The Day After The Great Day Before

by | 12 Jun 2016

The great thing about the day after the great day before is that you can get up early, walk across Hampstead Heath and down through Primrose Hill and Regents Park to Marylebone High Street for Turkish Eggs and Black Pudding at Providores for breakfast. Then you can go the Everyman on Baker Street and watch the 10.40am screening of Me Before You and stay until the end of the credits with tears rolling down your face. Then you can go for a two hour massage followed by a cream tea in The Wallace Collection courtyard. And then you can take the bus home, change the sheets (for the first time in weeks) and get into bed super early and plan an evening of trash TV.

Fertility Fest was amazing yesterday. Thank you to everyone who was there. The great thing about the day after the great day before is that whilst you’re doing all these lovely things you can remember it with a smile.

    I am a changed woman after Fertility Fest! Thank you so much Jessica and Gabby and everyone who played a part in the event. I felt so at home with you all on Saturday. I came away feeling there is nothing to be ashamed of about my diagnosis of unexplained infertility. I am passionate about doing more in the field myself, to end the stigma. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

      Wow, that’s the sort of opening statement I dream of! I’m so happy that you came on Saturday. I know sometimes it’s hard not to feel inadequate when you’re living with infertility (I have felt it myself) but the more we talk and share, the less alone and ashamed we’ll all feel. Please do keep in touch, we’d love your support in the future and feel free to email me with thoughts and ideas anytime. Jessica x

        Brilliant Jessica. I would absolutely love to get more involved in future Fertility Fests – there is absolutely nothing as good as being in a theatre full of people who understand.

    Sounds like a perfect day after to me. Except for the Turkish eggs.
