So my little baby is 9 months old. Like when did this happen? I can't believe that I only have 3 months left on maternity leave and that soon she will be a whole year old. It's seems such a cliche to say that you really should cherish every moment but it's so unbelievably true.… Continue reading 3/4 of a year…..
So firstly I did it. There have been many moments in the build up that my self.douby tried to creep in and ruin it for me but I joined thousands on the start line and plodded through walking and jogging my way through. My time will not break any records and certainly won't impress anyone… Continue reading My 10k and Me…..
I would never bet on a babies sleep. It's like the shittest game of roulette you've ever played. No matter how many times you think you've nailed it - you haven't.

So here begins my woeful tale (do not judge me - we've all been there)..... Teething (I feel like it requires no explanation) is possibly the most gruelling,… Continue reading Almost tears…..
So it's only gone and been the loveliest weekend of the year so far. We were lucky that it happened to fall on my other halves scheduled weekend off. For me Easter had normally been about rugby sevens, eating chocolate for the sake of it and a bank holiday Monday meaning the first Sunday sesh… Continue reading Easter Weekend…..
So April is Cesarean awareness month and lots of posts and affirmations have been batted about on Instagram, Facebook and the likes. So here's my tuppence worth.

Well it will come as no surprise that 90% of the 'stuff' that was crammed into the back of our car was neither mine nor my partner's, but for the smallest member of our family. Thankfully my dad was carting the travel cot for us,as we genuinely wouldn't have had room for it. 4 nights… Continue reading Our Holidays……
