A little sad, and may be a bit crazy!

A little sad, and may be a bit crazy!

Today my little girl is 1 year old. I can’t believe it. I mean it went quickly with my first but with her, my second, it really has flown by and I say that with no exaggeration. And that’s why I feel sad, I barely remember those early newborn days now, where she was...

They say everything happens for a reason, but when your Mum dies young it’s hard to find any sort of reason why that would happen. But to my Mum, who died nearly 9 years ago now, I want to say thank you. Because when she left us she set me on a different path and now...

10 things I’ve learnt after having number 2

10 things I’ve learnt after having number 2

It’s early days for me, but these are my early lessons of having 2 small children. It’s hard looking a toddler and a newborn on your own. Not only do you need an enormous amount of energy and patience (difficult when you’re not sleeping at night) but you need eyes in...
Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

I love Mother’s Day, it’s such a special day. It’s very different today from what it was a few years ago. Mother’s Day was always about finding the perfect gift for my Mum, how could I find something that was perfect for my special Mum? And trying to write the perfect...
