So, what is That Girl Thing all about? And why now? It has taken me a very long time to pluck up the courage to write this blog, but now that the dust is settling on my total life reset, I’m ready to share. When my babies were born, I was well aware that I might be affected by the thing that many pregnant women … Continue reading What’s the story?
“It’s August! This year is flying by, isn’t it?! Now that some areas of my life are starting to calm down, or maybe just get more settled, I decided that it was time to re-start this journal/blog/therapy, whatever you want to call it.” This is what I wrote 9 months ago when I was determined to find time to write again… Since then there has … Continue reading May 2018
It’s taken a good while for me to write about this, The New Woman is now 9 months established, so I’ll be writing in retrospect. I think, with hindsight, that that’s a good thing as it’s been a very emotionally stressful time – for everyone. Much better to write with a clearer head, it’ll hopefully keep me out of trouble… So let’s take it back. … Continue reading The New Woman
It’s August! This year is flying by, isn’t it?!

I’ve never been on the receiving end of a ghosting episode, I always thought it was for the very fabulous, busy millennial types who have grown up … Continue reading The Boy – End of Dates
As Date 4 with The Boy approached I was feeling more and more nervous. Or maybe excited? I couldn't quite put my finger on what the feeling was. I think it's because I'm pretty wide of my norm with this one. He's loud and confident and has no filter whatsoever, what's in his head comes out of his mouth. Don't get me wrong, it's refreshing, … Continue reading The Boy – Fourth Date
Dating – The Boy – 3rd Date – Tues 10th Jan It’s date three! Hurrah!! Now, after a pretty intense first week, I have high hopes for The Boy. He ticks a lot of my boxes, and quite a few that I didn’t know I had. I arrived at his flat, having had a pretty crummy afternoon. I had mentioned to him in passing that it … Continue reading The Boy – Third Date
