Dancing on Ice and Gemma Collins. Have some respect!

This has been on my mind since Sunday, and I couldn't really keep it in any longer...  I love Dancing on Ice, it's not even a guilty pleasure, it's just pleasure.  It's a couple of hours I get to spend with my girls, watching something that isn't Disney-related, and...

Planning and Strategising doesn’t work (for me…)

Nine years later…

I feel like everything's coming undone, in a good way... 9 years ago, I was signed off work with stress related insomnia. At the time, I was a single mum to a 2-year-old, working full time, with a 2-hour commute each day. I'd beaten myself up trying to be, do and have...
