A Mom Blog Social Network
A friend of mine, who also has a child with disabilities, recently sent me the piece of writing that follows. Unfortunately she did not write it, and did not know who had originally penned it, and I sadly have been unable to find out who did. If I ever do, I will of course update this to reflect the author and if I ever had the chance to meet them I would love to shake their hand for so…

Although I have only been blogging for about 3 months, the fact that I have been unable to do it for the last two weeks has been very noticeable. I had started to be able to get to sleep quicker when I went to bed, the thoughts in my head having been laid to rest on, well I was going to say paper, but really a lap top screen and it was giving me a tiny piece of time for me in a week where as a mother and wife you are constantly looking…Continue

With this beautiful October weather still gracing us with it's presence, it has been like having 'bonus' days for getting out in the fresh air. None more so than for a trip to the park.
Now I feel very lucky with the park facilities near to where we live as there are several choices (probably due to it being a seaside resort) but my…Continue

When my mum was my age (early thirties) and I was just a wee, little [cough, angelic....er who can I hear laughing?] girl my mum got into the hobby of photography.

I was planning on doing this post for my Monday Madness, however, our own health madness really kicked in with a vengence this week and the weekend saw myself laid up in bed unwell, and then 'The Hubby' got taken into hospital for emergency surgery on Monday and it has been a whirlwind of arranging suitable childcare so that I can visit in the measly hours they allow at the hospital. …

A week has passed by and with it a change in the weather, so I can no longer be thankful to the 'oh so amazing' warm sun and breeze that grazed my skin (still thankful for the spell that we did enjoy) this time last week, not that I am complaining now, we are officially in 'Autumn' weather, crisp but (thankfully) dry which is very pleasant in it's own right.
But I am…Continue

For those of you that have already read the Page on my Blog called 'My Birth Story - J1' most of this you will already know, but I feel it is important both for myself as the author and anyone who happens to follow this feature to start right from the very beginning.

One thing my husband and I often do not agree wholly on is what is an appropriate amount of money to spend on clothes and shoes. Hubby is a lot more... liberal shall we say, with funds than I am!
I admit when I was a working women I was not as conscious as I am now of spending and have been known to partake in purchasing a few too many pairs of Karen Millen shoes and…Continue
