How to deal when you’ve had no sleep

We have been through many of these phases before. Screams welcome us to a new dawn — or not even close to dawn yet — and we’re bleary-eyed, dragging our feet and flagging from the get go. How on earth do we deal with these days where the amount of “sleep” you got the night

We’ve just one of those weeks where all 3 of us are exhausted, but we just keep pushing on. Hubby is training for a charity bike ride via work, but since those who have arranged it are shockingly disorganized, he still has no details aside from the day and that they’re biking 80ish miles from

My hormone journey: The appointment

So, last week I talked about My Hormone Journey postpartum and what it was like to take an at-home blood test. I mentioned that I managed to get an appointment with my doctor with a view to get blood tests done. I was extremely nervous leading up to it and it was a miracle that

My hormone journey: background

I’ve already mentioned in previous┬áposts and on Instagram that I have been having issues with my hormones since January 2017, but have realized that I haven’t talked about exactly what has been going on here on the blog.

Another week, another illness it seems! Third one since the start of 2018. Oh the joys of having a kiddo who is going through his first winter at nursery/daycare! He was really tired Friday night and felt a bit warm, but not feverish. He was barely able to stay up to 1 hour before his

Lagom: The Swedish Art of Balanced Living book review

As I posted a few weeks ago on Instagram, I hit the real jackpot at my local library! I went in to take a few books back that we had out over the Christmas period and found Lagom*** along with The Little Book of Hygge***! These were both books I nearly bought at our local

This week hasn’t exactly gone the way we’ve expected it, but when does it ever? The kiddo came down with Hand, Foot and Mouth Tuesday morning which meant The Brit was working at home and looking after him all week while I was working. Munchkin was himself, but we obviously had to quarantine him and
