Take People As You Find Them

I'm writing this because I know how easy it is to judge and potentially, condemn others based on their actions on people you know and care about. That pack mentality to deride someone because they've hurt another/others. To form an opinion based on well, another's opinion and possibly not on fact because everything in life is so utterly subjective.

The Importance of Date Night

Peter and I had scheduled in a date night for Sunday night for a while yet when the time came round and the freezing cold set in (it was minus 15 or something or it felt it at least), fatigue from the weeke...

My 10 Step Code to Living a Content Life

I'm hitting the milestone that is 35 in November, and on reflection, this year has been one of not only my happiest yet but in many ways, no doubt the biggest learning curve I've had thus far, as my blogging business has expanded, I've rediscovered yoga, trialled different ways of eating and exercising and have found myself time and time again, pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

A Day with my Aunties

My family are utter happy-makers and that's the 'truth Ruth'!

A Brotherly Love/Hate Relationship

Aw, soft focus pictures of our boys together kissing and cuddling, Oliver our firstborn and heir looking lovingly at his younger brother, our darling baby Alexander. Bless. Fast forward a year. Oliver realises his brother is sticking around for more than just the photo opp (and he's loud, confident and wants to play with his toys). Like forevs. The adoration is still there, sure it is. But from Alexander to his older brother. A spends his days gazing at Big Bro brimming with love and admiration.

Friendship Divorce

Argh, friendship divorce...I've been meaning to write this post for a while and although it might well sound controversial, I don't mean it to be. I first read about 'Friendship Divorce' in one of the glossies and it really resonated with me at the time. I think once you have a child, you are forced to prioritise, you suddenly have no time for bull****, negativity and clearly friendships which don't work.
