Santa is real.

I've just read the most heart warming story about how to talk about the truth of Santa with your child it was on this Facebook post and I love it. It sums up the true spirit of Christmas and giving for the sake of giving. It's about kindness because kindness should be something you do…

More than just a mum.

So I'm sat nursing a hangover, sobering up and bracing myself to go get crazy toddler P. I've missed her, she spent the night at Granny T's whilst I went out for a few (ahem too many) drinks with my surrogate baby sister gal pal. It was a bit of an impromptu last minute plan…

Being Brave.

I did something really bold the other day.  Before I tell you what I need to add some context.  I've come along way on my journey, I've become much stronger, independent and confident, I'm not there yet and have a long way to go but I'm moving forward nicely.  Until recently, recent weeks and couple…

She knows who you are.

Why aren’t you here now?

Sometimes it really pisses me off, like tonight, just now. It really pisses me off that Poppa M's not here anymore. He's not here when I need him. And I'm not even talking big stuff, I'm talking the small stuff. The "dad" jobs. Like buffing a scratch out of your car, changing the battery in…

It’s never too early for Christmas.

So I was categorically told by one of my best friends that it was too early to get in the festive spirit. Balls to that is what I said and yesterday I donned my Christmas sparkly jumper (fully equipped with Christmas bells) and a tree light necklace and went for drinks with good friends. I…
