Over Heaven's Hill is a Lifestyle Blog which has seen a few revolutions since its inception in 2016. What began as a parenting blog, morphed into a lifestyle, health and wellness blog with parenting and family mingled in between. I'm Geraldine. I'm Momma Bear to two beautiful girls, who encouraged me to take a leap of faith. I quit my 12 year career as a Medical Librarian, in 2018, to work from home and look after our daughters. What began as a dream morphed into a reality. I now work as a Freelance Writer, writing for national newspapers, magazines, websites and blogs, as well as this here little blog. I am also a Freelance Media Consultant and Content Creator, managing social media accounts for those who are time poor but information rich.

Lets jump on the Marie Kondo bandwagon shall we? Now I know most of you heard of her before the Netflix series took centre stage, but I, my friends, had not. Despite her sailing into our lives in 2014 with her book detailing the KonMari method of de-cluttering, in other words retaining only what “sparks […]

I’m living in fear of snow this week. Last years snow drifts, while beautiful and temporarily fun to play in before the ice cold creeps into your bones, has left me willing and wishing the weather man will say we’ve escaped with a sprinkling of the white stuff. When I was five, I longed for […]

Sleep. Oh sleep, you wickedly wonderful, but often never had, state of being. I need my sleep. I needed sleep before kids. I need my sleep after kids. We all know how that story goes. Sleep becomes a distant memory and we challenge ourselves to find new ways to keep going until bedtime. Anything to […]

I’d absolutely love it if this was some inspirational post about being the sickest and coolest and most epic Momma Bear – which I realise makes me sound so incredibly uncool – but it’s all about when Momma Bear is sick and boy do I know what that’s like.

It’s January. We’re all a little fed up. But we’re also jumping pretty damn hard and fast on the rejuvenating band wagon. One thing I’ve learned over this winter, is how self-care is vital for Momma and Papa Bear. Over January I plan on posting a few blogs about putting yourself first. We all know, […]

Here it is. The start of a brand new year when expectations are high and disappointments seem so far away or even impossible. When new beginnings can mean everything and anything and certainly have no place for failure. When day one is exciting with a new mind embracing new challenges. What will you do in […]
