None of my business

July 18, 2013

  The other day I had one of those shitty parenting moments. In public. With witnesses.   I’m so tired at the moment. The insomnia is back with a vengeance and I’m only managing a few broken hours of sleep a night, which is never a good starting point. It’s the middle of winter so […]

May they always have the right to choose.

June 26, 2013

  I will never forget that doctor’s appointment. I went in complaining of feeling generally crap for a few weeks with some nausea and feeling lightheaded. I thought I had a virus and wanted a couple of days off work to sleep it off. The GP offered a pregnancy test which I laughed at. I […]
