Getting more sleep

Getting More Sleep

I’ve long bemoaned the fact that I don’t get enough sleep. It’s only within the last 4 months that both my children have started sleeping through the night (it’s horrifying this has taken so long) and they are early risers, too: Elfie was up at 5.45am this morning. Heavy sigh.

I don’t do self-pity.
I used to do it like a bloody boss. If I had a sniffle, a slight tummy ache or had slept less than seven hours the night before you would know about it. Even if we weren’t friends I would make sure you knew about it. Because I liked to moan.

Talking Bladders: The Last Female Taboo

One of my favourite people on Twitter is MammyWoo, firstly for her hilarious Tweets but also for her VERY accurate profile: I used to be cool, then I had a baby. Now I wee when I sneeze…
Because it’s true. When you have children so many weird and wonderful (but mostly not so wonderful) things happen to your body and you know what? They don’t get spoken about.

Change in season

Shaking The Autumn Blues

It’s 23rd October and I can safely say that it’s only now I’m starting to get over the shock of Autumn. It seemed to creep up so slowly at first – I wore sandals right up to the bitter (cold) end of summer – but once it arrived: POW! In your face like a ton of bronze-coloured leaves. Pretty, but cold. And soon to be dark.

I found it hard, I always find it hard.
