Welcome to the second post in the My rainbow baby blog series.
I have created this series in the wish that it will give hope to anyone who has experienced baby loss or is struggling to have a longed for baby.
Little Miss H and Little Mister H are not the only rainbow babies. There are many of them. And I want to share the beautiful and poignant tales of these special little rainbows.
I am inviting others to tell these stories. To talk about these precious children in their own words. And I will collate them on my blog so that there is a shared space where these stories of hope are held.
I am honoured that today I am joined by Jo from Miracle Max, who will be sharing the story of her gorgeous little boy Max.read more
Before becoming a mother, I was a charity fundraiser. I cared deeply and I wanted to make a difference in the world. But since becoming a mother, my desire to help other’s has increased. And I’m especially drawn to organisations and social enterprises that help disadvantaged and vulnerable children. That is why I was thrilled when From Babies with Love asked me to review some products from their AW16 Capsule Collection of beautiful organic baby clothes.read more
Earlier this month we packed up our car and drove for 5 hours to Pembrokeshire. Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales had invited us for an early Christmas break and to visit their 2016 Christmas experience Kingdom of the Elves.
This is my first post about our winter holiday at Bluestone. I thought that I would begin by sharing a review of the accommodation, the resort itself and our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves. In a few days time I will share another post about what we got up to at Bluestone (it rained almost non-stop when we were there and so we spent the majority of our time on the Resort). And I have also produced a little video of our break which features a short tour of our lodge.read more
For Little Miss H’s second Christmas I compiled a list of activities for us to do during Advent. Last year I planned to do this again but unfortunately it did not happen. I was so anxious during my pregnancy that I wasn’t able to concentrate on anything else.
This year everything is different.
Little Mister H is almost five months old. Little Miss H is now at pre-school. And I am in a much better place. So once again I plan to do an activity a day with my children during Advent.
I thought I would share our list with you just in case you are looking for some inspiration of activities to do with your children on the run up to Christmas. (You can always pin this post so that you can come back to it on another day).read more
Little Mister H is actually nearer five months old then four months old. But last week was one of those weeks. As a result, my blog was forgotten about and Little Mister H’s four-month update is very late.read more
14 years ago today, I woke up in hospital. I was still alive.
The night before I had taken numerous packets of ibuprofen in an attempt to kill myself.
I can’t describe in words the desolation I felt that I had not succeeded. That I was still alive. That I had to carry on living with the endless turmoil and numbness of depression.read more
Today has been one of those days.
One of those days that hasn’t gone as planned. One of those days that is drawing to a close and has left me exhausted and a little emotional.
Yesterday was also one of those days.read more
