Thursday’s Thoughts

Do you ever feel that your head is so full of thoughts you can’t concentrate on any one thing? 

That’s me. Totally. With a busy work and home life sometimes my thoughts all run into each other and I don’t know what to lay down where. Then I jump on Social Media and there are things I want to comment on but I’m not quite sure what and my 15 minutes of downtime has turned into an hour of uselesness (it’s a word! In my house anyway).

One of my happiest and most productive times of work/life balance was when I was writing my weekly lists of Five Things I Learned This Week in 2018. I emptied my head of all those unfiltered thoughts and it turned out I wasn’t alone! A lot of readers liked knowing what had gone on behind the scenes that week. Armed with this (anecdotal) information it’s time to get back to blogging and for 2020 I present to you my weekly column of ‘Thursday’s Thoughts’.

Every Thursday I’ll be posting a brand new blog based on my thoughts/experiences/what I’ve seen on Social Media that week. If you’d like it dropped into your inbox then please sign up to my mailing list or you can follow my Facebook Page and Instagram accounts.

If you’d like to know my thoughts on a particular subject feel free to drop me an email. I reply to all emails that come through my website, except those from spambots because quite frankly spam, both the tinned and virtual kind, sucks.

Wardrobe Woes

I’ve done this parenting gig 3 times over and the one thing that’s been consistent is by the time the baby gets to a year old I want to leave the stretchy waistbands and feeding tops behind and start looking like a regular, semi-fashionable person again.  Last month my baby turned [...]

Lockdown Birthdays

This week my baby turned 1. Don’t ask me where that year’s gone.  Honestly? In a haze of sleepless nights, websites, family drama and a lot of WhatsApp voice notes ranging from ‘I’m on my way and don’t have time to type’ to soul searching, detail filled life updates. My daughter’s [...]

Red Flags

This week I received a message on LinkedIn - it was from another professional I work with who was experiencing difficulties with a client and wanted some advice on how to proceed. She said the client was throwing up a lot of ‘red flags’ and she was feeling uncomfortable working with [...]

Autumn Ills

I’m not going to pretend that I’m a lover of Autumn. All those memes that go around Social Media about being done with summer and ready for pumpkin spice, sweaters and crunchy leaves underfoot were not made with me in mind. Except for pumpkin spice hair colours on Pinterest. As a [...]

Good Girls

If you can’t find me or it’s been a couple of hours and I haven’t replied there’s a very real chance I’m watching Good Girls on Netflix. If you’re a fan of Breaking Bad or Dead to Me then I urge you to block the next week out of your diary [...]


I am now a mother, partner, website designer, pet owner, maths, English, art, science, geography, Home Ec and everything else teacher. Our house has turned into a cafe, restaurant and snack bar (my mood dictates the calibre of food each day - on a good day we’re a restaurant, on a [...]

Getting Kids to Bed

Ok, I’m just going to say what every parent out there is thinking: why don’t kids have an ‘off button’ that when it comes to bedtime you press and they simply go to bed nicely? Please? If anyone is thinking of designing one I wholeheartedly (and without checking with their other [...]
