Why Podcasts are my New Found Love


Whilst driving and in the gym I’m always plugged in, usually to the radio or the never ending playlists on my phone.  I’m not into any specific genre, so I often vary the station I listen to or the playlist I shuffle through.  However, of late I’ve noticed myself skipping tracks and stations.  I’m bored of the endless rattling on the…

Getting Through with Two Under Two


My eldest will be two May which means my time of parenting two under two is coming to an end.  It’s been an epic two years of tears, tantrums, laughs and memories.  Not all of the tears and tantrums were from the kids either!  I often wonder how I’ve gotten through the last two years alive, but I did and…
