The Day My Life Changed Forever

I was standing in the disabled women’s toilet. All of a sudden there was a chill, my face turned pale white and goosebumps ran up my forearms. Another colleague tried to turn the doorknob to get in, my heart started racing and my face felt hot, “Sorry I’m in here!” My mind felt like someone had…

11 Reasons Why Mums are Gangster

Since becoming a Mum, I am much more confident in every day life. I don’t feel the pressure of having to please everyone and I am more focused on what I need to do for my family. I have a sense of freedom even though technically I am less free, I am finally able to follow…

Did Someone Say Sleep?

I’m at the end of my rope. I can’t take the night wakings anymore, it’s at least 2 wakings and at most 7 wakings, and an early 7:30am start at work. Sometimes I look at my photos and think, “Damn I look like I have been punched in the face!” Bags galore. I want my brain…
