Contraceptive pill

The Contraceptive Pill & Me

When I was fourteen I was prescribed the contraceptive pill to “help” with my periods. I’d been having periods from the ripe old age of eleven, and after three years of suffering from crippling pain and nights spent spewing my guts into the toilet, I had decided this womanhood malarky wasn’t for me. I hadn’t really considered the contraceptive pill (I was only fourteen and […]

Just My Luck

Firstly…it has snowed! It has actually bloody well snowed! Side note: I love snow, always have and always will, but snow does not love me and therefore I’m usually just trapped inside hoping that I don’t break my neck when the time comes to put my bins out. Yesterday was miserable, so I’m extra glad that it has snowed overnight as it’s almost (just about) […]

I Wanna Be Where The People Are

Today I really wanted to write a post about how irritating it is when children REFUSE to sleep because they think that they are missing out on some great party – but that post would have literally been a rant about how Mini has refused to go to sleep the past few nights. (In fact, as I type this she is upstairs shouting and banging […]

What’s In My (Nappy) Bag?

I seem to be clearing out my bag every two or three days and yet somehow its always full and I’m always left looking like an idiot searching for my purse or bus ticket whilst a queue forms behind me. I cannot fathom how it always gets to full, when I merely carry the essentials! My purse: With fifteen pence in pennies, two five pence […]

Reasons I’m Jealous of My 1yr Old

For some ungodly reason, my little Mini-Me has started whinging when in her pram. She’s only just started walking, and because of this has not yet been set free to ransack the bottom shelves of Asda or Boots, so why she insists that sitting in the pram for longer than 20 minutes is unacceptable, I have no idea! This always tends to happen in the […]

Pros & Cons of Living Alone – THE CONS

**Disclaimer: I obviously don’t technically live alone, however having lived with flatmates, boyfriends and parents I can tell you  that living with Mini is pretty much like living alone (apart from all the great Mini cuddles I get.)** Living alone is great, don’t get me wrong (If you don’t believe me, go and check out my last post about it), but there are nights when […]

Birth: Why Women Forget The Pain

The downright gorgeous Holly Willoughby has recently been quoted saying that she loves giving birth. She said that although birth was painful, it was a different kind of pain and it made her feel more alive that ever before – a feeling she has not gotten from anything else. WHATTT! This b*tch is crazy!I can practically hear you scream at your screens from here, but […]

5 Ways My Kid Is Trying To Get A New Dad

This post was supposed to be about travelling on a train with a one year old, after our 5 hour (almost) train journey to Edinburgh for our holiday last week, but as luck would have it Mini-Me was as good as a child possibly could be with very minimal effort from me. I had nothing funny to write about and absolutely no advice to give. […]

20 Ways My Kid Has Woke Me Up

As an expectant parent one of the most common phrases you will hear is – “Get all your sleep in now, because you won’t get any when the baby comes!” And unfortunately, it is kind of true. (Although, the idea that you can somehow save up sleeping hours is nonsensical and annoying. I will sleep now, not because you told me too Belinda who works […]

26 for 26

Today is my birthday! I probably wrote that with much more enthusiasm than I actually feel. It’s not that I’m worried about getting older or anything like that, I just tend to find other peoples birthday’s much more fun than my own (Anyone else feel like that?), but there will be cake so there’s definitely something to be happy about! Anyway…as it does signify the […]
