Hosting The Perfect Teletubbies Playdate #TubbyPlaydates

We were sent the Teletubbies Playdate pack and merchandise for the purpose of this post. We were also compensated for our time. However, as always all words, opinions and photographs are my own and are 100% honest. When Little Miss H was younger she had a group of friends that we’d met at a post-natal group. We used to see each other at least once a week. And the children all became firm friends. Hosting a playdate was the perfect…

This is a sponsored post. Italy has always fascinated me. I studied Classical Civilisation and Ancient History at university. And it was the Roman culture and history that intrigued me the most.

Welcome back to Our Weekend Happy. The fabulous linky that I host with the gorgeous Lisa from Mummascribbles. How is your week going? Are you okay? I’m feeling very tired at the moment. Little Mister H has clearly decided that he no longer wants to be a good sleeper. And so it takes about 40 minutes to go down for a nap. I hope he returns to his usual form soon. Mummy is shattered.

Living With Depression: A Nervous Breakdown & A Diagnosis

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s a week that is hugely important, as we still have such a long way to go before we’ve broken the stigma that surrounds mental ill health. Last year, I wrote a post for Mental Health Awareness Week claiming that I was going to start sharing my story of living with depression, beginning with my nervous breakdown and diagnosis. Yet, these posts never materialised. Writing your own tale of living with depression is…

Dear Ruth, my Community Midwife I’ve been meaning to write this letter to you since Little Mister H was born. Yet there never seems to be the time. But today is International Day of the Midwife. So today is the right time to write a proper thank you letter to you. Because I’m so thankful and truly grateful for everything you did for me during my pregnancy with Little Mister H. I honestly don’t think I would have got through…
