The Lockdown: Day 0

Back to the office What started like any other Monday certainly didn't end like one. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was on edge. We'd all spent time stewing over the weekend and nobody wanted to be in the office. Those of us who had been allowed to work from home only 2 days prior, were … Continue reading The Lockdown: Day 0

Coronavirus Concerns

What is Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what does it mean for me? By now we are all well aware of what Coronavirus is. At least the basics and the danger, if not the specific details. We are all aware of the lock-downs in place in various countries, and the pandemic status applied by the WHO. But … Continue reading Coronavirus Concerns

And now for something completely the same…

Well, it's been a while since my last post. Life gets in the way of everything I guess. I've had a lot on I suppose, which hopefully I will be able to write about in a few other posts assuming I have the time. At the moment I feel the main thing I need to … Continue reading And now for something completely the same…

It Scares Me

It scares me how angry I get over nothing. It scares me how I see all the negatives long before even one positive. It scares me that one day you might realise that I'm really not that good a person. It scares me that one day you might realise that I'm really not that good … Continue reading It Scares Me

Thinking about my thinking

You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warmPenny Reid - Beard in Mind I don't think of myself as a martyr, or a hero, or any kind of positive kind of good samaritan esque thing.

Daffodils, Butterfly Flowers, and a Bulb of Garlic

Being the adult-y sort of adult that I am I thought I would try my hand at a little bit of horticulture. I have had a few pot plants before and they did alright, and I've managed to kill an orchid so I'm fairly sure I know what I am doing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/roberteves92/32772907177/in/dateposted/ One of many … Continue reading Daffodils, Butterfly Flowers, and a Bulb of Garlic

Lentil at 1 Month

Well I think it's safe to say that having a baby really does change everything, and yet some things dont seem to change at all. For example, my sleep patterns from the month before Lentil was born give me just under 7 hours of sleep every night on average: But in the month immediately after … Continue reading Lentil at 1 Month

Pregnancy Jitters Pt 2

Well, after our scare the other day ( Pregnant Jitters ) Buttercup was not induced as the ward was full and actually closed to new arrivals / inductions. As Lentils movements were back to normal, and the midwives and doctors were happy with everything, we were actually discharged, and we were told that Buttercup would … Continue reading Pregnancy Jitters Pt 2

Pregnancy Jitters

Today began, and continued, as a normal Friday would. We woke up, we had breakfast and coffee, got dressed went to work. Things were going pretty well up to a certain point. I had just taken my Nth call of the day, chatting with a nice lady about a policy she had recently purchased, explained … Continue reading Pregnancy Jitters

Life Insurance

With Lentil due to be born any day, and after lengthy discussions, we decided life insurance might be a good idea. What started out as a good idea has rapidly become a major headache. It turns out that life insurance comparison quotes are nothing like that of car insurance. With cars you simple head over … Continue reading Life Insurance
