Let's all be honest, lack of sleep is rubbish. Half in part to our delightful little babies wanting to be in your arms every minute of every day to begin with and the other half because you must know they are ok at all times which results in staring at them sleeping to watch their… Continue reading Sleep was so overrated anyway ..
Just like that it's 4am I'm aware that contractions have started. I ship myself off to the sofa so my other half can get his last night of sleep (well a few hours). At this point I thought, this isn't too bad. Hahaha what a fool. When my lovely other half trundled into the living… Continue reading 4am is like the new 9am…. right

Im ridculosly bad with surprises, frankly I just like to be organised and have a contingency plan for the contingency plan. Finally I felt like I could walk around on cloud… Continue reading Just when I thought it was easy….

I didn't have a timeline or 5 year plan (frankly I couldn't plan next week so 5 years was asking too much). Relationships came and went from my… Continue reading Let’s start at the very begining (a very good place to start….)
