Finding my Fertility (Stage 7)

It’s nearly October and we’re reaching the end of the first leg of this journey. So far, I’ve broken my fertility story into six stages: you can read Stage 6 here, Stage 5 here, Stage 4 here, Stage 3 here, Stage 2 here and, first, Stage 1. For me, the final stage has been egg…

Bibi does…Brighton, with Calandra and Tim

This summer, on one of Brighton’s few hot evenings of the year, 30-odd sweaty foreheads and hastily-foraged freestanding fans bundled into Amy’s Room for another night of Bibi Lynch’s comedy chat show.  This time hosted with local journalist Tracey Davies, Bibi spoke with Brighton’s iconic husband-and-wife duo, Tim Richardson and Calandra Balfour about their story,…

A Sestina for “Matthew”*

I never met a man who was quite so confident in himself. The way he took charge of me shrouded his deep insecurity. Yet lying in the hotel bed, I lay with a man full of hurt, who believed life had not been kind to him and it had made him hard. Reader, he divulged…

Finding my Fertility (Stage 6)

I’ve been injecting for 11 days. On the 13th, I began injecting a solution containing follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) and luteinizing hormones (LH) every evening to help my ovaries grow follicles (fluid filled sacks in which eggs grow).

You’ll likely ignore her and be convinced this is possible in 2021 – after all, Becky and Andy started off shagging and look, they’re now…

I lie in bed

I lie in bed thinking of what I’m yet to remember and what I’m still to forget. What memories are bound to be laid down? Which events will come and go and who, who else will feature in the story of my life? Will this person make their mark? Will they be a protagonist or…
