Story time: The Last Big Adventure.

Last month I entered the Dorset Fiction Award, I wasn’t short listed, but I am really proud that I have actually finished a story (even if it is only 1,000 words). I don’t plan to enter it into any more competitions. I have a theory that, if I write a new story for every short…

Dear impressive squash’s from Aldi.

So, since October 31st I have felt a little brooding. I didn’t ‘take part’ in Halloween this year. I have recently started exploring the world of twitter, and social media in general; before this past month I hadn’t really stepped into social media to such an extent, so its been a little overwhelming.

Traveling through Spain with a baby.

We set off very early Sunday morning, I was still trying very hard to drink my coffee. It was imperative we set off early in the morning; the traffic around the Bordeaux ring road is always busy at a weekend as people like to travel either north or south for the weekend (or for the…

“The fair is here, do you want to go?”  No. Not really is my reply to that, but you know every year I force myself up to that damn fair. And why? Well to be honest I’ve been asking that a lot lately. The reason I go to the fair is because it’s something I…

Boobies

Today I feel like my boobs reach my feet. I have breastfed all night long, after pumping, because I was tricked into thinking we had managed to get her to bed earlier. Last night we all got next to no sleep, thanks to the wind left behind by Ophelia. We were awake at least every…

What is normal for a miscarriage? part 3.

I was going to post about my holiday but it was the wave of light tonight and that is far more important. This week has been baby loss awareness week. I am going to discuss miscarriage, so if you are in a vulnerable place yourself or are pregnant and do not want to read about…

Leapy leaping leap

I think that my daughter is having one of these so called leaps. I only heard about these the other day. I have been woken up constantly through the night for the sixth time this week. I know, I know I really cant complain at all as up until recently she has slept through the…

A change

So I’ve decided to changed the format of my blog, from now on ill be doing more updates but shorter to try to encourage myself to write more often. I will write about my trip to Portugal under travel as it was interesting and I do travel often so it would be good to keep…
