Why Other People Are Recommending My Webinar

I thought you might want to see what other people have been saying about my webinar coming up tomorrow.  Partially because they appear to be a load more eloquent than I am, and also because it gives you an insight from people who have known or interacted with me for a while *** ‘Muddling Along’ […]

Who am I, Who was I, Who will I be?

Who am I, Who was I, Who will I be?

Have you ever wondered what happened to the girl you used to be, or who you will become, or who on earth you have ended up becoming?  I suddenly started wondering about this at the weekend as I watched one of my favourite films ‘Practical Magic’ with Sandra Bullock.  I felt a tinge of sadness, […]

Wow, 3 Months Is a Lot Faster Second Time Around

Wow, 3 Months Is a Lot Faster Second Time Around

Wow, Wibee (little pink/Willow Phoebe) is now 3 months old.  I can now pop her in a bumbo and eat at least half my meal without her needing a cuddle.  We have reached that magical second milestone, where she’s transitioned through the squeaky, alien phase, into the gradually becoming more aware phase, and is now […]

Why Is Asking For Help So Difficult?

Why Is Asking For Help So Difficult?

I’ve just spent two weeks sick, oh my god, since I’ve been a ‘grown up’, I can hardly think of any times that I’ve had to rest and recuperate for so long.  Now once I got my head around it, I’ve really appreciated the experience, but initially it was blinking hard, because I had to […]

Some Pictures To Inspire You To Remember To Ask For Help

Some Pictures To Inspire You To Remember To Ask For Help

I realised something last week, which is that sometimes we actually have to bite the bullet and ask for help.  This might seem obvious for some people, but it’s been quite a new concept for me; so, I’ve spent the last 10 days very sick and finding all sorts of different ways of asking for […]

What Will Cause The Most ‘Pain’ If Not Done By The End Of Today?

To do list

In ‘ye olden days’, i.e. 2 months ago before the arrival of ‘little dimples’, my second child, I used to ask myself what might seem a slightly dark question when sorting out my plan for work/life balance. I would think about being elderly and sitting on my death bed, looking back over my life.  ‘What […]

If We Were All Gorgeous, How Boring Would That Be!

If We Were All Gorgeous, How Boring Would That Be!

It was with great surprise that I realised that deep, deep, deep inside my inner recesses, I had assumed that a world where everyone was beautiful would be great (especially me!), and there was a touch of judgement on people who didn’t ‘make an effort’.  I didn’t know that I thought this until I watched […]

The Ideal Mummy Age – 16, 26, or 36?

The Ideal Mummy Age – 16, 26, or 36?

I realised the other day that I could have become a Mum at either 16, 26 or 36, and ironically the extremes of very young or very old suited me best.

Re-igniting Sexual Desire

Re-igniting Sexual Desire

I read a couple of heart-rending mummy blogs recently, where two Mums were asking for advice about their lack of sex life and wondering how come their partners appeared not to be interested.  They were distressed because society gives off the impression that men only think about sex, so now they are wondering why their […]

Arrival Of Baby No2 – A Very Different Experience

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 […]
