I consider myself a strong woman and lately have met other women just like me, mamas who are trying to continue their development whilst doing a million other things. It's hard.

I look for the good in people, even in the worst kind of people. Even in the ones who don't probably deserve it. Which is lovely in many ways, but as I've learned over the years, it can also be a very painful place to willingly put and keep yourself in.

My sister was officially in labour. It was a little surreal since I just rolled over and continued to snooze, conscious of the pain she was about to endure and the chaotic hub of emotion about to let fly, but geographically and mentally I couldn't have felt further away.

I've been thinking all day about how I can find the words for what we experienced last week. An hours drive from my house, then half an hour on the Eurotunnel, and we were in the world's worst refugee camp in terms of resources and conditions, yet we were welcomed with open arms.

The fact that people are willing to marry a complete stranger gives a clear indication of what dating is really like in 2015 - a messy minefield! Put simply, people would rather sign a legal document and spend their life with someone they've never even met than navigate the dating scene.
