The thing about post natal depression, it just kicks your arse completely.

If you had told me a year ago that following the happiest and most enjoyed (and most  painful don’t forget most painful!) moment of my life I would suffer with the most awful and foggiest, low and self depreciating feelings I have ever experienced, I would have told you in no uncertain terms to ‘jog […]

The unfinished tale of the desperate…

Flicking through the channels this evening while waiting for ‘Rome in ancient times’ to start on the Discovery channel, (Cough cough, X-factor more like cough cough.) I stumbled across one of my all time favourite childhood films. BIG, Starring Tom Hanks. Im sure you all know the one. Tom Hanks is 13 years old and […]

When i get older, losing my hair…

As I child, I remember having to sit crossed legged on a hard, cold and dusty wooden floor in the school assembly hall singing random songs every Monday morning, enduring an excruciating hour of ‘music class’. Sometimes they even gave us tambourines. The memory still makes me shudder. I had been squidged, like a hippo […]

Once upon a time in the life of a fairytale ….

There lived a princess who loved life. She was vivacious, and ambitious, happy and a little bit chubby. She would often give long ambling speeches to anyone who would listen about how happy she was. She had the perfect relationship, the perfect 2 bedroom flat and just enough money in her bank account. She went […]

The Mummy Club.

At school I was the kind of girl that always, without fail, was picked last for any type of team sports. Hang on; I feel I need to labour this point. I was the kind of girl that got picked last for any kind of team sports even at my own birthday party. If there […]

Random advice i could do without.. thanks.

Yesterday I was visiting a friend in a Posh little village outside of Manchester. I was stood outside Marks and Spencer’s while she nipped in to get some caviar (or something equally as posh). I, on the other hand, am far too scruffy for ‘Marksnsparks’ so was stood outside staring in to my I-phone (as […]

My last holiday review before baby! The Maldives.

My trip to Hakura Huraa before baby… Sitting at work on a gloomy day I jumped in the deep end and booked a holiday to the Maldives on a travel agent website. What? I was miserable and it was raining! (This was the reasoning for spending £3000 I gave to my long suffering boyfriend on […]

The tooth fairy? What a load of guff! The age of ‘non believing’.

I was watching Bed knobs and Broomsticks with my son on Wednesday. Yes I know my son is only five months old, and yes the term ‘watching with’ is probably not entirely true, but I have waited my whole adult life to share my childhood delights with my son OR daughter and I can’t wait […]

I dont have post natal depression.

I don’t have post natal depression. I don’t. I just feel down sometimes. I don’t have post natal depression. I don’t. I just cry sometimes.  I don’t have post natal depression. I don’t. Im just too self involved. I don’t have post natal depression. I don’t. Because how dare I?  How dare I feel down? […]

Moments in time…

There are moments in my life when i suddenly think to myself, i want to remember this exact moment forever.And then promptly forget all about it. Life can be such a rush when you have a baby. life is a rush anyway but since having a baby it has speeded up a few thousand notches. […]
