The Transfiguration of Jesus by Raphael – Talking About Jesus on Easter

Well this is a slightly different post to usual. But since it’s Easter, I thought I’d actually talk about Jesus! So I’m basically going to talk about Jesus via a painting that we have in our house. It’s the Transfiguration by Raphael. I’ll admit that this is a slightly random print to have, especially for non-religious people, but we do have our reasons. Here it is: The Transfiguration I love this painting. We first saw the Transfiguration when my wife and I went to Rome. It was our first holiday abroad together as just the two of us and, like…

Teething Sometimes Turns Me Into a Bad Dad

Last night I really didn’t like my daughter. She was a teething, screaming mess and instead of looking at her with concern and sympathy, I just thought she was a DICK. Basically, I wasn’t the best dad I could’ve been. In all honesty, I was a pretty bad dad. And unfortunately I sometimes get like that when teething seemingly takes over. Teething Sometimes Turns Me Into a Bad Dad Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m not that much of a bad dad. The vast majority of the time I’m really good with Isabelle. But like most people, I do have…

Using Online Support to Help With Postnatal Depression

When it comes to depression, it’s incredibly important to have a place to be able to talk openly and honestly about how you are feeling.

Or maybe, perhaps, there isn’t anywhere a person feels like they can go to where they can open up, and talking to their family isn’t something they feel comfortable with either. That’s where the internet comes in.

I’m not going to lie, Sunday night I had what can only be described as a little bit of a breakdown with postnatal depression. So I’m going to do what I’ve always done since the very first post on this blog. And talk about my mental health and this little breakdown that I had. Having a Breakdown with Postnatal Depression I had a rough week in general last week. I wasn’t in a really bad place in terms of my depression, I’ve certainly been in worse, but for whatever reason, I just didn’t feel connected with Isabelle again. It all started on Tuesday…

Isablog #22 – Ups and Downs Again with Depression

As you may already know with this blog, I like to keep things honest. So I’m going to start things off by saying this week started with me struggling. This isn’t the first time since considering myself clear of postnatal depression that I’ve struggled, and I know that it won’t be the last. Depression is a massive part of my life, and it’s always going to be there; I think at this point, it’s just a fact. I’m not going to go too heavy into details about why I might have struggled, but suffice it to say, that I very…
