Lockdown 2020 – what a year. Who would have thought this time last year we would all be crossing our fingers to be able to enjoy a reasonable Christmas with a small group of family and/or friends? As I look back on the year and reflect, I do believe that despite everything there have been… Continue reading The healing power of nature
No I am not expecting! But at the end of September after a 14 month long journey my 3 boys finally made it to me in London. September was a busy old month. I signed a lease on a flat in Kent, I chased up the UK passport office on the whereabouts of the twins… Continue reading Becoming a mom again
As a fulltime working single mom to 3 teenagers and depression sufferer I have over the years NOT been ok. AT ALL. At some points I have not even been able to get out of bed – not even for my children who are my world. I have not cared about eating, about getting showered… Continue reading It’s in the little things
Did you start the new year with a list of to do’s? You know the “I will join the gym”, or “I will give up chocolate” or “I will enjoy nature” kind of things we promise ourselves with the best intentions as the calendar opens on January each year. Well this year I didn’t. Instead… Continue reading Back on track … well for today anyway
Well what a start to 2021. We all pretty much wrote 2020 off. I know I did. Although some amazing things happened for me personally. But that’s done.

2021 the year after Covid … or so we hope. I had a crazy mad emotional exhausting amazing 2020. Despite all the knocks that a regular year throws at year, covid added quite a few but I ended the year on a high note – spending the festive season with my 3 incredible sons in… Continue reading It’s a ranting kind of day
There has been so much talk about what we can’t do, where we can’t go, who we can’t see during the past 11 or so weeks that we forget to look for the good in all of this. And despite all the sad news, bad news, deaths, redundancies and more I keep trying to find… Continue reading The things I have enjoyed about lockdown
I keep logging in here and then never quite finishing what I want to write, although I think part of the problem is I am not quite sure what to write either. The world is of course a very strange place at the moment, and I think only nature and wildlife are celebrating in the… Continue reading Covid19, lock down and what it means to me …
January has come and gone and in a few days time we will be halfway through the second month of the year. I have been back in London for less than a month – I hadn’t actually thought of it like that until I started typing as I have been beating myself up about how… Continue reading Putting the puzzle back together
It is springtime in the northern hemisphere. It is also almost the end of day 4 of lock down in the UK in an effort to combat the COVID-19 virus – a concept and new reality we could never have anticipated or imagined a few short weeks ago. Life as we know it is changing… Continue reading What lies ahead?
