In my last post I was frustrated. Now I'm concerned. I've recently had an internal ultrasound scan and it turns out I have ovarian cysts. Apparently this could stop my periods which would explain why I haven't had one since August. Don't get me wrong, I love the NHS and we are so lucky to … Continue reading It just doesn’t get easier…
I've just come back from the weekly chore of food shopping (snore) and witnessed such a lovely thing between two Mums; I just had to write about it.

I'm currently sat on a plane on the way to Turkey for a week's holiday (yay!) having just finished reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.
