A hug and a punch

So I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately (ha! That’s me being quiet, people!) and I think it’s because I’m just sort of stuck in limbo, and I’ve had many thoughts going around my head, but somehow not the ones to blog. Most of the time I can forget about infertility. Most of the…

Liebster award!

Thank you to the awesome The Great Pudding Club Hunt for the nomination. (Aww, shucks.) I love Dani’s blog – she used to live in the UK and now she lives in the US which is what I aspire to do one day! If you’re not following her yet, you should! About the Liebster Award: It is…

TFTD: I defy anyone not to get misty eyed over this one

I don’t have a great deal to say today, because I’ve just been getting on with life and it hasn’t been very eventful. It’s not bad… I’m fine. I’m just sort of chugging along. And feeling slightly in limbo, waiting to find out when I am going to have an operation to remove the fibroid…

Untidy office, untidy mind…

So this weekend I thought I’d tackle the very exciting task of sorting out my home office (aka the junkyard that is my desk area). This was partly because we had nothing better to do and partly because I was under the impression that someone was coming to visit. (It turns out the visitor is…

Date night

Sometimes you just have to have a lazy weekend. We kicked it off with date night on Friday. Now, this sounds terribly romantic but was in fact the result of my friend (name changed for anonymity) Flakey McFlake dropping out on me for girls’ night. Naturally I’d been a good friend and booked a nice…

A period, rather than a semi-colon

(Or: Going with the Flo) And here it is. I don’t know how I thought I would feel when I got my period – the first period after my very first pregnancy and my very first miscarriage. (I refuse even after all this time to call it “Aunt Flo(w)” as I don’t believe in calling…

Life ain’t no fairy tale… (or is it?)

One of my favourite sayings is Suck it up, buttercup. I don’t know why, but I find it comical. I can just imagine some drawling John Malkovich type saying Life ain’t no fairy tale, princess. And in the context of what’s been going on in my life recently, it’s sort of comforting in a morose British…

Credit where credit’s due (An update on the Facebook saga)

I posted last week about my frustration regarding Facebook’s targeted advertising, and I received a reply from Beaming Baby (the company which had been advertising nappies to me when I’d just had a miscarriage). In the interests of fairness I thought I would let you know how they responded: Thank you for your message and…

Adding insult to injury

A quick one today, but I had to share. This afternoon my work’s resident crazy lady came round to speak with me. I say “crazy” as she just acts in a way that is usually a bit much for most people. (She went off on maternity leave a while ago and when she had the…

Why I’m choosing not to keep abusive comments on my blog 

(Or: It’s easy to be mean from behind a keyboard) Yesterday I wrote a post about Jennifer Aniston which was meant to be a lighthearted way of making a serious point.  That point was around the well known experience (in the infertility community) of it being assumed that you don’t want kids, and the fact…
