Appearing on This Morning to Talk About Postnatal Depression

Well, here’s something I never thought I’d say. Today we sat on the This Morning sofa and had a chat with Amanda Holden and Ben Shepherd about postnatal depression. Appearing on This Morning to Talk About Postnatal Depression It all started last week. Someone from the Wales Online asked me whether it would be ok to run my postnatal depression story on the website accompanied by a doctors take on the illness to help back it up a bit. I was a little bit apprehensive about it, but eventually I thought to myself that since it’s already in the public…

Isablog #10 – Travelling to Pembroke and Keeping Perspective

This week I finally decided to start a Postnatal Depression Toolkit, and did the first post to go with it all about medication. Whilst I do enjoy writing about being a parent, it’s also something that’s relatively new to me.

What We Learned from taking a Four Month Old Baby on Holiday I don’t want to talk massively about the trip, as I’ve summed it up on the UK Road Trip post. On there I’ve also talked about each individual day. So if you really want an in-depth look what what we did, then I of course recommend that one. As for the road trip in general, we…

UK Road Trip Day Six: Hinckley Island

Today started pretty early. By 5:50 I was on the top deck, watching the sunrise and smoking a Cuban cigar. Don’t get me wrong, I probably looked a little bit like a dick. A cigar really doesn’t suit me. But it’s on my bucket list to smoke one, and doing it in that setting seemed like as good a place as any.
