Prague: The Charles Bridge

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR.  Hope 2018 is treating you well. Three days in and mine is looking pretty shiny…and challenging for all the right reasons. I overheard my Dad on the phone to his friend the other day: “I somehow feel more orderly in a year that is an even number and not odd..I never… Continue reading Prague: The Charles Bridge

Confessions of a Single Mother: Thank You 2017

Well well well, it’s that time of year yet again. How? How is it 2018 in 2 days time? And how are we at 2018?

Confessions of a Single Mother: JUST SAY YES

Ah such a peaceful sight. You would not think her mother had just spent approximately 2 and a half minutes crying in the airplane toilets due to scenes that had occurred moments prior to this. It all began with the stairs. The unanticipated stairs that made an appearance right by the gate, just as I… Continue reading Confessions of a Single Mother: JUST SAY YES

Budapest: The Great Market Hall, The Liberty Statue and Thoughts on Love

Maia is still off nursery. She is buzzing around, but the 48-hour sickness rule means she can’t go in today. It’s not ideal but this does mean I don’t have to prepare a lunchbox or put a bra on…Always looking for that silver lining.  With the consistent hum of a small child murmuring “I’m gonna… Continue reading Budapest: The Great Market Hall, The Liberty Statue and Thoughts on Love
