The Summer Holidays have started and similar to last year I already have a list as long as my arm of new places I want to visit and regular spots we go to every year. Living in Shropshire means there is already so much available on our doorstep so I thought I'd share some of… Continue reading Shropshire
Ever since I was a teen I've loved taking pictures, I was always hiding in my bedroom trying to find new ways to take "the best selfie" or posing in some way. Yet actually, I hate having my picture taken, I get awkward and self-conscious and always feel like a whale. I remember when Luke… Continue reading Photographs
We are incredibly lucky to live in an area with so much history, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, Buildwas Abbey, I could go on. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Shropshire and I'm surprised by how many I've never been to. Cosford is one of those places, I've gone past it on the train… Continue reading Cosford

I started this blog to help with my grief, a strategy to let my emotions spill out on to the page and release my head of everything going on. For me, this meant I could be a stronger person for everyone else, I could deal with my own grief in a quieter, more private way… Continue reading Proud Mummy Moment!
Celebrations are a funny thing when grieving. Sometimes they are filled with dread, a birthday, a due date, the anniversary of the death. Even happier times can be dreaded, holidays without that person, anniversaries etc. Our Anniversary wasn't dreaded, for the first time ever we were looking forward to our anniversary. Something we haven't had… Continue reading Celebrations.
I've been quiet for the past few days, I haven't really known what to write or how I'm feeling. Since the release of the Pokemon Go app i've felt like myself again. The old me. Not the me who has had a baby and cremated her baby but the childish girl who loved Pokemon growing… Continue reading Pokemon Go…
