the flip side of all of this amazing, he can be… Read More
Sometimes, no matter how much you love each other, the stresses of life, of kids, of broken down cars or leaky ceilings get a little too much and the distance between you seems to grow and grow until you’re at a point where you’re not sure you’re on the same page any more, let alone in the same book. Read More
I spend a fair amount of time home alone with a 1 and a half year old. Sometimes I don’t get the chance to shower until 3pm and sometimes while I’m in there, my thoughts are so profound, they deserve to be shared.
Aaaaaand then, sometimes they’re a list of the perks of a mum bun. Read More
At first it felt kinda weird. The background music, the intense tones, the repetition of cheesy positive affirmations – I was embarrassed when someone walked into the room and I had to explain that I was getting in my daily dose of motivation – but it helped! Read More
“Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” Read More
It doesn’t sound like much, but it means that the little things are starting to feel like little things again. It means I can manage my days in more than minute by minute chunks. It means things are getting better. Read More
“Your self worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.” (I’m pretty sure Beyonce said that. And she is the queen of confidence.) Read More
I have stumbled across a few posts in a few different places lately, all with a similar theme – easy love isn’t real love. I let it go after the first but after the third, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I disagree. Read More
The transition from structureless, easy, fun days, to being told what to do constantly, forced to sit quietly and still for extended periods and attempt things far outside of his comfort zone, didn’t come naturally to my little free spirit. Read More
I was out at a cafe a little over a year and a half ago, and a lady stopped out of the blue to tell me that she thought I had a beautiful smile. I remember it like it was yesterday.
That morning, I had been reluctant to leave the house. Read More
Somewhere along the way, I’ve fallen off the ‘let life happen/everything will work out exactly the way it’s meant to’ wagon. Read More
Everyone behaves based on their life experiences up until that point, what they’ve been taught, what they’ve been through, what they know and something happens when you make the effort to see things from other people’s perspective. Read More
I’m an emotional writer. That means that no matter what I have planned, it’s my feelings that come out when I sit down to write. Read More

I need this printed, on the biggest piece of paper there is, and stuck to my fridge. (And in my bathroom, and above my bedside table, and as I leave the house……) Read More
The list. Read More
Trying to fit here where I don’t has left me feeling broken. In tears too often, wondering what is wrong with me. I come away from encounters feeling drained. Uneasy. Read More
It’s been a while huh. Almost 4 years since I left your city? Even longer since we said goodbye. Read More
Then one day, suddenly, I’ve woken up to find that I’m not just taking one breath at a time anymore, I’m breathing without having to force it. Read More
Today I don’t want to.
My spark is missing. Read More
She is an incredible reminder that we only live once, that carrying around anger and resentment and focussing on other peoples why’s or approval will never bring happiness. Read More
I had another baby and somehow accidentally left the magical period of life where you can eat all the delicious things and never have to think twice about where it’s going to end up. Read More
