The London Marathon Experience: Part One

This is another post which has been a long time coming. Almost four months after I completed the London Marathon, I feel I may be able to write about it. It was an amazing, agonising, uplifting, and strangely addictive experience. And, quite possibly, completely indescribable. Hence me taking so long to attempt this!    ... Continue Reading →

Into The Groove

So, I’ve really neglected my blog in the past several months.  MASSIVE understatement!  I’m sorry dear followers and those kind enough to take a passing interest.  I’m planning on making a comeback now.  The marathon is long over, and I’ll round it up in another post.  My part-time work, which I do from home, is...

He has to put up with a lot living with me. It’s not easy living with someone who has OCD, someone... Continue Reading →

You’ve Got A Friend

Dear Student Midwife, I am writing to thank you for the care you gave myself and my son whilst he was on the neonatal unit. I know you are unlikely to think you did anything other than your job, but to me you did so much more. We were fortunate to have many caring staff... Continue Reading →
