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…

I'm the mother of a 3 year old boy, Sebastian, and live in upstate New York with Bash (nickname), while my husband commutes to work in NYC every day. So, we're all always a little frazzled and exhausted and slightly tense. To allay the situation, we've decided to pursue our dream of buying and starting up an organic farm where we can create a cohesive and sustainable life (for us and as many other people as we can reach).
When Sebastian is sleeping or with his friends, I design and build jewelry from recycled materials and plants, and try to run my business, McFlashpants as sustainably as possible (even built a hydrotumbler out of old soda bottles).
We're all recovering New Yorkers who are born-again greenies, g-diaper afficionados, avid composters, rabid recyclers, local food buyers, and wood-stove-house heaters (clean-burning catalytic soapstone of course).
Lucky for me, Sebastian is a sweet natured, helpful child. But he's been suffering lately from a little PTSD (I think)--two years ago, I fell through my porch railing while he was napping (and still breast feeding), and got taken away to the ICU for a month. For two years, he barely registered the loss; but this month (the anniversary month), he has been unusually quick to anger (even for his age), nearly psychotic with clinginess and aversion to change (even something as simple as leaving the house), and fraught with nightmares. I think it's the accident, but then again, it could just be that we've been wintered into a small house together for months.
Like I said, I don't have much to go on but instinct, here.
