Music, I missed you…

When I was in my teens, you couldn’t get me out of music shops! I’d be forever in there, browsing through the racks of CDs, scanning the album art, checking out the tracks from my favourite artists – and those on offer that week. Yup, HMV in the UK (the …

The Spiral of Grief

I was in two minds about whether to write this post or not, because grief feels like such a difficult, emotive topic to write about. On the one hand, I definitely don’t want to sweep it all up into some nicely-tied bow within a few cliched paragraphs, promising that ‘time …

It’s not always easy to admit, but there are many days where a wave of anxiety will wash over me. I don’t know why, not sure how, and can’t put my finger on what, but the feeling is there. And real. And dictates my whole day. As today is World …

Coffee – my nighttime ninja assassin

I’m not sure that the weather’s like where you are, but today seems a surprisingly lovely spring day in Liverpool. This is good news because a) no-one likes waking up to rain and b) I made the huge mistake of having 2 afternoon cups of coffee yesterday, so have been …

IVF – It’s Very Frustrating

So, I’ve wanted to share about my IVF experience for a while now, but truth be told I’m finding it really hard to know where to start and end the conversation. Because it feels like it’s either a case of ratling through the details really quickly, (which essentially won’t amount …

Strawberries: today’s arch nemesis

We had a lovely lunch today. Tuna sandwiches and strawberries. And wowwee, did he love those strawberries! He squished & squelched them joyously in his hands, as he munched them down, all the yummy juice smeared deliciously over his lips & fingers Neither of us much enjoyed the strawberries when …
