#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…
https://youtu.be/-bl5BsCDmDI Well it's Tunes Tuesday, a way for me honour my second favourite creative endeavour, singing, (writing is no. 1) and share what casual creative expression can look like in a suburban setting. It's not flashy, but it's real. If it encourages even one viewer to honour their own neglected creative soul, it will be … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- From Silly to Serene

Classic Phemie. Is it a universal law that all children remember something … Continue reading “You’ve been kind around your mistakes.”
This is me, back in 2010, living in Carcassonne, France, trying to climb my way out of a terrible time in my life. I wanted to write. I wanted love. I wanted to feel whole again. My blog helped me enormously, but it's hard for me to read sometimes. I flicked over to it this … Continue reading Flashback to La Vie in French

The dress fits once more. I reached a milestone today. Finally, I can enjoy wearing this beautiful dress again, after 7 weeks of intermittent fasting and exercise to shed the 10 excess kilos that have crept on over the past 2 years. Today I'm 70.1kg, down from 74.6kg at the start of these concerted efforts. … Continue reading Bittersweet
