I am not usually the type of person to get particularly upset by “news”, in fact, I’m a down right apathetic person at times, especially when it comes to the murder and mayhem that the BBC seem to thrust at me every time I check the app. It’s depressing and I’ve always maintained that getting… Continue reading
You often hear it said of the housing crisis, and how it is becoming increasingly challenging for us Brits to get on the housing ladder. But I was quite shocked to read that roughly 75 per cent of British people have given up on owning their own place!
I don’t even really know how to address this, I just find it so deeply saddening. Last week a young woman, call Qandeel Baloch, was killed in an honour killing because she was a social media star and as if that isn’t horrific enough, thousands took to her social media channels, mainly Instagram, to celebrate… Continue reading

The review has concluded with plans to give women a £3000 budget to help support their choice to have a birth outside of the… Continue reading
“War? Mummy, I don’t want to go to war! I don’t want my sister to die!” Those little words, that little voice.

I wanted to write about the terror attacks in Paris, but as someone who never really shuts up, I find myself struggling to know what to say. Whilst I was feeding Edith on… Continue reading
This really riled me – maybe it was because last week was so crappy, or because I’m so firmly against any kind of mother shaming – I don’t know, it just really incensed me. A new campaign (funded by Nestle – surprise surprise) has been… Continue reading
