As I look into the mirror I think – whose body is this? It can’t be mine, Dark marks galore and a deep coffee coloured line, That runs all the way down my belly though it isn’t very straight, Fresh burgundy stretch marks and back pain from carrying this extra weight. I haven’t seen my … More 35 Weeks And Counting
And just like that folks, I’ve come to the end of another decade of life, My twenties saw me explore the big city, travel the world, build a career, forge some amazing friendships, move up the country and become a wife! Honestly speaking, I wouldn’t change a single thing, every experience shaped me in a … More Thank You Twenties, It’s Been A Pleasure!
Since before I can remember, maybe circa 2000 perhaps, I’ve always dealt with death in a certain way. Whenever someone close to me has passed, I’ve written a poem about them. Nothing fancy, just the bare bones of how that person made me feel and what I cherished most about them. I’ve always abided by … More Goodbyes From The Heart

Make future plans and talk about settling down, Make you feel like a queen without the crown. But you need to know … More Another One Bites The Dust
The clock’s struck 12 and 2017 is officially done, As we recollect our year’s worth of memories, would we say we’ve lost or won? Well I can safely say that we’ve all had our share of ups and downs, Laughter and smiles mixed with tears and frowns. Because such is the nature of life, all … More Bienvenido A 2018

That floppy, shiny head of hair that always seems to look professionally styled, regardless of how much you jump around. That tiny little button nose that’s turned up ever so slightly at the tip. … More Mi Sobrino
I’m assuming the foetal position on the front room sofa. A small square pillow is lodged between my knees, another is pressed against my belly like a shield. Enveloped in my floor length violet dressing gown, hood and all, My silver laptop is positioned on the oak coffee table in front of me. The opening … More Sick Day
