*TRIGGER WARNING* ‘We have found there was no reason for it’. For the 2nd time in that hospital time stood still. The consultant handed me a box of tissues. Tears were escaping. I couldn’t help it.

Instead quite often they are fighting for their lives, learning how to survive when they weren’t ready to… View Post

The mince pies, Christmas cards, gifts, Christmas puddings, they’re all in the shops. It’s time. It’s time to start writing those lists, planning the big day, oh I love it.

Today’s gift guide is for baby. I think buying presents for babies can sometimes be a bit tricky especially if they are newborn so I have picked a few things that I… View Post
