The Faces of Depression. #SmileSelfie

We have been known to suffer with Depression. We dance, we sing, we play, we laugh, we live and we work very hard every day to survive. We are depressed. I guess this must also mean we have ‘Mental Health Issues.’ We have become accustomed to the labelling. The stigma. Sometimes in the darkest of […]

Jack be Nimble.

I forgot Wee Willy Winky. It was 7 am and we were leaving the house for school. It was still dark, it was freezing outside, I was holding 3 bags, a toasted cheese sandwich, a water bottle and my house keys. My tights were falling down, my not quite dry hair was clinging to my […]

You Don’t Have to be a Writer.

“You don’t have to be a writer to be a blogger, you just need to have something to say.” I overheard this recently while going about my humdrum life, in my closed minded, protective, humdrum way. A life I have gotten used to living recently. A manageable life where inside remains quiet, letting the outside […]

SuperBoy.

It is not every day your 3 year old son drops his jeans in the middle of a very busy post office, and asks a bewildered and slightly fearful 80 year old man, if he wants to see his ‘little balls.’ And for this, I am grateful. It is every day, at the moment, however, […]

A proposal, and a Bucket full of Hamsters. (Yeah.)

‘Who the hell do you think you are Lexy? What kind of person are you? Tell me!’ I catch my annoying therapist’s eye very deliberately for a very brief, uncomfortable moment in the silence immediately following this onslaught; but instead of answering him, I lean down very slowly and purposely, to unlace my big brown […]

I want, I want, I want… (A Tantruming therapy Meme.)

‘Why is he screaming so bloody loud?’ The Irish one is finally home from work and I feel like hurling myself on to the floor and licking his £12.99 Reebok specials in appreciation. ‘He wants me to jump out of the window like next door’s cat did,’ I howl over the tantrum taking place beneath […]

Marbles. Scattered. Everywhere…

My therapist behaved like a goat today. I am not sure I can be much clearer than that to be honest. It isn’t a metaphor. I was sitting on his plushy three seater purple sofa, my legs curled up underneath me, my phone on silent beside me, the summer rain angrily pounding the window behind […]

Just Say Yes… (Exceptions.)

So apparently, and I only found this out recently, so if anyone asks where you heard this from, you absolutely didn’t hear it from me ok? I will totally deny all knowledge of ever telling you this should it come up in court ok? Can you keep a secret? So apparently if you call an […]

Hickory Dickory STOP!!

I had an argument with my mother last week. This isn’t an oddity, as my mother and I, well, although we do get on famously well when discussing anything important like  ‘handbags, make up, perfume and when the Selfridges sale starts’, we don’t always seem to see eye to eye when it comes to the […]

Your Moose or Mine?

Apparently if you give a Swedish moose an apple it gets drunk. I have never given a Swedish moose an apple firsthand, but I believe this to be true because a Swedish person told me it was true, so it must be. According to this Swedish person, who isn’t called Inga, this happens because the […]
