I've been working in Tokyo most of the past 3 weeks. Only one of those weeks was planned and the two other visits were last minute trips. By the third visit I felt totally frazzled and burnt out. A combination of overnight flights (it's 7 hours from Singapore to Tokyo), 80 hour work weeks, a … Continue reading Pause
There's a lot going on right now. One thing that's not going on is my period! It has been almost 2 months since the miscarriage and 6 weeks since the surgery and my period hasn't come back yet. I've got a tonne of work travel on this month and have no weekdays in Singapore until … Continue reading New beginnings
It's officially spring in the Northern hemisphere. My favourite time of year, although living in Singapore there is hardly any variation in weather all year round. Spring is a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, and spring cleaning! The day of my most recent miscarriage I deleted Facebook from my phone. I couldn't bear the … Continue reading Streamlining
Finally feeling like the haze has lifted a little. It has been a difficult few weeks and I feel like I've been a robot, just going through the motions everyday until it's time to go to bed at night, wake up and do the same again the next day. Mum has gone home now and … Continue reading Moving forwards

It feels good to be doing something rather than waiting. The Gonal-F will stimulate my follicules to produce and mature eggs. I'll be … Continue reading Here we go!
Day 4 of 2019, still waiting for my period! Working from home today, getting the air-conditioning serviced and waiting for a parcel. Work is nice and quiet - most people are easing back in to the grind after the Christmas and New Year holidays. I'm off to London on Monday then Barcelona then Tokyo. It's … Continue reading Delayed onset gratitude
Last week I was at a conference in Vancouver. Our Global CEO was there too. We had a meeting about some work matters. At the end he told me he wanted to talk about something personal. He told me he knows about my personal situation and wanted to let me know he's there if I … Continue reading Accidentally telling the boss!
Another long haul flight and another round of high altitude crying! This time it's The Good Doctor. Watched an entire season and every episode had heart wrenching moments! On my way to North America. First stop Vancouver, via Hong Kong. Tomorrow morning I fly to Denver to stay with a former colleague and their family. … Continue reading Altitude attitude
