Ahhh January, how I hate you, you bastard. Actually January started off ok for me, but then this week has been a shitty one; I’ve been ill in bed and then just felt lower and lower as the week’s gone by. So seriously, thank F**K it’s Friday. I need the weekend, and sleep and time chilling with my girl. I just need good people around me right now, and luckily – I have lots of ’em! This too shall pass,… View Post

Last January I wrote about how lots of people were now rejecting the notion of New Year’s resolutions, and I understood why, but that I do like the idea of a clean state, and setting intentions or goals as we start a new year. I still feel that way really. I wrote last year.. “I love that feeling. That, ‘right, Christmas is over, lets put all this shit away, and sort our lives out’. It feels like really good motivation… View Post

Hello lovely people! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, and you’re all ready to start afresh. Going back to the school runs this week has been reasonably hard, especially as A got really upset again on her first day back and since then too. She even made herself sick she got so worked up. It was awful. Breaks my little heart it does. We’re working on it though, and I’m making sure I spend loads… View Post

So it’s the end of December now. All that preparing and planning for Christmas is over, and it’s almost a new year. The first few weeks of this month were pretty shitty with all the illness we had, turning into an old lady and hurting my neck, and trying to keep up (and failing) with everything Christmas and blog-wise. It kind of felt like I was living a weird sped-up dream life for a few weeks there. But we had… View Post

It’s been a pretty terrible week and I am hugely overwhelmed and anxious! But I’m sure I’ll be alright soon. The list of shitty things feels pretty endless – eye infections, doctors appointments, more illness, no sleep – and plenty more crap that means I’ve had no time to get anything done. Oh well, I’m sure all will be well by Christmas day – even if I can only see my presents through these slits for eyes that I have… View Post

Oh what a week! Since last Friday Ava has been quite poorly and it has been hard and horrible. She’s had a raging fever, been in pain with a head and tummy ache, and was throwing up for days. She’s only eaten a tiny bit since last Friday and now she’s so lethargic and still suffering, and she is very, very grumpy. She’s been off school for a week now which means that my mammoth lists of things to do… View Post
