Family Holiday Bucket List

As I start this post, I need you to start playing a teeny tiny violin for me whilst I shed a tear into my laptop. Don't worry, this isn't another post about my mental health.

My Secret Battle

I have wanted to write about this for a little while. Until now I have never been brave enough (or silly enough?) to actually do it. I'm considerably private and the thought of being judged or talked about kills me. I wouldn't want to appear weak and vulnerable and although it shouldn't, any sympathy makes me… Continue reading My Secret Battle

How I learnt the hard way NOT to delay a smear test

It was just after I turned 25 when I received the letter asking me to book my first smear test. At that time I was expecting Ava and understood you couldn't have one while pregnant so I tossed the letter away and didn't think much more of it. I got a second letter shortly after… Continue reading How I learnt the hard way NOT to delay a smear test
