Why I chose the pill | Blog

In about Febuary 2016 I finally got round to getting my contraception sorted out. Pickle was 1 and a half and we were still relying on the good old "don't be silly, cover your willy" technique and for us it just wasn't what we wanted anymore. I  had been on the pill for ages before having pickle but was worried I'd forget to take it and I knew I didn't want the implant as I didn't like the idea of having something in my arm so off I trotted to the nurse for some advice.


Before I get into my choices and what I did I just want to say that I think that contraception is a hugely personal choice. What works for one woman may not work with another and everyone has their own reasons for what they like and don't like. This post isn't to push my views on what I think is right but to share with anyone who wants to read it what my experiences are and what works for me.

To my friend who isn't a friend anymore | Blog

To my friend who I thought was my friend...

Do you know that I was so pleased to bump into you the other day as I haven't seen you in a long time?

Did you know that I was really hoping you ask me to sit with you so I wouldn't have to sit on my own?
You know that like any other person I would never have asked to sit with you right?

Do you realise I ate lunch on my own that day feeling like the new girl in school again?

Did you know that all I could hear in my head was that bit from mean girls when they say "you can't sit with us!'

Did you know that I spent the whole time I was out thinking about if I should message you or if I should just blatantly come and ask you what was wrong?

Do you remember how much I hate confrontations though?

Do you realise that you hardly spoke to me...you spoke to me more through my child?

Do you realise that your child spoke to me more than you did?

Do you remember that we used to be best friends... we knew everything about each other and considered each others feelings?

Do you realise that I would never have left you to be on your own..I would have invited you to sit with me?

Did I do something to upset you? 
Have I hurt you? 
Do you just basically not like me anymore?

If that's the case then that's fine as I wouldn't ever want to force anyone to like me.

Just please... next time you decide you don't want to be friends with someone anymore give them a hint. Stop replying to their messages, stop speaking to them or liking their posts on social media, don't be their friend as when they see you in real life and want to speak to you and be your friend, it hurts when they realise you don't want the same.

Love

The girl who thought she was your friend.

Voting..because I should! | Blog

I would class myself as a relatively educated person. I am not stupid (although some may disagree!!haha!). I may lack some common sense but I am pretty 'book smart' as it is put. So why is it that today, on the day when we vote for who will be running our country, do I feel so stupid. It all boils down to the fact that I have NO clue who to vote for.

I've read all the manifestos, I've done numerous online quizzes, I've spoken to friends and family but I am still none the wiser. I agree with parts from all different parties manifestos and disagree with others. I can confidently say that there is no one party that I can confidently say I agree with 100%. Is that normal? Do most people feel like that? All of the people who I see on my social media who are campaigning for certain parties... surely they must agree with a parties policies 100% or they wouldn't be campaigning so hard right? I don't know the answer to any of these but I feel like without knowing that what I am voting for is 100% the right thing for me to do then I can't vote BUT I will still vote because I know I should.

Thinking of getting a Puppy? Read this! | Blog

Before we got our little Cockapoo Puppy Maisie I had an idea in my head of what having a puppy would be like. I had visions of use taking pickle out on his trike whilst Maisie trotted along happily next to us, I imagined evening snuggled up with my gorgeous little puppy on my lap and I could see pickle happily playing catch with her and the two of them running around the garden together. I remember before we brought Maisie home telling people all the things I saw us doing with our new addition and so many people laughed:

''Why are you getting a puppy!!''
''You are crazy''
''It will destroy your house''
''It will be like having a newborn all over again''

A puppy will basically destroy your life!!!!

Well maybe that last bit is a bit of an over exaggeration but it felt like that was what people were trying to say. I shrugged them all off and ignored what people said, focusing on all the happiness this little puppy was going to bring into our family.
