You’ve been complaining a lot. You whinge about your children. Your house. How busy you are. The activities you take your kids to. The amount of time they “need” you. Your lack of sleep. You complain about the holiday you just took where you couldn’t relax and you complain about the amount of time you had to spend at the shops prior to Christmas. You complain about the weather, you complain about your husband. You are justified. You are righteous. You are the victim in every story. These things have been done to you and you need to be soothed, cajoled, reassured that you are justified, you are right and you are the victim. You’ve spoken about these things with multiple people and they have reinforced your position and shared their own complaints. You have fired up for them and given them advice for the would’ve, could’ve, should’ves. If you are feeling uncomfortable right now thinking I’m talking about you…please be rest assured I am not. I haven’t been in your house judging you, taking notes and saving up every comment you make for my blog. Like most of the things I write here – I’m talking about me. Only me.

I've been wanting to rewrite this hastily written post for a while. Who Am I? It's a big question with no easy answer. How do you define yourself outside of the normal, "I'm a Mum, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend" parameters? This weekend I read a blog that has inspired me entitlted More than a Mum. [...]
Today's Mantra: Live and be happy This week I've found myself talking differently. Not out loud, but to myself. And I realised something. Surrounding myself with positive books and websites has changed my inner voice. A visit to the Children's Hospital on Monday night with poor little Julian, left me waiting for hours with a [...]
Today's Mantra: Life is beautiful I watched a show last night that really got to me. I won't say what it was in case I spoil the plot. It's amazing how your mind let's you get on with things and how life lets you move on from tragedy. You never forget, but you heal. Last [...]
I wrote yesterday's blog and it hit home with a few people, they identified, they sympathized. But...we all know, and yesterday it went unsaid, that we wouldn't change a thing. I love motherhood. I am the happiest i have ever been. The soft smell of my babies head, the cheeky-grin from my toddler, the decision-making, the [...]
