TO be fair most people would argue my life has been pretty odd since the day I was born. (*winks*) But you know what I’m talking about right? That sense that everything in your world just isn’t going to plan. When things feel like they’re falling apart and no matter how hard you try, everything just doesn’t want to work out. Like it should or like it normally does.
IT’S been a while since I’ve blogged and blimey, I haven’t half missed it! But you know how it is. Life, well sometimes it just kinda gets in the way, doesn’t it? It’s been a busy few weeks in my world with one thing and another, so I thought I’d give you the lowdown as to what has been going on and what I’ve been up to.
TODAY I’m back with another Agony Aunt column. I haven’t done one for a while (if you’re interested, you can catch up on the others here) so when this letter popped into my inbox, I knew straightaway that I needed to answer it quickly. Why?

AS a blogger, it’s hard not to think that you suck sometimes. That your work has little meaning. Or to put it bluntly… that it’s total and utter crap. I feel this way every couple of weeks at least. It’s a regular occurrence in my world. An old, familiar enemy.

Little notes on bits of paper. Reminders. Dates. Torn out recipes I want to try one day. Internal memos. Dreams, hopes and desires. Life. Love. Work. Relationships. Motherhood. I’m exhausted just even
I KICKED off my blog this year with a simple request. That we all try a little bit harder to be kind to ourselves. (Because it’s not always easy is it?)

THE older I get, the more I’m beginning to realise that when it comes to life… You need to be a bit like a rubber ball. To deal with being thrown around. To handle being knocked off your feet.

IT’S great to see how more and more women are not only entering the working world, but also getting in the driving seat. The situation has really been helped by the fact car dealerships are shifting their purchase experience away from a complex, male-dominated environment, to a more transparent and diverse customer base.
