The other day I hit the emotional wall.

And it was mainly to do with my kids. Being school holidays, I hadn’t had a break from them at all, and I was pretty much over it. They were at the stage where they were just picking and picking and picking at each other. Constant...

You’re off to your Christmas function, looking hot, of course, and have told yourself you won’t over eat whilst you’re there.

Okay, I wasn't actually a frog in some freaky past life reincarnation situation, but I was living my life like one.  Read on, you’ll get my drift.

Cue Dr Libby Weaver's analogy on women and stress:
