We have gone roughly 2 and a half years without Ellie being ill. As a newborn she was very sicky, she had reflux and an intolerance to cow's milk which of cause made her very sick. It took us until she was around 3 months for her intolerance to be diagnosed and I remember going… Continue reading Sickness Bugs
In an ideal world I'd have been one of those nervous parents waiting to find out what school my boy had gotten in to. In an ideal world he'd have been accepted to the primary school where I work!

Wow, as always, the final few days of March were horrendous. I have said for a while now that for me, the build up to an anniversary is always harder than the day. This has been the case for all of Jason's birthdays. I find the days leading to his birth/death hit me far harder… Continue reading Always One Missing

It took a while and a complete breakdown for me to realise that I wasn't failing. I have spent days, weeks, months… Continue reading Positive Failure
We visited Enginuity, which is a science museum in Ironbridge, (Telford, Shropshire) during this half term and is one of ten museums in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site. We are incredibly lucky to have these museums on our doorstep and want to make use of what our great town has to offer.
Do you ever feel like the world is spinning so fast and you start to feel so dizzy and there's no way of slowly it down? As much as I am putting in to life and being present, my own mental health is taking a huge bashing. I am constantly worried about everyone else, about… Continue reading Breakdown
I'm not good at self-care, I find it difficult to MAKE time for myself since Ellie was born. The Positive Wellbeing 'Zine for Mums does exactly what Emma envisaged, it promotes positivity in a world that can be extremely hard for new mums, actually on all mums! #winningasamummy #review #zineformums #isabellaandus #motheringarainbow #mblogger #pblogger #gifted
