Dating Is Hard – Moving Is Harder

Moving is hard. Moving an entire family including cats is harder. But crating up a home, moving countries, across continents, and to an area I have never actually set foot in is down right scary! Yes the world is our oyster, but only if we can find that slippery little sucker in an ocean of […]

No phone? No problem!

My phone was viciously and anonymously attacked and is now in intensive care. Who knows when I’ll have it back, safe, in one piece – in its loving environment where it belongs? Why did this happen? I don’t know and I suffer the question. Here’s what happened: While at the baby park, a rogue sprinkler […]

How did this happen? While browsing (and attending to some technical difficulties on my site) I realised it’s been WAY too long since I wrote a post.

Happy Hit List

For the first time in who knows how long, I’ve actually read a book. A book that isn’t about babies, nonetheless. Huzzah! Ok, not all true. It’s called ‘Babyproofing Your Marriage’ – a book sorta kinda related to babies, but more about relationships. (I’m trying, ok)

Sleep-Depro Mommy

It was 10am or 12.45…I couldn’t tell the difference. All I know is that I hadn't slept in over half a year...

Being a stay at home mother by choice is all consuming. But the world rejects me for that choice and label me 'A Kept Woman'. The world has no idea...

Goodbye 2015

Preparing for the last day of the year, I can’t help but feel that there are only two major differences between me before and after baby: How I prepare for a night out, and the contents of my hand bag.

I never knew a love like this

No amount of birthing diminishes any of my former loves in any way. No amount of new found new born bonding lessens the people I cared for and held dear before. But becoming a mother did introduce a new love to me, one I never thought possible.
