Recently, more than ever I’m grateful. I’m incredibly grateful for the gift of language that I’ve been given. Not only have I been able to make a career out of it, as an English teacher, writer and blogger; but I know that my ability with words is starting to benefit my children. All parents have a different unique skill, talent or awareness that they are lucky enough to be able to share...

One of my favourite things about going to the hairdresser is flicking through the magazines. I weaned myself off glossies years ago, about the time when it was a choice between Marie Claire and a pack of nappies, but I still love a good Grazia binge when I’m getting my roots done. Last week, I had the pleasure of discovering what a typical day in the life of supermodel and successful...

In many families, there are Easter traditions that are observed every year. It might be parlour games, a walk in the park, or Sunday lunch in the cosy, local pub. Whatever it is, we all enjoy taking the time out after the long gruelling winter to be able to spend time with family and friends. Of course, Easter is first and foremost a religious celebration, but my kids aren’t quite ready yet to...

The warnings of my childhood dentist were literally ringing in my head. Why? Because, after years of sloppy, lazy dental hygiene, I was finally facing root canal treatment. Terrified doesn’t really come close to describing how I felt as I drove from work last Monday afternoon to the dentist – it was as though my car was doing the driving for me, forcing me to get out and walk on wobbly legs...

The triplets are three weeks old today and what a three weeks it has been. It feels like we live in a bubble and our world revolves around the Coombe hospital and three tiny human beings who continue to amaze us every day. Hannah was first out and seems to be the leader of the pack so far. She was the heaviest and since day 1 has had no complications. She was on some breathing assistance initially...

Wednesday 25th January[/u][/b] In my previous blog post, I reminded myself to ‘Expect the Unexpected’, however, of course I didn’t listen to my own advice! There was still a blood flow issue to the smallest triplet but it hadn’t worsened since the 11th January. My husband John was home from London, working from home and attended daily scans with me until Monday 23rd January and when things...

When we first discovered that we were having triplets, I remember one of the midwives in London telling me to always expect the unexpected in relation to this pregnancy and not to jump to any conclusions or guess how things would go. I don’t think I took this advice very seriously until last Wednesday, January 11th when I was told that there was intermittent absent blood flow to the smallest...

I‘ll never forget those words uttered by the lovely lady sonographer in St George’s hospital as she held my hand tightly at the first scan. I’m almost a little embarrassed by this but I reacted by bursting into tears and shaking from head to toe uncontrollably, John held one hand while she held the other in an attempt to steady me and she quickly let us listen to their heartbeats to calm me...

Our bags are indeed packed… are we ready to go? That is another question entirely! My husband, John and I have lived in London for 7 years and on October 7th 2016 we discovered at our 3 month scan that we were expecting triplets. The word shock doesn’t even begin to cover the feelings that we both felt that day. A lot of life decisions were required and life was suddenly on fast forward. John...

You can imagine my surprise and delight to receive not one, but two invitations to parent-teacher meetings in one week. Thankfully, the invitations arrived at such short notice (a week in one case, and two days in the other) that I did not have an opportunity to build up much of a sense of dread and apprehension. As it happened, the events were two very different experiences, prompting me to...
