Still Here But A Little Bit Tired

Marvellous mum and marvellous Kaisa At the moment I feel like my life is revolving around PND. I usually find it easy and enjoyable to sit at my computer daily and shape some thoughts into a blog post, but I’m totally coming up blank. All I can think about is PND… PND… I’m starting to bore myself and am getting worried about boring other people. It’s a pretty exhausting thing to be dealing with. I’m experimenting with the medication I’m…

I Gone Done A VLOG!

January 25, 2013

And far from it being the smooth and easy option… all I can say is iMovie, you bastard. What should one edit video on? Something easier, I hope. Anyway, here it is. This is me. And a bit of Hux.…

  – Watched Celebrity Big Brother. Had arguments with my husband about watching Celebrity Big Brother. – Washing up… Lots of washing up.

Be Right Back

January 11, 2013

The Harolds are on the move! Literally… we are moving house tomorrow. Nothing drastic, just 200m up the hill in our lovely little town to slightly smaller digs that will save us a considerable amount of money each month. I’m really excited to get in there, I have big plans to turn the kitchen into a pink gingham paradise (seriously, it’ll look like Cath Kidston threw up in there) and I’m even more excited not to spend the forecast snowy…

PND: An Update

January 7, 2013
Stop Fucking Attention Seeking

I have never been scared of going to the doctors or hospital. I spent my early twenties with endometriosis and have suffered many an uncomfortable exam, so I’ve always been pretty pragmatic about getting naked in the name of medicine. When in labour with Hux at my first exam/sweep I remember turning wide eyed to Will saying “did you see that? She put her WHOLE HAND in. WOAH”. In general I find the world of modern medicine fascinating rather than…

MTT: Spinach, Mushrooms and Egg

Mushrooms, Spinach and Egg on toast

ย  After my last Stuff On Toast post my mum sent me a text messageย saying “OMG Alice, I’ve been making scrambled eggs wrong for the last 40 years!” (though she probably didn’t say OMG as she is part of the generation that thinks LOL means Lots Of Love) So I have decided to dedicate this recipe to her, as she originally taught me about the brilliant combination of spinach, mushrooms and an egg. She uses those ingredients in a lovely…

Me, pre-babies by Ted Williams   The last couple of days have been great for me. I’ve thought about a lot of things: where I am now, where I want to be in the future, what makes me happy and how I can be the best person I can be for my family. My end of year meltdown has come at a brilliant time; I’m a huge fan of clean slates and new starts so 2013 is going to be…
