Snippets from my life as a #socialworkstudent
My life has narrowed down to three main things. Work. Parenting. Study. These three things are my focus. I can hardly recognise this version of myself. A version of myself that is happy to study in every spare minute. And quite a few that aren't! A version ...

Tomorrow is the first day of the new semester....
And I'm going to begin my Master's in Social Work. I was going to do one paper, but I can only get a student loan if I do two papers. So two it is. Somehow being suddenly confronted with doubling the workload has definitely thrown me for a spin. I mean what...

Getting things done is better than waiting till you can do it perfectly. And sometimes you just need to call it done and move on.

I made a list and I've checked it twice....
Yesterday we shifted out of our house and today I went back to get the last few things and pay the cleaning company. When I looked in the letterbox, there was my graduation certificate. It was so bittersweet to get it. It was great to be able to tick someth...

Parenting: it works until it doesn't. so then you change things up
I've been parenting now for almost 25 years. 25 years. You'd think that I would have it all together now. Sadly I don't. It's been proved to me this week. Anyway as a result of this, I've been reassessing my current parenting strategy and working out what n...

The in between.
Right now I’m in the middle of making life changing decisions. Lots of them. It’s scary as can be but also kind of empowering in a way. For years and years I chose to live stuck in my situation, but now that I’ve started changing things, I can’t seem to sto...
