    Default Adios Bubhub!

    I need a break from the Internet.

    I'm on here way too much and between Bubhub, Facebook and super depressing stuff in the news (the last straw was an article today about women ISIS members who killed a mother in Raqqa for breastfeeding her baby - I mean where do you even begin with something like that) - with all that I'm realising that the Internet is just making me super anxious at the moment and I feel like my precious time wth DS is both rapidly running out and spent worrying about things that are mostly happening online instead of in real life.

    So I'm taking a self imposed break. I'll be back at some point, probably when I have to go back to work and need tips on how to cope with being a working mum or later in the year when I do IVF again.

    Thanks for all the LOLs, support and advice. Happy new year everyone.

    😃😘

    Thanks yeah I really need it. I'm finding I am way too invested in everything and turning into a zealot.
