Five Minutes On Loss

Trigger Warning: Detailed talk of child loss/medical experiences.

I've been a bit of funk of late and could not for the life of it get to the bottom of what's going on. Then it hit me: My head has reached capacity. 

We go through so many things in our lives. Some bad and some marvellous. Some we talk about and some we don't. Ultimately, I guess we must reach a point where we're fully loaded - That's one of the original reasons I started this blog; A space to vent, to share and maybe even somewhere that other big odd women can relate or refer to. 

I absolutely do not want this to be a site that is SAD and SERIOUS because I am 100% neither, unless I am a. Hungover or b. Pretending I am an adult for a job/loan/other adult reasons. However, I have this space and I need to stay true to my original intentions. 
I PROMISE MY NEXT POST WILL BE KNICKERS.

So here is a big folder that has been archived in my brain, on a topic that I've mentioned time and time again, because grief really is an emotion that never truly leaves you, regardless of whether you feel it should or whether the thing you lost is no longer something you need.

Five Minutes on Breaking Down

***Trigger Warning: Mental Health***

When I was 29 I had a breakdown.

 It started as butterflies in my stomach. 
A constant feeling of “something is wrong” without knowing what. 
Then I started to forget words, simple words like potato and microwave (vital words in my jacket potato life). 
I would go to work and “wake up” staring at my hands, not sure how long I’d been sitting that way and scared that people were noticing that I was quite clearly a massive weirdo.

Firstly, you may notice that Terrible Tumbles has had a little rebrand and I am now (Drumroll please) 

The Em Edit. 

After a friend accidentally referred to me as "Tumble Tots" I realised that maybe the time had come. The content will remain the same, I'll just be confused less with toddler group.

SO here we are: RIP Terrible Tumbles, Long live The Em Edit!

Style | I Am My Own Best Gift with Playful Promises

It's that time of year when the shops are full of pink and red things, heterosexual men are wondering whether they should start thinking about booking that reasonably priced Italian restaurant and I’m readying myself for sausage, chips and beans at Morrisons (Not a metaphor…) It's also the time of year when our favourite lingerie brands bring out the hottest of their looks - HURRAY!
