Is it just me, or does anybody else go over the top with the cleaning when you know you have visitors coming? I actually turn into a bit of a cleaning monster if I’m honest with you. This week we had my daughters two year assessment with the Health Visitor. I spent a couple of […]

Mama Down

I’m usually a positive thinker and I am grateful for every single thing I have in my life.  From the smallest things, to the biggest of things, like my beautiful daughter. But sometimes, it feels like no amount of positive thinking can stop the negativity from seeping in… A couple of weeks ago I found […]
