I were gonna.

“I were gonna” an ever popular phrase of Poppa M, so much so that for years and years me and my mum nicknamed him I were gonna. It was because well he was always going to do a lot of things but these false promises quiet often, never came into fruition. From presents he “were…

Fake stress.

I’m good at this, really good at this. I can blow things out of proportion, make mountains out of mole hills, panic and create a stressful something out of nothing. Fake stress, it’s a beggar isn’t it! I can’t take credit for the term fake stress, a good friend and I have taken it from…

It’s a people’s world.

I've been getting on my soap box a lot lately, a lot and I keep joking with friends that I should climb down and keep a bit more quiet. But why? It contradicts everything I'm about, it contradicts everything I write about. I keep saying Be fierce. So it's about time I started putting my…

Poppa M.

Completely out of the blue this morning, toddler P made my heart melt into a million pieces. I was filled with love for her and her sweet nature but also had that bittersweet feeling of sadness that Pops isn’t here to witness it all.

I always find it funny what inspires me to write, or what moments I choose to do it in, whether it be in the car whilst toddler P naps, in bed at 3am because I need to channel my worries in order to sleep or whilst eating marmite on toast on a Sunday morning, drinking…

You should be proud.

I wrote awhile ago about being amazing and whilst my thoughts on this are still true, there’s more to it. Recently someone told me off for not taking a compliment and accepting that I should be proud of myself for what I’ve done and achieved for me and toddler P. Which I am. However, I’ve…

Remember your worth.

I’m not really writing this blog post for me, this one is a bit different to normal and has actually been inspired by a friend. A friend that’s just having it a bit tough lately and could do with some love and support from her friends. She’s just got me thinking. You see this girl…
