This is 39

I turned 39 today. 39. Oh. My. God. Thirty-nine sounds like a blah number, but if you ask me there’s something significant about numbers ending in nine. Nine, 19 and 29 have been pivotal years of my life. I’ve felt as though I was on the cusp of something new and exciting at those ages, […] Read more…

Time to stop apologising for my messy house

I hopped off the scales and gritted […] Read more…

When I leapt into the blogosphere a few short years ago, all I wanted from this blog was a creative outlet and something to keep my brain ticking over […] Read more…

Being three

This little one is challenging me at the moment. From dawn to dusk, everything seems to be an issue for her. There’s not enough milk in her cup. There’s too much milk in her cup. I don’t want the Snow White plate. I want the Jake plate. ‘I will do up my shoes! Mum-mmmmyyyy! I. […] Read more…
