The Diary of a Working Mum {Part Three}

The Diary of a Working Mum {Part Three} Another stunning guest post from my beautiful friend Heather in our series (to read Heather’s other posts click here) Feel the Fear and do it anyway On October the 9th 2011, I went back to work. Nick and I had decided that he would take my first full week back as annual leave, so I could get to grips with my new responsibilities at the council, without the added worry of how Martha…

WHY WE WON’T BE HAVING ANY MORE BABIES

WHY WE WON’T BE HAVING ANY MORE BABIES

Why We Won’t Be Having Any More Babies Our beautiful daughter Eden turned 2 last Thursday.  I can’t believe it, 2 years old.  The time has flown and dragged all at the same time.  She was the most peaceful and teeny baby for so long, she would always look at me with so much expression, I used to think there were times she was mocking me, but would dismiss it as she was tiny.  She still pulls those faces now…

World Prematurity Day

World Prematurity Day I have a beautiful friend who has been guest posting a couple of times on my blog, she doesn’t have her own blogging platform, but I believe her voice is powerful and she inspires me everytime she encourages me through a private message on facebook, or on email.  She has been writing my ‘Diary of a Working Mum’ series and if you’ve read any you’ll agree, she’s a gifted writer, she also has a beautiful little girl…

SIBLINGS IN DECEMBER

SIBLINGS IN DECEMBER

Siblings in December I can’t believe that it’s the end of another year.  So much has happened this year.  My Siblings posts aren’t yet on this blog… I’m really pleased that I started this new blog this year.  It’s nowhere near where I want it to be, it needs so much doing to it, organising and posts moving across but for now I am enjoying remembering why I love blogging, vlogging and my passion for photography.  I’ve posted a lot…

THE DIARY OF A WORKING MUM {PART TWO}

THE DIARY OF A WORKING MUM {PART TWO}

Wrestling my thoughts. Attending interviews half way through my maternity leave is not something I ever envisaged myself doing. I had been out of the ‘work loop’ for nearly 5 months and my employers were under an obligation to ‘redeploy’ me in a role they saw fit unless I agreed to take redundancy. Each week I was sent a list of vacant posts that were deemed suitable to my skill-set, and it was up to me which I applied for. I would automatically be…

THE DAY I FAILED MY FAMILY

THE DAY I FAILED MY FAMILY

The Day I Failed My Family Ok, so I may be being slightly melodramatic but yesterday I arrived home from university and sobbed so hard it was like someone had died.  I really did feel as though I had failed my family.  Being a busy working Mum and student Mum is not an easy task.  I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that life throws my way but I am tired a lot of the time and I…

Children in Bikinis : Yay or Nay?

Children in Bikinis : Yay or Nay?

Since becoming a Mum I have always been quite anti children in bikinis, I didn’t really give it too much thought, I just didn’t like the idea of them looking old before their time.  Obviously no parent likes the idea of their child being looked at inappropriately but I wondered recently if it was as black and white as the fact that I don’t want them wearing them. Isis at aged 9 is growing up so quickly, the idea of…

The A-line Skirt

The A-line Skirt

Fewer cuts, if any, are considered to be more flattering than the trusted A-line skirt.  Even as a plus-sized Mum the shape manages to make my chunky legs look less so.  It is definitely one of my favourite cuts, in a dress and a skirt.  It has not however previously been a style I have chosen often for our girls, as I have never been particularly struck by one as we were this beautiful item from Monsoon.  I’m not usually…
