Photo by Ketut Subiyanto on Pexels.com Losing weight is such a fraught endeavour. I've written extensively about my struggle with this before, in particular; the terrible shame around the hypocrisy of trying to mindfully raise girls who like and accept their whole selves, body heart and soul- when I cannot honestly claim to be one, … Continue reading Thigh Gap Pride: May we all please call BS.
Tunes Tuesday- I Can’t Stand the Rain
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR-3P9zIMhM&t=14s Keeping it real with my holey nightie and messy lounge ❤ It's Tunes Tuesday, and until 4:30 this afternoon I had no idea what I was going to record. I could have let it go. I'm feeling a bit blocked up, had slept 4.5 hours in 36 hours and was pretty tired after night … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- I Can’t Stand the Rain
I came to midwifery much later in life, beginning study at 30 years of age when my eldest was just 1, and graduating 5 years later when my youngest was just shy of 3. It was a gruelling path and I would not have stuck to it through all the trials, tribulations, sacrifice and anxiety … Continue reading Midwife Emerging.
Tunes Tuesday- Always Remember Us This Way
https://youtu.be/Vq0dyiyRqJY Taking on Lady Gaga is pretty terrifying. The woman is insanely talented and this piece is just perfection. I could never perform it as well as she does, the way she does, so I won't try to! Dee and I made a few little changes here and there to better suit our style and … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- Always Remember Us This Way

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQS1gA-xslk If you like bloopers look out for Dee's facial expression at 2:46...It was take 4 and I wasn't doing it again! Well here we are, it's another Tuesday and I haven't blogged about something else since my last #tunestuesday offering, or the one before that (look at me go, experimenting with hashtags). On one … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday and an Update – “Tell Him”- Done Differently.

This is another one of our golden oldies from an era when the Ally McBeal soundtrack played on repeat and both of us would have married Robert Downey Junior (who sings Dee's part in Vonda Shepard's version of this Bob Seger … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday with Dee
Intermittent fasting: 10 weeks to Healthy
My last post about my intermittent fasting "it's not a diet" weight loss journey was 2 months ago. It's fair to say I dropped the ball there! I had been doing mainly 5:2 (5 days fasting with 800 calories-ish, 2 normal days, and on average 14 hours fasting overnight) for 8 weeks, and had lost … Continue reading Intermittent fasting: 10 weeks to Healthy
The loveliest thing happened today…
#midwifelife "How are you going here Mia?" my colleague asked me as we made our way from the building after knock off today. "I just sometimes feel like you don't always enjoy it, like you don't love it." I'm not surprised she thinks this. If she's read any of my blog for a start, that … Continue reading The loveliest thing happened today…
