I have taken a break from blogging recently, I found that it wasn't really helping me deal with my grief and for me I needed to find a way to deal with daily life without writing about it. I hated how negative my blog seemed when reading it and I also hated how talking about … Continue reading New Blog.
This heat has absolutely killed me. I'm not good when it is warm and neither is hubby (with him being ginger). I burn really easily and feel very sick if its too warm so I have been hiding inside most of the time. With Ellie being ginger haired too I've been worried about her getting … Continue reading Heatwave and our lack of sleep.
As usual the past 2 weeks seem to have been hectic. I have had so many blogs in my head and just no time to post and now they seem pretty pointless. It dawned on me this week that in less than a month I will be back at work and my maternity leave will … Continue reading Time for Me.
June marks the beginning of SANDS awareness month. Their campaign this year focuses on the number 15. 15 babies a day. 15 babies a day die. This is such a huge number for a topic that is so widely unspoken of. Not just 15 babies but 15 mums, 15 dads, 15 grandparents are all affected … Continue reading JUNE
I started this blog to help with my grief, a strategy to let my emotions spill out on to the page and release my head of everything going on.

Ten steps back. I'm going to be as honest as I ever am and admit that for a few weeks I have not been myself. Life in general has taken it's toll on me and I could feel myself spinning in a downwards spiral not sure whether I was going to be able to pick … Continue reading One step forward…
I havent slept properly in weeks. E is 6 and half months and her sleep seems like a newborn again. She falls asleep well to start with but then shes up every 2 hours. This morning she decided 2am was play time even though shes yawning, yesterday play time was at 3:30. She usually wakes … Continue reading Sleep?
Tonight I spent a few hours while Ellie slept sorting through her small clothes and bagging them up in to vaccuum bags until I know someone who wishes to look through them. Such a simple task and something as a parent you do all the time. Shes now in 6-9month clothes so there was quite … Continue reading Guilt.
Things have been going well here (probably the reason why I havent blogged for a while) and we are all in a good place mentally. Hubby is back at work and me and Ellie are getting into a nice little routine while we get to grips with 3 lots of solids a day! We had … Continue reading 28Th April…
Life in general gets away from me at times and I find I am constantly chasing my tail and playing catch up. Since Jason's birthday I have thrown myself in to daily life as much as possible to try and ease the grief I have been feeling. For the majority it has worked. Ive gone … Continue reading Life.
