Keep taking time for yourself until you’re you again – Lalah Delia xx
It’s been a little scary being left alone with my thoughts. I felt myself beginning to spiral right before the cold hit. It’s happened enough times to recognise the feelings – that weight it suddenly feels like I’m carrying around. The utter exhaustion it results in. It’s like standing in the shallows of a… Read More
Instead of spending the day eating cake, getting my nails done and being treated to dinner from my favourite Thai restaurant, I’ve been in bed most of the day with tissues stuffed into my nostrils in an attempt to hold off the dripping so I could get some sleep. Read More
I catch the train to work in the mornings. Then I walk 15 minutes through the city to get to my office. Pre-coffee. Today I wrote down some of the thoughts I have almost daily while on this walk. It’s a wild ride. You’re welcome, in advance. What day is it? Why does it always… Read More

This is not Dee…. She left her site unlocked while away on her business trip, so I thought it would be fun (slightly stalker-ish – but in a cute way) if I left her a little post from the outside of her mind looking back at her. I’m not at all wordy, I’m not terribly… Read More
They say its a virtue, but it is not one I was blessed with!! Read More

There’ll be times in life when you feel ahead, and times in life when you’ll feel behind. Some days will feel like a breeze and some days you’ll be so busy and overwhelmed, you won’t know which way is up. Some days your hair will fall perfectly and your skin will look glowy and… 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’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.

“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
