The wee clinic

Since Rex was born, I’ve struggled with, let’s call them ‘toilet issues’. Two hours of trying to push a sizeable human head out of your nether regions will do that, I guess. However, I did, stupidly, think things downstairs would miraculously heal in time. Sadly they…

Mum life: things I’ve learnt in the first year

So I know I’ve been super-crap on the old blog post front recently. Two main reasons, firstly, I don’t usually have much different to say day-to-day so instead tend to bore/Rex spam everyone on Insta stories and secondly, there’s this thing called full-time work, which is…

One size does (not) fit all

Evening all, I’ve been thinking about something all day and so thought I’d share as, as you know, I like to overshare. A good friend of mine (hi Jo!) shared this Facebook post yesterday and my brain has gone into overdrive. Shock. If you haven’t read…

Driving anxiety. Literally.

A little while ago I wrote a blog post about intrusive thoughts and how they are the absolute worst. I suffered really badly with intrusive thoughts when Rex was really little, and while they haven’t completely disappeared, I’m happy to say they’ve become a lot less…

Significant others

I’m supposed to be tidying the house, but the dirty gigantor baby hand prints will still be all over the bath tomorrow, right? I know I’ve talked about going back to work and trying to find the balance of juggling my fucking chaotic life. It’s an…

Dear Rex…

I’ve always wondered why in the fuck parents have birthday parties for babies. I mean, it’s not like they know what’s going on, give a shit or remember, is it? I never thought I’d be someone throwing a fucking great party for my son’s first birthday,…

Half measures

I’m having a bit of a wobble today. I know a lot of working parent’s will identify with the term half measures when it comes to work/life balance. That’s how I feel like I’ve lived my life for the past 10 weeks since returning to work,…

An open love letter to Charlize Theron

Let me start by saying if you haven’t seen the film Tully (which, unless you’re a keeno like me you won’t have because it only came out yesterday), you might wanna hold off/not read this. I’ll try to stay as spoiler-free as possible but want to…

Still here!

Evening all, It’s been a while, huh? Apologies for the radio silence, in the month (gasp) since my last blog post, we’ve moved house and things, as you can imagine, have been all kinds of crazy. I have to admit to feeling like I’ve not really…

How to (not) handle returning to work

I’ve been back at work for two weeks and we are all alive – HURRAH! I say that, but maaaaan, it’s been a fucking bumpy ride. Shocker, huh? 😉 I was beside myself upset on the Sunday night before my first day back at work. And…
