Going Back on Antidepressants After a Few Weeks of Poor Mental Health

For the last few weeks I think it’s safe to say that I’ve struggled quite a bit with my mental health. I tried to muddle my way through it like I usually do, but by Sunday night I knew I had to sort myself out before it got any worse. I quickly made an appointment with the doctor and by Monday night I had taken my first antidepressant since Isabelle was roughly 6 weeks old.

Halloween Spooktacular at Bristol Zoo Gardens

Prior to becoming a parent, Halloween was never something that I massively cared about. For us it was just a case of either hiding away in the house with all the lights off, or going somewhere else to ensure we remained undisturbed by the trick-or-treaters.

But I’m just trying to add a little bit of balance to this…

Sippy cups, Doidy cups, ones with straws and a few 360 degree trainer cups. What we never gave thought to over that time was the environmental impact that these cups might have. So when EvoCups reached out and asked us to review their environmentally sustainable, plastic free baby cup, we said we’d be more than happy to give them a go.

Review: Rainy Day at Folly Farm – The Perfect Wet Weather Attraction

If there was ever a bleaker, more miserable day than the one on which we visited Folly Farm, then I don’t want to see it. We had the unfortunate luck to visit whilst the UK was being battered by storm Callum and our toddler was feeling rather sick. If there was any luck to be had, then it’s that Folly Farm has plenty on offer to provide a lot of fun on a rainy day. Here’s a review of our day at the petting zoo!
