Anxiety mental health mental illness mum life

That time I called Beyond Blue in peak hour traffic

If you’ve been around here for a while you’d know I’m an anxious bitch. I don’t mention it in my Instagram bio (maybe that’s covered by the ‘one-woman shit show’ bit actually) but I was an anxious bitch long before I became a sad & tired parent also. Some of you may also not know that I donate part of my sales to mental health support services. I usually do this at the end of every second month after tallying you my sales. And then I alternate the donation each time between two different organisations. One of the organisations I...

To the parent that just found out their child is on the Autism spectrum

To the parent that just found out their child is on the spectrum, it isn't your fault and it's nothing you have done. Believe me I know how heartbreaking it is to find out your little bundle of joy isn't "progressing" or "meeting their milestones" like everyone else's child. Furthermore, not understanding how this could happen because "my child doesn't look Autistic". The reality is that Autism DOES NOT have a face, it's different in every single person, and unfortunately is an invisible disability. You can't stop feeling like you've done something wrong, and laying awake at night worrying about...

What is it with humans and multiple breeding? Who decided it was okay to go forth and have more than one child? Jesus was an only child (I had to Google that), I was an only child and I’m pretty sure there are a few others out there too.

I had better things to do, like party and spend my Sundays nursing bad hangovers and poor choices in party pashes on the dance floor.Meet Paul, a handsome younger fellow, sporting...

The Mental Load

Let me just rattle off an example of a day in the life of a mum. Well, me. This is a day in the life of me and I'm a stay at home mum so I'm just going to throw it out there and say that this could probably cover a lot of other mums (the ones I've spoken to, at least). My day starts when my baby wakes up, which is usually at the same time my partner gets up for work (6:15am) because my two-year-old comes into our bed every night so his alarm usually wakes her too....
