One of my New Year resolutions was to eat better. Better in the sense that I need to eat more, more regularly, better choices and a more varied diet. I’ve recently lost weight unintentionally as I’m unfortunately prone to nausea as a side effect of Agoraphobia. I really need to nourish my body again! My […]Read More Eat Well Diary : Week One
I sometimes imagine myself somewhere away from home. Confident, feeling powerful and enjoying my surroundings. Then reality hits – I can’t do it, I can’t go there.

I’m a Mum of 3 (Evie is 8, Travis is 5 & Betsy is 1, she is our last baby & has definitely made her mark on the family.
