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.

When I became Momma Bear I swore I would never let my baby cry it out. It’s cruel and unkind. Babies are not mature enough to understand how to manipulate us. They simply want us. And Little Bean wants Momma. All the time. To the detriment of her sleep… and mine. But then I realised […]

Since moving to the countryside three years ago, we’ve been dealing with some oh so very very low internet speeds. It’s a by-product of living slap bang in the middle of fields. Having poor internet has had an affect on our Netflix addiction. But we’ve struggled on and found some amazing Netflix Originals that have […]

It`s late and we are sleepy, The air is cold and still. Our jack-o-lantern grins at us Upon the window sill. We`re stuffed with cake and candy And we`ve had a lot of fun, But now it`s time to go to bed And dream of all we`ve done. We`ll dream of ghosts and goblins And […]

Being Momma Bear has changed me. I’ve changed drastically and dramatically and for the better. We grow up, drag ourselves in to the world of adulthood and expect nothing. For some people things don’t change. They blend from one decade to the next with the same ideals and shoes. Others change quickly, become bigger, better […]

Our first family holiday has just ended. We had a fantastic jam packed week full of brilliant memories. We travelled all the way to Ireland’s Ancient East and settled ourselves down for a week in Kilmore, County Wexford. The thoughts of travelling on a plane, train or boat with Little Bean was stressful enough so […]

“Mammy, is it my birthday yet?” has been one of the repetitive questions of the year. Little Miss is not impressed that she is still four and has been eagerly awaiting for her birthday. October is her favourite month. Its Halloween after all but more importantly her birthday.

In June, we visited our local country school. The school that will take Little Miss from junior infants at a tender age of four years eleven months all the way up to an inconceivable eleven years old and an added seven months. What kind of little girl will she be at the end of this […]
