Co-Parenting; Nobody said it would be easy…

It was off the back of watching a feature on This Morning today that made me write this post, a story involving two ‘celebrities’ and one baby which had got ugly. Uglier than ugly – it’s a bit of a mess. Though it got me thinking about my journey of learning to co-parent, in obviously a much less dramatic way than them but it has been a journey all the same. Co-parenting is hard, I have been a single parent for a little under 2 years now. Back when the girls dad and I decided to split I was pre-warned…

Goodbye January

Potentially the longest January to date has now come to an end! People go one of two ways in January; they either embrace it, love it, go for dry Jan, throw themselves into resolutions or they do January blues. The short, cold, dark days get the best of them and they can’t wait for January to end. I am a mix of the two, this January for me has been good.

A love a new years resolution I know some dismiss them but I just am a geek who enjoys setting goals and making plans all year round – new year seems as good a time as any.

Recently you’ll have seen your social media feeds filled with the tree of life images it made me want to  jump down from my fence and write this post. The tree of life images essentially show breast feeding muma’s doing their thing in an arty way – they look cool, they do I like them and this isn’t directed at those images personally, it is just seeing them that sparked my need to write. I am all for breast feeding out and proud. Never…

Removing Negativity

So in my last week in pictures I mentioned I was having a little bit of a shitty time and to be honest looking back on it from a much happier place – it was my own fault. I was feeling like crap because for too long I’ve been letting negative people stay in my life who then have a negative impact on me. I try to always see the good in people and remain positive but there does come a point when the light comes on and you see that they do nothing but bring you down and deflate…
