Hello 1am

Let's face it. No mum really knows what she's doing.

Being a Mum

Being a Mum. It's a really weird yet totally natural thing. If you are blessed enough to be able to conceive, carry a baby to term and then give birth to a live, healthy baby and you are relatively unscathed,... Continue Reading →

Happy Sad

Do you ever feel like this? Normal and happy and smiling on the outside, but on the inside you need love and a hug and some TLC? Yeah me too. It's quite exhausting actually. There are certain locations where you... Continue Reading →

White feather

Today has been a strange day. Bit of a back story. My life has been turned completely upside down over the past four months. And not in a good way. (I'm not ready to talk about why just yet). Stress... Continue Reading →

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F$&k

*if you're offended by swearing, don't bother reading beyond this line. The other day I finished the book 'The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck'. It was such a breath of fresh air. We aren't special. Our problems aren't... Continue Reading →

The Train Analogy

Too many emotions. Do you ever have the feeling like your emotions are so huge they can't all fit inside your body? Like your body wasn't made big enough to hold everything in? It's an awful feeling. Anger. Despair. Loneliness.... Continue Reading →

Grief

Grief. It's a very strange and personal thing. We can grieve a lot of different things. The loss of a loved one. The loss of a relationship. The loss of something dear. The stages of grief are a very real... Continue Reading →

Just trying to help

Calling all ADHD parents. Have you ever had anyone say things like this to you? Or things like "ADHD is just an excuse for bad behaviour", "ADHD isn't real", "you're taking the easy way out by giving meds". Thankfully thus... Continue Reading →

Sunshine

The older I get the more I'm becoming in tune with energies around me. I'll turn away from negative energies, remove them as much as possible from my life and purposefully surround myself with positive peeps. One of my dearest... Continue Reading →

Let’s Talk

I had a girls night the other night. While sitting at dinner I was chatting with the lovely Erin and we got to talking about birth. She knows I'm a bit of an advocate for birth trauma and in her... Continue Reading →

Morning…..

My day usually begins a little like this.... Woken somewhere between five and six am. I have to be immediately on my game because I can't give my son his ADHD medication until 7am. This means that there is absolutely... Continue Reading →

Woman Power

This is the third and final post on my triathlon. And this one will be about the amazing women who completed the course with me. We said that we would all start each leg together. We would travel at our... Continue Reading →

Role model

This post follows on the back of my previous post about the triathlon. My two oldest boys came along today. At first they didn't really want to. My oldest wanted to stay in bed! But I dragged them along, with... Continue Reading →

I did it!

Twelve months ago my body was broken. I was very overweight, the arches in my feet had collapsed after having four babies, my back was shot and my mind was a mess. I could barely walk. I remember thinking that... Continue Reading →

The cup overflows

My cup overflowed the other day. My 'Mum Mental Load' was so full on that I ended up crying myself to sleep. Let's rewind two weeks. Mr L got tonsillitis. Mr S got croup and then an ear infection. Hubby... Continue Reading →

Exercise

Ok. So I had a major AH-HA moment this week. You know how those annoying healthy people say that if they don't exercise they start to feel angry/sad/frustrated? Well well well. Believe it or not, this week, it happened. I... Continue Reading →
