The MerryBeans

I like to overshare things about my life so setting up my own blog seemed the next logical step.

28.09.18 – Will I ever grow up?

DISCLAIMER: I have drunk (lots of) wine. I never struggle to think of what to blog about, if anything I very often stop myself writing about stuff because I appreciate not everyone is an open book. Some people in my... Continue Reading →

11.09.18 – If you had a magic wand?

Every single day my beans blow my mind. They’re so happy with their life, so content in knowing how much they’re loved and how important they are. I don’t want them to ever lose that feeling. Since me and the... Continue Reading →

26.08.18 – being kinder to ourselves

Earlier this year I had a couple of sessions with a shrink. She was lovely, kind, fierce and made perfect sense. But I'm a stubborn fuck and I didn't have enough time with her for me to take onboard what... Continue Reading →

11.08.18 – Counting my blessings

03.05.18 – #MaternalMentalHealthAwarenessWeek my story

As this week marks maternal mental health awareness week, I thought I’d share my own story. For those of you who know me or have read my previous posts, you’ll know my beans were born at 26 weeks – exactly... Continue Reading →

01.05.18 – Being true to myself

I'm quickly learning more and more that I'm a total people pleaser. I'll order a pizza to share even though I don't really like pizza, I'll not tell a person how I'm feeling in case it's not what they want... Continue Reading →

18.04.18 – Doing our best

To that parent that is giving their toddler a McDonald's for their tea, I know you’re doing your best. Your child may not have eaten anything in three days and you’ve thrown too many casseroles, pasta dishes and vegetable bakes... Continue Reading →
