This year's about to get really interesting.
So far in 2015 I have had my first baby, published my first novel, my husband has taken a promotion and we are about to move flats. Apparently that is not enough for me!
This new flat will be a downsize, which we are doing for both logistical... Read more
Even a run didn't help today :(
Alas, I'm in a slump and even a run on the treadmill didn't help tonight. On the plus side I can't remember when I last had a bout of feeling down, certainly not since my baby arrived.
We had a picnic planned with some of my husbands colleagues... Read more
Last week I was increasingly upset by the actions of rude strangers. I found all my thoughts focussed on them and it made me view every person as a potentially negative encounter. So, in order to balance this I have started jotting down the kind... Read more
My book is out! Thank you spark friends.
I am so proud. It has been such a battle, with moving country, gaining the weight, loosing the weight, getting pregnant, gaining a lot more weight! having a beautiful baby girl, (caring a little bit less about weight)
But it is done and it is... Read more
Ups and downs
So it's been a while! Life is rather different with a baby! Am back in the habit of running 4 times a week, and my fitness has improved so much but I sense it's going to take w... Read more
I'm a mummy!
Last week, over a week over due, my beautiful, beautiful little girl arrived. She is super strong - she could life her head as soon as she came out, to the amazement of the midwives, and has been rolling from her front to her back since she was ... Read more
Grrh! Why do I let the cycle start?
Three days of bad eating and I can feel it everywhere. I have the excuses ready before i've even reached for the chocolate - this is the last one, I just need to get it out the house, i need the quick energy burst. It's rubbish! Do i feel energi... Read more
I love my bump
I was so panicked before i got pregnant that I'd hate the weight gain, and to honest there has been a fair bit of that too, but for the majority of the time, I love my bump! I can't even imagine how much I'm going to love what's inside!... Read more
Iím sorry, is this body yours or mine?
So I have now hit the sixth months mark in my first pregnancy. After an extremely sickly start, in which kettle chips and spaghetti hoops were the only things to satiate the nausea, I am now back on track, swimming five times a week and cooking ... Read more
Climbing back up.
Last week I could feel myself sliding, this weekend I crashed. And only the week before we were saying how the pregnancy seemed to have helped leveled me out a bit, I should have known that would tempt fate. It was a culmination of things and no... Read more
More than a brand new day
Today is the first day, ever, since the beginning of our relationship,that I have not gone to work with my husband. It is the first time since I started a holiday job aged 13 in the worldís most beautiful sweetshop, (and we wonder why I have foo... Read more
Not a fan of jet lag!
After 3 weeks in the UK visiting are back in Asia. And I hate jet lag. Last night I didnít get to sleep until 6am and had stupidly booked a morning appointment at the doctors before we went thinking that it help us recover sooner if we had to ge... Read more
Little things I love
Long baths with a good book.
Keeping the hot tap running while I soak in the tub.
Clouds that look like animals then morph into a completely different one.
Curling up under a thick duvet when it's cold outside, even if it's aircon.
Fresh... Read more
Made me smile.
In my father in law's garden in a rose bush. Despite its repeated failure to produce any roses for nearly a decade his reluctance to uproot it is understandable given that it was planted by his late mother. My husband I had decided long before ... Read more
