Polycystic Ovaries and Fertility

On deciding to write about PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), I’ve discovered it’s Polycystic Awareness Month!  And as it comes to the end of the month, it’s a good opportunity to write about my experiences of PCOS. Until a few years ago, I didn’t know I had PCOS.  At the age of 25, I had my…

The builder.

Friday, 4pm rolls around. The drilling and radio stop. Today, new problems have been found, and the client is ready to flop. Finishing his fourth cup of coffee of the day, the builder talks of the weekend (to her dismay).   “I’m not allowed ou’ on my own,” the builder says to the client. “the…

Working Bookstack

My working bookstack: These are the books currently informing my writing.  Some have been in the stack for years (the wrong knickers, milk and honey, the sun and her flowers) because they provide new inspiration on each opening.  Others are added to my over-flowing bookshelves once I’ve worked through my annotations (e.g. Polly Vernon’s ‘Hot…

September Feels

Oh, September in Britain.  The end of summer, that ‘back-to-school’ feeling, the disappointments of not achieving all those summer plans.

As my readers will know, I LOVE Deborah Frances-White and her podcast, ‘The Guilty Feminist’.  Well, now she’s written a book of the same name and her book tour ended in Brighton.  You can buy Deborah’s book from Waterstones here.  My friend and fellow blogger joined me for an evening of giggles, roaring laughter and…

An education. Or: once you see it, you can’t un-see it.

Recently, I’ve had time to read and my genre du jour is feminism in the modern day.  I wanted to challenge my mindset that feminism is about chopping up bras, hating men and protesting over unequal pay (although I fully support this cause, obviously).  As well as talking with friends and females in my family, my…
