The Fear Unspoken

Last week, I happened to read something online about the death of broadcaster Rachael Bland, who died at the age of 40 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. But I’ll be truthful – I hadn’t actually heard of the Radio Five Live presenter until I read about her death. Why her particular story stuck out to me…

Fifty Days of Summer

All good things must come to an end as the saying goes… And so it is that our seven weeks of school holidays have finally disappeared. Who knew that fifty days could pass so quickly? (I can multiply, by the way – we just got a cheeky extra day 😉 ). 2018 has definitely been…

Life Within Four Corners – February 2018

Don’t adjust your screens folks, that’s right, I’m still on February time here at Wellies on the School Run. Between writing posts on my latest Little Loves, a Sunday well spent at the beach and World Book Day last week I just didn’t get around to posting my favourite photos of the month. In future…

The Muse, Stranger Things and Winter Warmers #LittleLoves

It’s been a slightly healthier week in the Wellies household this week and I’m just glad I don’t have to put ‘sick days’ in another title for this post. We’re all back to school, work and the normal Monday to Friday – but after a week of dodging hailstones on dog walks I could do…

Happy, DIY Beauty and Sick Days #LittleLoves

Welcome back to another outing of Little Loves, a little later than normal this week as I’ve had a poorly boy at home with the latest sick bug doing the rounds at school. The downside of the temperatures dropping is the inevitable transition into norovirus territory…the upside is a day at home watching movies and…

The 2017 Feed With Confidence Awards from Lansinoh

My kids may be getting a bit bigger these days, but I still have vivid memories of the many hours spent breastfeeding them when they were babies. The smell of their skin, their little fingers wrapped around my own – and easily getting through a whole episode of Desperate Housewives in the space of just one newborn feed.…

And So It Ends….

This week marked the end of the long summer holidays here in the North of Scotland, and called a halt to lazy weekday mornings, clock-watch free afternoons, and kids playing out late on balmy summer evenings (ok, the balmy bit might be pushing it – we do live in Caithness after all). Before we knew it the start of the new school…

Just over a year ago, while leafing through my copy of the latest ‘Writers and Artists Yearbook’ and trying to work out how I could turn writing from a dream into a career, I stumbled upon an article saying something along the lines that as a writer, the Internet was your friend. For me, the technologically…
