Celebrating the end.

When I got engaged it was an excuse to pop bubbles every two minutes. As wedding planning proceeded we regularly toasted the excitement and build up to the big day, key moments like buying the rings, choosing the dress etc where celebrated with a cheeky glass of fizz. Friends and family also often gave us…

10 year challenge.

So many people have been sharing their 10 year challenge pictures and reflections on the last decade. I didn't really want to jump on the band wagon, I reflect all year round so don't feel the need for the new year new me shizzle. Those that follow my blog know that I'm constantly re-evaluating my…

Ready for it.

My little girl is done, she's done with time off from the child minders, she's done with Christmas and she's done with the holidays. Toddler P and me have had a great break but this time of year, the post Christmas pre-back to work lull its tiresome. It's good having these few days to take…

Hard as nails.

Awhile back something happened, not a big deal at all but something happened and taught me a lesson about a person who I considered a friend. I didn't fall out with the person as such, as in there wasn't an altercation. I just simply made my disappointment in them clear and then proceeded to hold…

Keep up the traditions.

At the start of the festive season or maybe even earlier in fact, I wrote a post about what mine and toddler P's Christmas family traditions will be. I also set out and made myself a promise to enjoy this Christmas and as I stated earlier, even flu didn’t spoil it this year. We've had…

I want to sleep in your bed mummy.

Sometimes I'm far too soft with toddler P and sometimes deep down, I don't really care. The fact is sometimes I decide to choose my battles carefully and I also think, "what harm does it do?" The main one is sleeping in my bed. There's loads of theories that fly around about it and everyone…

Keep on writing.

A colleague messaged me awhile ago and told me how she loved reading my blog and how I should keep on writing. Don't worry I will. It's my outlet, it's my therapy. It helps me channel my thoughts, it helps me process things and it helps me escape a little. Writing a blog has actually…

Life goes on.

I've just written a post about not wanting to be a person that I was and that I should focus on moving forward as who I am now. It's got me thinking a few thing about moving on and the process of it. I think we're all guilty of sometimes living in the past. We…

I don’t want to be that girl.

So last night I went out and celebrated with my bestie. We celebrated Christmas, breaking up from school and the start of my new life. I'd had some good news and very important documents arrive that meant a big step forward towards mine and toddler Ps future. Me and my best guy D Pipes some…
