Helping Mums Enjoy Being A Mum & Feel Happier, Healthier & Wealthier

Ten Tips On How To Take Care Of Yourself!

I’ve been wondering what to talk about with the gorgeous Danny Smith on his drive time show to Radio Verulam for a couple of days. Should it be my improvement with Fibromyalgia, should it be that the minute the sun comes out we panic about bikini’s or should it be more relationship stuff? But then […]

Meditation for stressed out beginners with little time who can’t Ohm!

Time to stop for a while

  All cudos to those who can ’empty their minds’ or sit in a corner and ‘ohm’ for 30 minutes a day, but I just can’t do it. I’ve tried ‘guided meditations’ too, but all that jingly jangly music irritates me, and I tend to already be swimming in the sea by the time they […]

A ray of hope for all those excuses for being unhealthy, unfit and over-weight

Muffin Top From Above

  Yesterday I asked what I thought was a pretty innocuous question on facebook and twitter ” I’d love all the reasons / excuses why you ended up unhealthy, unfit and overweight?”. I was just looking to finish a list for my book, and expecting a couple of reasons.  I must have had 100 answers by […]

My progress 6 months on from Diagnosis with Fibromyalgia: NEWS!

Progress

  I have NEWS – there have been big changes. Initially it was all rather slow, frustrating and two steps forward and one step back.  My last post was very up and down. However, it looks like it all accumulates into one big sudden improvement, once you have ticked off a large enough percentage of […]

My Progress: Fibromyalgia a couple of months on after diagnosis

Dangers of positive thinking

  I thought you might like to know how I’m doing with the whole fibromyalgia thing? Lots of people have asked how I am, but it’s really difficult to say in 1 sentence, and I feel boring if I describe it in full. I’ve learnt loads more about it and have created a static page […]

It’s not Spring, it’s Winter – Why ‘New Years Resolutions’ are doomed

Our Norwegian forest kittens

Happy New Year 2013 Everyone! It’s January and the crazy dieting and resolution thing is going on everywhere.  I don’t want to be the voice of doom, but your New Years Resolutions are pretty much doomed …. ooh that should be said with an echo doooooomed, doomed! A few of you lucky people will have […]

A Hidden Pain and Silent Fog: Fibromyalgia

Back Pain

  I have some news. It has good bits and not so good bits, but that’s life heh! It explains why I’ve been a little quiet (but you may not have noticed). It explains why I’ve been a bit flakey and unreliable (I hope you haven’t noticed). It’s also about the next 6 months   […]

Doctor’s Receptionists – Arghhh!

Frustration and anger

One thing sure to make me rant is bl**dy doctor’s receptionists and crazy rules about when you can or can’t book appointments. THIS IS WHY MOTHER’s DON’T BOTHER WITH SMEAR TESTS AND SORTING OUT THEIR HEALTH. ‘Please make sure to only discuss one problem at a time with the doctor’ they say.  But Oh no, […]

Exhaustion …. What it feels like

I’m writing this for three reasons.  (Well, I actually started writing it 14 days ago, but have been that exhausted that it has taken this long to finish!). Firstly to share with non mums what it feels like.  I’m sorry to do the whole ‘you can’t understand what its like’ card, but seriously, I reckon […]
