Letting Go…

I’ve had a busy past few months. We’ve moved to a new house, we’ve had visitors almost constantly since January and my husband has started to travel a lot for work. And through all this are my three kids. Amazing and resilient but also all toddlers (3, 1, 1) who are, well, exhausting and a constant…

Am I Jealous of You?

As I sit here writing this, it’s after 10 on a weeknight. My hair is a mess, I’m wearing the most unflattering pair of mom jeans and I’m pretty sure I’m on my 4th glass of wine. Not that the wine part is a bad thing but I’ve realised that, having just turned 37, this…

Mummy & Mimmy: One couple’s story of making a baby – the gay way.

I always wanted to be a mum. I knew that from very early on and I imagined that some day I would have that chance. Being gay didn’t affect that but it did make it a ‘thing’ which needed consideration, research, planning and, of course, money. Fortunately my partner (and now wife, Stacey) wanted the…

Are we the loneliest generation of mums?

  As I read through the headline splashed across some of the newspapers this week – “A shocking 92 percent of mums feel lonely” –I can’t help but feel the need to say, “well duh!” I guess I just find it hard to believe that with all the websites, blog posts, vloggers, Instagram dailies etc….
