Now you're almost three

Now you're almost three
When my little boy was born I remember hearing or reading a post (I don't remember all that well) about a mum who writes a letter to their child each Birthday. Even for those early Birthdays when her child couldn't read yet, there was a letter for them to pick up when they got older. Knowing that holding onto memories with my little boy was so impo...

Easing lockdown

Easing lockdown
The first I knew of the most recent lockdown changes was a text from my neighbour, she'd messaged to say I could see my family again. If I'm really honest, in that moment when I read her message I felt a bit emotional. I didn't know the details, exactly how it would all work, but the first thing I thought of was how much seeing family would mean to...

Lockdown letter

Lockdown letter
I've got to admit I get mum guilt a lot, I guess that's the thing about being a mum, we usually want everything perfect for our little people. During lockdown I feel especially guilty that I can't explain what's going on to my boy, he's too little to understand. So, I thought I would write to my boy and let it all out, who knows, maybe one day when...

Down in lockdown

Down in lockdown
It's been a few weeks of lockdown, don't ask me how many because I've completely lost count, but this last week has felt the toughest so far for me.

But sometimes admitting that things are feeling tough is the bes...

Something missing

Something missing
We're all missing something right now, even if it's that McDonald's breakfast we haven't had in months but now really fancy because we can't have it. I'm definitely missing a lot of things and because I never know if or when I'll ever miss these things again, I thought I would share. I'm not going to talk about the people I miss because that's a wh...

That was Easter

That was Easter
So there we have it, that was Easter. I'm not sure if you had anything planned before lockdown, but it's been sad hearing about all of the special things people have been missing out on. Thankfully in my house we're a bit last minute with things like that. Then when it comes to special occasions, normally it's a source of stress, but this Easter, w...

Coping with social distancing

Coping with social distancing
As any mum out there knows, we all need to find a way to cope now we have children. Something to rely on when we've been up half the night for no obvious reason (though everyone will guess the reason for you just to make it that much more painful) or we're bored of telling the kids to stop playing with toilet paper (it's valuable now don't you know...
