It's here. The bit we didn't get last year, because, rain. These days between Christmas and new year. I used to find them an unbearable waste of time between key nights-out where there was a void filled only by roses chocolates and end of year review shows. Now they are blissful days of deep midwinter, … Continue reading The Midwinter Pause
I'm REALLY lucky. I live in a city that people visit on their holidays. I'm not from here, but I've been here 12 years. When I first moved here, I loved that had everything a city has to offer, but also a compact, cosy feel. You see familiar faces, you are not oppressed by loads … Continue reading #BEDN York my hometown
Well this fits in with today’s theme for #BEDN, and I’m in the middle of roasting a dinner, so rebel blogger strikes again and I’m re blogging it! It’s about why I started, but even just in the last week of BEDN, I’m enjoying it lot more as I’m not over analysing every post. Hope BEDN is going well for all you too!?
So, blogging. Bloggers. “Blog-tastic” is a word my friend and I use when we feel pleased with ourselves or something about our life. It’s a bit smug, and bit sarcastic and a bit pokey. After all, we are just normal women with normal lives, not fabulous yummy-mummies with perfect children and homegrown organic vegetables and a sideline business in interiors/craft/baking.

Yes, blogs have seen me through various stages… planning a holiday, debating a career change, stress and anxiety, going self-employed, starting a business, planning a career break and round the world trip, pregnancy, new motherhood (Thats basically a synopsis of the last 8 years of my life) There’s a blog for everything. There always…

Okay, so this was supposed to be yesterday's post, but also I haven't posted every day - boo hoo, so chuck me out of class. I'm a rebel okay? Find me on the back seat of the bloggy bus smoking fags and doing graffiti with tippex. So, 10 things I hope to do in life: … Continue reading #BEDN 10 Things…
So, people like to touch babies, eh? Recently, a male acquaintance deemed it appropriate to reach in to the pram and stroke my daughter's cheek. I say acquaintance because this is a person I know, but who I don't particularly like or feel comfortable around. I jiggled the pram a bit and made some excuses … Continue reading Hands off my baby please!
I love food me. I'm still breastfeeding so I do have to remind myself that my ridiculous appetite has a legitimate driving force. Lest I do something stupid like try and "diet". Pah! Not for me I'm afraid, but remind me of that in a few months time, when the little one off the boob … Continue reading #BEDN Food Glorious Food
Autumn is all about light for me. Nature seems to have conspired all year - first the light that puts the colour into the leaves by photosynthesis, and then the way the tilting of the earth lends a dreamy quality to the light and it filters through the leaves in all their technicolour splendour. Here … Continue reading Light
I stumbled upon the Blog Every Day in November challenge set by rosalilium.com and it seemed like a good idea to jolt me into actually posting. I have several drafts for posts that are half written, but I feel a bit stunted and want to just put something out there. The list of suggested topics … Continue reading Something I made
I'm in a bit of a career limbo at the moment... I have made the decision to close my therapy business, and will shortly return to teaching a couple of Pilates classes a week. I don't want to get into the ins and outs of SAHM Vs. working mum here (I may cover that in … Continue reading Quick! Look busy – somebody’s coming!
