Posts From the Self Isolation Bubble – Adjustment Angst

My first blog from an alternative universe. I’m blogging from my bedroom, the place that has become my refuge. It’s peaceful, I have a lovely view across the fields and hedges at the back of my house. And most importantly I can close the door and escape from my kids. Yep, I’m living in aContinue reading “Posts From the Self Isolation Bubble – Adjustment Angst”

International Women’s Day 2020 – Learning to Celebrate Myself

I always struggle with this day. Not because I feel obliged to stick up a post on Facebook, Instagram or any other social media.

Here, Hare, Here – March Arrives and it’s about time.

So, March – it’s about bloody time. I thought we’d never see the back of February! And I’m not talking about the WiHM promotion – that was great, loved every minute of it.
