Back to normality


Hello and greetings from Westcliff! We returned from our holiday on Saturday, both glad to come home and sad to leave our lovely canal boat. We had a lovely time, but now we’re back there’s a lot to get done. I spent some time whilst on holiday revising for my up-and-coming OSCE exams, but now the revision needs to start in earnest! I’m working my way through a mountain of washing, as well as trying to give the flat a spring clean. The usual culprits of Getty submissions, NIPE revision and being back on placement this week means that everything is gearing up to getting crazy once more… But that’s just how life is right now!


I’m hoping to post my photo an hour posts for March and April this week, as well as my submissions for #brilliantphotoaday for March. I’m also planning on writing some more midwifery/student midwife content soon, but we’ll see how that pans out with everything else I have on my plate right now..!

I’m tired and I feel completely drained right now, so I’m looking forward to finishing off this essay and resuming normal programming at some point… Until then, check out Flickr, which is probably the most up-to-date, accessible part of my life right now. Take care folks!



Hello lovelies! My PC has been feeling under the weather since we returned from Rob and Lauren’s on Sunday (a little knock during traveling, no doubt). When I realised it was going to take a little longer to get things fixed, I decided I’d try to post a little more regularly over on Instagram – so pop there if you feel like you’re missing out! Posts here and on Flickr will be pausing until it’s sorted, which is probably just as well, as I have an exam on Friday I should be revising for…

Life lately…


We’re over halfway through February, and I’m now nearing the halfway point of this academic year. It feels simultaneously like I just started at university a month ago, like I’ve been studying midwifery forever and for barely any time at all, like I’ve learnt tons and yet I have so much to learn!
