I've gradually been working my way through the Marvel universe, in timeline order, and I had some thoughts. Join me on route! When they first started coming out, I really enjoyed the Marvel movies. Iron Man and Thor were comedic and a lot of fun. The Avengers was a mega-fuelled action-packed ride which I found… Continue reading My Marvel Reviews – Part 1
Apparently tomorrow is the most common day for people to fail their new year's resolutions - not sure if that's a date thing or a third Thursday of the year thing, but I figure maybe the way around that is to only set your resolutions now... I joke, I wrote this as a draft two… Continue reading Happy 2023!
Things change so rapidly throughout life, and I have always been quite open to it. I lived in five houses before I was 18, and then I went to uni and lived in eight different homes before moving in with my husband at 25. After a year and half of being married we moved to… Continue reading Changing Reality
Opinion – Harry & Meghan
I was and always have been a big fan of Prince Harry. When Meghan Markle came on the scene I was happy for both of them - it always seemed like such a genuine love, and a really good match. I was quick to watch the Oprah interview with the pair, and also really liked… Continue reading Opinion – Harry & Meghan

It turns out, they have… Continue reading Top 5 Movies!
The sudden, unexpected weaning
My mum sent me an article about a woman who's son suddenly weaned at 18 months. The woman shared the physical and emotional pain she went through as her son stopped breastfeeding and only drank from a bottle and ate solids. I had also recently heard a lot about post-weaning depression and the hormonal changes… Continue reading The sudden, unexpected weaning
Absence, presence, chaos & order.
It’s been… a while, to say the least, since I last posted. And the reason is the title of this post! Maisie is a handful, in the very best way. She’s curious, playful, and loving. And that requires most of my attention, most of the time. That means that, for a while, I don’t have… Continue reading Absence, presence, chaos & order.
Flying with a Newborn
I had read that travelling with a baby has airlines treating you like royalty and that’s not far off true! Checking in, we didn’t have to line up - just got ushered to the front of the line for family check in. At security there was only a handful of people in line, but I’m… Continue reading Flying with a Newborn
