The MerryBeans

I like to overshare things about my life so setting up my own blog seemed the next logical step.

10.10.18 – #worldmentalhealthday

If you’re lucky enough to have never suffered with mental health issues then you may attach the cliché stigma of “man up” or “pull yourself together” to it, but deep down we all know it’s not that easy. My mental... Continue Reading →

28.09.18 – Will I ever grow up?

DISCLAIMER: I have drunk (lots of) wine. I never struggle to think of what to blog about, if anything I very often stop myself writing about stuff because I appreciate not everyone is an open book. Some people in my... Continue Reading →

11.09.18 – If you had a magic wand?

Every single day my beans blow my mind. They’re so happy with their life, so content in knowing how much they’re loved and how important they are. I don’t want them to ever lose that feeling. Since me and the... Continue Reading →

26.08.18 – being kinder to ourselves

Earlier this year I had a couple of sessions with a shrink. She was lovely, kind, fierce and made perfect sense. But I'm a stubborn fuck and I didn't have enough time with her for me to take onboard what... Continue Reading →

16.05.18 – I’m gonna throw in the towel and live on a riverboat

Yep, that's today's mood (and yesterday's actually). Had a tough night with the beans last night. When I put them to bed they decided their backs hurt so I kissed them better, then I hear four little feet and sounds... Continue Reading →

03.05.18 – #MaternalMentalHealthAwarenessWeek my story

As this week marks maternal mental health awareness week, I thought I’d share my own story. For those of you who know me or have read my previous posts, you’ll know my beans were born at 26 weeks – exactly... Continue Reading →

01.05.18 – Being true to myself

I'm quickly learning more and more that I'm a total people pleaser. I'll order a pizza to share even though I don't really like pizza, I'll not tell a person how I'm feeling in case it's not what they want... Continue Reading →
