So. Yesterday was “Time to Talk” Day and while there are millions of thoughts racing through my head I can’t seem to get the words out. So much so that I started this post yesterday and intended to post it then. I’ve been putting off writing this for way too long. But as I sit … More We need to talk.
It’s back. I never wanted to be here again but I guess its inevitable. It always comes back. Sooner or later it catches up. It does it slowly; subtly. It creeps in and takes hold of me.

It’s ok not to be ok. I’m sure you’ve all seen the posts circulating the internet today regarding World Mental Health Day. A day that is not only necessary, but crucial in todays world.

It’s not that I’ve had nothing to write about, quite the opposite actually. I think I’ve been avoiding it, avoiding facing up to whats been … More CBT, easy as 123?
I’ve started to realise one thing about myself. The only way I ever seem to truly be able to move on from something or start to really understand it is to write it all down. It’s not going to be easy I know but I need this, if only to get a break from my … More An Unwanted Guest
One of the first things I searched high and low for when we found out we were going to be Mummies was a baby book. Not that big a deal you may think, just pick your favourite and off you go! Wrong. As a same-sex couple it was impossible to find a baby book that … More The Baby Files – Review
I’m sure some of you saw the picture I shared a few nights ago, for those of you that didn’t, here it is. It’s got me thinking a lot about the world we’ve brought Callie into, and it makes me sad.
