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.

Latest From The Blog

Found out last week I’ve been included on The 100 Most Inspiring Women of Ireland List of 2019 as part of The Graham Norton Gin Inspiring Awards 2019. Pretty chuffed.

It’s possible I should start off by the saying that you should really enjoy the baby making sessions because there may come a time when squeezing in more than a thirty second smooch becomes tedious. But that may put you off the idea of having kids and what would be the point of that. Let […]

It’s never too late to go back to school and continue your education. That being said, having to study whilst juggling the role of a parent can make it a lot more challenging. I’ve been tempted, over the years, to take on an online course but I will admit, the commitment to a two or […]

My recovery was a long eighteen months combining so many actions on a daily basis to keep my head flying higher than the flamingo. What did I do?

I was once asked, on the radio no less to thousands of listeners, to describe what anxiety feels like. Where do you start? Anxiety isn’t simply a nervousness that makes you indecisive.

Something transpired out of motherhood, rising from the ashes like a giant pink flamingo. It probably began earlier than I care to admit, but a few weeks after Devin was born, my focus was gone, my routine and schedule, all fragmented and I suddenly felt this overwhelming urge to blow up. It was less to […]

I haven’t been the best blogger lately have I? I used to feel guilty over having 4+ weeks gap between posts but I’ve a new lease of life lately and my number one rule is to attempt to get rid of the guilt which likes to creep in and hover of my head and every […]

There are days, quite a lot of them, when I don’t feel like the adult in this Momma Bear, Baby Bear scenario. Allegra crept up to me one afternoon and wrapped her dainty arms around my legs and hugged me hard. The little mite, in her tiny years and few short feet, has grown up […]
