The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
For me, I started to blog because I have always had a passion to write. And after kids, I kinda lost that part of me a little, and my writing went to the wayside. I started my blog simply to get back into the habit. (and to gain some sanity!)
I never imagined I'd have people I didn't know reading it!
Once, I gained some readership, I still wanted to keep my blog to keep up with my writing (read: free therapy!), but now it just wasn't about me anymore.
My reasons changed a little as to why I keeping up the blog. I found that the things I was writing about, were issues I wasn't alone on. Like, lots of women had days when they felt like Mommy Dearest. My reason to blog now, was to connect with other chica's.
I write about everything related to being a girl/woman/mama...whatever floats your boat. I try to take the stuff we are all going through, and first all, admit it. Because often times, nobody else will. And then I try to find the funny. Because if we don't laugh, we'll cry. Really hard with snot kind of crying, and that is just ugly.
And for the times when I can't find the funny, I shop. For clothes, for shoes, for purses, for the house, for anything. And then I write about that.
And when I'm depressed because I can't afford the things I'm shopping for I watch Reality TV, and then I write about that. I'm up and down and back and forth.
But, at least you'll never feel alone when you're reading my blog. At best, you'll feel WAY more normal than you did going into it.
