I haven't posted in a while but I couldn't miss posting about The Walled Gardens fairy trail on our family holiday last month.
So we have found that Isabella is going to become a big sister in 2019! We are currently in Dunbar, Scotland on a family holiday so will update my blog once I'm back. We're on our way to The Walled Fairy Gardens today 😄 X
I hate to sound cheesy but this book changed my life. This book should be read by every mum-to-be and new mum. Unfortunately, I read this book after going through depression, anxiety and PTSD but had I read this before, or even during that time, I could have made more sense of what I was … Continue reading Book Review – The Supermum Myth (become a happier mum by overcoming anxiety, ditching guilt and embracing imperfections)
No, I'm not on about the male appendage. I'm on about that evil, dark, shit stain that is depression. I haven't posted in over a month. I felt good for a few weeks, then slowly but surely felt more anxious, until it was effecting me that much that I start getting depressed. I didn't want … Continue reading The Big D
A last minute trip to our local woodland Hem Heath Woods resulted in finding a fledgling blue tit, lots of bugs and an old tyre that we are up cycling to make a fairy garden 😄
The weather was touch and go but we decided to go to one of our many woodland spaces at Downs Bank. We decided to hide some stones for #staffsmilestones on Facebook and find some more to paint First nearly full length picture of Izzy and I in over a year ❤

The theme was snails and slugs and started off Izzy painting her very own snail on a paper plate. Then we ventured off around the lake and into a field for bug hunting. … Continue reading Day 1 of 30 Days Wild
So this is what Izzy extracted from her own nose today. I bought some sugar free sugar puffs for my breakfast and she asked for some this morning, so I gave her a handful and she wolfed them down. I went to get her a yoghurt and when I turned round she was messing with … Continue reading Everybody Nose 😂
Izzy and I went to our fortnightly Wildlings session today, hosted by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. Last time we went there (before my diagnosis) my anxiety was bad and we ended up only staying for 30 minutes. This time we stayed for the full 90 minutes, we did the gruffalo trail into the woods, played … Continue reading Wildlings therapy
These might seem like just normal pictures but these were the moments that still massively effect me. I still can't talk about Izzy's birth or the first 6 weeks of her life without crying. The bottom left was the day she was born, I'd gone through nearly 3 days of labour (I failed to progress … Continue reading Birth story – long post warning!
