Remember your worth.

I’m not really writing this blog post for me, this one is a bit different to normal and has actually been inspired by a friend. A friend that’s just having it a bit tough lately and could do with some love and support from her friends. She’s just got me thinking. You see this girl…

Pass it on.

Toddler P got her first proper bike the other day, it was such a fun and special moment. A proper bike, pedals, stabilisers and a basked on the handle bars. I was flung back to 1989 when Poppa M ran the length and breadth of our street and driveway pushing me on mine until I…

Your own responsibility.

The only person in charge of your happiness is you. Regular readers will know how I thrive on having my own independence and taking responsibility for my own things, even more so since I’ve overcome events in my life over that last couple of years. My recent Just Watch Me Post demonstrates just that. However,…

Her perspective.

Me and toddler P have had a great day. It’s been a long week or couple of weeks for us both. We’ve gone back to almost normality with some added restrictions still in place after 6 months together. 6 months. Just me and my sidekick bestie mini me (and Granny T thrown in for good…

Corona birthday.

It’s been a funny year hasn’t it? Fair to say it’s been crap for just about everybody, some a lot more than others. The past couple of days I encountered a couple of first world problems and laughed, proper belly laughed about them, which was good because at one time I’d have seen them as…

Double trouble.

There’s two new welcome additions to the learning to cope household. B and Z the feline brothers have arrived and stolen our hearts. I was originally only meant to get one kitten but long story short I fell soft when collecting fluffy B so bundled up his brother Z and brought them home to surprise…

Easy Breezy.

This morning wasn’t a good morning. I was trying to run a tight ship and get me and toddler P out the door on time with the washing hung out, my HIIT workout complete and the bed she’d decided to wet made with fresh bedding. What actually happened was... She refused to eat her breakfast,…

Peter Pan.

Some things you just never grow out of and mostly these are things that you just shouldn’t want to grow out of either, because they’re fun, exciting, still special and so so simple, they’re the activities where you’re allowed to be Peter Pan and never grow up. Toddler P and I went for fish and…

Poppa M.

Completely out of the blue this morning, toddler P made my heart melt into a million pieces. I was filled with love for her and her sweet nature but also had that bittersweet feeling of sadness that Pops isn’t here to witness it all. I was buttering her toast with marmalade (Poppa M’s favourite) and…

Just watch me.

The last words of my ex husband to me were, “is that really what you want? And you think you’ll cope as a single mum?” “Just fucking watch me!” Is what I muttered to myself as I walked away. And it’s safe to say I’ve done more than cope. I actually love it...most of the…
