This is me.

So apparently I have decided to start writing. I’m going to prattle through my daily life, things that rattle in my head, things that make me laugh, cry, scream, things about my boys, living with a zoo keeper, depression, anxiety and all that comes with it.

2017 in Review, It wasn’t all that bad…look!

2017 hasn’t been our best year and we have spent a lot of time over the Christmas period thinking about the hard bits and saying thank goodness it’s almost over. But on the last day of the year I really want to concentrate on the good that happened this year.

What is the right level of emotion?

What is the right level of emotion you should feel? I’ve had two weddings this year within a few months of each other and my emotional response has been completely different and it has left me wondering what is the correct response. So both friends are uni friends, very close friends and they were my... Continue Reading →


Closing one door…

"My mindset could have gone in one of two ways. It could have gone down a really negative route but thankfully I think this week has been a positive one".

It all started when my darling husband developed man flu after getting drowning wet working on some animal enclosure or something zooie outside in the rain all day. He had a high temperature that night but I didn't take much... Continue Reading →


Work is not working anymore. 

So I did it, I tried to go back to work. I felt I needed to at least try. I couldn't make any desicions about what may be next until I had tried to return.

Ok seriously, when are you going to start pooing on the toilet?!

So the last load of washing pretty much summed up where we are with William. I managed to do a load and dry it in one day. Yay me! But while getting it out of the dryer I had that moment of "I think these still smell like poo" "hmmm I think they'll pass." You... Continue Reading →


‘I feel the need to cocoon.’

A random phrase I know but this completely sums up how I feel after my first week back at work.


Make a desicion, oh no wait I can’t!!

I get asked a lot 'so when are you going back to work?' 'Do you want to go back?' 'What are you going to do?'
