The one thing I miss most since becoming a mother is having time. Time to myself, time to think, time to do nothing. Nothing in this sense includes reading a book, having a hot cup of coffee and, oh the glamour, going to the toilet alone.
After 15 months of virtually no sleep, my friend D and his wife decided to call in the big guns: a sleep trainer had been appointed, and finally, rest returned to the sleep deprived family. I an attempt to be funny, I suggested to the panda-eyed father that now would be a good time to […]
It’s a year ago today. The day I chose to go into hospital to have my baby cut out of me. The day I had the most amazing birth imaginable.
I’ve got a lot on my mind at the moment; stuff I would love to talk about but really can’t. Stuff I’d love to get away from sometimes. So much that it’s driven me to extremes: I have taken up running again.

A swift introduction and a few emails later, and I found myself under the arches of the New Covent Garden Market, […]
Just a quick one to let you know I am still alive. Yay. The babysitter is long gone to Germany (sniff), and although both girls are absolutely darling at the moment, I am sincerely looking forward to September. Lets just hope my brain hasn’t turned into mush until then. Another round of ‘head, shoulders, knees […]
