I don’t dispute that breast is best but it’s really not as simple as that.

When I was pregnant with Kitty there was not a doubt in my mind that I was going to breast feed for as long as possible.  I was certain of it.  I was convinced that it was the most natural thing in the world and the very best thing that I could do for her.  I had friends who told me that their supply hadn’t been up to the job but I had considered that to be more about confidence than biology.  Of course you had enough milk,  everyone...

Upsetting dream

I had an upsetting dream that I’m struggling to forget about.

Love, work, insecurity and Rosco

It’s been an eventful few days. On Friday morning my boy dog was taken to the vet to have his teeth dealt with, by dealt with I mean he had most of them removed.

The deadlines were tight and I was forced to work hard to meet them, my boy came home to me that afternoon and I was too busy to spend much time with him. Pete...
