Life Could Get Interesting

Jan 27

I’ve spent years fighting off depression after two bouts of post-natal depression, but the last couple of years have been especially difficult. Friday last week I realised that I couldn’t go on like this, it was affecting my work and my friendships and I needed to do something. Today I went to the doctors. He’s given me a low dose of citalopram to...

A Blank Next Chapter

Jan 15

Daughter and I were talking in the car today about her plans for the future, she mentioned it feels like a blank page that she is going to draw on (that’s the artist in her).¬†In a way I get a blank page, well it’s a whole new chapter, starting September 2015 when my youngest¬†starts university. It is uplifting (and a little scary) to consider what I am...

Obligatory Last Day of the Year Post

Dec 31

So, for many years this day has been pretty crap for me, I’m usually alone New Years’ Eve as since 1995 have been caring for at least one child. Hearing everyone having fun whilst alone and trying to get to sleep despite to incessant banging and fizzing of fireworks. The last couple haven’t been too bad, I realised if I planned ahead with things to...

30 Minutes Read

Dec 26

I love to write, I love to read – to write I believe you need to read. I’ve realised over the last months that I am failing to read due to time, lethargy … all kinds of excuses … and I miss reading. So I am going to create a habit. From tonight (no I’m not waiting for New Year, why would I do that when there are so many books to read) I...
