• An open letter to my mum in anticipation of Mother’s Day

    I am not an emotionally demonstrative person. For me personally, it is much easier to show someone how I feel through my actions as opposed to my words. However, if anyone deserves a public display of affection, it’s my mum. So I will attempt to put into words what I know I could never articulate in person. Mum, this is for you… I see you You have always been Mum. With the blindness and self centeredness of a child, I wasn’t truly able to see you as more than my parent until I myself became a mother.

  • No sugar – Week 2

       I wouldn’t say Week 1 was an epic fail…but I definitely didn’t stick to the no added sugar rule 🙈 Mon – small slice of cake Tues – small ice cream cone Wed – small ice cream cone Thurs – good day Fri – good day Sat – half a large mint choc slab and coconut ice Sun – the other half of the slab 🙈 This is actually really good compared to the previous weeks so I’m going to look at this as slow but definitive progress in the right direction. Week 2 started yesterday and I’ve been good so far so I’m optimistic!
