  • What to do when your anxiety throws a temper tantrum

    ‘That’s not very nice’ he kept repeating from his bedroom. His sing songy voice going between that phrase and ‘the wheels on the bus go round and round.’

    It was meant to be his naptime but my 2 year old wasn’t having a bar of it. A bottle of milk perhaps, but no nap.

    I’d laid him in his cot after a big morning out at play group. It had already been an interesting morning starting with him not wanting to put on his clothes. I’d pull his pants up (soft leggings because ‘jeans are too cold’ apparently) and then he would wiggle out of them.

    Then later on he was swinging my button necklace round and because I was scared he was about to whip me with it I pushed his hand away from me firmly.


  • Choose your own adventure

    One of my core values is adventure.

    I love travelling, I love getting off the beaten track, I love trying new things (as long as I don’t feel like I am going to die in the process- fear of heights much…)

    But I’ve felt lately that over the years that adventurous spirit has died down a bit all in the name of routine.

    I remember the girl who would get out in all her clothes in a storm and just twirl in the rain and open my mouth to catch the droplets…
