I’ve been having lessons for a few months now – I think my instructor and I worked out I’ve had 6 lessons in that time though, as we keep having to skip lessons for one reason or another. We’re moving onto manoeuvres now, but to be honest… I hate it. As an anxious person, anything… Read More Learning To Drive | Part 2
Giving birth is rarely a walk in the park. Whether you manage a medication free “natural” birth, get every drug under the sun, plan a c-section or get rushed in as an emergency, labour is hard work, and it hurts. But “they say” that the moment you hold your baby in your arms all that… Read More Birth Trauma Awareness Week
Hi. I’m a Stay At Home Mum. And I’ve got a cold. I don’t just mean I’ve got a bit of a sniffle, or the odd sneeze. I mean full on MUMFLU. X-man has a hint of it too, just enough to have plenty of snot to plaster across his face with the back of… Read More Where’s My Sick Day?

Learning Online with NCC Since I had X, every chance I’ve had I’ve managed to sneak in a bit of learning online.

Why I Study Online When X was little and used to have a sizeable nap in the middle of the day (oh those were the days) I found myself at a loss as to what to do. There were only so many times I could tiptoe around the house and quietly do the washing up… Read More Why I Study Online
I remember being younger and looking up at adults thinking, “Wow, it must be so cool to be a grown up, and to know how things work…”. And then I got to my 20s and looked up at the 30 somethings and thought, “I can’t wait until I’m grown up enough to have a decent… Read More Will I Ever Really Feel Like “A Mum”?
This week’s #bottlefeedingstories comes from Kat over at Candyfloss & Dreams. She had a really lovely Health Visitor who gave her loads of advice, but struggled to find enough support to feed confidently. I’m Kat, I blog at Candyfloss & Dreams (candyflossdreams.net) and I want my blog to inspire others to make the best choices… Read More #bottlefeedingstories with Candyfloss & Dreams
