Why I hate the term “terrible twos”.

Terrible Twos

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. I remember before I had Grayson I’d say it to friends with children “oh it must be the terrible twos!!!” and I’m sure a lot of you have said it at some point or another. Since Grayson’s become a toddler, I’ve really resent …

Trying to remain positive during a pandemic.

If you follow us over on Instagram then you’ll have seen a post I put up about the fact the UK are now officially in lockdown for a further 3 weeks. I think the majority of us had the same feeling of “3 more weeks of this?!!?! shit” which has …

Living with anxiety

Anxiety header

This is something that fills me with a lot of anxiety (ha) to write about, but if it helps someone who suffers or helps someone understand how living with anxiety feels for a loved one who suffers, then it’ll be worth it. So to begin with I suffer from something …

Dealing with negativity online.

negativity online

Mark and I have both felt affected by comments online recently, not necessarily ‘trolling’ but negative comments that just aren’t needed.

The importance of apologising to your children.

One thing I always try to do, regardless of who it is or the situation, is apologise when I know for a fact that I’m wrong. As humans (or maybe it’s just me), we’re stubborn and don’t like to admit if we’re in the wrong and that’s especially true as …

Stopping the pill and fertility awareness.

I’ve been on the pill for as long as I can remember. I can’t actually remember exactly when I started, but I think I was around 15 (this is a huge guess by the way). So that’s nearly ten years of altering my insides. My relationship with the pill had …

Exercise – it really does help

For a while now, I’ve been very aware that my lifestyle has been less-than-ideal. I work from home – which on it’s own is a massive benefit for me. However, it has some pretty huge implications on lifestyle, namely, I sit on my arse all day, some days I wouldn’t …
