It’s my husband’s birthday today (happy birthday darling), and I am SO relieved! I’ve been planning a surprise birthday quest since I set up the Facebook event on a late night I-definitely-won’t-regret-this-in-the-morning whim back in July, and have been dying to tell him ever since. The reason I kept it a secret all this time is because he’s a meddler. I knew if I … Read More

Domestic violence: How to speak out if you’re not a victim

Alice | Letters to my DaughterBlog, Support & Mental HealthLeave a Comment

I have never been a victim of domestic violence and for that, I am truly and immeasurably grateful.

I love reading but, since becoming a mum, I’ve struggled to find the time. I realised recently that I’d read just 1 book in 2.5 years… and it was about potty training… joy.
