So, it appears we are at the beginning of two stages: firstly, discovering which friends really make the cut, and secondly, putting up with random people's unsolicited advice. Granted, the second is the joy every new parent has to learn to deal with. You smile, go oh really, that's interesting, I'll look into that, and … Continue reading Unsolicited Advice
Sometimes, you get taken right back to square one. Or maybe square three. Today started okay, I had every intention to do a few errands, go for a walk, get outside.

You literally just never know the kind of day you are going to have, until you have had it.
