Back in April I wrote about my experiences of miscarriage. You can read about it here. In the post I talk about how my three miscarriages lead me to be extremely anxious during my pregnancy with the twins. The constant checking for blood every time I went to the toilet, the racing your heart would get … Continue reading Living with The Fear
This time last year we were getting ready to travel to Glasgow, where we stayed for three weeks before I gave birth to the twins. I had ordered my change bag, the Babymel Millie in navy and was rather excited about using it. I had gone for navy as I had wanted it to match with most … Continue reading My Change Bag
If you have children you know how quickly time gets swalled up. Our house seems to function on an almost Groundhog Day like routine: 7.20am Alarm goes off 7.35am get out of bed. Wake Finlay.

Father's Day is upon us and as I sat and thought about it last week I realised I have three dads to buy gifts for (my own, my husband's and my children's). Three men in my life who all play the role of a father and each of them does it so differently. My own … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day.
I enjoyed high school (well latterly!) I had a good group of friends who accepted me for me. I didn't need to try and be someone else or hide behind a mask, they loved me just the way I was, including my crazy tendancies. As much as I enjoyed high school I was glad to … Continue reading Am I Back in High School?!
I guess I knew it was happening before I even went to the hospital for a scan. I knew I had lost our baby and the chance of becoming a parent was slipping away from me. October 2012, the month I suffered our first miscarriage. I was attending a teaching in-set course. It was lunch … Continue reading My Story of MisCourage
This time last year David and I were wandering round New York City in awe and taking in all it had to offer. My best friend married an American and lives in New Jersey with an impressive Manhattan skyline view.
