There are such things as ‘I suck’ days.

Have you ever had an “I suck” day? I have on many occasions. Just recently actually. I felt unorganised, there was so much happening (and it’s only April!), the kids were whingey about one thing or another, I hadn’t been able to exercise, the house felt like a pig-sty and I was just totally over all of it! I ranted and grunted as I moved through the house. My shoulders were hunched. I walked around with a face that would make a priest back off. I was fed up. Continue reading

Out of the sunroof

April is Cesarean Awareness month and I’m lucky to have had two of them. When you’re pregnant, especially for the first time, there is so much pressure to get it right.

I need to quickly scroll through the channels on the weekend in the hope he doesn’t catch a glimpse of the sports that are on. Continue reading
