Monday Musings – Going Overdue 

So here’s a little secret, I’ve scheduled this post (and the posts for the rest of this week) so I’m writing this post pre-empting that I’ll go overdue. I’m writing it on Saturday morning, lying in bed at 39 weeks plus 4 days… In fact, by the time this post goes live I will still not even be overdue as I’m due on Tuesday… but oh well, you get the...

Monday Musings – Why Ed Deserves a Medal 

Anyone who knows me really well will know I am not an easy person to live with.  I’m a typical Taurean, totally stubborn and stuck in my ways. I also let anything and everything get to me. I worry about things to worry about. I exhaust myself.  It takes a special person to take all of this on and love me despite all this. And the above is me normally....

Monday Musings – Moving House 

As if having a baby wasn’t enough of a big change for us, we are also planning a house move within a month or so of him being born. At the moment we are having our roof replaced but after it’s finished and the baby is here, we will be on the lookout for somewhere new to live.  I have moved house a fair bit so far in my life...

Monday Musings – What We’re Watching this Autumn 

Although Autumn is the worst month statistically for those suffering with depression (Seasonal Affective Disorder especially is commonly worse as the days get shorter and the weather gets colder), I actually quite like it as a season.  I’m not a huge summer fan and the cosy nights in and Christmas shopping online really appeals to me more than heading off to the beach, avoiding wasps and getting sunburnt in places...

Monday Musings – Let’s Talk about Sex 

Something a little different for today’s Monday Musings post but keep reading…  As somebody who is fairly confident with my own sexuality, I know how important it is to be open and honest and not afraid to discuss sex with your partner, and also with your friends.  I lost my virginity fairly young (which scares me a bit now I’m a grown woman with children of my own). I don’t...

Monday Musings – Getting my Pre-Baby Body Back Post-Baby

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me looking back and sharing old photos of myself looking, shall we say, slightly slimmer than I am currently.  Obviously I was never going to be stick thin at nearly 8 months pregnant but with the end of my pregnancy in sight, and this most likely being my last baby, I am really starting to look forward to getting...

Monday Musings – Decluttering Our House

With a new baby on the way and a house move imminent, I’ve been meaning to start sorting out our belongings for a long time. Watching my friend Kirsty’s YouTube video on minimalism last week gave me the push I needed to get started (if you haven’t watched Kirsty’s videos yet, make sure you take a look as they’re totally motivating!).  On my day off on Wednesday I think my...

Monday Musings – 10 Things You Might Not Know about Me

Writing a blog, exposing my deepest, darkest thoughts to the Internet means that readers tend to get to know me fairly well. Still, there are some things that don’t come up in everyday conversation, things that make me who I am. I thought it might be interesting to share ten things about me that you might not already know…  1. I have 8 tattoos and am planning at least 2...

Monday Musings – My Smartphone Obsession 

It may not come as a shock to you, but I’m more than a little obsessed with my iPhone. It’s actually pretty scary how addicted I’ve become. I’m never usually more than 20cm away from my phone, even when I’m at work. I charge it by the bed and check it before I get up and start the day. I can waste hours just skipping from one app to another....
