Have you ever picked up your phone in front of your children and felt guilty? Have you ever spent time on your laptop, whilst your children have been in the same room? I have, a lot. When I first started to call this writing lark my work, I tried my best to confine my working …

Spring Garden Inspiration

Spring Garden Inspiration

Spring is soon to be upon us and I for one cannot wait.  It’s my favourite time of year, the nights begin to get lighter and the weather (hopefully) starts to improve.  At this time of year our thoughts turn to ‘Spring cleaning’ our garden, saving it from its dishevelled Winter state! I love getting …

Postnatal Depression – Daring to Talk about Mental Health

Postnatal Depression – Daring to Talk about Mental Health

Writing about postnatal depression isn’t easy.  I’m torn between wanting to write about it, not quite being ready and worrying about what people will think if they read it. Depression is a tricky subject.  It shouldn’t be, but it is.  People don’t always like to talk about it, sufferers often feel ashamed to admit it.  …

Making the Most of Life Around Shift Work

Making the Most of Life Around Shift Work

Since Hub’s changed his job two years ago, as a family we’ve had to get used to living life around his shift patterns.  Previously he worked Monday to Friday.  They were long hours and he brought a lot of work home, but it was Monday to Friday nonetheless.  He was always here during the night and our weekends were guaranteed …

Love the Life You Live

Love the Life You Live

It’s human nature to look at a perfect Instagram feed and immediately assume that person’s life is better than your own.  Its part of our make up to compare what we have, to the person who seems to have it all.  It’s estimated that the average person spends one hour and forty minutes browsing their social media pages each …

Hyperemesis Gravidarum – What You Need to Know

Hyperemesis Gravidarum – What You Need to Know

Hyperemesis Gravidarum is the name given to severe vomiting during pregnancy.  So severe in fact,  that it can cause women to become dehydrated and lose weight. I suffered from HG during both of my pregnancies, each time not believing that I would be able to get through it.  It’s hard to admit, but there were also …

How to Create a Work/Life Balance to Suit You

How to Create a Work/Life Balance to Suit You

Having a good work/life balance is essential for you to thrive. All work and no play makes for a very dull existence and all play and no work is just not a sustainable way to live. I wouldn’t go burning the candle at both ends either, that’s a sure fire way to reach burnout at …
