    Written last night while travelling with the tube…. I sit here. I’m on the tube. I like listening to music when I travel by tube. I sit here and I look around. So many souls travelling with this tube every single day,hour,minute… I like guessing what people are talking about…I like imaging the life they have…we are all souls that feel,love,suffer,exist… In front of me there is a couple. They both read the same newspaper, they are not holding hands but every now end then they look at each other and talk. You can see how much they live each other by they look in each other eyes. It’s like…

He was on a break living in a foreign country with his mates. I was young and aspiring to a fulfilling…

    How to improve your relationship

    As parents, we’ve all been there. Your bundle of joy can be more like a grenade lobbed into the middle of your life. It explodes everything you used to know and be. Hopefully, though, when you’ve got over the initial shock, all your pieces fit together in a new way that makes everything even better than before. So, what are the main challenges facing you both as you blithely set out on the parenting path? What pitfalls do we all sink into at some stage? And how can we overcome them to keep alive the two who were there long before two became three? That bone-deadening exhaustion of the early…
