If you have clicked on this I would imagine it more out of curiosity than anything else. Is going for a coffee on your own really a big deal? To many people probably not but to an anxiety sufferer in particular me it was quite the achievement. Back when Little Man was a baby I remember doing it. I sat in a garden centre cafe with my baby and my drink happy as larry for all of five minutes. What followed was a screaming baby, me feeling like everyone was looking at me and £3.50 of hot chocolate being wasted… View Post

As I am starting a new year on this blog I thought I would have a little look back at the 5 most read posts of 2017. Last year my blog took a massive turn in terms of content. This was a natural change for me because my life had changed so much in the second half of 2016. The most read posts really do reflect this and I am so very glad they are reaching people that need to read them.

So December seems to have flown by and here we about to enter the Christmas weekend. I will be having a few days off this blog (not Instagram, I’m addicted) of mine to properly enjoy the festivities with our family. It has felt like a bit of a whirlwind month whilst trying to find my feet and routines in my new stay at home mum role but we’ve had fun. An elf came to visit for the first time (I have consequently spent every evening lying in bed trying to remember if I moved the damn thing), we’ve worn Christmas… View Post
