How Swimming Lessons Helped Me to Create a Laundry Routine

Here's hoping you don't have the same regrets. I regret being ashamed of my infertility I’m sure I’m not alone in this.

My 2020 Word of the Year


I did it in 2018 with great success. I did it again in 2019 with average success. And I'm doing it again in 2020. I've picked a word of the year. My 2020 word of the year is... Environment This year I want to focus on environment. And I've taken that to mean the physical environment of my house and the actual environment. I already know of a few ways I can improve this but I'd love to hear your suggestions. So far I have switched to more ethical and environmentally friendly versions of a few products. Ideally, I'd like to [...]
