Let me reintroduce myself

There are moments in life that define us - maybe immediately, or perhaps they set off a transformation that rolls out over time. A journey. The last few years have been the latter for me. Quite simply, I'm different to the me who was here two years ago. It's fair to say I've been through the fire… Continue reading Let me reintroduce myself

At Our House, Celiac Journey

Grumpy celiac feeling better

The other day I drafted a post titled Grumpy Celiac. I'm glad I didn't publish as it was pretty wretched! To be fair, I was miserable. But this week, while acknowledging that it's not all roses, I'm back to being positive and in action mode. Last week I was feeling like, well, like I did before I was diagnosed Celiac.… Continue reading Grumpy celiac feeling better

Our technology take down

Have you ever noticed you were watching something on TV that you weren't really interested in ... but there wasn't anything else on? Or you get to bed only to think you'll just check your Facebook page ... one ... more ... time? Or get sick of the kids fighting over who has had a longer… Continue reading Our technology take down

INSTAblogging

As 2015 has well and truly set itself in motion, I realise how different this year is to the last one. Without getting all deep and personal about the big stuff (for a change), I just realistically, don't have as much time on my hands to blog as I used to. Ironically, giving up work… Continue reading INSTAblogging

Bullying still sucks

Regular readers of Abbie's Babble might be aware of our struggles this year with bullying (my seven-year old daughter has been bullied over the last few months). Unfortunately, things have hit an all-time low and I felt forced to remove my girl from school for the rest of the year (our school year finishes in 10… Continue reading Bullying still sucks

Feeling strong

It came as a bit of a shock to me the other day. I realised I was okay. I am actually okay. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I have clarity, peace and calm - my thoughts and feelings aren't overshadowed by one specific emotion or event. I'm living and… Continue reading Feeling strong

Just playing in the background

It's not really a writing day today so I've just been playing in the background of my blog. I can not for the life of me get the Goodreads widget to work (I'm trying to show my currently reading  list). The WordPress help forums are super helpful though and no doubt they'll have an answer for me… Continue reading Just playing in the background

Now is the time

I firmly believe this. I refuse to delay 'living' any longer. NOW is the time to create happiness, to create memories, to be joyful and thankful. NOW is the time to live. I have more posts coming on this, including why I quit my job this week... By the way, if you haven't checked out… Continue reading Now is the time

Being happy

Being happy is not just 'not being sad'. Being happy is your soul singing, the good emotions bubbling from the depth of your belly, loving your life so much you can find good in every day. In my humble opinion anyway. We can't just expect 'happy' in our life. Although I'm sure many do. Happy is something… Continue reading Being happy

THE BUSY IS WRONG

On Sunday I heard this: "If you're too busy to do that, then your busy is wrong". Your BUSY is WRONG. This has been in my head for days now and ties together a few things that have bugged me lately. I don't know about you but I've noticed the default answer to the question… Continue reading THE BUSY IS WRONG

NO NEED TO BE PERFECT

For a self-confessed perfectionist and control freak, this is a big life lesson for me at the moment. I've read this quote a number of times and felt compelled to create it in a form for my own space - a note to self you could say. You can click through to this post for an example of… Continue reading NO NEED TO BE PERFECT
