How to get through a very long flight!

I’ve just booked a monster travel plan for next year and it features a 13h flight to Singapore followed by a 7h flight to Sydney and another 5h flight to Apia, Samoa (with the inherent layovers it’s a staggering 35h spent travelling!).

I’ve seen all these horrors but it never actually hit me how they do in fact tackle motherhood – either from the socially accepted norms perspective or from the multi-dimensional meaning.

Things no-one tells you when you’re adopting

So I’ve had MaryJane for nearly a month now living in my house (not real name) and it’s been quite an experience! Once she moved in, it felt so surreal as all outside communications seemed to have stopped. She’s with me now so what do I do? I tried to maintain the routine as much… Read more »
