A little catch up

It feels like it’s been ages since I wrote a post. I guess when you take into account how little time I’ve been blogging, it kind of has been ages. I’ve been on a bit of a rollercoaster in my life lately, so many ups and downs. I’m not even going to try to sugarcoatContinue reading “A little catch up”

To you, Harry.

Today marks 10 years since someone very close to me died. He had barely turned 20 just a couple of weeks before.  I’ve lost a lot of people in my life, far more than someone my age should have, but this one hit me the hardest.  I think it actually gets harder each year, IContinue reading “To you, Harry.”

Focussing on the positives… for once

I met up with an old friend recently. A friend who I first met when we were both living in supported accommodation as teenagers, we’d both had a shit hand dealt to us, and I moved into the flat below her.

I had my daughter just before everything with Covid 19 kicked off. It was a pretty bitter pill to swallow realising how serious this life shattering pandemic really was just as I became a new Mum.  On top of that I had the recent split with my ex to try to navigate, trying to figureContinue reading “Are we starting to get the hang of this…?”

When lockdown started I had barely gotten out of hospital after having a baby. Then, I had major surgery for a burst ulcer when my daughter was 2.5 weeks old. So, as you can imagine, I honestly didn’t even notice lockdown all that much at first. Recovery time for having a baby, plus for majorContinue reading “Just when I thought things were back to normal… ish”

Adapting to co-parenting

Staying friends with your ex partner for the sake of a child. In my experience (and I imagine for many) this is one of the hardest things to do.  Unless you both just miraculously fall out of love with each other but still want to be around each other (ha), there are likely going to be someContinue reading “Adapting to co-parenting”

Allowing myself a little self-appreciation

I find it really hard to write anything self-appreciating. I’ve always struggled with things like this. From a young age I never had much confidence in myself. It took me until my mid 20’s to really gain any self confidence, and it’s been a long journey. Since then I’ve struggled with speaking aloud when IContinue reading “Allowing myself a little self-appreciation”
