How To Be A Good Mother: I have the answer

I reckon I know ‘How to be a good mother’. Mind you I don’t reckon I get it right all the time. But I do think I know what I did when I don’t get it right. Ironically, I was approached for that Channel 4 program with Sharon Horgan on ‘How to be a good mother’.  I was hesitant initially, […]

Exhaustion Tips – Always start with Physical

I’m pretty much a past master at dealing with exhaustion, having not slept through the night for 5 years.  However, it’s not really as bad as it sounds and only sometimes gets as bad as I described a couple of months ago.  In my situation, it isn’t a case of changing the kids, it’s more about dealing with it, and […]

Arrival Of Baby No2 – A Very Different Experience

Willow Phoebe Rose Pearson arrived on Saturday 13th February at 13.25, at a chubby 9lbs 3oz, at home in our lounge after a very relaxed 7hr labour, lots of chatting and a short dip in the birthing pool.  Hubby and 4yr old son were downstairs during the process, watching films or playing computer games, and popping up to see how […]
