Pockets of Sunshine

Here we are 900 years into lockdown (I am in Scotland, where we’re still working on the basis the extremely contagious virus might spread if we all jump on the bus to the office or invite folk round to do the housework) and I thought I’d better write something about things that are going well – a few pockets of sunshine, if you will. Mainly because my last post was kind of a downer. Continue reading “Pockets of Sunshine”

Crash Bang Wallop What A Virus

Well this has been a funny old year hasn’t it. Back in December-January I was feeling cautiously optimistic I was headed back towards some semblance of normality after the weird discombobulation of returning to work after a year off.

Reasons I Am Crying – A Pregnancy Story

Hormones make you pretty crazy when you’re a big fat preggo. In the summer, with a couple of months left to go, I started keeping a list of reasons why I was crying. Some were more legit than others.
