Coping when it gets tough.

It’s been a rough few weeks, emotionally more than anything. That’s one thing I seem to always have down, the practical stuff, I’m good at handling life when shit goes down. It’s easy, I can make arrangements and have the best support network for when life gets tipped upside down. It’s one of the first…

Lessons learned.

Some people are just meant to be in your life aren’t they? I mean most of my squad are most definitely lifelong friends and also bizarrely connected to me through many ways, I mean my bestie has grown up with me and no matter how our lives have drifted we always end up back together…

This one’s for P.

It comes to something when an episode of Corrie makes me write a blog post! Bear with me though because it’s really got me thinking and it’s almost brought together too running themes within my blog, grief and parenthood. You see I’ve just watched little Sam visit him mum with Nick in the chapel of…

I don’t need anything.

Someone very special to me celebrated their 50th birthday recently. This guy is more than just a neighbour, the whole family is. They’ve stood by me through the toughest of times, seen me and little P at our worst, celebrated us at our best and welcomed us regardless of either with warm, friendly open arms.…

Maid.

Spoiler alert…I think, I don’t know, as usual I’ve just started writing and I don’t where I’m going with it. I just need to write. I’m watching Maid on Netflix, it’s amazing and has me gripped, it was recommended by a friend and I’ve loved it. It’s just everything I needed to see, it’s women’s…

Breakfast time.

Breakfast? Seriously, I’m writing about breakfast, but hear me out, there’s more to this. You see I bang on about happiness and navigating your way through life to overcome obstacles and finding joy in the little things and well as we’ve sat this morning sipping our smoothies and chewing our bacon, it came to me.…

Having some fun.

Last week I wrote for the first time in awhile, I wrote about being Stuck in a funk and how I was feeling a bit randomly fed up for several reasons. A week on and I’m suddenly feeling much more myself and it’s not taken much at all. I think the main reason is that…

Stuck in a funk.

It’s been a funny year hasn’t it and I’ve not written for a long while. Why? Well because I’ve been very up and down recently and I’m not sure I’ve known how to process things. So here I am, back at my old faithful trying to work out how to get out of the funk…

It’s like a brick.

It’s coming up to 5 years, 5 years, whoa! 5 years since I sat next Poppa M holding his hand for the last time, watching and waiting as the machines turned off wishing and staring for his eyes to open in some kind of defiant miracle. It didn’t happen, we all knew it wasn’t going…

Full English.

“I was brought up white, but I’m brown” last night I went to the theatre for the first time since the pandemic closed them and watched an amazing piece. A piece created by people who I met as a result of networking and collaboration through work, though now I can safely say they are good…
