And so with a blink of an eye, Summer is over and we are all back to work this week.
Thought I would write up an update on where we are.
From the day Ellie was born me and my husband decided that we didn’t want her pictures plastered all over the internet.
August 19th in the babyloss community is A Day of Hope. Last year I wrote a post about what I hoped the following months and year would bring.
I thought rather than go back over things I have written in the past (plenty of time for that I’m sure) I decided to focus on writing about our current sleep situation or lack of might I add.
Here is to a positive start. I have dabbled with a few blogs in the past but found that they didn’t have the same purpose I set out for them to have and therefore the point of the blog was irrelevant. I will explain more as time goes on but for now I’d like to give you a bit of my story.
I am a wife and a mother. I have 2 children however to the outside world I will always only have one. I married my husband 3 years ago but we have been together for 11. I found out I was pregnant with my first child just weeks after getting married and the whirlwind of becoming parents took over.

I am a part-time Teaching Assistant in a primary school where I work with children who have Special Educational Needs and I love my job.
I am also an avid gamer, a geek, a bookworm, a bargain hunter, an Instagram enthusiast and a novice blogger.
